Get Ready to Rumble

Godzilla and Kong are back in town for another round of epic Kaiju showdowns in Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, the fifth installment in the Monsterverse saga!

In this latest installment, our favourite titans, Godzilla and Kong, are back in action, causing all sorts of chaos and destruction wherever they go. But this time, the spotlight is on Kong as he embarks on a journey through Hollow Earth, meeting his own kind along the way. Unfortunately, the welcome party isn’t as warm as he hoped, especially with the big bad Skar King leading the charge. And let’s not forget about Skar’s secret weapon, the legendary ice titan, Shimo, who gives Godzilla a run for his money.

Fast forward three years from the last movie, and Godzilla is keeping the peace on Earth while taking leisurely naps in the colosseum in Rome. Meanwhile, Kong is busy making Hollow Earth his own personal playground.

But when mysterious signals start popping up in Hollow Earth and catching Godzilla’s attention, a team is dispatched to investigate. And you better believe Godzilla is gearing up for whatever’s coming next, stocking up on nuclear power like there’s no tomorrow.

Now, let’s talk about the real star of the show: the epic battles. This movie is chock-full of them, guaranteed to keep fans of the Monsterverse glued to their seats. Sure, we’ve seen the destruction before, but it never gets old, does it? Director Adam Wingard knows how to keep things entertaining, with a killer synth soundtrack, eye-popping visuals, and let’s not forget about the incredibly badass pink Godzilla. Oh, and did I mention Kong’s robo-hand? Yeah, that’s a thing, and it’s awesome.

The final showdown may not pack the same punch as previous battles, but it’s still a blast to watch. I mean, who doesn’t love seeing Kong team up with Godzilla to take down the bad guys? And let’s not forget about that epic rematch between the two titans that ends with Godzilla spearing Kong through a pyramid in Egypt. Talk about jaw-dropping!

But let’s be real, Skar King never really stands a chance against our dynamic duo. Without Shimo, Kong would wipe the floor with him. Sorry, Skar, better luck next time.

Now, I know what you’re thinking: What about the human characters? Well, let’s just say they take a backseat to the real stars of the show—the Titans. But hey, we’re here for the epic battles and monster mayhem, and this movie delivers on all fronts.


Overall, Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire is a rollercoaster of a thrill ride that’ll leave you cheering for more. With upgrades for both Godzilla and Kong, plus enough action to satisfy even the most die-hard fans, this movie is a must-see for families and Monsterverse enthusiasts alike. So grab your popcorn, buckle up, and get ready for the ultimate showdown of the century!
