    Godzilla wasn’t. There is really no basis in thinking the other monsters would be confined somewhere.

    These movies have plot holes you can fly experimental aircraft through, there’s nothing wrong with pointing it out. You don’t have to respond, after all.

    And maybe you don’t realize it, but being critical AND giving praise are both part of being a “critic”.

    And? My god grow up. So you are admitting. That the movie has plot holes and then attack me for talking about them? Not sure you understand how this message board works.

    I never said it didn’t have plot holes, but I also know what I’m watching. It’s a summer popcorn movie.

    dude nobody is attacking you. Is this how you see yourself? Just a victim all the time? I’m legit curious

    that was the second time on this thread you told someone not to respond to you. I don’t think YOU know how a message board works.

    This whole post is ridiculous. You started this whole conversation with your condescension and now you feign ignorance.

    So, IMO, when it comes to kaiju, Pacific Rim kicks this movie’s ***.

    Godzilla is usually on screen for roughly 10 minutes of his films runtime, on average. He was only in his last 2 films for 22 minutes combined, 10 in Godzilla and 12 in King of the Monsters. Kong had 14 minutes of screen time in Skull Island. They weren't going to brawl for half the runtime of this film. In 3 films they total 36 minutes of screen time. Anyone with expectations of more monster fighting was hoping for something that's never been delivered.

    So?

    If the humans were played better and more interesting, it wouldn't have been a problem. As it is, because the humans were so bad, it would have been welcome to have more monster fighting. I mean, isn't that the reason you watch these films for? Comparing a bad movie to other bad movies of its kind doesn't really make the latest bad movie much better.

    If you thought the last 2 Godzilla films and the last King Kong were all bad then you never should have watched this because those were building to this.

    Years ago, there were rumors of a Godzilla Pacific Rim crossover.

    We were entertained - but the MBB parts felt like contractual obligations more than plot devices.
