    Competent movie with state of the art SFX and speaker destroying
    surround sound. My poor little 8" sub would've been destroyed if I
    hadn't turned the volume down to a manageable level. The movie itself
    was interesting, with a good cast and only somewhat derivative plot.
    Kong was mainly the subject of the movie with Godzilla just showing up
    on a couple of occasions to show he has a really bad attitude. Also a
    nod to a couple of monsters from old school Godzila movies. Storywise
    the evil Apex Corp. reminded me of the Umbrella Corp. of Resident Evil
    movies, and the ending looked a lot like it was lifted from the first
    Pacific Rim movie, but all in all still entertaining in the aggregate.

    Except there were no Hobbits in Middle Earth. The movie was fine except
    the girl from Godzilla: King of the Monsters was kind of side-lined with a couple
    dispensable idiots and they had some new little kid communicating with the monkey the way the miniature women
    communicated with Mothra in the Japanese films.
