After a long time of delays, Godzilla vs Kong will finally hit the big and small screens in just about two weeks. Today the social media embargo has lifted giving critics the chance to post their early reactions to the anticipated monster brawl.
First Reactions To Godzilla Vs Kong
The critical reactions are overall pretty positive, praising the action, the bonkers story, the VFX and Adam Wingard’s direction. The human characters still get too much screen time and seemingly have the same problems as in the previous movies in the “Monsterverse”. Apparently, even the high tier ensemble cast can’t change that, if the early reactions are to be believed.
We will get a better look a wider range of critics’ opinions when the Godzilla vs Kong review embargo lifts on March 29.
