Godzilla: King of the Monsters rules so goddamn hard. Easily the most fun I’ve had in theaters all year and the best Monsterverse entry yet.

It’s everything I wanted last movie to b but wasn’t. If u want to see Godzilla fighting other monsters u will b happy. pic.twitter.com/ksswtSey6O

GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS is an all-out Kaiju smackdown & it’s glorious. The 3rd act is simply jaw dropping. @Mike_Dougherty did these majestic creatures justice. Best of the MonsterVerse. Can’t wait to see it again in IMAX. #GodzillaMovie pic.twitter.com/boxAvKbKHK

#GodzillaKingOfTheMonsters is the modern day Godzilla movie you’ve been waiting for. It’s everything the 2014 Godzilla isn’t, while still retaining the best elements of that film and elevating them x 100. Monstrous action that rattles the theater. So damn good. @GodzillaMovie pic.twitter.com/claFZH3oq1

While Fandango’s Erik Davis called Godzilla: King Of The Monsters a “fierce,” “giant-monster” “throwdown” that is the perfect precursor for its upcoming sequel, the rather self-explanatory, Godzilla vs Kong.
#GodzillaKingOfTheMonsters ups the monster action considerably. The battle scenes are gorgeous & fierce & feel ripped from the pages of a gnarly graphic novel. You want a giant-monster movie throwdown, this is it and then some. Can’t wait for that Godzilla vs Kong movie now pic.twitter.com/3RnAOSc00V
