🔥 ‘Godzilla x Kong’ Levels Up the MonsterVerse

Warner Bros.
Review
‘Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire’ Is the King of the Monster Movies

Adam Wingard wants Godzilla and Kong to kiss, doesn’t he? The director first got the impossibly powerful Titans together in 2021’s Godzilla vs. Kong, and whether he was joking or not, he did express some regret over skirting past their very primal tension.

Of course, the “x” in the title is not actually setting us up for interspecies slash fiction (not yet, anyway). But Godzilla x Kong does feel the most like fan fiction out of all the films in Warner Bros. and Legendary’s “MonsterVerse,” if only because it’s having the most fun in the sandbox.

It feels like Wingard and his creative team have been smashing action figures together for the past three years, searching for a way to synthesize a decade’s worth of very-different monster movies into one cohesive story. Godzilla x Kong absorbs its disparate influences with glee, spitting out an adventure that hums with stimulating sound design, stuns with psychedelic visuals, and coasts on Titan-level charm.
