GODZILLA VS. KONG First Reactions Are In - Find Out What The Critics Are Saying

The embargo has now lifted on social media reactions for Godzilla Vs. Kong, and the critics have shared their thoughts on the highly-anticipated Monster-Verse mash. Has the movie been well received?

As the release of Godzilla Vs. Kong draws near, the social media embargo for initial reactions has lifted, and several critics who have been lucky enough to get an early look at the movie have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Legendary's Godzilla: King of the Monsters follow-up has been positively received overall, with the action sequences involving the titular Titans coming in for the highest praise. The score, VFX and Adam Wingard's directorial style also appear to be highlights, but it seems the human characters are, yet again, an issue for many.

Despite utilizing strong casts, this has been a problem in all the Monster-Verse movies so far, so it shouldn't really come as much of a surprise. Of course, fans are more concerned with giant monsters punching each other, and in that regard, at least, the movie sounds like it delivers the goods and will hopefully be a significant improvement on the disappointing GKOTM.

Check out some Tweets below.

It's always best not to put too much stock in these early reactions, but we' should get a much better idea of what to expect when the full review embargo lifts on March 29.

“Legends collide as these mythic adversaries meet in a spectacular battle for the ages, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe. The epic clash between the two titans—instigated by unseen forces—is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the Earth.”

Starring Alexander Skarsgard, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, Eiza González, Julian Dennison, Shun Oguri, Jessica Henwick and Brian Tyree Henry, Godzilla Vs. Kong pits the two famous monsters against each other in an epic battle.

Eric Pearson (Thor: Ragnarok) and Max Borenstein (The Terror) wrote the screenplay, with Adam Wingard on board as director. The movie is set for release in theaters and on HBO Max on March 31.
