The epic next chapter in the cinematic Monsterverse pits two of the greatest icons in motion picture history against each other–the fearsome Godzilla and the mighty Kong–with humanity caught in the balance. – IMDB
I saw Kong: Skull Island, but I did not see Godzilla or Godzilla: King of the Monsters (probably an honorary title). Hopefully my ignorance won’t ruin what I am sure is a perfectly orchestrated story. Kong wakes up on his island and does his morning exercises, talks to a deaf mute girl, and then throws a tree at the sky breaking through it. Apparently Kong is living in The Truman Show, and for some reason the humans have built a giant dome over an entire island.
Godzilla then attacks some research facility. For what reason? We don’t know, but probably just out of spite. Like a bully would. Millie Bobby Brown’s character now goes on a side quest to figure out why Godzilla appears to be more of a monster on the inside than on the outside.
