The worst thing to happen to Hong Kong since the protests, Godzilla vs Kong is too cartoonish to make you care about the collateral damage. Had it been a tad more self-serious (like the last major matchup movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), the wanton destruction in its third act would’ve been unforgivable.

While most other cinematic universes have stumbled, Legendary’s MonsterVerse continues to charge ahead almost out of sheer will, if not audience interest. Until now, the franchise had been a classic case of diminishing returns.
