Where do I begin? First and foremost, hand on my heart, I did only watch it because of Millie Bobby Brown. I mean, show me a cooler gal in today’s business, in her age. I’ll wait.
Exactly, there ain’t none – after Stranger Things, I became an immense fan of not only her many talents (the girl is an exceptional singer and rapper) but her personality that is a delight, one that shines through the screen on every interview.

Godzilla 2 bored me to sleep, no joke. It was a snoozing fest from my part because I did actually snooze off somewhere in the middle, it was too dark and too loud. 90% of the film was practically just everyone screaming and explosions, also, it felt like most scenes were shot at midnight.

It simply wasn’t the cinematic experience that I expected, considering it is a movie about giant monsters you’d think there be some entertainment, a real roller coaster but everything was faded by the over-the-top CGI and again, the screams and smoke from the explosions, dragged out scenes and that it was too dark in the sense of visual.
However, I did enjoy not only the acting, but it felt like the film had two plots that collided by the end into one story – a little refreshing to be honest.
I would personally not recommend it, nor watch it again. 4/10
