By now, you should really know what you're going to get from one of these MonsterVerse movies, and if the last few weren't your cup of tea, it doesn't sound like Legendary's latest effort is going to make you a convert.

The review embargo for Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire lifted earlier today, and critics have been sharing their verdicts on Adam Wingard's follow-up to Godzilla Vs. Kong.

So far, the reviews read pretty much as you'd expect: praise for the monster fights and overall spectacle, but it sounds like the nonsensical plot and dull human characters bring the whole thing down.

That said, most of the verdicts do seem to be leaning positive, and the movie has (so far) managed to avoid the dreaded green splat on Rotten Tomatoes with a so-so 62%.

Though this score is sure to change over the next few days, 100 reviews have already been counted, so it may not fluctuate that much.

Rebecca Hall (Dr. Ilene Andrews), Brian Tyree Henry (Bernie Hayes) and Kaylee Hottle (Jia) will reprise their roles from the previous movie, but Millie Bobby Brown and Alexander Skarsgård will not be back, with Legion alum Dan Stevens taking over as the main protagonist. Fala Chen, Alex Ferns and Rachel House also joined the cast.

Director Adam Wingard will collaborate once more with production designer Tom Hammock, editor Josh Schaeffer, and composer Tom Holkenborg. Terry Rossio is back on script duties, along with Jeremy Slater and Wingard's frequent collaborator Simon Barrett.

"This latest entry follows up the explosive showdown of Godzilla vs. Kong with an all-new cinematic adventure, pitting the almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence – and our own. The epic new film will delve further into the histories of these Titans, their origins and the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond, while uncovering the mythic battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings and tied them to humankind forever.

The story sees the legendary Titans Godzilla and Kong team up to face a world-ending threat so terrifying that neither could survive alone."

Like, ok?

Not only is rotten tomatoes a joke now, but it's godzilla. Outside of minus one and the original, godzilla really isn't high critical reception material.

And also, those critics are probably upset they didn't have a strong black lesbian beat up the scar king.

Just saw this tonight because the wife loves anything big monster, big robot, lots of punching.

Her review: “I liked it! But too much people talking and not enough monster fighting.”

TheVisionary25 - 3/28/2024, 8:24 PM
It’s at 57% now from 116 reviews so I could see it likely ending up in the “mixed-mixed to positive” range which isn’t too bad imo given the type of movie it is.

Anyway , I’m here for Kong & Dan Stevens (who has gotten some praise in this) so I’m looking forward to checking it out!!.

Oh , Godzillas cool too i guess ;).

This is much higher a rating than I expected.
EZBeast - 3/28/2024, 8:54 PM
Got a group for it tomorrow and we're all stoked for some epic action!

It's a very fun with some issues can't if it was better than Godzilla vs Kong in some ways it was but in other ways not as good. Yes Dan Stevens is a delight in the movie.
TheVisionary25 - 3/28/2024, 9:16 PM
@Godzilla2000Zer - what ways was it better for you and others not?
Godzilla2000Zer - 3/29/2024, 12:59 AM
@TheVisionary25 - The human cast was better than GvK mainly thanks to Dan Stevens and Kaylee Hottle they were great. As far aw the negatives go mostly the pacing issues in the last half of the movie they really rushed certain scenes that made me roll my eyes

I can’t believe people are still into these.
cyclopsprime - 3/28/2024, 9:27 PM
@TheNewYorker - and there's a problem with that?
EZBeast - 3/28/2024, 9:43 PM
@TheNewYorker - now you know how I feel about disney sequels/remakes, the mcu, and horror comedies.
TheNewYorker - 3/28/2024, 11:20 PM
@cyclopsprime - no lol
TheNewYorker - 3/28/2024, 11:20 PM
@EZBeast - i feel you *pause*

@TheNewYorker - Well King of Monsters was pretty rad and mostly solid story. The franchise and direction they are going has potential but its enjoy by many, myself included. Like The Meg, it's just a good Monster flick that doesn't require Oscar performances.

It's currently has 57% Rotten Percentage.
RolandD - 3/28/2024, 10:23 PM
King Kong 1933 RT 97%
Godzilla x Kong 57%
Sometimes you just can’t beat the classic.
marvel72 - 3/28/2024, 10:31 PM
@RolandD - King Kong 1933 movie is fantastic, if they released it on 4K blu-ray I would buy it.
SuperiorHeckler - 3/29/2024, 5:58 AM
@marvel72 - I have the original on Blu-ray and it's not all that impressive. It still comes across as "grainy" regardless of the clarity of the image itself. Would 4K make a difference for a nearly 100 year old film? I'm just not sure. 🤨
marvel72 - 3/29/2024, 9:42 AM
@SuperiorHeckler - I would think so if they clean the negative, if it exists and isn't damaged.
DocSpock - 3/28/2024, 10:28 PM

WTF does a suplex mean?

marvel72 - 3/28/2024, 10:29 PM
@DocSpock - Haven't you ever watched wrestling? It's a Wrestling move.
DocSpock - 3/28/2024, 10:55 PM
@marvel72 -

Huh. And, no. I would never watch wrestling.

marvel72 - 3/28/2024, 11:15 PM
@DocSpock -

DocSpock - 3/28/2024, 11:21 PM
@marvel72 -

If that is 2 consenting adults, I guess that's okay.

marvel72 - 3/29/2024, 9:42 AM
@DocSpock - hahaha
MyCoolYoung - 3/28/2024, 11:24 PM
I just want an excuse to go to the show and see some monsters fighting. I don’t really care about the other stuff
SuperiorHeckler - 3/29/2024, 5:54 AM
What Taika Waititi did to the THOR series, Wingard has done to the GODZILLA series. 🤡
dragon316 - 3/29/2024, 6:37 AM
Big deal 62% transformers sequel back to back made billion avatar series everyone knows how it did let fans decide whom like Godzilla not critics
marvel72 - 3/29/2024, 9:43 AM
@dragon316 - It's 56% now, not good.
SirDuckAlot - 3/29/2024, 9:12 AM
Very disappointing movie. Script is sloppy as hell and movie was rushing to end.
Tufasrox - 3/29/2024, 11:51 AM

marvel72 - 3/29/2024, 5:13 PM
54% I guess it's a good movie.
