If you want to read a complete plot synopsis for Godzilla: King of the Monsters with a boatload of hi-res screencaps, just click the "Show" button below. 100% spoilers here for those interested.

Spoiler Below:
*Flashback: San Francisco, 2014*

Image

The movie opens with a POV of Emma Russell (Vera Farmiga) and Mark Russell (Kyle Chandler) searching for their son during the San Francisco battle from the previous movie. We see Godzilla and they stare at him.

We then cut to the present with Emma Russell and daughter Madison Russell. It is established that Emma and Mark have both separated since their son was lost.

Emma Russell and Madison Russell, both Monarch scientists, investigate an enormous egg inside a temple in China.

Image

Image

It soon hatches, giving birth to a larva Mothra.

Image

Mothra freaks out due to confusion and webs a couple of soldiers to the temple wall.

Emma Russell decides to use a special device that she and her ex-husband invented known as the Orca to calm the baby Mothra by emitting frequencies that only Titans can respond to. Mothra becomes docile, and we get the scene in the trailer where Madison reaches out to touch her.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Eco-terrorists suddenly show up in jets and begin bombing the area.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Mothra manages to escape during the confusion and hides underneath a waterfall, and the terrorists kidnap both Emma and Madison.

We see Dr. Serizawa (Ken Watanabe), Dr. Vivienne Graham (Sally Hawkins), and Sam Coleman (Thomas Middleditch) being questioned at a Senate hearing about whether the military should take over operations at Monarch.

Image

Image

Image

We are treated to a comical scene involving footage of the MUTO nuzzle scene from the previous film when suddenly Monarch gets the message of the kidnapping and abruptly leave…

Monarch reaches out to Mark Russell (who is now photographing wolves) because he can track the frequencies the eco-terrorists leave behind when using the Orca. He doesn’t fully warm up to the organization due to their involvement with Godzilla and the Titans, as he blames Godzilla for his son's death.

Monarch takes Mark Russell to a secret underwater base called "Castle Bravo" in Bermuda. It’s established Monarch has many facilities all around the world for different Titans still in hibernation. The Bermuda camp is for tracking Godzilla, and it’s stated Monarch has been tracking him since he left San Francisco Bay five years ago.

Godzilla approaches the base, and Monarch throws up their defenses and weapons ready to shoot at Godzilla before Mark Russell tells them not to antagonize him and to drop their shields to show they mean no harm.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Monarch realizes Godzilla is heading to Antarctica and soon discovers the terrorists are heading to Antarctica as well to free a creature simply called Monster Zero at this point.

Image

Their leader is a mysterious man named Jonah Alan (Charles Dance) an Ex-British Special Forces who grew to resent humanity after all the wars and environmental destruction its caused.

Image

Image

The terrorists lay an ambush for Monarch and kill most of the G-Team.

Image

Mark Russell sneaks his way into the containment facility and tries to free his ex-wife and daughter, only to find Emma Russell as she detonates the ice herself and frees the monster.

Image

Image

Image

Jonah, Emma, and Madison leave for their chopper. Once they’re at a safe distance in the sky, Emma activates the Orca and awakens Monster Zero.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The monster rampages for a bit until Godzilla emerges from the ocean and engages him.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

It's a pretty even battle at the start, but Monster Zero gains the upper hand and knocks Godzilla into the ocean.

Image

Monster Zero continues his rampage, even swooping down and eating Dr. Graham (in a scene reminiscent of the Skullcrawler/Bill Randa scene from Kong: Skull Island) before disappearing in a freak tropical storm.

After regrouping, Monarch is obviously bewildered by Emma's actions, and Monster Zero's sudden disappearance. Monarch realizes the next target is Mexico and ready themselves to head there when suddenly Emma Russell directly contacts them from Mexico herself, revealing she was working for the terrorist group the entire time. Cue her speech from the trailer.

Image

Image

Image

With the freak tropical storm heading for Mexico, Monarch decides to evacuate the city, but before the evacuation is complete, Jonah orders Emma to use the Orca and wake up a new Titan called Rodan.

Rodan explodes from his containment chamber causing the volcano to erupt and begins laying waste to the city and people below.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

It is here that Madison starts to reflect on the carnage going on around her and begins to doubt her mom’s intentions, but pushes her doubt in the back of her mind, hoping everything will be fine.

The storm begins to swamp over Mexico and Monarch realizes that Monster Zero wasn’t lost in the storm, but is causing the storm.

In a last ditch effort to save what's left of the populace, Monarch plans to lead Rodan away from the city with jets and engages him in a dogfight over the ocean.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Using a new Monarch helicarrier, Monarch leads Rodan into Monster Zero’s storm with hopes both Titans will kill each other.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The two have a very short, unfocused-on battle, ending with Monster Zero easily beating him.

Monster Zero then focuses his attention toward our main cast, charging up to kill them.

Image

Godzilla suddenly emerges from the ocean just in the nick of time and engages Monster Zero in another battle, saving Monarch.

Image

The dragon manages to gain the upper hand again, constricting Godzilla with his body and necks as they fight in the ocean, Ghidorah even lifts Godzilla up high above the stratosphere and drops Godzilla back to Earth.

Image

Admiral William Stenz (David Strathairn) makes a guest appearance via monitor and claims things are getting out of hand, issuing the use of a new, experimental anti-Titan missile known as the De-Oxygenator. Dr. Serizawa pleads with him against the idea and says that humanity must “trust in Gojira,” but much like the first film, he’s overruled.

Godzilla, while still in the clutches of Monster Zero, manages to tear off one of the heads, but the military already fired the De-Oxygenator at the two anyway. When hit, Godzilla seemingly dies and sinks into the ocean, hundreds of fish float to the top of the water too in a very eerie scene, with Monster Zero surviving the missile unscathed.

Image

Image

Monster Zero flies over Rodan’s volcano, perches atop it, and begins drawing energy through its storm in a really amazing scene. It is here that Monster Zero completely regenerates his missing head. Rodan flies over to him and bows to his new king, becoming submissive.

Monster Zero then lets loose a bone-chilling roar and suddenly, all across the world, Titans everywhere begin awakening from their hibernation...

Image

Image

One in Germany, one from Mt. Fuji, and many, many others...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Cue Charles Dance’s line, “Long live the king.”

Image

Image

Monarch realizes through Dr. Chen’s reading of mythological texts that Monster Zero (now named Ghidorah) was a “demon who fell from the sky,” alluding to a possible alien origin. It is also revealed that our Godzilla and Ghidorah have history and fought in the past.

Image

Shocked by Godzilla's death and the mayhem caused by the awakened Titans, Madison is fully convinced her mom and the terrorist organization are wrong.

Image

Image

With Godzilla seemingly dead and nothing standing in their way, Rodan, Ghidorah, and the rest of the Titans go on a rampage across the world, destroying various cities and leaving little in their path. Ghidorah even begins roosting in Washington, D.C.

Image

Image

Mothra emerges from her cocoon underneath the waterfall.

Image

Image

Mothra flies over the Castle Bravo facility in the ocean.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Mothra leads Monarch to Godzilla, who is revealed to still be alive, but just barely.

It is stated that Godzilla and Mothra’s species had regularly allied themselves together in ancient times and share a special connection to one another.

Mark Russell begins to develop a growing affinity for Godzilla and happily joins Monarch aboard a submarine to try and revive him. Monarch locates his resting place inside an ancient underwater city, feeding off radiation from the sea floor to stay alive.

Image

Image

Image

Image

In order to revive Godzilla fast, Monarch decides to hit him with a nuke, but due to technical difficulties, the nuke won’t launch, meaning someone must take it to Godzilla and manually detonate it. During a very emotional scene, Dr. Serizawa accepts that it HAS to be done and volunteers himself.

He dives down and drags the nuke up a flight of ancient steps and sets the nuke down in front of an injured Godzilla.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Dr. Serizawa sets the timer and places his hand on Godzilla’s snout, takes a deep breath and says “Goodbye, old friend” in Japanese, then the nuke explodes...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

A supercharged Godzilla rises out of the water, bigger and stronger than ever, even sporting more traditional dorsal plates reminiscent to Godzilla's 1954 dorsal fins. The Godzilla March plays with Godzilla's name edited in as chants. Godzilla spots the Monarch team and looks Mark Russell in the eye, and they share a moment.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Godzilla is rejuvenated and eager to take on Ghidorah one last time… he then releases an ultra powerful blast of atomic breath into the sky, showing off his newfound power.

Image

Image

Image

Turns out the eco-terrorists’ bunker was in Boston the entire time. Emma finally realizes King Ghidorah will destroy the Earth far worse than humans could ever do, but Jonah doesn’t care and ignores her pleas to turn back.

Madison overhears this and decides to take matters into her own hands, stealing the Orca and using it to lure Ghidorah to Boston so the other Titans can destroy him.

Image

Image

Image

King Ghidorah gets to Boston first and the destruction begins, chasing Madison through Fenway Park trying to get the Orca.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Godzilla shows up with an entire entourage of jets to stop him.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Mothra shows up too and she and Godzilla go after Ghidorah together.

Image

Rodan suddenly shows up too, intercepting Mothra, leading to a solo battle against him and Mothra while Godzilla and Ghidorah fight each other.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Rodan comes off as the stronger of the two, he goes in for the kill, talons ready to rip Mothra apart until she reveals a hidden stinger, stabbing Rodan through the chest and taking him out of the battle.

Image

Monarch realizes that Godzilla is starting to expend too much energy and will go thermonuclear and explode, so everyone needs to get the hell out of dodge quick!

Image

Even with Godzilla’s newly acquired atomic power-up, he’s still incapable of defeating Ghidorah, even though they're almost on equal grounds now. Ghidorah chomps down on some power lines and begins absorbing electrical energy, super-charging himself and easily beats Godzilla down again.

Image

Image

Mothra flies in before Ghidorah can deliver the killing blow, landing on Godzilla's downed body to protect him. She ultimately ends up sacrificing herself when Ghidorah strikes her down with his lightning as she flies at him.

Image

Image

Image

Mothra’s body burns up, and her ashes rain over Godzilla's body, transferring her energy to him, increasing his power even moreso, now sporting a burning red “ember-like” aura around him.

The Russell family is brought together again.

Image

Emma makes a noble sacrifice to use the Orca and drive Ghidorah’s attention towards her so her family and the Monarch team can escape via chopper.

Image

Image

Image

During a car chase, Ghidorah strikes her car with lightning and launches her from her vehicle. Dying and laying on the road, her last words are “Long live the king.”

Image

Godzilla's back up and ready to finish it, unleashing a newly gained power, he disperses his swelling energy by burning everything around him.

Image

Image

Image

Godzilla bombards Ghidorah with atomic pulse stomps that scorch and melt Ghidorah away in fiery explosions. The killing blow is an implied stomp delivered to his chest.

Everything is in rubble, it seems Ghidorah is still alive when we see his head emerge from the smoke and debris, but it’s just a psych out, revealing that Godzilla has the severed neck dangling from his mouth. Godzilla fires his atomic breath through its throat and out its mouth, engulfing it in flames. Godzilla then chews up the scorched chunks of fried meat and swallows it.

The movie concludes with an injured Rodan approaching Godzilla as all the other Titans finally converge on Boston and begin to surround Godzilla too.

Instead of attacking, Rodan chooses to bow to him, followed by the rest of the Titans. The movie ends with Godzilla roaring into the sky with all of the Titans bowed down in front of him. Godzilla has now been crowned the King of the Monsters.


*Roll Credits*


We see news clippings over the credits claiming Godzilla to be the protector of humanity, while others state where the other awakened Titans are now residing, such as Rodan resting in Fiji and a Titan called the Scylla residing in a lake.

The post-credit scene consists of Jonah meeting up with a mysterious fisherman who sells him the decapitated head of Ghidorah that Godzilla severed in Mexico…

I just got back from seeing this (2D IMAX). If someone watched Godzilla 2014 and KotM back-to-back, I think they'd get whiplash from how different the designing principle of the two movies is, despite the continuity of one picking up directly from the end of the other. G2014's concept: what might happen if giant monsters appeared in the real world. KotM's concept: if it looks cool, screw logic and just do it.

Spoiler Below:
Rodan doing a barrel roll to swipe a squadron of fighters out of the air was a particular highlight in that regard. As was Ghidorah chomping down on a power station to supercharge his electric attacks. Speaking of Ghidorah, I like that they shamelessly have the guts to just flat-out say he's an alien, and throw in regenerating heads to highlight the point. Oh, and who cares how all those other kaiju got to Boston at the same time, when it results in that glorious, "Bow down, bitches" scene at the end.


What this approach also gives us is a movie that revels in the history of the series in a way I never thought I'd see in a Hollywood adaptation.

Spoiler Below:
Oxygen destroyer? Check. Referring to Ghidorah as Monster Zero? Check. Mu continent/Atlantis? Check, and I'm only surprised that Robert Dunham wasn't down there. Burning Godzilla?! Hell yes, and the way he melts metal just by standing near it is glorious. Ifukube themes? They're there, but good luck making them out over the movie's typical modern action sound mix that prioritises sound effects and shouting.


KotM is also the opposite of G2014 in structure. The Spielberg-style slow burn is replaced with a more typical modern blockbuster pacing. The cold open shows that we won't have to wait to see Godzilla, kaiju appear in practically every alternating scene throughout, and you only have to wait half an hour for the first kaiju fight. I'm actually not sure if Godzilla himself has more screen time in this one than he did in 2014, but his appearances are more evenly spread out, so he feels more present.

The movie prioritises action and fast pacing over character drama, which was clearly intentional and is fine. The human side of the story is just about good enough to keep the movie rolling along, though all the characters are rather thinly drawn. The Charles Dance character feels especially insubstantial, and it's never really clear who he is or what motivates him. And the less said about the few attempts at humour the better; even the actors seemed to be inwardly cringing at those lines.

Spoiler Below:
The direction they ultimately take Serizawa an interesting inversion of the 1954 movie. In that one, he gave up his life to kill a malevolent Godzilla. In KotM he sacrifices himself to revive a benevolent Godzilla.


Honestly, I'm not sure what I think of this movie after the first viewing. I enjoyed it, and the Toho-esque way it's not afraid to go bonkers with its kaiju action is great fun, but I was disappointed by the limited amount of city destruction (something I always look forward to, but maybe that's just me), and the kaiju scenes are all hidden in darkness and bad weather again. In terms of the US Godzilla movies, it's easily the most flat-out entertaining on the action front. It's a movie I could see sitting alongside Godzilla X Mechagodzilla as one of my go-to kaiju movies for when I want something that zips through its runtime without ever getting boring. It lacks the thematic ambition of G2014, but that's not really a failure, because that's not what KotM is trying to be. It aims to be a fast-paced, action-packed thrill ride, and by that measure it succeeds, even if it doesn't manage to be the king of the kaiju movies.

Very fair assessment.

Especially with regards to Charles Dance.
Spoiler Below:
That he might return in GvK is the only thing that gives me SOME slight hope that his character won't turn out to be totally worthless. But he's utterly wasted in THIS movie.

Postby mrbluehair » Thu May 30, 2019 4:03 am

I'm just happy we get any new Godzilla. I expected an A-B plot, nothing fancy, just bridges to monster fights. There is only 1 critic that matters to me...and it's me.

We walk an interesting line with these movies, too deep, too much people stuff, not enough monster fights, not deep enough, the list goes on. Not sure I will be able to carve out time to see it tomorrow....may have to wait till Monday. No matter, it will be good for me to take my kids out and chew some popcorn and share more monster battles.

As for the atmosphere (rain, snow, dust) it's also tricky....on one hand this movie does espouse elemental nature of the creatures, on the other hand it causes irritation to some viewers. My take is this: If they showed the battles without any atmosphere it would look really odd (I confess I'd like a full daylight battle but even in TOHO films they look smaller than night time) In reality if these massive creatures did battle, the amount of dust and debris would obscure much of the battle. Think and I say this with respect, the Twin Towers. The amount of lingering dust was incredible. More relevant the proof of concept for 2014, we see the silhouette of Godzilla through the dust.

I also don't get too deep into movies. If it's fun, I like them. I'm a complex person living a stressful life so when I want to have popcorn and a soda, i want the movie to help me forget all the bullshit I have to deal with.

The only time I really didn't enjoy a movie and fell asleep was Alice in Wonderland....that was a good nap right there.

Saw this a second time yesterday, such a fun ride. I'll be seeing it in IMAX tomorrow, though I'm sure after work today I'll sneak in another regular screening.

Seriously has my favorite ending of the entire series... the monsters bowing, the revamped BOC song, and the news headlines saying how the Titans are restoring nature wherever they go... it gave me the feels.

It kind of reminded me of the "teases" we got of Varan, Baragon, & Kumounga in DESTROY ALL MONSTERS.

Godzilla 2014, Shin Godzilla, Pacific Rim, and Kong: Skull Island were the Godzilla films I was waiting for! I mean, seeing Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah on the big screen was delightful, but those other films delivered the genre in movies where I thought the entire package was strong.

I already have the Godzilla movies I've been waiting for. They were made in 1954, 1964 and 1989.

So, maybe I wasn't ever "waiting" for them, but for me, nothing can ever reasonably top them, and at this point in the franchise (hell, in a post-DAM world, quite honestly) everything the franchise ever produces is just gravy....and that's from someone who hates Shin Godzilla so much I find parts of it actively revolting, and thinks the anime trilogy is three of the worst THINGS I've ever watched...oh well though...35 movies (an argument could be made for 40 if you consider all the different American versions of 54, GRA, KKvG, G85 and G2K). The world and the franchise move on.

Every fan is different. Admittedly it would be better if he said *film he was waiting for*. I'll take honestly *almost* anything with Godzilla. Being different is ok, but being too silly (like preschool silly), or out in left field like the Netflix series is where I lose interest. I guess if I were going to use the term *waiting for* which I really am not waiting for anything. it would be an honest-to-goodness remake of Destroy All Monsters. But KotM was (more or less) a re imagining of GTTHM with some obvious tweaks. It was great, I loved it.
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.
