In this film, there are still unique and warm moments between Kong and the human, namely Jia. She is a deaf Iwi girl played by Kaylee Hottle, who comes from a deaf family. Meanwhile, around Godzilla, there is Madison, played by Millie Bobby Brown. Even though he had no connection with the monster, its presence was quite influential in recognizing its behavior. In the meantime, before we proceed, you can visit continuumthemovie.com to find more news about movies.
Like what happened in the classic Kong movie, when the creature is not fully a monster and has a human side when interacting with humans. On the other hand, Godzilla doesn’t have that warm moment. For him, every relationship between humans and Godzilla is “more implicit” so we rarely see the soft side of the lizard monster.
Besides Hottle and Brown, this film also stars other famous actors. Interestingly, there are three Marvel actors whose actions are also worth listening to, namely Julian Dennison as Josh, Madison’s friend who has computer hacking skills. He was in Deadpool 2 (2018) as Firefist.
Then, Rebecca Hall was Ilene Andrews, the woman who raised Jia and became the famous conqueror of Kong. She in Iron Man 3 (2013) is Maya Hansen, a scientist. Then, there is Brian Tyree Henry as Bernie, the Godzilla Podcast content creator whose presence is enough to lighten the mood. In the MCU, he played Jefferson Davis in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018).
There is also Demián Bichir who plays Walter Simmons. He became a villain whose death was tragic and is the second Conjuring actor to star in a MonsterVerse film, after Vera Farmiga in Godzilla’s King of Monsters (2019).
Regarding the relationship between monsters and humans, the director, Adam Wingard, seems to have a desire to take advantage of those moments. However, the question of how to combine human ensembles, aka human gangs, seems to have yet to be explored. Everything moves independently.
As expected, the titan fights are the best part of Godzilla vs. Kong. Moreover, the part when one giant monster hits another giant monster’s face is immersive. Unfortunately, these monster movies seem consistently lacking in moments with their human characters, and Godzilla vs. Kong fell victim to the same problem.
