I just checked out the Godzilla Vs. Kong trailer and it promises to deliver on an epic showdown between Godzilla, King of Monsters and Kong, King of the Apes aka The Eighth Wonder of the World. However, while it definitely hyped me up for the last installment in the Godzilla reboot franchise, I am left with a lot of questions by its end.

The problem with Hobbs and Shaw was the lack of substance that made everything seem inconsequential and unworthy of commitment to memory. The plot was unoriginal from start to finish. I dare you to find any element of this movie that has not been done before and done better. The script was corny and no amount of skill from Dwayne Johnson or Jason Statham could save it. Everything seemed forced, and as such, made it truly painful to watch. Hobbs and Shaw was a substandard addition to the franchise but its worst offense if probably ruining the characters of Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw for franchise fans. What a waste of time and talent. 

By its end, viewers will wonder what the hell just happened and shake their heads at the waste of potential that the collaboration among these fine actors presented. If you’re looking for an action movie that will challenge your intellect and your adrenalin, this is not the movie for you, but if you simply want to raise your blood pressure for no particular reason, feel free to check it out.  Don’t be fooled by the cool trailer. You’ve been warned.

All in all, bravo to John Wick 3: Parabellum. It was indeed an exciting, heart pounding, well written, and perfectly executed installment to the expanding franchise and I would definitely recommend it to any action afficionado that I know. A lot of hard work went into making this high quality franchise and its shows. Yes, its that good.
