Do we NEED Humans in Godzilla vs Kong?

If anything, the only two characters who were useful in the overall story were Alexander Skargard and Rebecca Hall. These two characters actually gave helpful context to the story and had a reason to be there.

The little girl who had a connection with Kong was a nice touch and did a good job as well.Brian Henry was a solid comic relief, but everyone else just seems to be in the way or a distraction from the story.

Millie Bobby Brown’s character does the same thing she did in the last Godzilla movie — which is basically ignore her parents, get lost and put herself in a situation where she can get killed…but of course she doesn’t.

None of the characters are memorable and in every Godzilla movie they only seem to be there for marketing purposes and to just run around screaming at each other while chaos ensues.

Overall the movie looked great and all the fight scenes were super cool. The vfx in my opinion were top of the line. I honestly think they could’ve scrapped half the top of the line cast and got the same result.

A majority of people are watching the movie to see Godzilla and Kong tear each other apart throughout the city. Everytime it cuts to the human character storylines it comes off like a distraction and takes away from the movie. I’d be interested to know how many people in the audience actually even knew or remembered the character’s names once the credits begin rolling.

At any rate, this is a great popcorn movie where you can leave your brain at the door and just enjoy the action.
