In this gripping tale, Russell Crowe portrays a retired homicide investigator grappling with amnesia, endeavoring to unravel a brutal crime etched in his past. Despite his memory lapses, he unearths a perilous labyrinth of concealed truths intertwined with his forgotten history during a decade-long investigation. Leading the charge, Crowe immerses himself in the role of a former detective undergoing an experimental Alzheimer’s treatment.

Driven by a sense of justice, he delves into an old case he can scarcely recall, spurred by the urgency to save a wrongfully accused man from execution. Yet, the reality he confronts diverges starkly from the truths he seeks, challenging his perceptions at every turn. True to form, Crowe’s commanding presence on screen transcends the narrative’s shortcomings, anchoring the film with his indelible performance.


Godzilla commands attention with every frame he graces, embodying the enigmatic rebel, while Kong emerges as the compassionate classic hero. The narrative leans towards Kong’s perspective, a natural choice given his more humanoid appearance. Both kaiju boast awe-inspiring visual effects, seamlessly blending spectacle with performance, a testament to the boundless possibilities of advancing technology. It foretells a future where human characters may take a backseat, enriching cinematic experiences.

The human ensemble, while not the focal point, adeptly contributes to the story’s tapestry, occasionally imbuing it with poignant moments. A more seasoned Kaylee Hottle showcases her burgeoning talent, while Dan Stevens injects a refreshing energy.

Audience gasps punctuate the film’s meticulously choreographed slow-motion action sequences during the climax. While the Hollow Earth segments dazzle with superb visual effects, some real-world scenes falter, lacking the vibrancy found elsewhere. Nevertheless, the monster-on-monster combat elicits laughter and cheers, underscoring the film’s ability to entertain.

Rating: 2.5/5
