The way Kong kills Gorosaurus, by splitting his jaws apart, is the same way the original Kong kills the tyrannosaurus in the original King Kong (1933). See more »

Lieutenant Susan Watson:
[talking to another crew member]
Boy, with a good looking nurse like that on board, I wouldn't mind running a fever.
Lieutenant Susan Watson:
Just remember, sailor. I've got lots of castor oil in sick bay. And you too.

A very pleasing movie, that has a total of 4 kaiju's (giant Monsters) in it. They are King Kong, Mechani Kong, a Giant Sea Snake, and Gorosaurus (from Destroy All Monsters fam). This movie is filled with a lot of action, and goes at a fast pace. The Kajiu fights are great and numerous. And Dr. Huu makes a very good villain, although he is a little trigger happy (he kills every one in the movie with at least three shots from his gun). Over all a very good kajiu movie.
