Godzilla Vs. Kong Fans Aren’t Happy About Millie Bobby Brown Being In The Movie

Godzilla vs. Kong

Millie Bobby Brown is one of the most popular and recognizable young stars on the planet, but she’s only featured in three movies. Two of those take place within the MonsterVerse and the other became one of Netflix’s most-watched original films ever, so it’s hardly a bad return all things considered, with her character Madison Russell bumped up to second billing among the human cast for Godzilla vs. Kong.

It’s smart for the studio to leverage her popularity by giving her a much bigger role in the story, as well as providing the connective tissue to King of the Monsters as the only returning face from the MonsterVerse, with the exception of a brief role for Kyle Chandler as her father. However, fans have been divided on the subplot that sees her teaming up with Brian Tyree Henry’s conspiracy theorist and Julian Dennison’s hanger-on.

We wrote in our own review that you could eliminate the trio from Godzilla vs. Kong entirely and it wouldn’t change a single thing, and as you can see from the reactions below, a lot of people agree, feeling that the road trip tangent between the mismatched running buddies is not really that important in the grand scheme of things.

Obviously, the humans are the least important part of Godzilla vs. Kong, and largely only exist to deliver exposition and move things on from one huge action sequence to the next, but Brown’s storyline is the most pointless by far. It feels like a half-baked way to get her into the movie that wasn’t developed beyond the first draft, and clearly a lot of people have been left scratching their heads at what impact Madison and her crew actually have on the proceedings.
