GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS is a US action fantasy in which eco-terrorists release ancient monsters who battle for supremacy.

Threat and horror

Scenes of threat include people hanging on to tall structures, avoiding falling debris and fighting monsters, running from explosions, being swept away by hurricane winds, and avoiding fires and flooding water. While many of the sequences are prolonged, there is a focus on action and spectacle.

Violence

There are extended sequences of giant monsters biting and clawing each other, with occasional brief detail such as a monster's head being ripped off. Humans also battle the monsters, with fighter planes exploding as they are struck, and it is implied a man is eaten. There are also gunfights between human characters, although injury detail is minimal.

Language

There is infrequent strong language, a rude finger gesture, and milder terms used in the film.

Occasional sex references also occur. More information about the content of this film and all films with a BBFC age rating is available for parents on the main BBFC website and the free to download BBFC app.
