A Beautiful Bombastic Brawl

A reference-based review – Imagine if every Power Ranger and their Zords had been injected with high-grade steroids and placed into a dystopian near-future where Godzilla and his lizard/crocodile/hammerhead shark mates are busting through an Avengers/Doctor Who rift in space-time, forcing the construction of supersize robots piloted by teams of two humans each, defending Earth on the coasts and shorelines in action scenes that Transformers only dreams it could imitate.
