During the attack on Monster Island (after the Killaks had taken over), I found myself saying, "Could you please get to the good stuff already?" Then when the military was attacking Godzilla and Anguirus, I was saying the same thing.
Nowadays, I think Destroy All Monsters is very repetitive and becomes eye-rolling at a couple points. Some scenes serve no purpose other than to have an action scene, like the attack on Tokyo, and others just repeat what other scenes have already done, like the whole Fire Dragon thing at the end of the film. To be fair, the acting is decent and I enjoy most of the characters, but that's all that needs to be said about that. And, obviously, the fight against King Ghidorah is still amazing to watch. The problem, though, is that you have to sit through a lot of the same scenes to get to that moment of awesomeness. The question I was asking myself at the end was, "Was the monster fight worth the wait?"
So the monsters destroying the city wasn't enjoyable?
There's only so much you can do with monsters destroying a city. By the time you get to the attack on Tokyo, there's already been the scenes of monsters destroying major cities. By the time they get to the attack on Tokyo, it's become stale. They're shot fine and look great, but I'm just not that interested in it by the time we get to the attack on Tokyo.
