I finally got around to seeing Godzilla. Overall the movie was decent. It had explosions, army men, giant monsters, and more explosions. In short, it was a Godzilla movie.
I kept away from trailers so when there was a monster other than Godzilla that appeared I was a little surprised. At first I thought the movie was going to be about everyone trying to kill Godzilla again but it turns out that Godzilla is actually here to help.
You may be thinking “what? why is Godzilla helping” which is what I thought. Godzilla is supposed to come out of the ocean, kill a lot of people, destroy some building, get nuked, and then go back into the ocean. That is not what happened.
Instead, Godzilla came out of the water, killed two giant other monsters, destroyed some buildings, and then went back into the water. A bit weird
I did like the human characters, although I don’t feel that the main guy had enough emotion, he was quite most of the time and was kind of bland. The mother was better, she had some more emotion, mainly crying, she could have done more. The kid I did not like, granted he was about 5 or 6 so he can’t do much anyway but still. Alright enough commas and bashing the poor humans.
There were plot holes as well. For example. If Godzilla had what amounts to a giant laser canon, why did he not use that first? Not really a plot hole but why was Godzilla so friendly to all the puny humans?
In the end, I thought that if you want to see Godzilla fighting giant monsters and destroying them as well as most of the city, then this is a good movie to watch. If a sound plot and good characters are what you are after, then probably skip this one.
