My Take – I have seen a couple of Godzilla movies (Yep, their are around 30 films!) including the idiotic 98 version, but by far Gareth Edwards has created best one yet! Anyone who saw Gareth’s earlier film ‘Monsters’ knows how impressive it was and how inspirational this person has become, going from a low-budget debut to a massive scale movie like this but what’s even more impressive is his admirable restraint in visual effects with extremely high-budget and resources.
Unlike the previous films, which were usually made on a wafer thin plot, this one has a more humane story, which at times makes it really believable in the current world, the film is dark, broody & clearly builds the whole film around one thing: Anticipation! Well having said that, yes the film does has its issues especially the actor named Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who looks like an overgrown Kick Ass, but instead just fails! & yes their are a couple of more issues, which I really cant indulge in without giving out the spoilers, so no ways! Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe & Elizabeth Olsen play their parts well.
Overall Godzilla is a truly powerful monster film. Its an awesome, satisfying film made by a “small” director with a great eye for detail & perspective & makes sure the film caters to people looking for an intriguing storyline or just a mind blowing blockbuster!
