So, Godzilla is back, with so many Godzilla films you realize what more could they do? With the last Godzilla film which was show cased in 1998 with Matthew Broderick, Jean Reno and Maria Pitillo which was directed by Roland Emmerich, lacked the excitement and on the edge of your seat suspense. Over all that film was a let down, (shame really).
Now enough of the old, and into the new! As you may now I generally like to start a movie review from the first trailer, and boy was the trailer good, it teased the viewer, showing just enough for you to build the curiosity, to the point where you can't wait to see the film. One of the best trailers I have seen in a long time.
So, the film, was it any good, Yes, Yes it bloody was! Right from the beginning, from the opening credits you get enough information to build a strong background to the film, allowing just enough character development and but lacked that engaging factor. The films visual effects were as you can imagine, amazing, that if this really did happen, you could almost mistake it for a real like reconstruction video for a documentary.
You can tell from the beginning of the film that this was paying homage to the original Godzilla, less about Godzilla being the bad guy to more of a oooo what's that? It is hard to write about this film without revealing spoilers. The film consistently teases the audience over Godzilla and you are only shown pictures for the first half of the film. It is only past half way that Godzilla begins to tease the film goers with snip its of tail or fins, but it is about 3/4 of the film when you really get to the see the beast. It is great to see Godzilla's enemy have more of the spot light for the first 1/4 of the film, enable us to know a little more about the enemy (I am trying very hard not to tell you what it is), unlike Godzilla himself, were the actors were telling us, allowing us to build a picture in our mind.
There is one super surprise that movie goers would not have seen coming and you'll know what I mean if you have see the film. Godzilla uses X to take down his enemy, this particular skill or ability has only been shown in previous films before the 1998 film.
So should you go and see this film, in short, YES. It is really well put together, and one you most likely will buy on Blu-Ray.
