I like Aaron Johnson but I don't think this "Godzilla" kicked some ass, just a simple action-scifi film.

The film has the capacity to create tension. Human characters were uneventful and action sequences felt muffled. Past Godzilla movies, even with bad special effects and all, we're worth watching than this since ot highlighted the bog fella, not the humans or even its competitors. It felt like watching a Jurassic Park 3 flick. Nothing memorable but not bad either.

With a good cast and a screenplay that, whilst hardly an exemplar of great writing, manages to be relatively believable in spite of the sheer absurdity of the premise, Godzilla succeeds at being an enjoyable blockbuster event. Particular praise must be handed to Bryan Cranston, who lends the film a raw emotional energy that it probably doesn't deserve. Alexandre Desplat also deserves credit for composing a refreshingly classical score. It's by no means at masterpiece, but I'd take it over Pacific Rim any day of the week.

Don't blink with your eyes ... You might miss it

"Nature has an order. A power to restore balance. I believe he is that power."

Now this was a movie I was looking forward for so long already.This should have been a mega-movie that would beat the 1998 version in every way with one's hand tied behind one's back.The 1998 "Godzilla" was for me a bit of a setback with a cardboard monster, terrible humorless acting and a "Jurassic Park" type of ending.With current technology,it should be possible to create a grandiose visual spectacle.But what a terrible disappointment it was eventually.

The first thing that flashed through my mind was that they could just as well have used the title. "A tiny bit of Godzilla".You'll see the monster of monsters approximately 15 minutes.I have read here and there so...

not impressed

I wasn't very impressed by this movie. iit started of well enough but then i got bored. Bryan cranston was good but i was very disappointed he wasn't in the whole movie. from then on it went downhill for me.
the guy who played his son was wooden as they come. his story was pretty poor to be honest predictable and been done before and you could of wrote it on a matchbox.
The monsters so to speak were more like tripods than actual creatures i wasn't impressed at all with them. also
no one seemed to be scared at all there was just no realisim. it was more of a visual movie of creatures stomping on buidings and fighing eachother more like transformers than godzilla.
The king kong remake was good and done well this one wasn't. it just lacked the actors the story and the realism. the effe...

March of the King of Monsters

Gareth Edwards does a good job reinterpreting the quintessential movie monster that is Godzilla. What I most appreciated about the movie was not the effects or the action or the spectacle but instead how Edwards directed it. There are several examples of solid visual storytelling that a lot directors do not have the patience for these days when it comes to blockbusters. The pacing and the editing is also commendable though I believe a lot of people are going to be disappointed by the slow build-up to Godzilla's first appearance. It is worth it though, trust me.
Once onscreen, he is a sight to behold. His design is cool and his special abilities are all available. Whenever Godzilla appears are easily the best parts of the movie. This makes sense considering the fact that it's a bloody Go...

I had no Idea that Trank was rumored for the other SW spin-off.  People can be as skeptical as they want about remakes or reboots, but in the case of the upcoming Star Wars movies they've got some great promise behind the camera.  Godzilla showed that Edwards could do more then small budget thrillers, and I expect that Trank has potential in that same area.

Edwards has talent - I saw that Josh Trank (Chronicle) was given the other Star Wars spin-off film. I'm hoping Edwards gets the rumored Boba Fett story - and who knows, he could do as well or better than the main film. Godzilla was pretty good - good enough that I would sit down for a couple more if they come along.

Godzilla director Gareth Edwards is doing pretty well for himself.  He is all set to direct two more Godzilla movies as well as the Star Wars spinoff that will come out the year after episode VII.  I'm a little apprehensive about Godzilla sequels because I didn't love the recent one, but I'll betcha anything Edwards will make a better Star Wars movie then Abrams.
