MOVIE REVIEW: Godzilla




For the longest time, Godzilla never had the best Hollywood rendition with the last being 1998 where the most prominent part of the movie I remember was the homeless guy who told his friend that he caught something while fishing and it turns out to be Godzilla which terrorize the city suddenly, all hell breaks loose.

Fast forward to 2014, Hollywood once again try to bring Godzilla back to life with the cast of Aaron Taylor Johnson as Ford Brody, Bryan Cranston as Joe Brody, Ken Watanabe as Dr Ishiro and Elizabeth Olsen as the wife of Ford Brody, Elle Brody under the direction of Gareth Edwards. They succeed of making so far the best rendition of Godzilla that I have watched so far (not that watched that many,yet)

THE GOOD

Embark on an emotional train ride featuring Joe Brody as his tries to prove his sanity to his son and also the government that whatever took down the nuclear reactor and his wife's life years back is not a seismic wave like what the public thinks. The story takes you on the eyes of Ford Brody which seems to have a really good experience with Godzilla. Godzilla is practically everywhere he goes. The CGI for both Godzilla and the M.U.T.O and the way it terrorize the city of concrete jungles brings a really traumatic feeling of WHAT IF SOMETHING THAT BIG HIT US (which sometimes I personally wish it happens). Godzilla also come with old skool moves that bring tears to my eyes. 

THE BAD

Not much have been told on how Godzilla came about, the brief intro was they are trying to kill the apex predator using nuclear testing and also we know they feed on nuclear radiation, thus Godzilla move closer to the core of the earth to feed on the radiation. Godzilla just seem to came out of the water, whack the hell out of the M.U.T.O and then goes to sleep, wake up and goes back into the water. Not much of history if you ask me. Explanation on the earlier corpse where they found the M.U.T.O was not explain too. 

CONCLUSION

Just sit back and enjoy the whole movie. I wouldn't recommend watching in 3D though as it seems like not much scene with 3D. I might be wrong seems like Amazing Spider-Man more like a nice movie to watch in 3D. At least you get to see three giants bash the hell of each other in an epic battle full of suspense and lip biting moments. Don't think so much and enjoy the movie plot. 

TL;DR: 3 big monsters, the destruction of New York city, people screaming, and havoc everywhere. Sit down and let the giants entertain you.  #Godzilla
