I was gonna do my “Godzilla” review in a videoblog but I decided not to ’cause I don’t feel like going through all that work tonight. So I’ll just write the review here instead. I’ve just seen the new “Godzilla” today.
Plot/synopsis: The world’s most famous monster is pitted against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
This film so far is getting mixed reviews by critics and movie fans but I can’t understand why. I thought the film was pretty mind blowing. I FUCKING LOVED IT!!!!! Finally, we have a Godzilla movie that is perfect. It’s the true Godzilla movie that die-hard fans can drool over. I have been a huge Godzilla fan for years so I know this is the perfect Godzilla film. This film totally felt like the old Japanese films from the 50’s but this new film has a more modern feel to it. Godzilla have been in the film franchise for years. I remember the first Godzilla movie was made in 1954 which is the Japanese film and there have been over 20 more Japanese Godzilla films. There are now 4 American Godzilla films. I know about the 1985 film and I also know the 1994 version. The 94′ version wasn’t actually all that bad but back to the new film…
… this film was entertaining as hell all the way through. This is the kind of movie that will make you want to jump up and cheer and smile… kind of like when you’re watching “Star Wars” or something. Yes, you will see plenty of giant monsters fighting, building smashing, and city wrecking just like all the earlier Godzilla flicks. This is surprisingly a more realistic Godzilla flick too and Godzilla had some personality in this movie. Most CGI in popcorn movies are pretty much garbage but they did a great job with the CGI in this film. All of it almost seemed pretty real.
The script was good and the acting wasn’t bad either; of course, Bryan Cranston, the “Breaking Bad” star kills it like always.
The new “Godzilla” was very exciting. Now that this is a very successful movie… I can see this new “Godzilla” re-boot being made into a series of sequels with Godzilla fighting different monsters each film just like the early Japan movies. Will Mothra and Mechagodzilla be coming? It also wouldn’t surprise me if Hollywood is planning an American version of “King Kong vs. Godzilla” ’cause that have never been done here before.
The action in the new “Godzilla” was a thrill ride. I think I’m definitely gonna get this film on BluRay when it comes out for sure.
Go check out the new “Godzilla”, you won’t be disappointed.
Two thumbs up.
