Oh Godzilla.... why!! I wasn't going to write a review about Godzilla but my fellow movie blogger Whoa This is Heavy inspired me to do so. This movie... I had such high hopes from it from the trailer. I spent $15 to see this in IMAX. $15!! I was sooo bored. This movie spends way too much time on story. Last I checked this movie was Godzilla.. GODZILLA. We want to see monsters. Unfortunately this movie doesn't actually show monsters till the end of the film. I should've heeded some guy's warning who came flying out of the theater from the showing before mine telling us all it sucked so bad. He put his 3D glasses in the bin and left, before the film was finished. Mind you I didn't think it was so bad that I would skip the ending.
The CGI in the film is of course great. Godzilla looked scary and huge. He was pretty amazing. After reading other reviews.. the same thoughts came to my mind at the end of the film that I saw others have. I kept thinking about Pacific Rim. What an amazing monster movie that was. SOOOO great. So when this film was over I thought.. oh man Pacific Rim was way better then that. I wish I was watching Pacific Rim....Charlie Hunnam... focus. I just couldn't help compare the two.
Let's chat about the plot. Spoilers are coming if you care (which you shouldn't since you know.. boring). I was confused. Why did the military want to set off the nuke... then they did set it off... then all of a sudden go back and want to turn it off??? Like within 10 minutes of all those choices?? WHAT! Then... we watch all these trailers and the most interesting character Brian Cranston gets killed off so fast. I mean... eh?
Look... this movie is a rental and not even that. What for it to come on TBS or something next year.
I give this movie a C.
