#Godzilla: my review of @GodzillaMovie, by @WBPictures & @Legendary http://wp.me/p3UMCT-yB

I have never been ‘excited’ about monster movies like I am about superhero movies, but the trailers for this film had me excited about the human element. I was expecting a hero to root for, and the small glimpses of the monster were teasing.

Great job marketers, you got me.

I have never been ‘excited’ about monster movies like I am about superhero movies, but the trailers for this film had me excited about the human element. I was expecting a hero to root for, and the small glimpses of the monster were teasing.

Great job marketers, you got me.

The Good

  • Amazing exposition, I was very engrossed in the ‘mysterious happenings.’
  • Creature design, really great work on keeping it classic but realistic and relatable. Well done.
  • The effects, plenty of wow moments in term of effects.
  • Mary-clutch-your-pearls moments, at one time during the film I screamed, “JESUS!” as an expletive to the amusement of those around me.

The Bad

  • The hero, he was so unrelatable, half-way through the film I just didn’t care anymore. He was fairly flat, really badly written. Shame, the actor had a jawbone so chiseled it could cut rock.
  • The scare factor, they pulled some cheap tight-camera-leap-out-at-you tricks, which essentially pissed me off.
  • The pacing, the final battle took so long, I was ready to just leave. That overshadowed my entire experience of the film.

RATING: 3.5/5

While being a technological genius with a clever overall plot, the flat hero and the awful pacing really drag down the film. If effects are a big thing, go see it in a premium format. Otherwise, go see it on a second-run screen.
