Product Description

Product Description

Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Sally Hawkins star in this science fiction reimagining of the 1954 Japanese film about the destruction caused by a giant monster. When a devastating event is covered up as a natural disaster, nuclear physicist Joe Brody (Cranston) realises something much more sinister is to blame. Scientists Dr. Ichiro Serizawa (Watanabe) and Dr. Vivienne Graham (Hawkins) reveal that in 1954 a powerful monster was awakened and though 'nuclear tests' were carried out in the Pacific Ocean to destroy it, the creature has now returned. With the US Armed Forces, including Joe's son Navy Lieutenant Ford Brody (Taylor-Johnson), called into action, humanity fights for its survival. The cast also includes Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche and David Strathairn.

Synopsis

This spectacular adventure pits Godzilla, the world's most famous monster, against malevolent creatures that, bolstered by humanity's scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence. Cette aventure spectaculaire oppose Godzilla, le monstre le plus célèbre du monde, à des créatures malveillantes qui, ressuscitées par l'arrogance scientifique de l'humain, menacent notre survie.

This movie might as well have been called "Soldiers doing stuff in the dark" rather than "Godzilla". There just is not enough giant fire breathing lizard action, and far too much of soldiers fumbling around in caves, tunnels, or at night. It is a dark movie, not in tone (which is fairly bland, how they made a movie about giant monsters fighting bland is a mystery, but they managed it) but in actual light levels and that means you'll struggle to see any of the action. Speaking of the action, the director seems to delight in cutting away from it just as things get interesting. In one especially egregious case he cuts away from the monsters fighting to show a child watching the fight on television.

Also he kills Bryan Cranston's character off about fifteen minutes in.

Just isn't worth it.

Reading the reviews of this film have made me confused. It seems to be overrun by the misinformed and clueless masses astroturfing negative reviews because it's not the film they expected. It's a real shame because this film, at its core, is a perfect westernised version of Godzilla. It is strong enough to even stand on its own monstrous two feet as a fantastic film.

I think people expected Pacific Rim meets Godzilla. Why? It wasn't advertised to be. I hear complaints like "Not enough Godzilla screen time!" and "Slow and boring!" "More fights!" Had these requests been satisfied, the film would have been an utter disaster. All of the impact the title character has would be lost and wasted on non climactic and non exciting fight scenes, so that by the end you've had enough of huge fighting monsters thrown in you face. Godzilla actually managed to get the audience to cheer when he finally got his first hit in.

What do you really want? Dumb action? Watch Pacific Rim. Interesting and impactful storytelling? Watch Godzilla.

Those who have not seen the original 1954 Godzilla and have posted 1 star reviews preaching more action, need to think if their contribution is with anything at all.

This film was ok. A lot of it was in the dark so you couldn't really see very much! Plus Godzilla doesn't appear until an hour in and by that time we were starting to get restless and waiting for something to happen. Not as expected and wouldn't recommend.

Typical CGI fest with no real logical story or purpose. Good to watch if you enjoy watching rubbish films and are an avid trope spotter, plus we know monster movies aren't really meant to be taken seriously so no harm done. I'm sure they enjoyed making it just as much as I enjoyed watching it. 2* overall though over all, could have taken it a bit more seriously to make the story line at least credible.

When Gareth Edwards was announced as the director for the new American reboot of Godzilla, it was something of a mixed blessing. His low-budget debut Monsters had been impressively directed but lacked much in the way of narrative or genuinely interesting characters, ending up a good looking but uninvolving travelogue through a devastated Mexican landscape after giant creatures had laid it waste. Godzilla’s a minor improvement in the character stakes but thankfully a major one in terms of story and narrative drive, tweaking the mythology so that Gojira (and they do call him that until the very end of the film) is no longer a creation of the nuclear tests of the 50s but the intended target of them and even offering a few surprising developments (for once, the marketing did a brilliant job of hiding its two major plot twists, which left some feeling cheated but pleased me no end after years of trailers spilling the entire plot).

Constructed as much as a disaster movie as a monster mash, it’s probably more satisfying for those who grew up with the early entries in Toho’s series before things got goofy: this takes itself deadly seriously and manages to get away with it by thinking through not only what would happen if a seemingly indestructible creature awoke but also just why modern weapons would be useless against it. It’s true that there could be more Godzilla, but that’s clearly a conscious throwback to the early films where the big feller would barely be in a third of the film (indeed, his actual screentime is comparable to the 1954 film though at times Jaws seems more of a template).

If you like the classic Godzilla V's Monster of old movies - you'll love this.

Humanity is attacked by a giant monster that feeds on radiation. The only thing that can save mankind (as humans basically make everything worse in any attempt to fight back) is Godzilla! Another monster!

Watch a cast of Hollywood's whitest and greatest (with a few token minorities thrown in for good measure!) run around like headless chickens as monster battles monster.

Oh. Yeah, and San Francisco is pretty much buggered!

A brilliant re-imagining of the monster classic!

I thought this was pretty good but it will definitely divide opinion - it's clearly not the Godzilla-fest many people were hoping for as there is a lot of build-up and there are only very limited appearances of him for a fair while before the main action kicks in, so you might be disappointed if the trailer has led you to believe there is non-stop destruction. Instead the story builds for a while and it feels like a more grown up film compared to the 1998 version, with more in-depth story development and a narrative that takes center stage above the big guy himself for a lot of the film, but this does then make for more of an impact when Godzilla does make an appearance here and there before a brilliant finale. With that in mind, perhaps there isn't enough action, comedy or fun characters to keep children or younger viewers engaged the whole way through but the gaps are also filled in nicely with the development and journey of the MOTU creatures who have coaxed Godzilla into the story and inevitably end up battling with him, so there is more action and big-scope destruction than perhaps some reviews indicate, it's just that it doesn't all always involve Godzilla the whole way through. In that respect, this is far closer to the original films that Godzilla grew from but with an obvious and very nice update to the effects and believable nature of the monsters and mayhem/destruction.

Worth watching alone for the moment Godzilla pulls his special move out of the bag at the end of the final battle - a truly iconic piece of cinematography that was executed perfectly which I'd have given five stars for. Elsewhere, nobody is going to win any awards based on their performances but I think the cast do a good job of being just engaging enough to carry you through the story without distracting you from it too much. With slightly better characters to care about and a pinch more Godzilla screen-time it could have been an easy five stars.
