GODZILLA (Theatrical Release USA 2014)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì 

Godzilla seems like a reboot of the 1998, Matthew Broderick and Jean Reno, version of the Godzilla story. It is the second Godzilla film produced in the United States. This film replaces the original cast with Brian Cranston, Ken Watanabe, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elisabeth Olsen, Sally Hawkins, and David Strathairn. The movie works at the okay to suitable level and has suitable special effects that show Godzilla fighting a new antagonist, the MUTO (Massive Unidenified Terrestrial Organism). This movie is better in some ways and not so good in other ways from the 1998 Godzilla film and has terrific animation of the monsters.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. This movie is the first film in the new Godzilla film series. The film does not inspire a watch for the sequel; however, one may be curious to see if there is an improvement in the storyline for the next movie. The fourth film in this new series may be in the works for a 2024 release.
