THE RETURN OF GODZILLA

THE RETURN OF GODZILLA

GODZILLA

First let’s put this movie in order, I’m in my 40’s so I’m a big fan of the old Godzilla movies the traditional Godzilla films and I’ll stop there because if you have seen or are a fan of the old traditional Godzilla or monster movies of the 50’s-early 70’s then you get what I mean and saying more might spoil the movie for you.

As we see monster movies today the twentyteen’s bring us monsters that are demons, ghost, witches just plain devilish stuff that shocks you into fear. The old monster movies of Godzilla sci fi had their own style

and a viewer of today sometimes just doesn’t get that but that’s progression and technology of the movies and it takes a good director and producer to make that style work in now day’s movies. This latest Godzilla 2014 directed by Gareth Edwards achieves this and he does it in A+ fashion.

Over the last 15 years there has been some attempts to return Godzilla to the big screen but it’s failed every time sorry Ferris Bueller and Apu

your 1998 Godzilla is cow dung compared to this newest fire breathing lizard that is awesomer that awesome.

 

If you seen the commercials of the latest Godzilla 2014 film you don’t see the real movie you only get a glimpse of what will come.

Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad and Malcolm in the middlegodzilla3

is not the star of the movie but his character packs a big punch and in the whole scheme of things it was a brilliant move to have Cranston cast for this movie, this is definitely one of those films where the movie trailer and the commercials do not come close to what you will see in the theater.

 

What is great about this movie is not only is it a traditional Godzilla film but its pro family, pro American military family and really promotes sacrifice for the greater good by our proud men and women of the armed forces. You are proud we have such fine men and women that are willing to defend its people even if it means dying to do so and the destruction of San Francisco is great, I would have rather seen Oakland destroyed but hey when you’re making landmarks so other states and countries can get the visual I’ll give it a pass.

 

Godzilla 2014 is a great movie it’s rated PG 13 but could have been rated PG or PG 6. I don’t remember any foul words no sexual innuendos. People do die but what do you expect when monsters are destroying things and you have to stop them, guns and bombs ablazing people do get smashed and die so if you’re trying to shield your child from violence then don’t see the move. If you have a normal kid that loves monsters then you will love this movie. Godzilla is a great father and son movie and if your girls like giant lizards too even better take the whole family you will love it.

 

I’ll give you one spoiler hint, when Godzilla is tired he takes naps. You’ll understand when you see the movie. Rating this movie I give it 4.75 stars out of 5 it’s that good, if you want and intellectual thinking monster movie stay home, if you want an awesome fun movie that brings back the old style Godzilla then see this movie you will love it.
