This 28th entry in Toho Studio's series about the fire-breathing big fella is campily engaging for a while, but at two hours-plus you may come out feeling captivated dead.
This 50th anniversary grand finale to the long-running series is a rush of explosive excitement that pays homage to what came before but hypes it up into a kinetic brew that feels fresh and exciting %u2014 not an obituary-like coda but a glorious send-off
This final film offers a lot of sound and fury and weaves fourteen copyright Toho monsters into one plot, but the film offers nothing that is both new and of interest. The plot is a re-tread of that of DESTROY ALL MONSTERS.

... a blithely campy, altogether good-natured love letter to the classic Godzilla films of the 1960s and 1970s directed by... Japan's adolescent action stylist.
This movie isn't a funeral like the last series 'finale' Godzilla Vs. Destroyah, but a colossal birthday party. Everybody is invited...
