Godzilla

Critics Consensus

With just enough human drama to anchor the sweeping spectacle of giant monsters smashing everything in sight, Gareth Edwards' Godzilla satisfyingly restores the franchise's fire-breathing glory.

    Not a perfect film. But Godzilla is great popcorn entertainment with great performances especially from Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe and more. As well as having a very well written story and script. Godzilla like I said might not be perfect but it still delivers what we want.

    Godzilla is a good watch apparently not because of the screenplay but because of its grand visual and audio effects, its action-packed scenes, and for being an overall enjoyable film.

    Really quite exciting, Godzilla is interestingly emotional and political in its approach to the generic monster movie genre. The once fresh-faced Aaron Taylor-Johnson is back and hardened to the ways of the world as he attempts to avoid the clutches of a terrifying beast that begins to rampage across the city as the creature attempts to breed. Humanity's last hope rests on Godzilla, who seems to do more damage than good, but nevertheless saves the day...more or less. What I didn't like about the film was that they decided to include the increasingly boring plot of a man attempting to reunite with his family through some kind of pandemic, similar to World War Z.

    A return to glory for "Godzilla" after recent stumbles but when Cranston's not on screen, the humans become a chore to listen to or care about. Could've benefitted by having more Godzilla on screen, but nevertheless not a complete waste of time
