Saw it On Demand. Had some truly creepy moments, and a couple of "What the..." reveals. Proved you don't need lots of fancy special effects to make a truly scary movie. Just some clever camera angles and good editing. The ending was a bit disappointing, but somewhat expected. The acting was pretty good throughout. I wish Robert Picardo had had more than a cameo. Hopefully there will be a sequel so we can find out more about what is happening. Joanne Kelley and Robert need to go forward into the sequel.
A movie crafted for his fans, this Godzilla delivers over and over again. Has a plot and human characters that most Godzilla movies of the past would be envious of while slowly ramping up the excitement the way monster movies are SUPPOSED to do. Made me feel like a kid again when I used to fantasize about what it would be like to have Godzilla or King Kong rampaging through my neighborhood. This movie captures the heart pounding feeling that, as big as these creatures are, you're not sure where they are going to be next. But when we DO finally get to see him on screen, we can REALLY see him. No extreme close-up "shudder-cam" or whip-pans in these battle sequences, this director knows how to show an action sequence the way monster movies USED to be made (minus the guy in the suit). And to the naysayers that claim there's not enough Godzilla in this Godzilla movie, my son (12) said, "What are they talking about? You can see ALL of Godzilla in this movie. You see his face almost ALL the time, and his tail, and his feet, and ALL of him. There's LOTS of Godzilla to see." And HE'S the big G fan, compared to me. All the necessary details are there: signature roar - check, and done SO well, both visually and auditorily (all the sound in this movie is fantastic). Atomic breath - check, and I think displayed better than ever before on-screen, and featured in a critical moment.. Human/Godzilla interaction - check, subtle, but just enough to let us know the big guy knows we're around, and that he'd prefer to save us than eat us (he's a "monster on the edge" after all). If you are a fan, RUN, don't walk, to the theater. I plan on seeing this again at least once more on the big screen. If you just like a good blockbuster summer escape movie, this will do ya just fine, without wearing you out with drawn-out battle sequences or trendy camera affects.
Looks like some pretty cool battle sequences. Just hope it gives you breathing room and some character development so your brain can cool off between battles. Transformers tended to be too much of a good thing in the battle arena, especially the second one.
Then again, maybe their showing the best shots in the trailer.
Still, it looks like it'll be some good, mindless fun for me and my boys.
I usually like these kinds of movies. I'll probably rent it.
