Wanted to add this in case anyone wants to discuss. I know a few people on the boards here were interested in it. I went to see it with my brother and I’m not the biggest Godzilla fan so I don’t know much about the easter eggs or how much they stuck to canon, but overall it was an above average film for me. This could be because I went in with little expectation because the 2014 movie was just… not good at all.
The human element was better this time but still too much focus. The monster scenes were better though they could have been focused on more. The ‘humans are destroying the world and need to be destroyed’ felt a little flat and cliche, but it was ok. Much better than 2014 but I though it was a decent movie. Anyway, have at the discussion as needed.
I don’t know if the city underwater was supposed to be Atlantis or something but that felt a little disjointed. Same with the whole vortex tunneling that allowed Godzilla to teleport. Like I said, not a big enough Godzilla fan to know if this was something established before, or just put in to explain why he can be somewhere else in the world really quickly? Also, did we just destroy his regeneration spot? The biggest complaint I had was that the main character was just ‘super good at everything’. He was smarter thant he scientists, more actiony than the military, and more strategic than the generals. Yawn.
