Edwards’s tendency to incrementally reveal his creatures through thoughtful use of scale, which the director experimented with in his promising debut, Monsters, comes off fully polished here, but not without some wondrous moments of near-poetic visuals, such as a late shot where Godzilla’s tail stirs and writhes in and out of a cloud of black smoke.

Edwards is getting lots of credit for building Godzilla slowly, and it’s true the climax gets deferred a couple of times – but that doesn’t really mean much, both because you know it’s just a matter of time after the first glimpse of MUTO and (more importantly) because there’s not much to do while you’re waiting.

[Edwards] gets several impressive effects by showing the monsters not head-on, but through inopportune, obstructed, or mediated POVs: through the perspective of omnipresent monitors, looking up from an awed human’s-eye-view… Unfortunately, Edwards is also obliged to periodically veer away from the destruction to remind us of the existence of the movie’s ostensible protagonists…

¿Qué dicen los demás?

  • chanandre's rating of the film Godzilla

    Best monster movie I've seen since Joon Ho's The Host; stand alone moments: Binoche saying goodbye to Cranston; Godzilla 'puking' blueish fire into MUTO's mouth (as if THE the kiss of death); MUTOs sharing a warhead as a token of love; the marines 'chuting down with the red "we're here" smoke scored by Ligeti's Requiem and the final glances exchanged between Ford & Godzilla. Sound design, editing & creatures were <3

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Godzilla

    Truly something of an outlier in just how damn patient it's willing to be, Gareth Edwards taking the time to build a sense of wonder and suspense, genuinely earning the adjective "Spielbergian" in the process. The street-level camera angles and frequent cut-aways emphasize how utterly insignificant humanity is in this ageless battle—little more than ants at the feet of prehistoric gods in an ash-strewn hellscape.

  • Michael H. CLAES's rating of the film Godzilla

    200 stuntmen & 300 graphic artists in the credits & for the rest there isn't much to remember, maybe the classic ending shot of the Big Beast returning to the San Francisco Bay once its mission accomplished. == 200 cascadeurs & 300 artistes graphiques au générique, quant au reste peu à retenir, sinon le classique plan final de la Bébête qui s'en retourne dans la Baie de San Francisco, une fois sa mission accomplie.

  • Mugino's rating of the film Godzilla

    A pointless reboot by someone who either didn't see or didn't get the point of the original. And what's the use of an A-list cast when they're so underutilized? Wouldn't have bothered if I wasn't among a captive audience on an 8-hour flight.

  • Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Godzilla

    Despite a strong opening that starts to build a durable emotional center based around loss and survivor guilt in its first portion, Godzilla loses its ability to emote in its well-photographed, but non-suspenseful, nor engaging action scenes that take up the entirety of the final 2/3 of the picture, obviously meant to appeal to American-mainstream, fanboy audiences. Therefore, it becomes soulless in the process.

  • Palmat's rating of the film Godzilla

    Hugely disappointing. While the visuals and effects are really good the script is very boring which leaves a fine acting ensamble little to do but run and stare with their mouths open. This could have been everything that Pacific Rim wasn't but it failed spectacularly.

  • J. O.'s rating of the film Godzilla

    It's saving grace was how much fun the kaiju battles were at times, and the exceptional CGI. Otherwise it was very poorly written, over-acted, and annoyingly edited - with some sparse moments of monsters (rather than the monster-centric blockbuster we were all hoping for). Edwards shit the bed on this mess, though nobody seems to care, with the biggest eye roll being Godzilla making eye contact with the human. Gag.

  • Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Godzilla

    A run-of-the-mill blockbuster tells us it wants to be something more. To that intent it gives the audiences Godzilla as a hero. And it fails because everything that led up to the "we shouldn't mess with nature ways" point was glamorized, doing exactly the same as every other forgettable big budget entertainment: downplaying the human drama to clichés instead of trying to establish a meaningful connection.
