REVIEW: GODZILLA

REVIEW: GODZILLA

My anticipation for Gareth Edwards' take on the big fella was at an all time high, so does it deliver or did it end up like the 1998 travesty? Hit the jump and check out my review of Godzilla to find out!



With the epic trailers and TV spots giving us a tease at the King of Monsters, I found myself intrigued. And ultimately prepared to see this film unfold, which starts off introducing strong characters in Joe Brody, Ford and Elle portrayed by Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen. Thankfully the human element works very well, incorporating dramatic tension having a good balance. Although it may drag on quite a bit, I had no problem with it.

Maintaining that balance throughout, had me interested with the story. Joe being obsessed about figuring out what's causing these so called disturbances among them. Of course the main thing is to keep tight and wait to see the monster of the hour right? When he does show up, it's truly breathtaking. The 350ft behemoth roars and stomps his way through to stop the winged MUTO.

And my goodness does the action not disappoint, I was literally on the edge of my seat. Alexandre Desplat's score is basically a homage to the original 1954 film. Which is chilling, yet satisfying enough to keep me in the film. Hearing the little rumblings once Godzilla is a foot, gets me excited, despite the fact that he's not involved a whole bunch, I still enjoyed it.

Overall Godzilla is a pulse pounding rollercoaster ride once the action sets in, and truly a well crafted film from Gareth Edwards. Only thing to do now is to watch it again, this time in IMAX 3D!!

RATING: 4.5/5
