Movie – Godzilla: A+

godzillaA+
I’ve been a Godzilla fan for years, despite most of them being cartoonish at best and simply awful at worst. But not this time. This Godzilla does everything as it should. The natural disaster metaphors are clear. The danger-of-nuclear-power legacy is evident. And they found a way of making Godzilla the “good guy” without dumbing him down. The human perspective worked great, creating that confusing sense of breath-holding terror alongside humbling awe. Everything looked great too, with awesome visuals throughout (though at times at the expensive of logic). And of course, the final giant monster smackdown is almost overwhelmingly entertaining. Godzilla is finally worthy of his King of Monsters title again.
