I really, really wanted to like this movie. The action scenes were over the top awesome but, like most Godzilla movies, were separated by waaaay too many 'human' scenes. In some cases this isn't a problem, but wow were they bad in this one. It was so strange because I would be on the edge of my seat one minute and nearly asleep the next.
The human/Xilian side story (kind of was the main story actually...) was goofy. I don't care about mutants or hand-to-hand combat. All I want to see is Godzilla fight some monsters and wreck some cities doing it. If they human scenes had JUST been about the Earth Defense Force, fine, but this mutant stuff was stupid.
On a whole the monsters were satisfying. I thought the last fight was only decent but the rest were great (if not a bit too short). Including the American Godzilla was a hilarious idea and I was happy King Caesar made the cut.
Worth a watch, but not one of the greats. Kind of.
