Godzilla is back after a 9 year rest and he brings back the power. I would always watch this one as a kid, and I have noticed some things now that I like and don't like.
The positive is the look of Godzilla, he is scary! The shots of Godzilla just make him look powerful and terrifying, even know I thought he looked super scary, and that's how Godzilla should look like. I did love the attack of the ships and the small teases they do before you see the big picture. I also liked the acting, I didn't think it was bad like some other Godzilla movies. The female lead was decent and so were the other actors. I loved the way they always referred to 1954 and bringing back Raymond Burr was great! I thought the dubbing was okay, some of it was off but most of it was decent and it didn't bother me.
What I didn't like, was a character that I had no idea who he was. They just showed him in a restaurant and he's taunting Godzilla, but there was no intro for him or who the hell he was. Was he funny, sometimes, but at the same time he was a little annoying, but he got what was coming to him. Another thing was Super-X. All of a sudden the characters were like bring in Super-X, well you didn't even talk about Super-X during the whole movie, they kept saying nothing can stop him yet they had Super-X the whole time but never mentioned it one bit until Godzilla was destroying the city. So I was a little annoyed at that. One small thing also was a small sea monster attack, they didn't explain anything about it and what the heck it was, it just attacked one of the characters and it was like that's it.
So the movie was very well done, it had some flaws, but all in I thought it was very well done, and the effects were much better. The ending was also very sentimental in a way, but don't get too worked up there is a sequel to this movie, but the ending was very sentimental. Enjoy the movie because Godzilla is the money shot in the movie.
