My Movie Grade - D
At times I wonder if Hollywood has just run out of things to re-make. They should give this one a rest. Graphic wise - it wasn't a bad. Of course Godzilla has gone from being the size of normal buildings to tower 50 feet+ over them. It was really ridiculous and unnecessary. The story line was there either. Really action packed but just not a few well thought out concept. Story starts with a nuclear meltdown in Japan and a crew killed included the main character's mother and from there it just goes south. Godzilla travels some 800 thousand miles across the world making stops in Hawaii, San Francisco and Las Vegas. But what makes this even sillier is that it's not chasing this new creature that has wings and is trying to make it's way to it's match and mate. Godzilla goes from being FOE to FRIEND in this version too which is hard to believe based of his size alone. Also the fact that they try to make us believe that something as big as he could live in the ocean for centuries without being noticed -__- Cut the crap. This is just ridiculous. My suggestion is that you only see this movie if your bored and looking for entertainment. Rent at Redbox or wait for Netflix!
I know how much everyone loves a history lesson but I had to take a moment and mention the history about Godzilla. Godzilla is a fictional giant monster or daikaiju originating from a series of tokusatsu films of the same name from Japan. He first appeared in Ishirō Honda's 1954 film Godzilla. Since then, Godzilla has gone on to become a worldwide pop culture icon starring in 28 films produced by Toho Co., Ltd. He started out as a slightly larger monster and has now taken form in two different Hollywood versions as a GIGANTIC super human monster that lives in subway systems and in the ocean. Within the context of the Japanese films, Godzilla's exact origins vary, but it is generally depicted as an enormous, violent, prehistoric sea monster awakened and empowered by nuclear radiation. Its size is inconsistent, changing from film to film and even from scene to scene for the sake of artistic license. The miniature sets and costumes are typically built at a 1/25 - 1/50 scale and filmed at 240 frames per second, to create the illusion of great size. In the original 1954 film, Godzilla was scaled to be 50 meters tall (164 feet). This was done so Godzilla could just peer over the largest buildings in Tokyo at the time. In the American version, Godzilla is said to be "over 400 feet tall. It's comical, how things get so twisted out of focus.
That's my take,
