Many of you may already know from our podcast that I was able to see the new Godzilla in theaters. I don't claim to be any sort of expert on the topic of Godzilla in any way, shape, or form. That is my disclaimer on the review of the flick.
In the rare case you may not have any idea what Godzilla is about here's a brief synopsis. A nuclear power plan is destroyed that Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad Fame) and his wife worked at in a mysterious accident. Years later Joe Brody is obsessed over what happened due to the accident that caused the death of his wife, and convinces his now older son to go back to the city near by that has been quarantined off. They end up getting picked up by the authorities, and get transported to a holding area at the power plan, soon after you find out that the accident was caused by a monster egg/cocoon, and then it hatches and chaos ensues. After that we move towards the monster fights.
Godzilla 2014 ended up being one of my favorite Godzilla films I've seen. As I said above, I'm in no way a Godzilla aficionado, and I have not seen all Godzilla movies, but I would have to put it in my Top five. When I went to see Godzilla, I only had a couple expectations, the first being that it shouldn't be the 1998 version, the second was that I expected to see monsters fight. With that being said I would like to say that they delivered on my expectations. Over all I'm going to have to give Godzilla a 5 out of 5. The entire flick is enjoyable to watch, and the humans in the flick made sense to be the type of people to focus on in the story.
