The arrogance of men is thinking nature is in their control and not the other way around.
- Special effects well done
- Human-side story done well
- Parallels between human main and Godzilla are somewhat interesting
- Multiple monsters
- Believable characters (Yeah, I know people that would shoot a rifle at a giant monster thinking it would do something)
- Interesting spin on ancient creatures
- Most monster-on-monster battles are nothing more than teases in brief snippets
- Overall monster screen time is less than what most people will want
This movie is going to get a lot of unnecessary flack (much like Pacific Rim) by an audience that wants a very specific thing and doesn't get enough of it to make them happy. The humans drive the plot, the monsters (although effective) don't get large amounts of screen time, and most of the fighting takes place off-screen. That being said, the movie is still a good movie (3D didn't really do much for me, so maybe skip that additional cost), and leaps and bounds above that movie America made last time. Just remember, go into it expecting something different from the normal run of Godzilla movies past - it's not heavy on monster-monster action, but what is there is pretty good, and it's more than enough to make you want them to continue making more.
