I watched Godzilla this afternoon. I thought this movie was a huge improvement over the last American Godzilla movie but it wasn't perfect. The build-up of the first third of the movie worked great. Bryan Cranston and Ken Wantanabe did an excellent job
of working to create a sense of mystery and dread, but once the focus of the movie turned to Aaron Taylor-Johnson, whom I usually like, the movie took sputtered to a crawl. There was too much attention paid to the MUTOs and not nearly enough paid to
the star of the movie, Godzilla. I wish directors like Gareth Edwards and Michael Bay would learn that the audience is not there to see a bunch of stars running around chasing contrived plot devices. When I go to a Transformers movie or a Godzilla movie, I want to see robots and monster pounding the crap out each other. That said, the last 15-20 minutes of the movie was well worth the price of admission and when Godzilla was on screen, I couldn't help grinning like a little kid.
