Short Movie Review
Godzilla, the 2014 version is directed by Gareth Edwards and the stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe, David Strathairn, Elizabeth Olsen, big cast of very talented people in this movie. Godzilla has a more realistic take on the character and that’s what this movie is promoted, as a more grounded take of Godzilla and they definitely accomplished that very well in this movie without getting too much into plot details.
We have Bryan Cranston who definitely believes this is a real thing that is happening, the government is trying to hide from people, Ken Watanabe is researching it. Aaron Taylor-Johnson plays Bryan Cranston’s son in the film and they kind of all come together as a core to try to figure out what they can do about certain things that are rising up out of the earth and this other thing is rising up out of the earth and how they can make this all be okay for the millions of people on earth while these giant things are now walking around.
Godzilla was epic. This is an incredible looking movie not just talking about CGI, this movie is directed extremely well. This movie portrays the creatures in this film as animals. They’re not cool CGI monster things, they’re animals. What would they be doing, is it their goal to cause destruction amongst human kind? No. They’re just animals trying to survive. That’s one of the things that made this movie so great. The more realistic take on what would actually happen if something like this rose out of the ocean.
The human perspective of this event is so great. Showcasing how a human would deal with this larger than life quite literally thing and that is one of the best parts of this movie. the movie is actually very eerie suspenseful and kind of scary.
