Godzilla Movie Review

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By: Anupama Chopra Site: Star World

Godzilla made me aware of exactly how much disbelief I am willing to suspend in a monster movie. As it turns out, I’m happy to be invested in a scaly, yellow-eyed 355-foot tall CGI lizard. But I only do one monster at a time. So the MUTO were a deal-breaker for me. Still, Godzilla himself has weight, literally and figuratively. Can someone give this force of nature the film he deserves? I’m going with two and a half stars.

The first half is a bit slow but the special effects are outstanding and when Godzilla appears, it does true justice to the epic scale, size and proportion of the monsters on screen. And yet, there is something oddly familiar about Godzilla. Those who have seen previous avatars of this scaly beast will immediately reconnect with that sense of speechlessness and rapt awe they felt when they saw Godzilla in their childhood. Godzilla’s roar is not for the faint-hearted. This is a fantastic homage to monster movies of yore and is bound to go down as a modern classic. Go Godzilla!

Still, the new Godzilla may not appeal to an impatient viewer looking for instant gratification nor will it overawe with its scale this soon after the Pacific Rim experience. What it does though is join the ranks of those envelope-pushing films that celebrate the legend of invincible, enormous creatures — mythical, prehistoric or extra-terrestrial — by respecting its iconic source and upgrading it with ingenious vision that harmoniously combines technological advancement and fanboy perspective. What next? Why King Kong versus Godzilla, of course!

But this is a film whose only redeeming feature is that Binoche and Cranston shoulder part of its acting line-up – but just partly. Taylor-Johnson and Olsen cringingly pale before the big man, and that is despite the fact that Godzilla is nowhere in the picture (literally) in the first half.

Edwards turns Godzilla into a road trip film instead of a standard issue disaster porno. Also like in Monsters, he puts most of the monster mayhem in the backdrop of the character buildup. Some might be pissed because it’s that kind of movie. As for me, I’m very glad that this is a Godzilla movie with a lot of heart, soul and a fairly decent helping of intelligence. The biggest surprise, however, is that fact that Godzilla is not just a Godzilla movie, but it is also the best Superhero movie of the summer.

People are thus somewhat incidental to the story, and their feelings – mostly fear and determination – are less interesting than those of the ancient giants, who in their slimy, scaly, computer-generated movements and expressions register rage and anguish with an intensity beyond what the humans can muster. And in Godzilla’s eyes you see something else, too: the desire, at long last, to be left alone.

    Monstrous Homage to good old-times! Revisit and relive… [3.5/5]

    The creature porno is probably one of the very first impressions I had of Hollywood. As small-town kids, then JURASSIC PARK was our only point of high-on-excitement source of entertainment on VHS. GODZILLA (’98), though wasn’t much ably equipped & remarkable to overshadow Steven Spielberg’s classic, was the second most popular in the segment. Evolution is what time offers to the mankind. 16 years later, this mammoth creature known for mass destruction and damages that bring your guts out is again on loose, only to bigger the excitement and better the entertainment.

    Gareth Edwards’ GODZILLA works mostly on the fear of unknown. You never actually see him rising to its fullest till the later part of the movie. You’re always made sure of its presence being felt around from the first frame but as quick as the plot goes thicken, Godzilla’s found track gets all hazy and blurred with shifting focus from this one legendary monster to a couple […and a quite romantic one] of new additions; gigantic Mutos. Mutos that find their energy-boosters in radioactive materials and are capable enough to gulp down all the electricity, Las Vegas would need to produce its glamorously lit shine & sheen.

    The winged male Muto and the mechanical-looking female Muto must get stopped before they could breed another set of Mutos to create massive destruction of human civilization. The only way out is nuclear detonation but hold your horses as this newer version of GODZILLA is also a gifted surprise. So if you are going in with pre-conceived expectations of having just another monster-movie, you might come out enjoying a super-hero flick. And this super-hero is none other than the age-old bulky-scaly Godzilla!

    Where the second part is mainly dedicated to the nerve-wracking, nail-biting and terrifying final combat between the three monsters, the first half is quite a slow effort to build up the most frightening situation mankind could ever face. Graphically constructed Godzilla is definitely bigger, better and scarier than its previous version. With the roar filled with angst, the thumping walk and the immeasurable scale of its huge built; this is the most evolved creature seen in recent times. If you could sustain the boredom at places while assembling all the excitement towards the much awaited intensifying of the leading force, you would sure find all of it worthy enough to stay back; at the end.

    On the 3D front, it is more of an atmospheric addition to be in the same league and not for just some attention-grabbing tricks to create fake experiences. So, don’t really expect much from that part. Performances are also strictly regular. The visual effects are top-notch. Watch out for the power-packed finale that leaves you breathless and filled with a delightful entertainment. After all, it’s better late than never! GODZILLA is a monstrous homage to good old times. Revisit and relive it! [3.5/5]
