Godzilla Review: Godzilla is directed by Gareth Edwards and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen. Godzilla is a film to experience only in theaters, you will not experience Godzilla the same on your TV, phone or computer. Disclosing the plot of the film would ruin the surprise. The acting is amazing, with Bryan Cranston giving an incredible performance as the tortured father that will leave you riveted in every scene he’s in. Ken Watanabe is also great in the film playing as the scientist. Aaron Taylor-Johnson isn’t as good, but he still did a pretty decent job as the son to Bryan Cranston.
The CGI and sound effects are on par with Jurassic Park and are probably the best thing about this film. The sound affects truly give Godzilla the roar he deserves. Every scene involving Godzilla is extremely well done. Gareth Edwards has done an amazing job at making you feel the weight of Godzilla’s steps as he walks/swims through anything in his way (it actually feels like your there). The CGI in the film is absolutely groundbreaking with very scene being extremely powerful as you watch huge skyscrapers and complete destruction of cites fall to the ground with ease. The lighting in the film is really dark and gives the viewer a sense of horror as literally god strikes down upon the world.
Godzilla is a must see movie experience that can only be experienced at the movies. Although the acting could have been a little bit better than expected, it didn’t deter from the main focus of the film to much which is obviously Godzilla. The CGI and special effects were also incredible and groundbreaking. See Godzilla as soon as possible.
