Godzilla 3D

Radioactive giant Godzilla storms into cinemas (in 3D and IMAX 3D) after nearly 30 Japanese films and two prior American versions. Excitingly, this is from director Gareth Edwards - his second film after the excellent Monsters (2010).

The diverse cast includes Kick-Ass' Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen and Juliette Binoche. Co-writer Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption) has said the film will present Godzilla as "a terrifying force of nature", and on the story's arc said: "There is a very compelling human drama that I got to weave into it. It’s not that cliched, thinly disguised romance or bromance, or whatever. It’s different, it’s a different set of circumstances than you’re used to seeing."

WOW what an unexpected win

GO AND SEE THIS IN A CINEMA! This is easily the best action-esque big screen spectacle Ive seen in years. On top of that its also a decent flick. The human interest story just isn't and the lead actor is almost a young Keanu (but not in a Bill and Teds or even Matrix kinda way). All in all this is easily the movie that I have least worried about spending...

Great Godzilla

AS far as size and noise goes this is the best Godzilla yet. It honoured the original and the idea of the Japanese legend that has been created. Cranston sets the story off to a rip roaring gripping start and its continued somewhat by Taylor-Johnson till the bitter sweet end, they have done well to develop a Godzilla that can exist in today's environment...

And Godzilla came back from ashes

Finally, someone had Godzilla reborn for the best. Sensitive subject, but I am particurlarly fan of the way Gareth Edwards extracted the very essential substance of Godzilla to adapt it to our current world, govern by capitalism and globalization, and lead it to be significant to everyone, whilst keeping deep roofs present in the history. More globally,...

Edwards seems to have miscalculated our investment in his cast.

That rare breed of blockbuster that emphasises character over spectacle and slow-burn tension over relentless action sequences.

A bit more human drama wouldn’t have gone amiss.

One of the pleasures the movie offers is the thought that actors who have done splendid work elsewhere are being paid well for shouting, grimacing and spouting expository claptrap.

Gareth Edwards's big-budget B-movie lacks a human face.

On a second try, Hollywood does the behemoth justice. Almost.

This Godzilla stomps but very rarely romps.
