Godzilla (Film Review)

May 14, 2014
After too much hype and speculations, "Godzilla" is now making his big comeback after 16 years. And boy does he deliver. Everything in this film screams "awesomeness" and while the creature canonly be seen at least 28 minutes, Director Gareth Edwards manages to grip audiences with its exceptional action sequences --and a lot of mayhem. Definitely the most fitting word for this film is 'EPIC', because it just is.

Bryan Cranston plays Joe Brody, a nuclear physicist investigates a questionable seismic activity that destroys lives inside a nuclear plant, including his wife. Fifteen years later, everyone still thought this was a natural disaster,  but not Joe. He believed that someone's hiding it, a malevolent creature that is perilous to mankind.

I must admit I was a bit skeptical going to this movie, because I had 'enormous' expectation through this. But it exceeded it. I really love "Godzilla" so much, that my heart was pumping fast throughout the movie. The action sequences wee locked up until the film's third act, and boy was it worth the wait. The great thing about this film is the amount of suspense put throughout it's characters. It literally came to the point where I was holding my breath, not knowing of the awesomeness that's gonna happen next. Even the dialogue-driven scenes was handled very well, especially the scene where Bryan Cranston do his monologue.
Cranston was terrific in this movie, and most likely my favorite part of the movie. He brings so much emotion where you felt so much within him. He made me cried (there I said it) at the film's first act, I just wish there's more of him. On the other hand, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, though I really like the actor in 'Kick-Ass' and 'Nowhere Boy', lacked the amount of emotion he needed since he was the film's central character. He did what he had to do, but I expected more from him.

Probably the most ideal way seeing this is at the biggest screen available. Specifically IMAX. The action scenes, Alexander Desplate's amazing score, the ROAR, and the scope alone fits in this gigantic screen. And did I forgot to mention the visuals were astounding? It definitely changes the movie to a whole new level. And Godzilla, looked fantastic.

'Godzilla's triumphant return has never been this better. It's a long wait that's rewarding indeed. Welome back "The King Of Monsters".

The geek rates "Godzilla" an 9.0/ 10.

'Godzilla' will be shown starting tomorrow, May 15, 2014 in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D.
