Godzilla (or Gojira if you’re from China) is a film about a mega massive hench lizard monster that loves to be cheeky and destroy loads of buildings and stuff. There have been about one thousand different films with Gojira in, but this one is good because it’s not in foreign. At first I thought that this was a sequel to the excellent one from twenty years ago but then I remembered that they did a cartoon sequel for that which had a friendly Gojira monster in it. This is totally different.
It stars Brian Cranston as a scientist whose wife dies and then he goes a bit nuts and dies pretty early on which is a waste because he’s a brilliant actor. The proper main character is one of those wooden meat heads that can’t act that Hollywood seems to love who plays the son of Brian. He is married to Marykateandashley Olsons sister and she is a proper cutie. Probably the other most known actor is Ken Whatanarbay who loves to always say Gojira.
The plot can be summed up by two naughty evil monsters march towards America to mate and Gojira wants to eat them so he goes on holiday to America. LET THE FIGHT BEGIN. Cue loads of action packed scenes of buildings blowing up, army guys shooting things and monsters battering each other. There’s also a mega nice scene when the army guys jump out of a plane and parachute into the ruined city which looks proper cool. I won’t spoil the ending but Gojira wins by using some sick lightning breath attack which is pure badass.
All in all I really really enjoyed this film because of the action and because Gojira is cool so I will give it a WELL NICE/10. It could have scored higher if it had a theme song by Jamiroquai or if Brian Cranston had been in the whole film.
