Godzilla faces off the MUTOs (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organisms) in an epic battle that will decide the fate of humanity.
A paranoid Joe Brody (Cranston) is a nuclear physicist who seems to have an air of impending doom and dread, albeit not without good cause. He investigates strange happenings at the Janjira power plant (a barely- disguised reference to the real-world Fukushima nuclear plant meltdown) in Japan and later, after his wife Sandra (Binoche) and others die in what seems to be a natural accident, he knows that it is anything but natural.
In a prologue, a series of events spanning continents and countries as well as scientists Ichiro Serizawa and Sally Hawkins (Watanabe and Graham) lead to some interesting developments. Later, Joe's single-minded scientific pursuit turns into an almost demented obsession and this causes him to be estranged from his son Ford (Johnson) who grows up to be quite unlike his father. He is disciplined and quite in control of his emotions. He lives with his wife (Olsen) and family in San Francisco where he serves in the US Navy as a bomb expert. This skill will serve him in good stead later on, when the planet is threatened by what are ambiguously called Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organisms (MUTOs).
Godzilla's destructive impulsive is channeled against the MUTOs and the leviathan lizard battles his sharp-clawed adversaries against a backdrop of a city (San Francisco) that is predictably enough turned to rubble. 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!
By releasing the film in 2014, Godzilla celebrated its 60th anniversary.
Director Gareth Edwards wanted Godzilla to be an anti hero.
The film was made at an estimated budget of $160 million.
Initially, the film was tentatively titles as Godzilla 3D to the Max and was to be a remake of director Yoshimitsu Banno's Godzilla vs. Hedorah.
It was rumoured that Guillermo del Toro was approached to helm this ambitious project. However, Gareth Edwards finally directed it.
As per media reports, director Gareth Edwards added aspects of the faces of bears, dogs and eagles into Godzilla's face design.
The famous Godzilla roar was improvised and worked upon to make it more impactful.
Effects are good not dizzying or overdone. The assorted monsters move naturally and are relatively realistic.<br/>Everything about this new Godzilla is great! From design, script and shooting, everything in my opinion is an improvement to an otherwise bland way of making movies like we have nowadays.
