I can’t promise you anything as there will be spoiler
I am back.
And because it is the holidays, I can finally roam around and do stuff I can’t do during the weekends. (Movie day)
Let’s get started.
The film was apparently (a spoiler) and a sequel from the old one. When I say the old one, I mean the original one. From japan. (I’ll explain later)
It started with a black and white film, showing clips and videos of bomb test and droppings over the years. It is revealed in the end of the clips that the were an anomaly creature lurking.
The movie was pretty long. (Around 2 hours) So, if you’re thinking of watching it in a cinema, bring a blanket or something. Or you could just watch it at home.
So, as the actors we have the dashing-ly good-looking Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Lieutenant Ford Brody. Ken Watanabe as Dr. Ishiro Serizawa, a scientist with Monarch who believe in Godzilla being the savior of the universe, the ultimate predator and so forth.
Next, we have Bryan Cranston as Joe Brody, Ford’s father, a nuclear physicist and former engineer at the Janjira nuclear plant. He was working at the nuclear plant when something went wrong and completely destoyed the facility, taking her wife (who is played by Juliette Binoche as Sandra Brody) with it.
After quite a long cut (15 years). We are introduced to Elizabeth Olsen as Elle Brody, Ford’s wife, a nurse and their son.

The plot started when few of the cast found an egg of a creature that feed on radiaton. (Yes, radiation) It wasn’t long before we are introduced to the first kaiju (monster) which was shockingly not Godzilla. (Or Gojira as Serizawa mentioned)
It was called MUTO during the entire film. (Stands for Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism or what I usually call it, a massive pain in the butt) It resembles a huge grasshopper and can actually fly. (One of it can) And later on we are surprised with another MUTO who decided it’s mating time.
Godzilla however, is no longer the one we know from the 1998 film. It is portrayed as a predator, a keeper, the guardian toward the balance of nature. ‘He’ shows no real harm toward humans except when people started becoming frantic and goes guns blazing.
Anyway, the only thing I think that is very nice to enjoy is the fight scene. Oh and about the sequel. It is actually a sequel to the original Godzilla franchise where he is portrayed as a hero. And it is clearly shown when you see his atomic breath melts the inside of the MUTO. (Which is his signature moves from the old movies)
One more thing. About Godzilla. He’s fat.
In short. If you love the fight scene from KingKong, you’ll love Godzilla.
