as a piece of cinema history: 4/10
It was a movie that wasnt supposed to be the next saving private ryan, but god damn is cranston good at what he does, I just wish he had more screentime.
Ford was really bland of a protagonist
there were a lot of cheesy lines "Humans think they have nature under control, but its the other way around" who came up with that masterpiece
I saw a lot of continuity errors. For one a nuclear fucking bomb went off 5 minutes off the coast of San Fransisco and all the evacuees in the stadium didnt feel the radiation? hard to believe.
That being said, I loved the crap out of the movie for what it was. It was hella cool and they pit a lot of work into the CGI and it showed.
Also, dat roar.
#63 - popkornking (05/19/2014) [-]
copy and pasting from another post: I really enjoyed the movie except for how they sort of tried to make you cheer for Godzilla at the end, I mean "Savior of Mankind?" well no not really seeing as he probably killed thousands of people throughout the movie including hundreds of kids that were on the Golden gate bridge.
#53 - cozer (05/19/2014) [-]
I thought it was a great movie. I can understand why some people wouldn't like it, but I still think it's a solid movie. Could have been more monster fighting in it, but the fighting scenes were few and far between so it made them feel more special imo. I don't know, I just like the way they done it I guess.
#45 - Ken M (05/19/2014) [-]
1 hour of bull shit then 30 minutes of bad ass monster fighting glorious fire lazers
#29 - quabs (05/19/2014) [-]
are these guys shitting me?????? every time there was a monster fight, they would fucking cut away to boring people bullshit. the 1st time when it cut to the news was funny, the second time where the doors close on the monster fight made me mad, and the 3rd time when they were hidden behind the buildings, made me furious. i dont know how anyone thought that was acceptable
#75 - wilfredfanforever (05/19/2014) [-]
"Break from the action".
Nigga the action didn't really pick up till about the end of the movie. I liked the suspense and build up, but I wanted to actually see Godzilla wreck shit. Every time the mutos started to fuck shit, the flew away. Godzilla showed up, cutaway. I agree t was a good movie, but It could have been better.
#227 - propanex (05/19/2014) [-]
Also, he must feel the humans are balanced to mother mature. If he didn't feel this way, he would rampage cities till he felt the population was down to a safe level for Earth to be safe. But, as I see it, humans are destroying Earth, and I would think he would see this and react to it like he did to the Mutos.
#226 - propanex (05/19/2014) [-]
Yet he should probably know that the size of the bombs have increased over the years. The ones used against him in the 40s were, like the movie said, "firecrackers" in comparison to the new bombs. If he was 300 meters from any modern nuclear weapon when it goes off it should kill him. If it doesn't, then he can feed off the radiation. (Movie stated both monsters did this)

the one with the doors was the worst. cause the city was in tac before that scene. then when they show the city again it was on fire and half of everything was destroyed and i was sitting in the theater thinking. wow it would have been great to see how all this happened.

IT was all part of the build up. When you finally get to the fight and the Orchestrated Godzilla theme starts playing it was fucking awesome, and they did a great job with the buildup. They always did pan shots feet to head for Godzilla till the end of the movie when they showed his whole body. That movie gave me blue balls!

I thought the first 100 minutes were good (some people hated it because they have no clue what build up is or tension) but the last 20 minutes don't live up to the tension that I wanted to see. The fights were a little too short and missed some opportunities. For example At the end where Godzilla wins I think they should have made him just roar then enter the Ocean like in all of his movies, instead of lying down for awhile and then getting up after the main character meets his wife and kid. I thought the ending should have been, godzilla roaring and going back into the ocean and the main character defuses the bomb, then we see the aftermath of the destruction (family back together and happy). And then we cut to a final scene with Godzilla just diving deep into the water to rest and they play the classic Godzilla theme into the credits.
I thought the movie had some really good charm to it. For example they do show the aftermath of destruction (missing persons, casualties, injuries, etc.) which is something that never ever happens in a Godzilla movie. The bridge scene where Godzilla gets attacked by planes and battleships was good because it reminded me how the other Godzilla (1997) died, and we are very satisfied seeing Godzilla just brush it off and plow through the bridge killing many women and children. I think it's important to remember Godzilla doesn't really give a shit about casualties.
#111 - themightymrplow (05/19/2014) [-]
I was kind of disappointed, honestly. You're absolutely right in everything you said, except the FOUR (I counted out of anger) teases to the fights really pissed me off. Four separate time they showed the build up and start of a monster fight, then either cut away or to the next day completely.
That being said, the end fight and Godzilla as a whole made the whole thing absolutely worth it.

Welp, obviously the original Gojira. Godzilla vs Mothra 1992, Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla 1993, Godzilla vs Space Godzilla, Godzilla vs Destoroyah, Godzilla 2000, Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla and Godzilla Final Wars are my favorites. All good Godzilla experiences. As well as the new one, it was Godzilla through and through, but with a darker more serious tone that just WORKED
#141 - RisenLichen (05/19/2014) [-]
Well, I have a few questions about godzilla that I hope you dont mind answering, I did see the new movie and it was actually my first and only godzilla movie yet.
My questions are
1. Is he an alien?
2. Is he good or bad?
3. Why did he feel the need to save everyone from those creatures? Was it truly nature taking its course or is Godzilla the MUTO's natural predator?
#157 - dandamanzx (05/19/2014) [-]
1. Godzilla has never been an alien, he's a mutated species that's the result of nuclear experiments. In this movie, he's always existed, but he's been dormant feeding off radiation and hydrogen from the bottom of the sea.
2. It depends. There's cases when he's just gone on city destroying rampages, and in others he's killed monsters who do just that, then returns to the sea. In this one, he's a force of nature. He didn't try to attack humans, but beat the shit out of the Mutos which brings me into...
3. The Mutos were an abomination of nature. Godzilla is a force of nature. Like they explained, Godzilla is an alpha predator. Those Mutos were in his way of being top dog, and keeping nature out of balance. Thus, he attacke them.
#187 - dandamanzx (05/19/2014) [-]
That skeleton was one of Godzilla's species I believe, with the parasitic Mutos inside of it. Godzilla has a radioactive heart, so those things feed off it. They were an abomination of nature because they were pumped full of radiation and made more powerful than Nature intended. Humans created the abomination, and Godzilla was nature's correcting force.
#48 - WATCHAGUNADOBOUTIT (05/19/2014) [-]
I agree, the protagonist and his wife were terrible, they didn't pick good actors; just pretty faces. Also, the scientist was good, but boy... If I had to see him one more time looking worried into the distance avoiding eye contact I would lose it... Bryan Cranston was, indeed, amazing. I'd give it a 8/10
#24 - nerdicorn (05/19/2014) [-]
SPOILERS! I really liked the way they just killed him off. It really says something about the movie. It wasn't supposed to have an amazing story, in fact they went out of there way to make it stupid and a little cheesy. YOu know why? Cause it was about the GIANT fucking monsters fucking up the place and how it affected the people in the world. IT was a fucking awesome 9/10. For what it was, it was an amazing movie. People who dislike this movie and who are giving it bad ratings just didn't know what they were watching.
#126 - thevoodoofrog (05/19/2014) [-]
It was actually handled really well.
They get one of the best actors working right now to do the exposition part of the movie, and get the entire plot set up. Then BAM, no more acting, its about the fucking giant monsters now! Hell, they knew the protagonist was basically a bland every man.

#12 - cheatman (05/18/2014) [-]
Good, but falsely advertised. The adverts made out Godzilla to be this all destroying monster king when in fact he was acted like a retarded superman (my mate summed up the film as 'Don't worry humans, I'm here to save you... Whoops. sorry for stepping on that').
I get why they wanted to make Godzilla out to be a good guy, but to a point where it looks like he's doing it on purpose is just stupid.
#18 - yellowcardraiden (05/18/2014) [-]
I feel like the whole point is that he didn't really care about humanity that much, he just wanted order to come back except of having this things wipe everything out. Like mister asian man who had the look of contemplating life was saying, it was nature taking its course.
#23 - cheatman (05/19/2014) [-]
No seriously, At the part where godzillas at the bridge and the military are shooting at him and the missiles are flying at the bus with the kids, Godzilla VERY conveniently steps in front of the bus and the missiles hit him, and then he waits til the bus leaves before smashing through the bridge? that and when he conveniently dives under the naval ship instead of going through it?
Nah, that isn't Godzilla ignoring humans for nature, he was very particular about not smashing humans in those parts.
#28 - cheatman (05/19/2014) [-]
Yeah he doesn't have beef, but rather he doesn't CARE about humans, he'd barely notice them unless they'd do things that'd piss him off like SHOOT him... WHICH THEY DID. If he simply didn't care about them, he would've gone straight through the ship, instead Godzilla restrained himself from fucking up too much of the humans stuff.
#35 - nerdicorn (05/19/2014) [-]
DO you think the bullets and missiles really did anything to him? They were scratching him. Plus don't you think it would have been just a little bit easier to go under the ship rather than ram it? Creatures who are even halfway intelligent would go around something rather than through it.
#40 - cheatman (05/19/2014) [-]
Godzilla's intelligent, there's no argument there, but when presented the option of either going through something that wouldn't slow me down, or going to the effort of diving to avoid it, I'd go the lazy option.
The whole bullets and missiles thing I've argued with my mate with, it's nothing to do with whether it hurts, it's to do with the fact it's fucking annoying, like being pelted with rice krispies constantly.
#26 - Ken M (05/19/2014) [-]
#31 - cheatman (05/19/2014) [-]
Possible, but considering he's essentially gonna wrestle two other giant monsters through buildings and crap, it'd be safe to say he wouldn't care at that point. Also, if Godzilla did care about getting shit stuck on him, he would've gone under the bridge rather than through it.
#3 - roxasbaby (05/18/2014) [-]
I thought it was okay. However i felt like they decided on a different story halfway through. They built up bryan cranston's side and made him out to be the protagonist in the trailers, but then he goes and dies randomly after a ton of build up. The fights were pretty darn awesome though.
#4 - faimbot (05/18/2014) [-]
Ok first of all, bryan cranstons entire story arc could have been removed and the movie would still have made sense, he dies 15 minutes in, the entire 15 minutes are a character arc that has no business being there because it amounts to absolutely nothing. Seriously, the opening until the first monster appearance does nothing for the story whatsoever.
Furthermore, the dialogue and plot exposition. Holy shit, inception guy actually got laughs in the entire cinema with his lines "WE CALL HEEM GAWJEEERRAAA"
and of course my favourite "They must do BATTLE" this isnt fucking feudal japan, these arent the samurai you ass nugget, noone speaks like that.
Special honorary mention of "GAWJEERA is here to restore balance, he will defeat them". Oh god kill me now.
Main character was the son i guess, his arc at least had some reason to it, he was a bomb disposal dude in the wrong place at the right time. For the 12 minutes of actual action (combined with the 8 minutes of severe hype and anticipation when the monsters sort of see each other) which were amazing, the rest of the movie is a complete fucking farce.
That ending, only inception guy "believes" godzilla is a good guy, noone else does, everyone telling him we still need to kill him. Then after he has levelled the city not quite to the degree of superman but still, the have time to air his departure on a massive screen in the football stadium (and by air, i mean the journalists whose families are all probably dead, most of their equipment ruined by the monster battle and of course the emp attack, and their entire infrastructure most likely in fucking tatters) "Godzilla saviour of our city".
FUCKING WHAT????? Why is this film such a goddamn piece of shit, when it has godzilla decapitating another monster and flailing his severed head as a victory trophy? and the whole story of the boy who goes missing, why was that even included? ffs man. /rant
#209 - hawaiianhappysauce (05/19/2014) [-]
I hated the "Savior of the City" thing too. I think it would have been better if Godzilla just went into the water after killing the monster and the guy disarmed the bomb. I mean, that was the whole points of him being the only guy who knew how to disarm it right? It was foreshadowed to disarm it, not send it out to sea and let it blow up (which would have caused a shock wave that killed more people and cause radiation poisoning).
#206 - hawaiianhappysauce (05/19/2014) [-]
I thought that Cranston's character should have been kept alive the whole time and let the arc continue. I get the impression that he and his son suffered a loss from MUTO, the son and father have a conflict because the father spends so much time focusing on his work (even the conspiracy work). I thought that in the end, after the son going through the dangerous mission that the father (Cranston) could have been worried the whole time and at the end he shows that what is really important is what he has now, his son and his family.
But no, they kill him off instead.
#211 - hawaiianhappysauce (05/19/2014) [-]
Another thing is this. I'm not sure if Cranston wanted to be extremely involved in the movie because I did read that he almost turned down the role. So maybe he didn't want to take a huge risk with his career. Lets face it, Godzilla movies don't typically hit it big in the box office and they are rarely considered high quality movies. If you are an actor who starred in many TV shows and you make a theatrical Debut with a movie like Argo, you really want to maintain a high profile.
Remember star wars? The man who played Obi Wan was a highly respected Actor who won best actor for Bridge on the River Kwai, but he was sort of embarrassed by being in the star wars movie and he wanted to be killed off. Honestly, I'm sad that he didn't like the movie that he is most famous for, but that's how some actors feel.
So for a movie that had low expectations to begin with, what did you expect?
Honestly, I could go through the Avengers, a highly praised movie, and rip it in half with criticism. That movie too lacks a meaningful story arc and that movie also has no depth in the characters (but they are sort of funny and we don't care).
To me, when it comes to finding a movie that is entertaining, as long as I don't hate the character and his/her decisions, I am satisfied.
I do think they did go a little overboard with people sitting around explaining what the plot is to the audience, but it could have been a lot worse (transformers).
Actually. Compared to the other action movies I've seen (and what the trailers are showing me), this is better. The amazing Spiderman sucked, the tom Cruise movie looks boring, Lucy looks dumb, I'm sick and tired of X-men, and I am not interested in Transformers 4 where Michael Bay ruins Walbergs career with lines like "I think we just found a transformer." Though I do think I will see the expendables for a good "haha this is so over the top" movie.
But I know what kind of movie I am dealing with and I let things slide.
#213 - faimbot (05/19/2014) [-]
I can understand that, my big concern was how the entire introduction to the character bore no consequence to the film.
The death of obi wan changed many things, but thats because he was the one who set in motion a chain of events, collecting luke, taking the droids, meeting up with han solo, and rescuing leia, while at the same time providing back story for the characters. his death motivated the rest of the main cast.
Bryan cranstons death changed nothing for the plot, his "discovery" of the strange tremors, didn't change anything, and it was quickly forgotten about within minutes of his death. His story arc, his wife, the disaster 15 years earlier changed nothing, which leads me to question why they included it if it was going to go nowhere.
Now with movies like the avengers sure, the film is flawed, but it accomplished what it set out to do, it found a way to combine all the characters and came up with a credible if boring threat, to unite them.
Godzilla had none of that, there was no combining of strengths, no moral of the story (at first i thought it was gonna be a stab at nuclear power, and nuclear bombs, but it ended up praising them to some degree)
I didnt need a strong character line up, but i wanted to see more human interactions, a great way to do this movie, would have been to constantly shift between several different families and their lives, and how they are affected by the devastation,
The sheer diversity would have saved this film, the action alone while really really really fucking awesome, was not enough.
At least it HAD the good action, this film isn't a bad film, just a lacking film. it lacked depth, the characters who HAD motivation still had no sense of threat, because we knew they were gonna survive, thats why a constantly changing perspective would have left us guessing. A much more human story.
#17 - Ken M (05/18/2014) [-]
The reason the missing son was included was to emphasize the whole "wrong place wrong time" thing you have stated in your comment. Had the kid not gone missing, Brody would not have been on the subway when the MUTO came to attack honolulu. The whole reason Bryan Cranston was there was to give Brody, again, a reason to be "at the wrong place at the wrong time". He follows his dad to the fallen reactor where the head scientist gets ahold of majorly important research the father did himself. Although i do agree that Cranston wasn't necessarily "important" after the first half hour and they could've easily made the movie revolve around him, it just wouldn't make complete sense because the muto hatchling takes a whole 15 years to mature, and by then Cranston's character is too old to be able to do half the stuff that brody did, he'd pretty much be sitting on the huge battleship with Takeshira (not sure if thats his name). It's just my opinion, I see your point though.
#8 - asheskirata (05/18/2014) [-]
First off, it's not GAWJEERA it's Gojira, his original name, you uneducated fuck, secondly, Gojira saved the entire fucking world from being at the mercy of those MUTOs, and it makes perfect sense for a large portion of the city to be leveled by THREE 100-300 METER TALL MONSTERS beating the shit out of each other.
#168 - faimbot (05/19/2014) [-]
Lol uneducated. I know what Gojira is, its how he pronounced it, he actually says GAWJEERA, for some fucking reason e said it like he was ready to cut a guys head off, it actually got laughs in the cinema, people were in hysterics. Im not complaining about the destruction, im complaining about how they call godzilla their saviour after he has levelled it.
Learn to read ffs.
#215 - faimbot (05/19/2014) [-]
How did they know that? the only people who knew were the military, or rather, one scientist who noone really listened to, so did they do an interview? did they tell the media "Btw Godzilla saved the city"?
How do you conclude from the damage done to the city, by three huge gigantic beast, that one was saving your city? or did they just call him the saviour because he happened to win?
#216 - asheskirata (05/19/2014) [-]
They called him the savior because, not only did he kill the creatures, but he didn't just turn around and start destroying everything afterwards. There was also a question mark after Savior of the City on the screen. It literally read "King of the Monsters-Savior of our City?"
#217 - faimbot (05/19/2014) [-]
the same fire breathing creature who upon arrival, drowned an entire town, levelled a city and destroyed a bridge with all their kids on it?
Its a little silly to conclude he is the saviour of their city just because he fought similar sized beasts as him. How do they know the MUTO werent the saviours?
And as for destroying them, the caption was on the stadium screen live, the thing had just gotten up, how did they know he wasnt gonna suddenly turn around and kill people?
#218 - asheskirata (05/19/2014) [-]
He didn't intend to destroy the bridge, the military was shooting at him and he tried to escape. And why would they consider the ones who were doing all the damage before Godzilla got there to be the saviors? And if he was out to destroy portions of the city, wouldn't he have been doing so on purpose during the battle?
#219 - faimbot (05/19/2014) [-]
He didnt intend? and the media knows this how? the entire world is watching these prehistoric beasts tear each other limb from limb, and then plaster godzilla as being their saviour, to all those people in the stadium, that has to be a big "fuck you" to all of them.
And why not call the MUTO saviours? they havent done anything that godzilla didnt, except die. Noone knows the story we are watching, the media certainly doesnt, i doubt they got one on one time with the admiral and the rest of the military to conclude whats going on. But still.... Saviour of our city right?
#221 - faimbot (05/19/2014) [-]
Wait hold on, because it leaves it means its the saviour? thats the reasoning people have? how do we know its not simply running away considering it got fucked up in a massive monster battle? it has to recoup, it could be back in a few weeks to kill everyone, nobody knows.
People died, entire city left in ruins i doubt the conclusion anyone can draw from a giant dinosaur-esque beast getting up, is how great and heroic he was.
Still, they caption saviour of our city, with nowhere near the information needed to conclude that. "King of the monsters - what is it and what happens now?" The entire planet has just learned they arent the top of the food chain, but at least they know a hero when their city is wiped out by one.
#223 - faimbot (05/19/2014) [-]
I did watch it, i did enjoy it, but not all of it. 12 minutes of action worth watching. yes, i counted. everything else was either uninteresting sub plots (anything involving the wife and kid) or just pointless exposition.
The entire intro had no bearing on the story, which leads me to wonder why they put it in at all, and the ending was laughably bad. Even the nuclear bomb going off had no point in the story either, considering both MUTO were dead by this point. im not even sure why it was included either.
The scene with the boy who loses his parents on the train, im not sure what that accomplished because the kid gets returned fairly quickly and its never mentioned again. oh and again, it had no bearing on the plot.
when you add together all these issues, it becomes one big issue, who the hell wrote this movie and why couldnt they create a story that didnt just lead nowhere.
Dare i say even the 1998 Godzilla had better story, plot structure and character motivation. Plots didnt just lead nowhere in that movie.
Action wise, 2014 Gzilla has it going for it, but everything else just lets the film down, and as such its pretty forgettable, i seriously doubt anyone is gonna be talking about it weeks from now, with anything other than disdain.
I wanted to enjoy the film, the trailers made it out to be so much more of an epic tale. it wasn't.

I think that they wanted to make cranston the hero but had to quit halfway through with that story with no time left to refilm the original parts. The son wasn't really important except to get rid of the eggs. And it was so obvious that the family was going to survive that i felt no attachment to them.
Long story short: they should have kept with cranston and make a story revolving around him and not someone who does nothing for 95% of the movie.

Heres how i would have done it, bryan survives his little encounter, and the military is at odds with what they should be doing about this entire mess, son decides he needs to save his family, promises his dad he will be back for him,
bryan cranston being the engineer who has mastered echolocation and various other things, works with inception dude, to create a device that will "communicate" with the beasts, so they can try and trick them to a location and destroy them but it accidentally summons godzilla.
However they realise godzilla is on their side when it begans communicating with them, they see patterns similar to the ones bryan seen during his nuclear plant meltdown but they are much more precise. he uses his data and configures his machine to respond to that specific tone, the ones the mutos use to communicate, and lure them back, something godzilla responds to aswell
The rest of the movie goes as it should, they try to nuke the beasts, unsure of what godzillas part to play is in all this, it doesnt happen, bryan cranston needs to go with his son to retrieve the nuclear bomb as bryan has to alter it, using his engineering skills, to adapt his machine to it, so they can activate the nuke and it wont attract the attention of the beasts, sort of masking it in the frequency.
Bryan gets into a fight with his son regarding not being there for his son, sentimental shit about being blamed for his wife etc. Bryan cranston dies here, when one of the babies hatch, but not before telling his son what he needs to do,
Godzilla owns the two larger beasts, but the place is now swamped with the younger ones, son activates device sends it out to sea, as all the babies start swarming after it when the device goes online, his father is on the boat with him, he is about to kill himself when a helicopter appears and saves him, and he take his dads body as the nuke explodes behind them killing the babies.
The ending remains as is, except the saviour shit

Pretty interesting plot. I think there were a lot of things they could have done differently. I felt that when Godzilla encountered the Male MUTO there should have been a 7 min fight sequence occurring. When the nuke was activated, it's implied that about a half hour passes before the army guys are sent down to diffuse the bomb. That would have been the perfect opportunity to have Godzilla, the legendary beast, take on the MUTO that we are built up to understand since the beginning of the movie. With a scene like that we would have solved the problem with 90% of the criticism toward the movie. Sure you have people complaining about dull acting, but this is a god damn Godzilla movie, it isn't supposed to be about the acting.
