  MOVIE POSTERGODZILLA, 2014
Movie Reviews

Director: Gareth Edwards

Stars: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston

Review by Matthew Toffolo

SYNOPSIS:

The world's most famous monster is pitted against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity's scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

REVIEW:

The first question you ask yourself when leaving the cinemas after watching this film is what was Godzilla's motivation?

There's a little humor with that question, but it's the truth. Godzilla does something that leaves you scratching your head. Did he do it for the humans? For himself? Or for another reason?

Throughout this film I was kind of rooting for the monsters. We humans are a narcissistic bunch -we assume that his planet is ours and our only and no one else is supposed to be at the top of the food chain. So we call these creatures "monsters" even though all they are really attempting to do is pro-create, something all animals attempt to do. Is it the monster's fault that all of these humans and their creations are in the way of their first instincts? We humans have to get over ourselves.

Godzilla is a movie made in parts as it attempts to give each core audience member something they want. For a certain audience, all they want is monster fights and special effects. And they get that in droves, especially in the 3rd act. For another audience, all they really want is a good story, something that lacks in these blockbuster types of films. And we get some of that, but only in the first 45 minutes. Someone dies at that mark very expectantly and they move onwards to the blowing up buildings and monster fight stuff. There is some sort of plot happening in the movies' 2nd half, but there really wasn't much of one.

Godzilla is not much of a film in this writer's point of view - but it's not awful. All I want to know is what Godzilla's motivation was. And because he can't talk, I can't get the only answer I want.

It was fun to see Bryan Cranston in this type of film though. It was almost like he didn't fit. And the most impactful moment in his character arc was given away in one of the film's promotional trailers. So what's that all about?
