I was all set to be unimpressed with the new Godzilla, directed by Gareth Edwards, but that was not the case, at all.
The story by David Callaham and scripted by Max Borenstein is fast-moving and exciting. Production Designer Owen Paterson is a master at science fiction and Editor Bob Ducsay knows how to build action out of Cinematographer Seamus McGarvey’s wonderful images.
Godzilla and the monsters he is pitted against are the real main characters, with Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Bryan Cranston, David Strathairn and the rest of the cast backing them up.
If you like a good popcorn thriller, then Godzilla is for you. I give it a 3+ out of 5.
