Craig's Movie Reviews

I love movies. I love writing about them. Hope you like reading what I write.

20) “Godzilla (3D)”

Time to run a considerable distance away from here!

OK so this is going to be a review for a monster film isn’t it. We’ve seen them a tonne of times, with buildings falling over and people who are way too attractive looking great while the green-screened destruction happens all around them. The animator is going to give a better performance than the actors!

Actually, no. The monsters look cool, but they’re in the background. The focus is on the people. On how humanity would react to something as awful as 100 storey lizard.

The acting is pretty decent. I actually care about those getting squished, which is more than I can say for most monster flicks. In particular, Bryan Cranston owns it in his surprisingly tiny performance. Movies about people stand the test of time better than those of monsters (see “Jaws” versus “Godzilla: Final War”).

See it if you have time. Not in its terrible post-converted 3D though.
