Not huge spoilers and only a quick review but if you don’t want to know anything then DON’T read on.
I went to see the new Godzilla movie today.
I have to say, I really enjoyed it!!
I’m not a fan of the original Japanese movies.
I did love the first big Hollywood outing with Matthew Broderick but even I, as a laymen, realised that it wasn’t really a Godzilla movie, it was just a monster movie.
This movie however paid homage to the original Japanese movies and went right back to what Godzilla is all about!
Instead of humans out to kill a monster wreaking havoc, it’s starts out as humans wanting to kill a monster and ending up with Godzilla saving the day.
Lots of mayhem and destruction but just for a change it’s not New York or Tokyo!!
All those Japanese movies brought right up to modern day special effects standards with the Hollywood WOW factor.
The ending is a little on the cheesy side but leaves things open for a sequel.
Think I may have to take Marjorie to see this one.
Gives me a good excuse to go again!!
