I really don’t know what to make of Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla movie. Don’t get me wrong: this, to me, without a doubt, looks like the best Godzilla movie ever made. But what does that really say? These movies are supposed to be silly, and while this film’s serious tone might inject something new and interesting into the giant lizard franchise, it ultimately comes off as the Christopher Nolan Batman to the 1998 Godzilla‘s Batman & Robin. I dunno, this could certainly be a good movie. The special effects look awesome. But it’s Godzilla, guys. Is it really possible that this will be any better than your standard disaster movie?
Godzilla comes out May 16, 2014.
