Review: Godzilla

05 Jan 15

Why So Serious?

Godzilla has all the qualities a summer blockbluster needs. Stunning CGI, fantastic action sequences, and an epic, climatic battle. But Godzilla stumbles in that it takes itself way too seriously, sucking the fun right out of what should be a really fun film, it's about a giant lizard for goodness sake. Also the heart of this film seems to have been ripped out, as you don't really seem to care about the human characters in the end. Beautiful looking film, but lacking fun and heart, the key ingredients of a brilliant summer blockbuster.
