Godzilla Movie Review HeroClix WorldThe dramatic performances by the cast really helped to create as realistic a world as you can have in a giant monster movie. Cranston gives another magnificent performance. He is passionate and sympathetic and really brings the credibility to the film. Arron Taylor Johnson is compelling enough as Ford.  Although at times I felt he lacked emotion considering the magnitude of the situation. Elizabeth Olsen displays powerful acting chops as Ellie. She may have limited screen time, but she wastes none of it; Olsen gives a dramatic performance, second only to Cranston’s.  

Too often, remakes of a popular franchise suffer from filmmakers modifications. Typically resulting in something utterly unrecognizable and equally unsatisfying (the awful 1998 film of the same title comes to mind). Thankfully, director Gareth Edwards knows to keep Godzilla true to form; radioactive blue flame and all.

This movie was better then I expected. And that was because I went to watch this with low expectations only to be blown away. Yes there are a few problems with the story line and yes they focused way to much on the human characters, just like trasformers, it was stiol a good movie with several nice nods to the orginal godzilla series like mothra and Dr. Serizawa.

Godzilla 2014 was a piece of garbage. Everytime the fights where getting good it just cut back to the crappy human storyline! Godzilla had like 10 minutes on the screen. The older godzilla movies where better.

How exactly were you "duped" into seeing Godzilla or any movie for that matter. Did you expect a movie based on the concept of a giant lizard rampaging through cities to a redeeming story beyond entertainment value?

Anyway, for me the movie way a hit. It nailed the concept and treated its narrative as serious as possible.

Very Entertaining!

In my opinion anyone who is just interested in big budget movies with cool CGI that have nothing redeeming in the way of a story or have no story at all should just buy and watch the cool CGIs and perdictable stories of video games. Then they can watch and be impressed over and over in their own homes and the rest of us won't have to be duped by big budgetvideo games promoted as movies.

In my opinon, anyone who came away from this movie unhappy, did not want to see a big budget Godzilla film.

This was the worst movie I've seen in a long time. All the worst super-hero movies and the Matt Broderick version of Godzilla combined wasn't as inane and boring as this movie. Horrible!
