Got back from Godzilla....... did not see it solo, me and my bro called into work to watch it together
it was a tad bit of a let down considering how hyped I was for it.
Suffered from the same downfall that basically crippled Pacific Rim; the stuff that surrounded the monsters was just lacking and couldn't carry the movie without almost putting me to sleep.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson's best acting, is when he is getting his butt kicked. Basically the only time his character (whether its in Godzilla or Kick ***) comes to life is when he is in some sort of agony. Any other time, it feels he's a fence post struggling to put a little bass into his faux American accent.
The actual fight scenes were pretty dope and definitely had some nostalgic OG Godzilla feel to it.
When I was a youngin, I used to be pretty into the Japanese series 'Ultraman' and the pacing/side stories reminded me a lot of that; which I'm assuming is the formula for most Japanese monster movies.
All in all, because they nailed the Godzilla part of the movie and Cranston and Olson were dope, I give it a very watchable 4/8.
If it were a Capri Sun flavor, its probably a palpable Red Berry.
