The long wait of our favorite giant monster of all time has finally returned to the big screen, and after seeing the film for myself, I am highly impressed. There was so much to the film, so many things I just want to talk about, but a lot of it would be majorly spoiling the film, and it was just release to the public not too long ago so I'll try to keep a lot of things to myself. Anyways how do I start this off? Well probably by saying that despite most trailers making Godzilla look straight out of the Heisei era, Godzilla was actually more Showa than Heisei. This is a very good thing because it mixes Godzilla as a whole. Godzilla is still a force of nature, but he's also just an animal. Godzilla wasn't focused on destroying humanity or anything, he was just following his current instincts which brings us to the new monster, MUTO, Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism. That's not exactly a spoiler since there were Movie clips on MUTO's identification meaning there was plenty of time before the movie for people to see that one clip. MUTO seemed to meet my expectations with a little more, a giant horrifying monster that feeds on anything radioactive. MUTO has two specified genders which are both identible, the male is the flying MUTO in which we saw in the trailers, then there's the Female who's larger than the male with no wings but also same size as Godzilla. The deal with the MUTOs is not unexpected but shows that there is a bigger threat than just Godzilla. Even though Godzilla is defined as an "Alpha Predator," but when we hear predator, we think carnivore hunting Herbivore / Omnivore. But Godzilla doesn't seem to hungry for the MUTOs, I think that Godzilla and MUTO are actually natural enemies. There's a reason why I say this, but it would be a pretty big spoiler since what I would say happens at the beginning of the movie. Despite that, Godzilla is still defined as an Alpha Predator, most likely because Godzilla and MUTO probably feed off the same food source, so MUTO to Godzilla as Godzilla to MUTO is just competition. Now for the Human cast, I'll say this here and now, if you're attached to a certain character who may or may not been on a hit television show, cut all ties to that, there is a very good reason why but again spoiler which I want to limit myself doing. Now Human Cast in general, it's a good one, I mean in Godzilla films you can't expect oscar worthy performance but you do see the troubles and heartships these characters are going through. Some people may say that this kind of takes up most of the movie, but really to me it fits, besides, what Godzilla movie didn't focus a lot on the human cast? But the human cast here seems to develop the monsters even more than just watching them wreck havoc. My only minor complaint I have with the film is I wished I seen more of Godzilla, even a little more fighting. Though with that said I do recommend people seeing this movie, you might be surprised on how you view Godzilla.
