The narrative has nearly enough cohesion to work, but to no avail. The CGI, however, is magnificent (probably the only thing in this film that is).
What then can be said of the new Godzilla? It feels longer than it is, the acting is tepid, the escalation of events doesn’t grab us, and besides that, it’s a friggin’ monster movie without a future in today’s sci-fi collective consciousness since it lacks the reworking to give it new life.
I’d rather be watching Godzilla vs. Megalon on MST3K than this.
