New Godzilla 2014 Remake Movie Delivered Great Action,Thrills & More
Warner Bros. Pictures released their new action/sci-fi flick, “Godzilla” into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out, and thought it was pretty entertaining for the most part. It delivered a lot of thrilling,action-filled scenes, and more. It stars: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn, and Bryan Cranston.
In the new flick, Plant supervisor, Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston), loses his wife in a Janjira Nuclear Plant near Tokyo after an explosion and radiation leak takes place in 1999. The event, attributed to an earthquake, results in the evacuation and quarantine of the Janjira area.
15 years later, Joe is still haunted by his wife’s unfortunate death, and is convinced that it was more than just an earthquake that caused the incident, and is determined to find out the truth. Joe eventually convinces his son, Ford , who is an explosive ordinance disposal officer, to accompany him to Janjira, where they discover no signs of radiation, and are arrested and taken to a secret facility built within the power plant’s ruins.
Shortly after their capture, a colossal winged creature breaks free from the facility, causing all kinds of chaos and mass destruction, including the eventual death of Joe. Also, before that, Godzilla made his first appearance, and he was wickedly huge. Then the U.S. Navy team is brought in to handle the situation. Ford joins them in their attempts to try and destroy the monsters.
It was explained that the winged creature is a MUTO (or Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism), an ancient creature from a much earlier time which feeds off radiation and radioactive material. As the earth’s radiation subsided it moved underground and put itself in a cryptobiotic state. It in turn, is being hunted by a much larger animal, Godzilla, that was awoken during a deep sea expedition in 1954.
Eventually, another MUTO turns up in Las Vegas after hatching, and devastates Las Vegas before heading west. And it was explained that the two creatures wanted to meet to breed. From their, the plan was on to kill all three monsters with their most powerful nuclear weapon. However, their plan went awry, causing an even greater danger to civilians in the downtown San Francisco area.
This set up a huge conclusion, where Godzilla arrived to confront the MUTO creatures, and kills them in a horrific battle to the death, saving many lives in the process. Again, I thought the movie was pretty entertaining throughout. However, it did seem a little too drawn out at times to the point where I was pretty much ready for it to be over by the completion of the 2 hour runtime. I gave the movie a solid B- grade.
