Godzilla roared into theaters this weekend and I was more than eager to see this attempt by Americans to make the King of Monsters come to life.
I was forced into sitting through the last attempt. I'm not kidding. Someone bought my ticket and when I tried to get up and leave I was held down on both sides of my seat. Ugh. It was awful.
This time around I was very satisfied with my movie experience. A true popcorn movie that held true to the source material and even managed to get me to tear up at the end.
The plot was simple and nothing fancy and the acting good for what it was. Godzilla was a little heavier looking than I expected, but it wasn't distracting. The final monster battle was everything I hoped for.
Probably my only complaint was his roar. It was close, but lacked a little something. Still, it only bothered me because I absolutely love Toho Godzilla's roar.
So, if you love cheesy monster films or like Godzilla at all, you're more than likely gonna have fun going to see this one.
Oh, and keep an eye out for the homage to Mothra.
