Japan is plunged into chaos upon the appearance of a giant monster.


I have been so lazy to watch any new movies or TV shows. Good thing I have good friends who force me to watch things especially if they know I'll like it. 

I like Godzilla movies. They are always fun to watch. I've watched my fair share over the years. I never got a chance to watch this one yet. 

The story is set in Japan in modern day. A weird "accident" happens at the bay which causes the Japanese "emergency" cabinet to assemble. They bicker and go to meetings to figure out what to do. During one of their meeting, a huge monster begins to attack the town. 

Now, I am a little salty with these humans. Normally I don't really care much about the people stories, but this one actually was interesting because they drove me insane. THERE ARE PEOPLE BEING KILLED DO SOMETHING!!!! SOMEONE MAKE A DECISION HERE! The movie creators did this on purpose to throw some big salt at the Japanese government from their lack of "emergency response" when the huge earthquake and tsunami hit Japan killing so many people. Honestly...the salt should be felt by the US and others. You need to react and make a decision. Due to them taking their sweet time the best moment to rid of Godzilla was gone and over. Sorry...try again folks. Now you have to deal with Godzilla in his final form. 

Now I LOVED, LOVED the fact that Godzilla had multiple forms. It was so unique and different. No spoilers here, but they were fun. The first one made me laugh SO hard, but it was my favorite form. HAHAHAHA. 

The action was awesome and I was worried about a couple of the humans. I liked them! It is rare when I like a human in these movies. They have to be special. The main guy character (Hiroki?) was fun. I loved how he just took matters into his own hands. Good on you man!

That Godzilla was scary and kicked ass. I hope they make a sequel. But who knows? 

Overall, this was fun. I loved it! Godzilla kicked ass. The main guy was a worthy adversary to Godzilla. I loved all the salt being thrown around. Darn governments taking their sweet time *grumbles* I'll give this 5 stars.
