In 1999, the Janjira nuclear plant was mysteriously destroyed with most hands lost including supervisor Joe Brody's colleague and wife, Sandra. Years later, Joe's son, Ford, a US Navy ordnance disposal officer, must go to Japan to help his estranged father who obsessively searches for the truth of the incident. In doing so, father and son discover the disaster's secret cause on the wreck's very grounds. This enables them to witness the reawakening of a terrible threat to all of Humanity, which is made all the worse with a second secret revival elsewhere. Against this cataclysm, the only hope for the world may be Godzilla, but the challenge for the King of the Monsters will be great even as Humanity struggles to understand the destructive ally they have.

Godzilla is the first truly joyous popcorn action movie I have seen this week so far. I did not want to get up in fear of missing something, I kept forgetting I could pause the movie. Sure Godzilla was not the star of his own movie and it works for me. He is a bit player that stands out and is almost as good looking as Elizabeth Olsen.
So many people out there bashed this movie for many things including to say this was not much better than the 1998 flick. I say they are wrong! Godzilla did not lose his touch in this movie at all.What you don't like that he is the HERO? So you did not watch all fan-beloved, kid-friendly G films? What is wrong with you Godzilla is a Hero! And this feels like a disaster movie... well yeah that is what makes Godzilla movies fun to watch the way he and his battle mate don't care what town they are destroying while the duke it out.
