Shin Godzilla

Shin Godzilla ★★★½

You'll learn more about Japanese government, red tape and bureaucracy than you ever felt you wanted. But, that top down approach to the film and how Japan rallies to stop Godzilla is what really makes this work.

When threatened with another nuclear disaster, we see the pain and frustration within every generation represented in the governing staff. There's a pride and legacy worth fighting for, but a resignation that the nation may have to start from scratch again.

Godzilla itself proves to be a formidable foe, more looming presence than actual character.
