Shin Godzilla

Shin Godzilla ★★★½

This is far superior to the American Godzilla films from the past decade IMO because it explores the reality of a Godzilla appearance in modern society without focusing strictly on its affect on the relations of the main cast. Shin Godzilla still falls for some of the same trappings of these modern iterations, namely that its too talky, but at least the dialog here has a purpose in showing the bureaucratic red tape one would expect from an event like this. The script is inherently comedic from the getgo due to the sheer ridiculousness of the liaisons on display (often asking for permission between two leads in the same room), but things lose steam by the third act due to the endless discussion between the revolving cast of characters. Still, this may be the most interesting take on Gozilla we've had since the original.
