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

Shin Godzilla is unlike just about any monster movie you've ever seen, and I don't know if that's a good thing. The newest rebirth of the famous giant monster takes a new approach to large-scale destruction: bureaucratic minutia. This feels like a state department underling's doctoral thesis that was adapted into a feature film. We get a team of different intelligent operatives talking Aaron Sorkin-level fast and trying to work through the red tape of government to address the pressing needs of a giant fire-breathing lizard. It's like 80% government bureaucratic milieu and 20% monster movie. We get treated to just about every meeting room in Japan as the majority of scenes last a whopping 10-15 seconds. Of the 20% of the monster scenes we do get are quite excellent, but like most Godzilla films we just don’t get enough. Interesting ending though.
