Shin Godzilla

Shin Godzilla ★★★★

The new Godzilla is here and it's a damn fine reboot, making Godzilla terrifying again, something he/she/it hasn't been since 1954 which is quite a feat and the numerous mutating incantations of the creature we know and love are awesome. It's a bit of a shame though that Hideki Anno and co uses this a blunt critique towards the stiffness of Japanese politics. It could have been made a bit more... subtle. As it is now the movie leans a bit towards black comedy at times and takes away a little of the seriousness of the whole thing. But who am I kidding, we're all here for the creature and the scenes of mass destruction and Shin Godzilla does that extremely well. There are a few scenes where the cgi of the creature becomes a bit obvious but those scenes would never have been done properly with suitmation and the levelling of Tokyo reaches new glorious heights. So yeah, the Big G is back with a vengeance and I'm getting all giddy just thinking about possible sequels.
