Review
In 2013, before looking into the cheesiness of 98's GODZILLA (click here). I had been pleased of the new picture crew announcing to remake the new film loyal to the old Kaiju series. Without the director Roland Emmerich on board or having the film's passable star Matthew Broderick as the lead protagonist. Indie film director Gareth Edwards is assigned to helm this year's interpretation after he made prominence in the not-so-good movie MONSTERS (click here). Unlike the pleasant display of his first feature, his new monster hit GODZILLA is proudly commendable for not having a brief deficit. Grittiness and deliberate intensity are strengthening its impact and pocketed the film to overwhelm and anticipate every Kaiju fan. In this interpretation, the titled monster was only a hero that beats the other giant monsters shown in most of the Japanese classics. While this old version we originally saw in the 1998 remake was looked exactly like a giant partial-mutated iguana.

Aaron-Taylor Johnson is never new to Hollywood when playing leading roles. He was specifically well-known in nowadays as he had a famed role in the two KICK-ASS films. I didn't see him in those two recently. The co-actors Ken Watanabe and Bryan Cranston exceeded in their supporting roles to the reach of descent. It's literally the director only selected them and they were more better to the old of its stars like the ashamed Broderick. Besides the cast and the new-found identity of the character, we have what we want is the monster battle scenes and the fascinating special effects design.

Never will I again to deplore the character's movie remake as I did back in the old version. The craze of bringing Asian pop-cultural motifs in the western cinema is busy continuing now. It will be so hard to pay your money to see the monstrous mayhem of 2014. GODZILLA is the second best movie of its year-date and all of you I wish, will have to see it.

Star rating: (10/10) Best Movie Ever
