Film Review: Godzilla (2014)

Godzilla does an excellent job paying homage to the originals without attempting to be a sequel or true reboot. The best part of the film is the fact the early trailers lied to the audience, showing scenes that were replaced in the final cut, hiding the surprise that makes this a cliche “us vs. it” monster flick. It takes a while to get to consistent action, but doesn’t bore audiences with too many character back stories. It runs on the longer side, but you’ll be left wishing there were another 15 minutes.
