Many longtime Godzilla fans remember watching the episodes as children and have been silently waiting for a more recent version . The last version of Godzilla was from 1998 and starred Matthew Broderick. The 2014 version stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Ken Watanabe; and is directed by Gareth Edwards.

The movie starts off a bit slow and then increases with periodic action scenes between the monsters themselves and the monsters and the military. The huge plus in the movie was the 3D visual effects. They were really great and added value to the movie.

A good movie plot is always great but this movie had a couple of plots. It wasn’t clear if it would go in the direction to focus on the monsters fighting, the military soldier son disconnected from his father, or the nuclear engineer father still devastated from past tragedy. Either way, it was actually time well spent enjoying a slightly different take on a remake of a childhood monster crush.

If you are a die-hard Godzilla fan, an interested movie goer or just want a good time out with your teens, go see this movie. It is a great conversation starter, especially with your teens.
