Now we alternate between the human story and the monsters’ story. Godzilla’s journey to being King of the Hill, which without argument is the movie you’re really paying to see. With today’s technology, superior CG-effects, and sophisticated storytelling, You would think these two stories would somehow cross or blend together throughout most of the film. There are a few touch points between man and titan, but for the most part, we go back-and-forth between the human and monster story.
The film’s biggest weakness comes in the final battle at Fenway Park (yes, that’s right. Not a good day to be a Red Sox fan). The final battle scene, while cool to watch, was at the same time challenging to follow. Most of the battle takes place at night, or in the rain, or with fire in the background. The camera also moves very fast and tight, so it feels like a lot of head bashing. But in the end, these little nitpicks won’t spoil a fun night of monster fights.
