Godzilla (2014) Book Cover Godzilla (2014)

Starring: Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen
Director: Gareth Edwards

Gareth Edwards directed the movie Monsters, in iwe really did not see much of the fore mentioned monsters, just passing glimpses. The same is true to a degree for Godzilla as we do not see him, only flashes of his backs scales until we really need to.This though is good it ramps up the tension, all the monster cries we hear and ground shaking experinced on screen adds to the mystery of this monster. However to call him a monster would be wrong- watch the movie and judge this for yourself.

It is a shame Bryan Cranston is not in the movie more, his grief stricken and slightly obsessive character was a intersting side to the plot. Elizabeth Olsen was a refreshing female lead, she could do with more screen time, as i really enjoyed her interaction with her husband Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). Aaron certainly added on the muscle for the role of Ford and he plays the two sides if his character with ease both military man and family man. It was refreshing to see him away from the role of Kick-Ass which i am more used to. This movie was released in the first wave if summer blockbusters, and starts the ball rolling well for a summer of great movies.
