Godzilla (3D) (12A)


The world’s most famous monster is pitted against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

Loved it, loved it.  Thought I’d get that out of the way from the ‘git-go’! I wasn’t really expecting much from this film.  Monster, in a city, been there, seen that, blah blah blah. But it was so much better than expected.  I watched, slightly tensed througout, as the scenes unfolded, admired some of the beautifully crafted frames – stunning art in film. I appeared to be the only one laughing at certain glowing body parts though!

Godzilla seems to have quite a small role in the film.  I expected to see a lot more of him.  That said, Yep –  Godzilla gets the big thumbs up.
