Godzilla – Film Review

I found out last week that Odeon now do Bargain Tuesdays too, and I thought it was just Cineworld. Perfect when you can’t make Orange Wednesdays – why does everything seem to happen on wednesday?

So this week Alex and I treated ourselves to a date night at the cinema. There was no debate in which film we wanted to see. Godzilla won hands down!

I know we’re a little late to the party but we were a little disappointed there was only one 3D showing which we couldn’t make as both at work 🙁 but still eager to go see this new blockbuster we headed to Holloway to watch the 2D showing.

We got there just in time. Alex’s timing – standard! But actually it’s not that bad when the film hasn’t just come out. We still caught the trailers, and got some good seats at the back of the small screen with no-one blocking our view (Being short sometimes has its disadvantages!).

A quick story line overview: Set in the summer of 2014, Godzilla rises to restore balance on earth. Us humans try everything to save our world, but we’re pretty much defenseless.

The trailer is below for you all to get a preview:

The film was fantastic! I could imagine the effects in 3D being amazing right from the beginning. Alex’s mum did tell us she wasn’t too bothered about the 3D effects, but I think she was trying to make us feel better for missing out.

The CGI was some of the best! The way Godzilla was placed in the city, the monstrosity caused and many other moments made you able to imagine you actually being there.

The acting was really good too. The reaction and terror on peoples’ faces you could feel just from watching. I thought Aaron-Taylor Johnson really did his part justice – great acting from him. A fantastic step up from Kick Ass 2!

I think the fact it was based in the summer of 2014 makes you think what if that’s what’s to come?

Overall an absolutely amazing film, definitely worth watching. Huge thumbs up from me.

If you haven’t already seen it, I’d get your bum moving. It might not be in the cinemas much longer! you wouldn’t want to miss out!
