After the 1998 (American) “reboot”, I was really turned off from watching anything that wasn’t a Japanese release of the series. But, last night, I was very pleasantly surprised with Godzilla (2014). I felt that it was even one of the better films of the entire series.
- The characters: Wow, far better acting and character development than one would expect.
- The story: it had one! And the way it was built was perfectly entertaining.
- The visuals: every shot was engrossing and kept drawing the viewer more and more into the story itself.
