Fun fun fun. I was hoping we would get the continuation of the previous film involving the black hole but no, it's completely ignored. I found a way to connect it, simple. Godzilla got sucked into the black hole and weirdly ended up in the Evil Dead franchise where Ash had to deal with it and to no one's surprise, sends the creature back to where it came from. Although they do explain Godzilla being possessed by the souls of those that were killed during the second world war, which isn't a bad idea.....but come on, look at him. He looks like a fucking deadite. It would have been perfect to make an Evil Dead spinoff with this, shame.
This has got to be my favorite version of Godzilla so far. Those simple deadite eyes really upgraded him to full "I don't give a fuck, you're all dead" mode. The destructions are fun to watch, as always.
And yeah it's no secret that Japanese films do have some weak CG but excuse them cause at times you do get some interesting shots. And hey, they will give you some good laughs cause you need them for this film.
The characters were decent, maybe it was the English dub but some of the lines or their delivery made me chuckle. So the humans worked well here. I mean human characters were never bad to me in any of the films. Either it's just good or meh just there, well expect "All Monsters Attack" where I couldn't wait for it to end, Jesus.
I'm glad we skipped the whole Mothra attacking in his first stage form, I prefer the full final form and thankfully we get that here. King Ghidorah gets its ass kicked a lot in this, no matter how many times it comes back. Godzilla showed no mercy in this.
Overall, yes yes yes. Go for it. The pacing was good, human characters did their parts well, fun destructions and explosions, some fun ideas like going inside Godzilla's mouth (so yeah, it doesn't just swallow souls), Godzilla going full super evil and looking like a deadite, etc. Like I said, excuse some weak CG and you will have a great time.
GMK for life.
