You would think that after the last Godzilla movie; the one introducing Mechagodzilla that was too fond of dialog and backstory for its own good, the producers would get a hint. Delaying the monster battles this much and spending time on secondary subplot is easy on the budget but rough on the fans. Still, a lot of effort was put on miniatures, costumes and various visual trinkets.
It’s on a metallic backdrop of some underground layer that we once again spend most of our time. The spy film influences have been damaging the franchise, lately, when revealed to be nothing but badly concealed time-stretcher. You'll have to wait until the last fifth of the feature for a legit monster fight. The odd pacing doesn't make them great either, but the effects are up to par.
Although it contains a little bit of everything cool about the series, this 15th installment feels generally tired. There is much going on but nothing we really care to see or wait for. With its messy plot, its complicated villains, and the many awkward moments the budget restraints create, this is one of the weaker entries. It sadly makes nothing of its interesting premise.
