The first act plays out like a horror film, something that wasn’t present in every Godzilla sequel. Mothra and Ghidorah are some of the kaijus with the highest amount of appearances at this point. The last few monsters were a little bleak and something had to be done. Disregarding some puppets flawed in their animation and design, the production’s quality is as high as it’s ever been.
If, in the past, human casualties were mostly implied and rarely shown, this one pulls no punches in murdering innocent victims on screen, even when the damage is collateral. As a result, we actually care for them, as we always should have. The clever camera work, the sound effects and the editing make the various impacts of action scenes seem violent, painful.
The third act, especially, contains everything you can possibly want out of gargantuan monster wars: exploding miniatures, extreme special effects, ferocious battles, and a majestic score. The final confrontations are an epic blast. Then, things get increasingly intense. This one will be remembered for its strong visual fiber.
