Stop talking about it and show it, already! This franchise has always been about giant monster invasion, and a million other subplots. The truth is, if it was only a kaiju thing, it would get redundant really quickly. Filler comes with the territory, and, since this is a Japanese anime, you can expect layers and layers of fan material. Why isn’t there more action? What do the fans want to see?
On the other hand, this film perfectly reflects what Godzilla movies have been about for decades. Some viewers are totally going to geek out with this film, while others will be extremely disappointed. The scientific mumbo jumbo is tedious. All this talk about nano metal, genetic codes, and the whole military procedural might test your patience. We sure earn these few battle scenes!
Artistically speaking, this film and its entire trilogy are masterpieces. The image is crisp, the colors are vibrant, and the animation is exceptional. The sound design is epic, especially during combat. Godzilla looks badass, at least in the third act. Because he’s sleeping until then. This film is slow as hell, has ridiculous pacing issues, but pulls out all the stops when it finally unleashes.
