Okay, so what’s good about Godzilla is that it is a Godzilla movie. It’s not trying to reinvent the wheel but it does put all the pieces together in the correct order. It also delivers a number of stunning set-pieces along the way, including a dazzling HALO jump to Ligeti’s Requiem, and director Gareth Edwards retains the visual sense that made Monsters (2010) such a treat. I watched it in 3D but can’t see that it matters either way.
It’s a good Godzilla movie and a good time in the cinema.
