Godzilla is a fun trip down memory lane as they finally make a monster movie like the Godzilla stories of old. There are a lot of nods to the old movies from the boy in the baseball cap to the Japanese man who sees Godzilla as a hero.
The romance in this movie is between the two bug-like monsters who have been released from their dormant cocoons. They mate and make baby bug-eggs which Godzilla and the US Military must stop before the bugs hatch and kill everyone.
The story is more about Godzilla-the hero- than about the humans although the humans certainly help Godzilla with his job.
*I'm a nerd girl and LOVE old monster movies and superhero movies.*
I'd recommend you see this movie just for the special effects and nostalgia. I loved seeing Godzilla come alive again. :) Grade: B+
It's all about the movies...
