Synopsis

In the years since Godzilla's emergence resulting in the destruction of San Francisco, humanity finds itself at odds with what to do as more super species of creatures, dubbed Titans, are discovered.

Dr. Emma Russell (Vera Farmiga), a paleobiologist working for the crypto-zoological agency Monarch, believes humans and these Titans can co-exist peacefully. To do so she has developed a device called the Orca that can communicate with them; however, in the process of testing the device on a newly born Titan, she and her 14-year-old daughter Madison (Millie Bobbie Brown) are kidnapped by an eco-terrorist organization bent on using her technology to locate and traffic Titan DNA.

With the Orca now in the wrong hands, Moncarch directors Dr. Ishiro Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) and Dr. Vivienne Graham (Sally Hawkins) seek out Mark Russell (Kyle Chandler), Emma's estranged husband and Madison's father, who left the organization following their son's death in the San Francisco attack. Having co-developed the Orca, he is best suited to tracking down the device and his family.

  • 5 stars "The movie was very good to watch. Godzilla is the star of the movie. I would see this movie again."
  • 4 stars "I personally didn't care much for the film but my son Loved it and we saw it twice. I liked the monster visual effects and they had lots of monster action to keep him happy. I would recommend this to all Godzilla fans."
  • 5 stars "I've never seen a single Godzilla film, though of course I've seen stills of Godzilla and some of the rest of the crew. I LOVED this movie! Yeah, it was too long and the family drama was thin and the moralizing was a drag. But the monsters! Dear god! I felt like I did at the first Jurassic Park movie, wishing the humans would get the f off the screen and let the dinos have at it! LOVED Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, and the drop-dead fabulous King Ghidorah! The final battle between the Big Guy and Ghidorah was terrific, very satisfying. I can see why others might have panned this flick, really wouldn't be for everyone, but if you like this kind of stuff it's a must see on the big screen. Later I looked up the classic flicks--so corny! Apparently our flick here was an homage to Destroy All Monsters? Never saw that either, but the lineup and the action seem similar. At any rate, this senior citizen, uninitiated to the genre, loved the hell out of this movie."
