I'm about half way through this. It's so badso far I've had to watch in twenty minute segments.
I believe I have every Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, Gamera film tho I've seen only a small fraction of them. Shortcomings of these films include lack of continuity film to film, boring humans less the " monsters " segments , juvenile POV in some and lack of imaginative mayhem in the action sequences.
Theb2014 Godilla I did not like on first viewewing , not enough big g, but I thought well of it second time thru...had some fantasy/edginess and OK story.
Have yet to see Shin Godzilla. This 2019 is supposed to be a sequel to the 2014 film.
Starts off crazy with the information that Godzilla and other big monsters have been locked up in various places for a long time. Just how this came about is anyone's guess. The purpose is to study them to see if they can be somehow useful
Things get kablooey when enviornmental commandos attack these locations to free the big guys to bring balance to a planet ravaged by humans even tho many people will die in theprocess.
So Godzilla gets loose and now the good people of earth want answers to why world governments have kept a lid on the project.
Film's storyline can be broken into two areas : people talking about what to do and the monsters on a rampage.
The people segments are as bad as can be : crap dialogue, zero tension, poor casting and acting with the plot coming down to mom , or will it be daughter,saves the world.
The monsters on the loose parts ( and they are really big ) is also a failure without any real feel for the individual participants. Mostly it is an attempt to present a bigger is better and badder appeal. The battle looks to be Mothra and Godzilla against all comers. Once Kong on Skull Island got going the action sequences were very good. So far there have been two brief moments of interest.
The world seems incapable of bringing the creatures down tho all of them had been captured and contained before.
At this point I'm bored. 1/10 big and bads
