Film Review: ‘Shin Godzilla’

29 September 2016 5:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Original Gangsta Lizard gets a largely satisfying reboot in “Shin Godzilla,” a surprisingly clever monster mash best described as the “Batman Begins” of Zilla Thrillers. Co-directors Hideaki Anno (the cult-fave “Evangelion” franchise) and Shinji Ishihara (“Attack on Titan”), working from Anno’s genre-respectful yet realpolitik-savvy screenplay, draw basic elements from Ishiro Honda’s original 1954 “Gojira” and its many follow-ups — to the point of including a wink-wink, nudge-nudge reference to Goro Naki, a character who loomed large in two sequels — but update the familiar kaiju mythos to a 21st-century world where the sudden appearance of an immense, fire-breathing reptile in Japan can generate all sorts of inter-agency political wrangling, revive terribly unpleasant memories of the country’s militaristic past, and really, really wreak havoc on the value of the yen in global monetary markets.

In short, Anno and Ishihara operate according to a classic sci-fi game plan: This couldn’t happen. »
