Everything the movie should've been
31 May 2010 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

Many critics and fans will agree, the '99 American remake of Godzilla was disappointment. The movie fails in that people naturally expect a lot from a big budget monster movie. And how could they not? The movie is about a 120ft lizard after all.

But sadly the movie just failed to deliver. The director of the film traded unnecessary story and environmental preaching for what the fans really wanted: complete mayhem caused by a giant monster. Zilla was thereby lost in a sea of potential. He could've been great. He only needed a bigger, better, more bad-ass script.

Fortunately though, Zilla Jr. got everything his father never had and what every giant monster should have. Zilla Jr. was baddass! He had it all: Near-indestructible tenacity, awesome atomic breath powers, an ambiguous good/bad reputation, and most importantly, a crap load of other monsters to kick ass! I dare say that Zilla Jr. can even surpass the original Japanese Godzilla. I truly believe this and I don't care what anybody else says.

Godzilla: The Series redeemed the original source movie by being a highly imaginative series that takes all the best elements of classic monster flicks and amps them up for a 21st century. The characters and the stories are engaging and each episode, while still able to blend into a wider continuity, can stand alone in their own way (such is the style of American animated series) The direction is well done and the stories and monster battles Zilla Jr. get's himself into are quite imaginative. And if you say it's unbelievable...Well, it's a sci-fi animation series about giant monsters. 'Nuff said.

Heck, even the original Zilla Sr. managed to get redeemed in the series himself, being resurrected by aliens into a cyborg. How cool is that? If this is playing in a TV near you, watch it. If not, I seriously recommend getting the series on video.
