Storyline

In 1999, the Janjira nuclear plant was mysteriously destroyed with most hands lost including supervisor Joe Brody's colleague and wife, Sandra. Years later, Joe's son, Ford, a US Navy ordnance disposal officer, must go to Japan to help his estranged father who obsessively searches for the truth of the incident. In doing so, father and son discover the disaster's secret cause on the wreck's very grounds. This enables them to witness the reawakening of a terrible threat to all of Humanity, which is made all the worse with a second secret revival elsewhere. Against this cataclysm, the only hope for the world may be Godzilla, but the challenge for the King of the Monsters will be great even as Humanity struggles to understand the destructive ally they have.

Trivia

The U.S.S. Saratoga in the movie has 88 as its hull number. That hull number has not yet been used in the real-world navy, so this is a future Saratoga. An earlier real Saratoga, hull number 60, saw active service from 1956 to 1994. The first aircraft carrier named Saratoga was built before World War II, served in that war, and was intentionally sunk, along with several other retired navy ships, in the Bikini Atoll atomic bomb test that is shown in the early minutes of the movie. A photo of that first Saratoga is shown hanging on the bulkhead (wall) in one scene aboard the movie Saratoga. See more »

Goofs

The soldiers in the film arm the nuclear warhead by using the standard two-man simultaneous key-turn method. However, unlike actual arming mechanisms the locks in the film are close enough that one man with both keys could easily arm the device. See more »

Crazy Credits

The opening credits are a montage of Monarch documents and 1950s videos. All text on these documents are blacked out except for the names cast/crew members. The montage ends with a nuclear bomb going off, which causes a white-out in which the film title appears. See more »

In a word...EPIC!
14 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wasn't going to review this film, however, after reading mostly negative reviews, I felt I needed to put in my two cents worth. I am definitely in the minority on this one. I loved this film. It captured my attention instantly and held it for the entire two hours. Sure, the plot is familiar, but anyone who expects a new plot for one of the oldest, most famous monsters ever, is nothing but kidding themselves. This is a new version of some of the old "Godzilla vs....." movies. Not similar to the 1998 film in which one monster stomps around and destroys the city. Sure, that also happens here, but not without an epic battle between Godzilla and other radioactive monsters. Yes, most reviewers are complaining that Godzilla only appears for 10 minutes in the movie. This is true, as the other monsters have more screen time, but most of the film is built on suspense, and in my opinion it works very well. There is still plenty of chaos and destruction for the action buffs. The human story (about Ford Brody and his family) is quite weak and almost non-existent. But that does not take anything away from this epic monster movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it, it is VERY entertaining. 10/10
