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

According to Gareth Edwards, Godzilla's design is inspired by bears and Komodo dragons. In particular, his face is influenced by the heads of bears, dogs and eagles. Edwards said the eagle "has a lot of nobility. It made him feel very majestic and noble." See more »

Goofs

The atomic bomb the soldiers transport has a blast radius of 20 miles. Near the end of the film, the timer has five minutes of time remaining. The helicopter carrying Ford couldn't have traveled 20 miles in that time, nor could the boat travel that distance in that time in order to prevent the city from being hit by the blast. See more »

Quotes

Boyd: Dr. Serizawa? Jerry Boyd. Just to warn you, it's a mess. A total mess.

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 »

Anti-climatic
23 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I went to this movie to see Godzilla, and I hardly ever saw him. When I did see him, he looked clumsy and facially not as attractive as previous incarnations. That and an anti- climax spoiled the movie for me, in spite of some good 3D effects.

I was annoyed by several cuts of scenes that caused me to wonder, "what just happened??" Also, the spoof of 1950's flicks doesn't quite come off.

What will stand out in my mind will be the 3 forces of nature battling it out (briefly) oblivious to the smashed city under their feet. Maybe that will be worth it to you.
