As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.
A giant, reptilian monster surfaces, leaving destruction in its wake. To stop the monster (and its babies), an earthworm scientist, his reporter ex-girlfriend, and other unlikely heroes team up to save their city.
In 1933 New York, an overly ambitious movie producer coerces his cast and hired ship crew to travel to the mysterious Skull Island, where they encounter Kong, a giant ape who is immediately smitten with leading lady Ann Darrow.
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.

With the defeat of the MUTOs the city lights immediately begin to switch back on. Items affected by EMP will not switch themselves back on as they will either need to be repaired, replaced or reset depending upon the design and level of protection. The electrical grid would have to be checked and restarted in stages from the Power generators or furthest affected distribution center outwards, especially given the enormous physical damage in the area.

Dr. Serizawa? Jerry Boyd. I'm warning you, it's a mess. It's just a total mess. Monarch set me in this morning. Took a look around but I told them we need you.

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 »
One part disaster movie, one part drama, one part monster movie... Godzilla 2014 was perhaps the perfect mix of all three. Some parts of the movie are a build up. Some parts are emotional. Some parts are pure raw awe inspiring visuals and sounds. Speaking of, be SURE to see this thing in a theater with good audio... and I never say that. As a matter of fact I may have to go all out on my home audio now, because the sounds truly put you in this movie. The roars, the explosions, the everything. It felt real.
I will have to say while I enjoyed the acting (I can see how Bryan Cranston made such waves lately) and the place the director made you look internally while viewing (I found myself analyzing my relationship with my family, my job, my country), my favorite parts were definitely when Godzilla showed up in full view. Wow! It was so well done, and somehow stayed true to the many iterations of Godzilla and the many generations of Godzilla fans. It truly is a hair raising, visceral experience to see Godzilla in such a believable way. I just loved that.
And to the director, I saw your 2010 Monsters and was very impressed. When I heard you were doing Godzilla, I had very high hopes. I thank you and everybody who put you in the driver's seat to make this thing happen. My 7 year old son, another huge Godzilla fan, thanks you too. You did it man, you really did.
