The movie was so successful and well-received in certain foreign markets that it might have directly contributed to the second American re-imagining of the franchise, Godzilla (2014), performing poorly in these countries, both box-office wise and critically. As well, the movie received a burst of popularity among its fans or those who have been disappointed with the 2014 reboot. Nevertheless, the latter was still overall the more successful of the two, especially with movie critics. See more »
The AH-64 Apache helicopter does not have a machine gun mounted
on its "cheeks" The 30mm chain gun that it carries is located under the cockpit, on the chin of the helicopter. Also, the muzzle flash from the guns mounted on the side would interfere with the pilot and the gunner's night vision. See more »
Alright, I've had enough. Godzilla was a GREAT movie, and I'm just sick and tired of all the critics and others who view the movie as a complete disaster due to its lack of a story and other problems.
Personally, I don't care. The movie, from day one was meant to be just a big effects laden action movie. It's just for fun. I understood the story. The movie should just be viewed as a fun, blow everything up in your way movie. Don't be so hard. Sit back and enjoy.
