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

When Ford fills the nest with gasoline, the camera pans in to show a golden dragon statue head, a not so subtle reference to King Ghidorah. See more »

Goofs

During the scene when LT Brody and Sgt Morales are on the bridge checking out if it is intact, they encounter the MUTO and duck down on the bridge. You get a glimpse of their M4A1 and you see that they both have Insight AN/PEQ2A laser box on top their M4's.

That unit has been discounted and would not have been issued to US armed forces since 2010. The new SOCOM block 2 has the PEQ15 laser box as a replacement. The biggest difference in the two units is that PEQ16 has a Visible Laser with IR laser and IR laser designator. While the PEQ 2 only had an IR laser and IR laser designator. This US Army has replaced all PEQ2 models with the Insight AN/PEQ15 and in case of the navy and marines it would be PEQ 16. (Dependent on units and missions) See more »

"Let them fight".
10 October 2014 | by MattBrady099See all my reviews

The story is about a a gigantic beast looking to wreak havoc on mankind - and he may not be alone.

This movie has one of the best visual effect's of the year by far, The fight scenes at the end are so epic and amazing I also cried with joy. And some critics have said the characters are boring but I didn't mind them. My favorite scene has to be the sky driving part and yeah I know it only lasted only 2 minutes but the music was scary and chilling and the cinematography was beautiful to look at. Godzilla looked awesome in the movie and the final fight at the end was so bad-ass and so much better then pacific Rim fight scenes. Godzilla's roar in this movie was loud and scary. a lot of people said Godzilla didn't do anything in this movie and I didn't know what there where talking about, Godzilla walked around a couple of times and kicked ass at the end.
