Trivia

After going uncredited in the 2014 film, Godzilla's motion capture actor TJ Storm is credited for reprising the role in this film. Jason Liles, Alan Maxson, and Richard Dorton are all credited for their performance as King Ghidorah. However, they are all listed among the crew, while the cast list states that Godzilla, King Ghidorah, Mothra, and Rodan were all portrayed by themselves. See more »

Goofs

Social animals rarely, if ever, form packs with members of other species (in the case of wolves, packs are pretty much exclusively members of the same family), so the idea that all the wildly different Kaiju are forming a pack is a pretty big stretch. It's implied Ghidorah has some unique ability to make the Kaiju obey him, but the human characters are still using faulty logic when they unironically use the "pack" analogy. See more »

It's what Godzilla is supposed to be.
29 May 2019 | by gungygussitSee all my reviews

Not totally sure why people are coming out of seeing the film with the 'it's not what I expected' attitude.

It's Godzilla, it's based on the King of monsters fighting to keep the title (literally, but not literally...).

It's everything I loved about all the previous iterations, the raw power, the sound, the death toll, the bleak realisation that humans are so low down the food chain thier existence is almost pointless.

Absolutely spot on, good cast etc. If I had one criticism, it'd be the flamboyant disregard for the effects of radiation - they use it like fire but without the consequences of nuclear fallout :D
