The last summer of the 20th Century, giant living creatures called “Kaiju” and the monster-destroyer Godzilla revealed themselves to humanity. In 2048, humans admit defeat and only those who were selected by the government-controlled A.I. were allowed to board the spaceship and head to humanity's new home "Tau Cetus e". That too, ends in failure. One boarder is a young man named Haruo whose parents were killed by Godzilla. He has but one goal: return to the Earth and defeat Godzilla.
I'm a huge Godzilla fan and so I was pretty stoked to see this as a thing, and yet, after watching it, I miss the old live action ones even more. This fascination with CG styles, and Godzilla just looks ugly in this. The render of this amazing creature, not that great in this outing under the license. I did like the design of vehicles, spaceships, their technology of which was a hodge podge of different species all trapped on a single mothership. Although, I found it odd that they would wander the stars, when infact one of the lead officers of the strike force going to Earth mentions colonizing the moon and using the Earth as a funnel of resources. Why didnt they do that in the first place? The last scene of this movie, though, it was good. It had all the right emotion and feel to it.
As a longtime Godzilla fan I found this reimagining of the kaiju not quite impressive, awe-inspiring or central to the plot compared to previous screen representations. Having Godzilla appear as a naturally-formed being and not a flesh-and-blood creature made the character seem entirely different and alien to what a lot of fans know and love about him. While the plot was intriguing, it could have been handled far better than it eventually had been told. CGI Anime films I am not opposed to yet for a Godzilla movie it almost did not seem like an appropriate fit. Also the characters could have been flushed out more as it would have made the film more engrossing. Certainly could have been greater than it turned out to be.
