You can call me crazy because I hated the movie but at the same time I loved it, it's like having a girlfriend, you love but sometimes you hate.
Korean has Tiger, American has Dinosaur and Japanese has Godzilla ...
First mistake, how can a creature of that size get close to the bay of Japan? The navy has sonars and constant monitoring, like they can detect whales but not monsters. (Afff) read more Second error, during the live broadcast of the broadcasters, look at the upper left corner of the TVs, there is a clock, there is a channel that was showing 0:10 local time, but in the next scene it is day and to make worse the subsequent one shows how Being 13:02. (Kkkk)
Third mistake, they shoot the creature's face but it does not pierce the eye, how can it? And to close if the bug froze the "smoke" that comes out of the ice ?.
I had to laugh at the first creature, until in a way it was cute and not scary. More or less special effects and computer graphics. Depending on the scene the animal does not walk it aquaplana, turns statue and does not move the mouth. In the past it was possible to understand why it was animatronic but nowadays the thing has evolved.
It's fire, ice, laser ... Since this monster is equipped, I have the slight impression that this monster was actually alien. When the origin of the monster is plausible, I will not go into details because it would involve many spoilers.
Positive point is the soundtrack, I liked it even more because they kept the original of the first movie. I love it.
Negative point, surely I can say that Shin Godzilla is a commercial commercial military film, with the purpose of showing the technologies and facilities as well as the military might of Japan.
Generally speaking, it's a nonsense movie, because it sins a lot in the end, but it's still an interesting movie.

    This movie is more about crisis management & politics rather than kaiju dancing & stomping around tokyo. Watch it with an understanding of japanese culture, ie inefficient bureaucracy, rigid mindset, slow decision making, seniority (senpai-ism), overly structured organization - then you'll be able to appreciate the story better. nice effects, background music & acting.. highly recommended.
