WTF: Shin Godzilla.

Or is it "Shin Gojira". You CAN have it both ways, especially if you need to pad out 20 minutes of monster into a 1:47 movie.

But stay until the end. Because they want you to.

Overall: No worse than many Big G movies, not as bad as some. (Yes, Gymnastics Gamera, I'm looking at you!)

If the trailer is anything to go by, there is no dialogue in the movie. I like that. Is the trailer accurate in this regard? I hate it when movie characters talk.

More talk than action. You really don't get much Big G until the 47 minute mark, then it dies down again for a while.

So the trailer is a better movie than the actual movie?

I see, it's one of those movies.
