Saw this with my 5 year old last night. He liked “Lava Godzilla”. I liked the big action scenes, it was a Toho production, slightly Westernized and with great special effects. They even had the old Godzilla music near the end when Godzilla appeared at the phalanx of the human forces.
Could it have been better? Maybe. But they did pack a decent amount of kaiju action in. And Fenway got toasted! Also Rodan was pretty cool. I would like to have seen that big Mastodon looking thing in action. All around pretty fun, I thought. The very end with the other monsters bowing down to Godzilla was beyond cheezy for me, but perfect for the 5 year old.
Was it better than the first one? The first one was more “force of nature” and I liked the Muto fights. This one was scaled up, and had Charles “The Golden Child” Dance in it. I think I’d watch it again.
