Godzilla (2014)

Directed by: Gareth Edwards
Starring: Bryan Cranston, Aaron-Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe, David Strathairn, others.
Release date: May 15, 2014 (UAE)

It took them a good 16 years, but Hollywood has finally got it right: Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla is a massive achievement in realizing the King of Monsters for the big screen. The director takes his time in finally showing us the mean giant in his movie, but when Godzilla does finally and fully appear, do remember to pick your jaw from the floor. The movie gives the big beast the essential treatment he deserves that was severely lacking from his previous big screen outing: awe, respect and spectacle. This ensures that the new generation has a reason to enlist in the fandom of the greatest movie monster ever.
