Verdict: Fun Sci-fi Godzilla Movie

Story: Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters starts as we dive into the future, Godzilla has taken over the world and the human race has been driven into space, Haruo Sakaki gives us the lesson as he waits in jail after not following orders, he wants to go and fight Godzilla back on Earth, with Metphies guiding him through his choice.

Failing to find a new home, Metphies talks the higher ups to return to Earth to defeat Godzilla once and for to take back the planet with Haruo leading the charge.

Thoughts on Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters

Characters – Haruo Sakaki saw the Earth taken over by Godzilla as a young boy, he has grown up to want to defeat Godzilla learning a method that was planned before, he goes against orders to keep people alive leaving him in jail, though when they return to Earth he leads the mission against Godzila. Metphies is the religious figure on the ship, he listens to Haruo’s plan talking the commanders into returning to Earth for the battle. Yuko Tani is the young lady that has always stood by Haruo, she joins the mission on the Earth next to him. Godzilla is the king of the monster ruling Earth with a deadly method.

StoryThe story here follows the last remaining human survivors who return to Earth to fight Godzilla, who has taken over the planet. The movie takes us well into the future, the battle itself is 10,000 in the future which takes away any sort of confusion between the two different universes Godzilla is in right now. The preparation to the battle is the main focus which for the most part is good and fills the boxes you would expect to see from them, this helps show us just where the battle will take place and just what it means for the dwindling number of humans. For a Godzilla based movie this is great fun story showing us how deadly it can be.

Sci-FiThe sci-fi side of the film puts us in the future against Godzilla in a battle that puts us in the middle of a sci-fi monster movie.

SettingsThe film takes place partial in space and partial on a future Earth that has been destroyed after humans were forced to leave, the future look of the planet show how it could survive without humans being involved.

AnimationThe animation standard for this film is great quality, it plays into the modern computer version with have been used for the Resident Evil movies over the pure anime ones.

Scene of the Movie –
The battle.

That Moment That Annoyed Me The time jump is over dramatic.

Final ThoughtsThis is a fun sci-fi movie circling around Godzilla an icon of cinema, giving the opportunity to give us a bigger story without the mindless destruction the live action films give us.

Overall: Great beginning to a new Godzilla saga.
