Sue and I went to the premiere of the rehashed Sci-fi flick tonight at WB Movies 14. If you go, go all the way...get your butt in the 3D theatre with the D-Box Motion seats. It totally added to the whole experience.
And if you think Brian Cranston is the star of the show, think again. Godzilla, just like in the original from 1954, steals the show.
And as a bonus in the flick, the spiny backed ocean lizard with a bad case of beer breath gets to do battle with not one, but 2 bug-like creatures called MUTOS (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organisms).
At times the flick is laugh-out-loud funny when it doesn't mean to be, but overall, Godzilla is a pretty decent thrill ride. Think Monday Night Raw with a few nukes thrown in for good measure.
I still prefer the badly dubbed Japanese original, but this new take on a classic holds it own.
Paying homage to the orginal, I'll give the new Godzilla 3 out of 5 rubber suits. :)
