Godzilla (2014) is full of dull characters I was told to care about, running from giant monsters I wanted to see more of.
No chemistry or love is ever established between any of the leads before I was expected to care about the potential of their demise.
The result is an emotional disconnect where I found myself literally struggling to stay awake while waiting for the next monster scene.
The film adopts a less is more style when revealing the monsters which unfortunately only serves to expose the abundance of uninteresting characters sleep walking through this film.
Whats sad is that the film itself looks fantastic. The monsters have a great sense of scale, and the adaptation of the Godzilla design maintained his menacing, chunky look from the Japanese films.
Unfortunately the lack of character development makes for an incredibly dull movie when he’s not on screen, which is the majority of the time.
