Captain Gordon character because...he actually has a backstory with Godzilla, certain scenes had some good acting, has a good personality, can give laughs and was badass with the sword.
He's also by a martial arts fighter, so GFW is following in the same footsteps as films like The Scorpion King
and The Tooth Fairy
. Yeah, GFW really
kicked it up another notch with the acting choices!
Backstory? Lots of characters in Godzilla films have backstories, nothing special. Especially when his backstory is pretty generic and bland (and nonsensical, since he looked about 30 years old in the '60s scenes). Good acting and personality? Was that before or after all of his emotionless one-liners?
Shinichi Ozaki character because...his scenes showed some good acting, he made you actually care about the character, and his character has some good exchanges at the end with
If by good acting you mean "How badly can I rip off Keanu Reeves from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure
?", then yes.
The main villain Xilien Leader...his acting burned arrogance and cockiness, interesting that that exact quality led to his eventual downfall
His acting screamed "I'm a spoiled brat and will whine until I get exactly what I want, yet I somehow have these incredible powers. FEAR ME!!"
Yeah, no. Least threatening villain in the entire franchise.
Godzilla's release was one of the most epic scenes in the franchise with the subtle blue flash and than Gigan was nailed with the Atomic Ray and the music went perfectly with it in that scene.
...What you just described was exactly the same entrance that Godzilla has in Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla II
. However, that was a cooler entrance, because it was boosted by the Godzilla theme music. This entrance did not have that. Instead, we get some generic music that you could find just about any where.
Although the score didn't really fit with the Godzilla franchise as a whole it made the scenes feel more epic to me.
That doesn't mean anything critical-wise.
Although the monster battles were short they were also sweet because every move that happened was exciting and the final battle was great because it invovled 2 on 2 at one point as well as 1 on 2 and it was interesting how Godzilla dealt with both Monster X and Gigan at once and than did a new version of the Spiral Ray at the end to destroy Keizer Ghidorah.
1. The monster battles would have been "sweet" if they actually did something to the overall plot or atmosphere of the film. But really, all they do is pad out the film. To make the run time a little bit longer (though considering how most fights last less than a minute, that's not adding much).
2. The final battle was only two on two for about three-seconds. I wouldn't count that as a two on two fight.
3. All Godzilla did while fighting Monster X and Gigan at the same time was turn slightly to the right so Gigan hit Monster X. That's not very interesting.
4. Keizer Ghidorah was already dead at the point, so the Spiral Ray was pretty unnecessary. Looked cool, but served no purpose.
Guys, stop liking things GxG doesn't like. Because you're wrong.
True can't like something unless it's from the Showa era.
...I've said multiple times that there are plenty of Godzilla films outside of the Showa era that I love. Godzilla vs. Biollante
, Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla II
. Hell, I don't even hate the Heisei and Millennium series. The only film in the entire franchise that I hate is Godzilla: Final Wars
. Other than that, I enjoy every Godzilla film to some degree.
Awww poop here comes the six page length response from GxG....
Excuse me for being thorough with my criticisms.
