You're comparing Final Wars with some of the best movies in the G-franchise. That's hardly a fair comparison. Consider the characters in GRA, DAM, or SoG. They are just as lackluster as the human characters in GFW. The movie was on par (IMO) with characters, in relation to the ENTIRE Godzilla series.
A. Son Of Godzilla
? Really? SoG has the best well rounded cast out of any of the Godzilla films. Those characters are amazing.
B. I really don't care if it's not a fair comparison. Destroyer here is saying that the characters in GFW are interesting, and that characters in other Godzilla films are dull. When someone makes a statement like that, of course I'm going to turn to the Godzilla films with the best examples of great characters, like Mothra vs. Godzilla
, Son Of Godzilla
, Terror Of MechaGodzilla
and Ebirah, Horror Of The Deep
I didn't say ALL the films.
Then what films were you talking about? Really, if you think that the characters in GFW are interesting (:roll:), then I'd like to know which Godzilla films you think have dull characters. That should be interesting to read.
I liked their characters, they had this "cool" feeling.
...That's not an explanation. Being "cool" does not make characters interesting. As a matter of fact, saying "The characters are cool" is just another way of saying "The characters are interesting". So you still haven't explained yourself by saying that they're "cool".
(Not to mention that they're not powerless like the rest.)
So what? It doesn't matter if they have powers or not. Having powers does not make a character interesting. I would still gladly take Goro Maki from Son Of Godzilla
, who had no powers, over Ozaki any day.
It's hard not to root for these people.
I found it incredibly easy to not root for them. I had no reason to care for these people, because they weren't relatable or interesting characters.
They are LIKABLE characters, and not dull.
Seriously, stop doing this. You've said this more than once, with no support for it, and we've rebuked it more than once. The characters in GFW are uninteresting, uninvesting, unrelatable and therefore dull. We have no reason to care about what happens to these characters, no emotional ties to them and worst of all, they're basically just rip-offs from other film characters, especially Ozaki (*cough*Neo*cough*).
Sure, MONSTER ZERO's humans were of course better, but FW's humans were hard not to like.
The only somewhat likable character in GFW was Captain Gordon, but he's likable for all the wrong reasons.
