Can you imagine them reacting the same way to Anguirus walking around New York and bumping into things? Or a worm guy type scientist saying "That's not true. We fed him!" That would be something cool to see to lighten the mood in a Godzilla movie.
But they still killed GINO. They still treated it as just a big animal instead of a force of nature. But yes I do understand what your saying. I think it would have been better had they shot their missiles, hit him and everyone is smirking thinking it's done only for the wind to blow the smoke away and see him standing there unharmed. Now imagine the reactions and witty lines that would happen from that.
You're right. Actually, I think I just realized what typ of tone I would want in a new Godzilla movie.
Basically how they reacted to Godzilla in Godzilla 1985, but softened with comedic reactions and antics from humans, like how Animal chased the monster, heedless of the danger, and the worm guy, the only one that understands the monster, who just happens to be the guy that no one takes seriously. They kind of attempted this kind of humor with the bum in Godzilla 1985, but it just got lost in all the dark and dire situations, as well as Raymond Burr's ominous lines and screen presence. Personally, when I saw the end of Godzilla KOTM, I bought the explanation about never finding a body. The bones in the neck seemed way too thin when Godzilla was skeletonized, so I thought how cool would it have been if what we saw sink to the bottom of the harbor was just some outer carapace and not the beast's actual skeleton?
The seemingly armored nature of the monster would back that idea up.
