1. They threw out the history behind the kaiju, making them less powerful.
The kaiju don't necessarily need backstory to be powerful.

3. The other 50% was Godzilla just marching everywhere blasting monsters away, which IS cool, but I'd like to have seen more....
I'd say 50% martial arts, 30% bland human drama, and 20% monster action, at best.

I can't really argue with this.
Patrick Alan wrote:4. And that one scene where that mutant sacrafices himself to destroy the force field around the spaceship with the jet seemed to me like a rip off from Star Wars (The Death Star's destruction)
I think it's also ripping off of the climax to Independence Day
. Double Whammy there.
I think we share a general opinion on this film, though.
