Well, that's like, your opinion, man.
I think this movie is absolutely off the wall, but in the worst way possible. It's not very fun at all, to be honest. It's just far too long, and doesn't deliver enough of the goods. The Hollywood references are lame, and the abundance of action scenes involving the human(oid) characters is really tiresome. The motorcycle sequence is my least favorite scene in any Godzilla film ever. It's so skreeonk stupid.
You're just left wanting so
much more after seeing those scenes with the monsters. Kitamura could have saved the film by at least giving them the screen time they deserved. Maybe an overabundance of monster scenes could have at least elevated this film from shit status, even if everything else about it mostly stayed the same.
