Godzilla

Shin Godzilla

Toho Studios resurrects Godzilla with this 2016 reboot. The Japanese government is thrown into chaos when a rapidly mutating, nuclear-powered amphibian rises up from Tokyo Bay looking to dish out some major destruction. The giant monster action--as in most Godzilla movies--takes a backseat to the human drama. But the action that's there is impressive, and the story--about a low-level cabinet official unwittingly tasked with stopping this creature before the U.N. opts to nuke Tokyo--is appropriately tense. Writer-director Hideaki Anno ("Neon Genesis Evangelion") offers up this modern, high-tech take on the King of Monsters. FULL REVIEW: Godzilla raids again in muscular Japanese reboot by Devin D. O’Leary (10/6/2016). 120 minutes PG-13.
