Godzilla: Final Wars Review

Godzilla Final Wars

Director Ryûhei Kitamura’s Godzilla: Final Wars is more of that giant green baddy stomping around and smashing everything in sight. Familiar monsters return, as well as a new troublemaker, Monster X.

This film has one thing random that stuck out for me… UFC veteran Don Frye as Douglas Gordon! That might not be as exciting to you as it was to me, but I got a good giggle out of it. It’s probably of no surprise to you, if you read my last Godzilla review that these films aren’t really for me. I will admit that the creature design and most of battle sequences were pretty impressive, at times. After a while though, it just becomes so repetitive that I found myself wanting to fast forward, but I can stick up for it even if I personally disliked it.

I think that if you dig these kinds of films, then you surely will enjoy this one. Godzilla is brought in to protect the city against a slew of villains and the damage is plentiful, as well as the action, but it’s still just guys in suits half the time and no matter how much I want to like them, I just can’t. I respect them and appreciate them, but they just aren’t my cup of tea.

You can pick up a copy of Godzilla: Final Wars on Sony Pictures double feature blu-ray today, so you check it out, leave a comment, and let me know how you feel about it. Personally, I give it 1.5 smashed buildings out of 5.
