After watching the new movie Godzilla («Godzilla” in domestic box office) comes the understanding that the tape of the same name in 1998 by Roland Emmerich is not so bad. Yes, it was a lot of nonsense, direct borrowing from the “Jurassic Park” and dismissive attitude to the Japanese original.But the movie was dynamic, cartoon character Jean Reno unsuccessfully amused spectators. But the current interpretation of the legend is almost devoid of merit.
The plot originated long before the arrival of Godzilla. Drama unfolding on the screen in the performance engineer Brian “Heisenberg” Cranston, working at a nuclear power plant in Japan.During an earthquake killed his wife (also an employee station), and of the buildings destroyed.Power is being encircled territory and do not let strangers there under the pretext of radioactive contamination. Even after fifteen years engineer obsessed with a desire to know the true causes of the accident, and his son (played by Aaron “Kick-Ass” Taylor-Johnson) lives in San Francisco with his wife and child.
The first forty minutes authors stranglehold cling to the topic of family relationships. Cranston character can not forget about the loss, suffering and getting into trouble. His son believes that it is time to move forward, forget everything, but still follows his father. It does not feel tension, no anticipation of the coming apocalypse, but there is a desire to rewind this tyagomotinu directly to the final.
Gradually happening discern the outlines of the series Call of Duty. In the sense that the action jumps from one location to another without worrying about binding events. Monsters paced or across the globe, for some reason, the tower collapses, screaming loudly and disappear until the next performance. People trying unsuccessfully to figure out how to kill them. Scenes are broken, the total failure is continuing, and here we are in another part of the world, to witness the new destruction.Boring.
Float to the surface strangeness, passing into idiocy. Monsters here “feed radiation.” They reveal warheads as coconuts and suck “juice”. Approaching the storage of nuclear waste military did not notice that half the facility destroyed and nearby walks giant monster. A secret organization devoted to the study of monsters fifty years, unable to offer anything. Scientist Ken Watanabe played almost all the time pointedly silent and no less pointedly looking at others.
Military most screen time depict violent activities, go somewhere under the pompous music and defiantly check readiness for battle machines. The latter is particularly amused because the only enemies here are monsters titanic size, and that atomic bombs are not taken. People in the film does not affect the global events and serve only as a background for the massacre of prehistoric monsters.
But for some reason people dedicated almost the entire movie, as they have somewhere to flee in terror or repeatedly waiting for the coming of something terrible. At the same time, there are no bright characters, and no characters that can cause even a little empathy. The authors then switched to one character, then another, then a third, then a school bus, then a faceless crowd. Yes, we show the catastrophe, but sympathize with humanity as a whole does not work.
Battles monsters in a two-hour movie exactly two. And the first battle is shown briefly in the form of television programming. All this is reminiscent of the film “Cloverfield”, but there was a profitable concept of “amateur photography.” Here the authors demonstrate the habit spectacular scene from deliberately awkward angles just annoying.
The final fight looks more or less effectively, thanks to Godzilla, his enemies and destroy metropolis.But woe to you if you’ve seen the movie before ” Pacific abroad . “ Butting monsters in “Godzilla” cause only sorry for impoverished fantasy director.
“Godzilla” wants to seem bleak film that people – not the king of nature. Alas, this is prevented inexcusable for serious miscalculations tape and stupidity. Some moments are tight and have no meaning, others – if copied from a third-thrash. The existence of many characters pointless as their actions. Yes, Godzilla and other monsters painted wonderful. But even they, and a couple of spectacular scenes unable to outweigh the disadvantages of the picture.
