Probably the world’s grizzliest monster, Godzilla will take on the big screen again in Godzilla: Resurgence, thanks to Toho Co., Ltd., the company that produce the original Godzilla movie.
Godzilla: Resurgence is the 31st movie in the franchise, and the directors, Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi, made sure that the audience will be terrified of the monster. The new Godzilla stands 389 feet tall and is comparatively bigger than that that in the last Godzilla movie, which stood about 354 feet tall. And because of its staggering size, the monster appeared more monstrous and terrifying compared with the other Godzilla films.
Godzilla: Resurgence is set in Japan, and the time period is the present. The monster appears for the first time in the country, where it first attacked an abandoned yacht in Tokyo Bay, causing the collapse of the Aqua-line. Seeing what happened, Japan’s Deputy Chief Yaguchi greatly thinks that it might have been a living creature which has destroyed the yacht and the Aqua-line. It was not long until the country is plague by an unknown and terrifying creature who is destroying the city while killing people along the way. Japan’s government pooled out all it resources, calling all the scientists and scholars who are tasked of identifying the monster. The monster was named Godzilla, and people discovered that the monster’s power comes from nuclear fission, making it impossible for them to destroy it.
Godzilla: Resurgence received positive reviews from some of its viewers, as they noticed how the movie indicated the original story and showing Godzilla as a very terrifying monster. Overall, the film would appeal to the Godzilla fans who are craving for a darker and scarier version of the monster. The movie is overwhelmingly frightening compared with the other movies since 1954. The creators of the movie made sure of it. The movie boasts of references to the original film but without spoiling the most chilling and surprising events in the story.
Some reviewers were positively surprised with the film. They greatly think that it is only apt that the film should be a box-office hit. Toho did a great job with Godzilla: Resurgence and some fans are already looking forward to the other Godzilla films that could be possibly made in the future. Previous reports stated that the movie has already earned 3 billion yen and the number is still going up. Clearly, the directors of the movie succeeded in bringing to the people a monster that is fully capable of destroying a government that incompetent and corrupt.
The movie is still slated to be released in other countries.
