Finally, 10 days after the release of Godzilla 2014, I got a change to watch the movie along with a friend. We went to the theatre, imagining Godzilla killing people, destroying an entire city and sending the human civilization back in the Stone Age. That’s why we call him a MONSTER.
Once the movie started, it was a lot confusing for us to understand what is actually going on until we saw that giant insect like creature generating magnetic pulse, consuming Nuclear Reactors to strengthen herself.
The Giant insect along with another giant male insect which was later found during the movie in Nevada, travels around in search of food and they find it in California’s Nuclear Waste Repository.
In this scenario, the Godzilla or the Gojira was in chase of these two monsters. He was introduced after the Interval, but his entry was breath taking. I heard Chinese people didn’t like this version of Godzilla since they think he is too fat.
But, according to my opinion, This was the best Godzilla I have ever seen. In all this confusion, Americans try to kill the Godzilla with their weapon power, but it was just like Mosquito bites for him. That’s what my friend was saying.
The fact is, Godzilla was trying to help humans by chasing and killing both the other creatures. He was shown swimming along with marines in the Sea. The two creatures lay their eggs in the heart of the city which was later destroyed by Ford, the main character in the movie who was an Army guy, specialist in defusing bombs. This made the mother creature angry and the moment she was about to kill him, Godzilla steps in and save his Life.
The best part was the Godzilla throwing Blue flames from his mouth and it was something really cool.
After killing the Monsters, Godzilla was so exhausted that he falls down pretending to be dead. But later he again wakes up and we thought, OK! Now it’s the time when Godzilla will kill and eat the people and destroys the city, but what happened next changed my entire thought and views about him.
He wakes up and quietly walks out of the city, deep into the ocean. According to the Television news channels, he was titled as “Godzilla, the saviour of the City”.
As shown in trailer, there was no Statue of Liberty destruction scene in the movie.
The aim behind writing this article was not to give you a review of the movie, whether it’s good, average or bad. Of course, it is an awesome movie and you should definitely watch it. But all I wanted to tell is how a creature or a monster, that’s what we call it can save the entire human population of a city. He destroyed a few buildings though, but again he cannot be blamed for his size.
We judge things just by seeing it, Oh! Look, that’s a Godzilla, he looks so ridiculous. Let’s fire at him and kill him. The fact is, we don’t see the internal intentions of someone and derive our opinions just by the external appearance. And, I’am not talking about the Godzilla here, it is an imaginary creature. I am talking about US. We are the once who should be called as Monsters. Better look deep inside someone’s heart rather than looking at the face.
If a creature like Godzilla can fight for humans, Can’t we fight for each other? So, stop calling him a monster. Monsters don’t just walk out of your city like that.
This movie really taught me something today and I am glad we have such people in this world who works 24-7 just to entertain us with their awesome creations. Thanks to each and every Film Maker out there.
