Watched the most recent Godzilla this weekend and I have to say I was disappointed. There was a lot of lazy writing -- like let's block the entire bridge for no reason while we're trying to evacuate the city just so we can have this 'tense' scene where the hero's kid is stuck on the bridge. It was slow, I didn't really care about any of the characters, except for Godzilla himself actually and then only the tiniest bit, the action wasn't particularly tense or exciting. Even the fight between the mothra monsters and Godzilla was meh.
I did like the fact that Godzilla was there to deal with the other monsters and not a bad guy per se himself.
But all in all, if I had to pick this one or the 1998 remake with Jean Reno to sit down and watch again, it would definitely be the 1998 remake. I'd only pick the 2014 one if I needed a nap.
