So was Evan's previous film MONSTERS a two hundred thousand dollar GODZILLA movie, or is GODZILLA a two hundred million rework of MONSTERS?
On the negative side, the structure is threaten the dog, threaten the kid, find implausible reason or hero to be there, stand in awe of GODZILLA, reunite the family, shuffle and repeat five times. On the positive side, this truly is original force-of-nature Godzilla remade and done with the benefit of a modern selection of top shelf talent and technology.
Bring on the sequel that dishes up the same tone, and hold off redoing those goofy Godzilla and son movies.
Cornball racist humor (lead Asian villain continuously shouting "BRRRRrrraddooooock!" every time he is thwarted), subpar Lifetime Movie Of The Week plot and acting (he has to save the orphans because love!) and sadistic violence (torture! head shots! lets get rapey!). No idea who this was meant to please, other than the star wanting to put his brother in the directors chair.
