Shin Godzilla

Shin Godzilla ★★★★★

Hands down, the best kaiju film ever made. 

While I would never compare tragedies and am not trying to make light of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster and Tōkohu earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan, the ineptitude of the government and their inability to act is so comparable to the United States during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Having Godzilla transform and evolve as the picture went on was one of the biggest shocks and an incredible evolution of the character for modern audience. While his second form flopped around Japan, I was not convinced he was the monster I was familiar with. 

It is a shame there will not be a sequel, but I am glad this exists.
