While this movie is beautiful to look at its a little too cryptic. Its cool and weird and hypnotic but its also slow and tedious at times. I wish it was more explicit once in a while and less mysterious.
I feel like this is a really good entry point into the world of Godzilla. Like many of the films in the Millennium Era series it exists in it's own timeline and continuity so you really don't need to have seen any other Godzilla movies before. Plus, this movie also has a really fun story and great effects! A special Godzilla military defense branch and a cute little kid join forces to save Japan.
