Shin Godzilla

Shin Godzilla ★★★★★

It seems I was saving the best for last with Anno’s filmography. 

Maybe I’m just stupid but I didn’t get the satire at all. Didn’t the government do a pretty good job in this given the circumstances? It’s hardly like Fukushima where the disaster could have been anticipated and prevented. The film’s bureaucracy had flaws, but they at least appeared to be trying their best, and when it came to mounting a response they were effective. The only big mistake was originally thinking Godzilla couldn’t move on land, and that was more the mistake of the scientists.

Anyway, I watched it simply as a semi-realistic government response to a kaiju attack, and it worked for me even without the political critique.
