Jordan Peele makes big budget, r-rated Outer limits episodes. It is as simple as that. I love Outer limits.
I always forget that Rodan is a quite serious movie, lots of people die on screen and I accuse the goofier later guest appearances of being responsible of that. No, this is more in the tone of the original Gojira (though nowhere near as bleak) but it compensates with an ending that is just so heartachingly sad. And some really good sfx.
This is officially the first kaiju I have watched together with my daughter who turns three in august, a good choice since there isn't really any major mass destruction, mainly monsters flapping about. I had to censor the events a little, telling her that the monsters went home to their mommies when they fell into the volcano in the end but other than that she seemed to enjoy it and was shouting "No! Don't break the house! Put it back!"…
