Fifth about The Seventh

Godzilla (2014)

Godzilla: when summer starts, the expressions “developed character” and “rich plot” usually go down the drain, as does logic. Needless to say that such is the case here: the star of the show is supposed to be the giant creatures, so human characters are left to second plan. That’s not to say that it’s not an interesting cast (there are plenty of good names around), but all they do is run from one crisis to the next or stare at screens showing the action; as a result, they aren’t relatable. Gareth Edwards was able to make a film that is fractionally more interesting (and certainly, quite well-done technically; the CGI is quite impressive) than his genre peers, but that’s not a result of a strong story (which is the most special of all effects).
