Godzilla had a rocky outing in 1998 with the Matthew Broderick starring film, so Hollywood decided to try its hand with the infamous movie monster again with a more true to origin take on the fabled beast. The result is Godzilla 2014, which opened May 16th to record breaking ticket sales. Unlike the 1998 version, this take on Godzilla tried to remain true to the classic Japanese films that made him so popular in the first place, but that may have been its undoing. While Godzilla features some radical cinematography, and too few and far between badass monster battles, its weak plot and terrible characters derail the narrative from being captivating. In fact, one could argue that the original Godzilla in dubbed form offers more story and heart than the technological advanced and english speaking Godzilla 2014.
