The latest “Godzilla” is entertaining. Instead of just one monster, it has three. Godzilla is there, of course, but he is also joined by two monsters called mutos. Unfortunately, Godzilla does not get nearly as much screen time as he deserves. Most of the movie is about Ford Brody (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), an army officer on leave who is trying to protect
San Francisco and his family.
The US Navy wants to use a nuclear warhead to destroy the mutos and Godzilla in one fell swoop. They ignore the warnings of Dr. Ichiro Serizawa (Ken Watanabe), who has proof that the mutos feed off of nuclear energy. The original script called for the Marine Corps, but they declined to participate after reading the script, and it is little wonder why, as the Navy looks extremely incompetent.
