In 2017, a studio had a vision of continuing a franchise they had started in 2014 with CGI monsters the size of buildings doing monster stuff while some people ran around and yelled about there being monsters. But with Godzilla set in the current day, how could they reveal that monsters exist for a second time? The answer: set it in the past and make it a secret that monsters exist while doing the whole monsters exist plot again. Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L Jackson, John Goodman, John C Reilly, Toby Kebbell, Marc Evan Jackson, and more are all here to be separated in the first few minutes of arriving on Skull Island so that we have different parties with different goals to follow and the tensions are high. Is this very much influenced by Vietnam War movies flick a treat for the senses, or is it whatever the opposite of that would be? It’s time we ended something, once and for all – the movie isn’t too quotable so this paraphrase will have to do – right now, on Zero Credit(s).
