I dont know how accurately the movie repeats the original film and whether it can be called a remake or re-invented, as the puppet script, because of its pampering with the gifts of modern technology – special effects, I couldnÂt see from beginning to end. Therefore, judging the film as an independent project.
So, “Godzilla”, as I see it.
Genre – fun fiction.
Plot. In 1954, director Ishiro Honda presented his creation to the court of the whole world: an adapted history of Godzilla – a prehistoric reptile that came out on the Japanese shores to eat human flesh. The lizard was dozing for a long time at the bottom of the sea, but (presumably) in 1945 was awakened by American nuclear bombardments. The film was a huge success, not to mention the number of sequels, spin-offs and the like. However, in 1998, US film studios, feeling apparently guilty of their ancestors for the numerous eaten Japanese and the desire to earn extra money, decided to incite the monster against the peaceful inhabitants of Manhattan. Only the French, with their atomic tests, were now to blame for everything, and they put the German Roland Emmerich at the head of this Âdisgrace. On the one hand, the film Âexternally looks like something on the ending of the ÂJurassic Park 2 of 1997, on the other – it has a unique and very interesting start and a spectacular ending.
1. Humor. In my opinion the film is very funny, not rude and absolutely not vulgar, which happens very rarely in this genre.
2. Musical accompaniment is unobtrusive and melodious, which is a huge plus. I especially liked the melody at the end of the film: very touching, to match the ending.
3. The special effects made me very happy: nothing superfluous – modestly and with taste.
4. Translation (duplicated) is not bad in principle, but the voice of the actress, who voiced Audrey, is just disgusting to listen to – squeaky to impossibility. The polyphonic translation also has its drawbacks: the nickname of Victor Polotti (ÂThe Beast) sounds very brutal.
The cast was laid out to its fullest, but, as always, I liked the funniest of all – the character of the actor Hank Azaria: very charismatic and charming. However, it should be recognized that the rest of them are not far behind: for example, the French Âsuperman performed by Jean Renault, or the charming sergeant OÂNeil (Doug Savant).
Verdict: the film is a real find, and I was very lucky to find it. The picture can be viewed countless times, and it still does not bother. Well done work.
