Had High Hopes For Monster Motion Picture, But Was Horrible!

This movie was not as violent as you would imagine, I am a ten year old and I never was shocked, disturbed, or slightly scared the whole movie, however it still has a good amount of DESTRUCTION! There is very little blood and it has a good message about no meddling with the environment. However, despite all of the positives, one scene of kissing mad a little uncomfortable and it lacked more battle scenes, too much talking! It bored me so much! Otherwise, it is a fine movie for kids 8 and up.

The King of the Monsters

My profile is https://www.commonsensemedia.org/users/epic-waffles I just saw this movie with two of my friends and it is straight out AWESOME. It might give kids 8 and under nightmares though, and ages 9 to 10 might just find it scary. Warning that that there are some previews in the theaters that are for scary horror movies. There is lots of violence and lots of people die however, and they say a sware and say two other bad words that parents might not find suitable. The bad words are hell and damn, and the sware that is used rarely in the movie is s**t. The only sexy stuff is when the couple kiss.

Amazing monster comeback might be too much for little kids.

This movie was amazing. But remember there still are some that could have your kids frightened. First of all the roars are VERY LOUD (with Godzilla's roar being THE LOUDEST). Also ( FEW SPOILERS) Godzilla and the MUTOs fight. While doing so, they wreck some buildings (Nobody is shown inside the building). And there are plenty of jump scenes throughout the movie. The MUTOs can be very frightening sometimes with both their appearance and violent, wrecking behavior. Two main characters die. The MUTOs also stomp on humans as if they are nothing but ants. Some scenes (including roars) can be very loud. Also two characters kiss in one scene. Two character also kiss dirty (close to having sex) briefly but are interrupted by a phone call. Two characters kiss again in the end. Now, language. The word "sh*t" is said a couple of times. "D*mn it" and "bull" is said once. On the positive side, Ford Brody is a great role model. He takes care of a kid seperated from his family (-SPOILER- the boy reunites with his family later on). He is also willing to risk his life for others. And the movie also has some messages about not to mess with nature. Just be careful about this one. Let the younger ones see Maleficent instead.

Fantastic visual representation of a true cinema god

Godzilla is finally back!! First off, the film is fantastic. The visual representation of massive monsters destroying city's is quite beautiful. The acting is very good, and the film definitely delivers heavily. Parents should know that the battle scenes can get intense at times, and the MUTO creatures will frighten very young children. With today's standard, knowing the intensity of the video games most young people play, this film should bring a very exciting and dramatic feel. The film will get emotional, and there is a suggestive make-out scene, but children wouldn't pick anything up. The human violence is limited to trapped survivors, some soldiers with blood on their face, and a very sad death scene, where visible blood is seen around a rather graphic head injury that is covered by sheets. The language in the film is very low considering what some PG-13 movies will have. If a parent is worried about suggestive sexual material, and language, there is a very quick and interrupted kissing scene. And there are about four uses of the S WORD, which is incredibly mild for a 13+. For parents worried about violence and scary images. The monsters can be frightening, and very intimidating. The destruction is very intense. There is a scene where blood is scene around a monsters damaged head, but the head is not the focus of the shot, and it takes place at night. Some sudden moments with monsters unexpectedly appearing, and war and military violence. Containing a lot of gunfire and explosions. Cities are leveled, but the most destruction is not seen on camera, and on news reports. A parent should supervise their younger children

Huge Monster Movie that Doesn't Live up to the Trailers

First of all, the CGI is incredible. The monsters and destruction and explosions are great. However, some aspects of the movie don't live up to the trailers. From the beginning to the middle, it looks like there is about to be an awesome action scene and then it just cuts the screen to some people talking. Also, I was hoping that Godzilla would be the destroyer, not the "savior" of earth. Other than that, it was okay. (1 is the least amount and 10 is the most for the following categories. Sex/Nudity - 2 - a husband and wife start to kiss passionately before being interrupted by a phone call. Alcohol/Drugs - 0 - None Action/Violence - 7 - Lots of explosions and destruction. Planes are hit out the sky, a tsunami kills many people, trains are destroyed, and buildings collapse. The last 30 min, where Godzilla fights other monsters, is really intense. Two atom bombs go off. Language - 3 - Couple of uses of "da**", "h***", and one or two of "s***". Overall, this is an okay movie if you love big action, but just be aware because the trailers made it look like a totally different movie.

Godzilla is great, but may be too intense for most kids.

Godzilla has it all, brilliant CGI, great acting, suspense, and of course, Godzilla himself! But as great as the film is, it could a bit intense sometimes for some kids. - Violence: There is a brief scene of a tsunami crashing over Hawaii (caused by Godzilla's arrival). Godzilla briefly destroys a bridge containing buses full of children (nobody is killed or hurt in any way). Godzilla and the MUTOs battle in huge clashes (there is huge battle between towards the end) Cities are destroyed by the MUTOs. There is also explosions, peril, and a few jump scare scenes. Bodies are strewn about after a MUTO attack. Monsters squash humans as they are nothing but ants. Spoiler Alert: Two minor characters die, both deaths are a bit upsetting. - Sex: Ford and Elle briefly kiss passionately-- they are interrupted by a phone call. That is just about it. - Language: sh-t is used a few times. - Drinking and Drugs: Ford and Elle drink a glass of wine in one scene. Overall, I recommend this movie for kids 10 and up. And not only is this movie thrilling and exciting, but it is perfect for all Godzilla fans.

Monster and Military Violence.

Not what I expected at all. There is a weird line between people vs. monsters and monsters vs. monsters. The story is a little uneven but sure to keep teens and preteens entertained although the themes and amount of destruction make it completely inappropriate for anyone under 8 although this is a good choice (and the best Godzilla movie so far) for 10 and up. MPAA rating: PG-13 for Intense sequences of creature violence and destruction.

This could've been so much better

The trailers for this movie were amazing, and I had godzilla as one of my most anticipated movies of the year. I'll tell you this, it was a major disappointment. The movie itself wasn't that bad, but you had to sit through about an hour of human drama before getting to the title character. And a little spoiler here, the two other monsters in the movie really took away from what I was excited for, Godzilla himself! Not a terrible movie but not what was expected. Best for 11+ because of the large scale destructive violence.

Godzilla is really the king of monsters!

This film was amazing in every way possible! From the effects to the acting to the plot. The only critique I have is that Godzilla needed more screen time. But other than that, the film was awesome! The fight scenes will have you on the edge of your seat, cheering for Godzilla to beat the MUTO's senseless. This film truly does live up to the hype.

Decent Sci-Fi monster action-thriller

With the exception of the soundtrack and special effects, there is nothing super amazing about this film. But these are very special effects, and this film should have got onto the nominee list for the 2014 Oscar for special effects, not winter soldier! I call this decent because it is, from 2/3rds of the way through, highly predictable, the humans are dull, and it is obviously trying to be the next 'Independence Day'. Still, thrilling enough, at least for the first viewing. Final Score: 5/10: Average

Hes back!

Godzilla comes back BIG! This movie is quite intense, and will most likely frighten kids! I saw it with my 7 year old brother (NOTE: He has seen Hunger games and all the HP movies, so he's used to action) and he was fine. Some language throughout. The main hero's are great, one man even risks his life many times to help others, and in the end SPOILER Godzilla comes through, and saves the city (after causing some major damage...)

Solid remake

I saw Godzilla with my dad and the story in the movie is fine, so don't believe the negetive reviews about it. Little kids will be scared by the very loud roars of the monsters in it. Besides that, their is not a ton of language but still some and the violence isn't too bad, but it is still rated pg 13 for a reason. Ford is a good role model and is trying to do the right thing in the movie and save lives so it has goodpoints. Overall 12 and up should be fine with it, unless they really dont like loud noises

It has returned.....

Fun and entertaining movie with amazing special effects and a good story. An amazing remake of the the 54' and 98's one. Some heavy violence and disaster and peril though. Best to watch in 3D!

Decent monster movie

There was really minimal mature content in this film considering how inappropriate PG-13 has been lately. Other than monsters fighting fairly non-graphically there is really nothing but buildings being destroyed and property damage. If kids wanted to see this, they should be okay, obviously depending on how they feel about monsters. 10+ should be fine

Good remake of a sci-fi clasic.

The CGI was amazing. The story was good. The acting was pretty good. I was impressed by one scene that showed soldiers praying. The movie has violence (duh) and some language (sh*t and a misuse of Jesus.). Probably the best Godzilla movie I have seen.

Aaron Taylor Johnson + Bryan Cranston + Godzilla = GODZILLA!

Aaron Taylor Johnson does an excellent job in Godzilla. Bryan Cranston is the Uncle Ben of Godzilla. The actors were extremely talented. The ending has a pretty amazing twist. I loved it. There is a lot of destruction and violence including attacks by Godzilla and two other Japanese monsters. Profanity includes "sh*t" and "hell". There is lots of kissing.

Godzilla Review

This was the best movie I've seen in 2014! It's REALLY good! It's really scary though, I don't recommend it for kids. It's not violent, just scary. There are only 4-5 swears in the entire movie, and only one inappropriate part. If you're at least 10, I would go see this right now.
