Last year, Toho launched a Godzilla anime trilogy. The first chapter, Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, has strong premise, but sadly, not much else. What's exciting: The monsters have won. Humanity leaves with some nice aliens to find a new home. After 20 years of searching, they go back to Earth which is, thanks to relativity, tens of thousands of years later. Of COURSE, GZ is till there, somewhere. From then on, it's just a big fight between anime hardware (ships, flying bikes, mecha, etc., the things anime does effortlessly) against a musclebound notably CG Godzilla. This, more than anything, makes me give the movie a failing grade. The look of the monster just clashes with the rest of the animation, and it should be your STAR. The film does end on a doozy of a cliffhanger, but before we get there, it's equal parts technobabble and tedious explosions. Maybe Part 2 can reverse the trend, but I don't know...

Good thing they decided to keep him a nigh-unstoppable force of nature that destroys anything in his path. Add that to the fact they created spoiler, this wasn't so bad, if you overlook the CG expressions. As for the story, it's the basic revenge plot. Characters aside from the main one have next to no development, so that's a minus right there.
