So, I'm still rather new to Godzilla films as a whole. I've seen a handful so far and this is the first time I've seen Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla. And I gotta say that I rather enjoyed it. It may not have the deepest plot ever, but it moved along at a good pace. There weren't many lull points in the movie so it was easier to follow from beat to beat. Most of the characters seemed rather likable, especially Tokumitsu. He was a fun character to watch throughout.
I don't have much knowledge as to the many differences between the Godzilla suits over the years as well as how emotive he can be at times, but I didn't have a problem with the suit in this movie. It was definitely aggressive throughout which I guess is different than some of the other versions I've seen. I'm sure my opinion may change as I see more films, but for right now, I liked the design. And as far as MechaGodzilla goes, I really liked his design. I've seen the first movie and I thought it was cool, but this was definitely a step up for me. Have yet to see the '93 film yet though. That will happen.
But, DEM MINIATURES! There were so many cool shots in this movie. I know its a standard in the franchise but it never ceases to amaze me the amount of detail put into these films. The shot of Mecha just waltzing through a tall building had me in awe of the amount of work that went into that take. Shots like this elevated the movie quite a bit. I'm gonna watch it again just to get a better feel of it, but my first impression is that it was a fun ride. Not the greatest Godzilla movie I've seen so far, but definitely a good one.
