Following in the footsteps of Hideaki Anno's Shin Godzilla was no mean feat, but this new Takashi Yamazaki film fares better than honorably. Set in a Japan in the throes of political, social and moral reconstruction, it is told from the point of view of a character consumed by his own shortcomings. It develops a fertile dialogue on the question of war, loyalty and commitment, shaken by scenes of gloriously spectacular mass destruction. More than ever the son of the atom and a prehistoric resurgence that's come to kick our asses, Godzilla shines with a thousand radioactive lights in some of the most impressive and striking cinematic bravura seen on the big screen this year. May he wreak havoc until the end of all civilization.
