Since 1988's remake, the primary question regarding any new Godzilla movie concerns its authenticity: Are we gonna get the real Godzilla? The question’s almost meaningless, considering the creature’s myriad interpretations over the past 60-plus years, but people really want reassurance they won’t be wasting time on an overlong, unsatisfying, kitschy sci-fi mess—which is, of course, what real Godzilla movies often are. So yes, Virginia: this latest reboot is a real Godzilla movie, and enjoying it will depend on how adept you are at tolerating tons of mediocre blah-blah in exchange for brief bouts of juicy monster goodness. Which, I’ve been told, is how real Godzilla fans tend to do it.
