<Review by: Sailesh Ghelani>
Previous Godzilla remakes have all been pretty predictable but moderately enjoyable. This new interpretation of Godzilla goes back to some interesting roots and gives us a new spin on the “30-stories high” monster who faces off against some mutant parasites.
Here’s my review of the film:
There’s an interesting ad at the beginning of the DVD for the Ultra Violet Cloud, which is an interesting service that offers free, cloud-based storage for users to get licensed home entertainment content to stream and download on multiple platforms and devices.
1) A Whole New Level of Destruction
The filmmakers of Godzilla talk about filming the disaster and destruction scenes. Since we’re all used to real life natural disasters they used real locations instead of just CGI to make the scenes more believable. And contrary to popular belief, destruction on film isn’t easy to achieve.
2) Ancient Enemy: The M.U.T.O.s
Godzilla faces off with mutated parasites called M.U.T.O.s (Massic Unidentified Terrestrial Organism) in the new film instead of just battling human tanks and folly!
The M.U.T.O.s form found inspiration in stealth bombers. The filmmakers go into the process of creating a background for them with the nuclear connection. They also show you what went on in the sound studio to come up with the unique M.U.T.O. voices. This feature is about six minutes in duration.
The DVD has 5.1 audio in Hindi if you need it.
