Film REVIEW: Godzilla Minus One (2023) - ★★★★★

Updated: Jan 25

Director: Takashi Yamazaki

Writer: Takashi Yamazaki

Stars: Ryunosuke Kamiki, Minami Hamabe

Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama

Themes: Godzilla, Kaiju, Japan

Post war Japan is at its lowest point when a new crisis emerges in the form of a giant monster, baptized in the horrific power of the atomic bomb.

It is the 37th film in the Godzilla franchise.

Western critics praised its visual effects, direction, story, characters, musical score, and social commentary, and compared it favorably to recent Hollywood films.


Stewart: ★★★★★

"An excellent reimagining of the Godzilla movie - a perfect monster/disaster movie with plenty of melodrama and allegory on the war. I do still kind of feel sorry for the monster itself - maybe because it looks like a giant dog! Still this is a fantastic film worth catching at the cinema."
