    ★★½

    loved when godzilla bitchslapped the one monster into the building with his tail. lots of cool shots and a couple little nods that i enjoyed.

    overall a decent break from the sort of movie i've been watching lately. not bowled over by it like some others seem to be, but it was still fun enough. i wish it didn't have so many 'disaster action movie' clichés though--for me this really weakened the film. i also feel that the 'insignificant humans' thing could have been played better and to a much greater effect.

    watch an SVU episode instead.
