Tells tall tales
Love how clumsy everyone is. Both our heroes and the monster are constantly tripping over themselves. The pay off to this in the final stand off is perfect. All this falling down makes everything feel more grounded, more human. But it also I think speaks to this idea of the monster originating as an accident, an unforeseen consequence of pure negligence, itself born of a staggering thoughtlessness on the part of the US, a profound lack of care for what it does to the countries it occupies.
