Twenty thousand years after the fall of humanity, Earth succumbed to legions of ravenous creatures who now freely roam the planet. Far away in the depths of space, the last surviving members of humanity float aimlessly in the same ship they escaped Earth with so many years ago. With the spacecraft running dangerously low on resources, the survivors' leading council must decide on their path forward: should they continue to gamble on finding another Earth-like planet to inhabit, or take to heart an anonymous essay theorizing what may be the only weakness of the "Godzilla," who forced the last remnants of humanity off their home world?

The author of the controversial essay is Haruo Sakaki, a man who witnessed the death of his parents to Godzilla at a young age, which has led him to harbor an obsessive hatred for the monster. Now, he spearheads the operation aimed at reclaiming humanity's birthright from the king of monsters and slaying him once and for all. But, alongside humanity, Earth has undergone drastic change since their departure; Godzilla and its numerous spawns may pale in comparison to the darkness lurking within the hearts of this close-knit community of survivors.

Let's skip the synopsis. The Godzilla franchise has been one of the most popular and successful Tokusatsu franchise in the world, starting from the 1954 film, which has proven to be a hit by the Japanese audience. While it has experienced falls, it is still growing strong today, with Hollywood stepping their feet into the franchise with the success of Godzilla 2014, and the masssive box office hit of the very recent Godzilla Minus One. Few years past, Netflix have also tried to enter their feet into this massive franchise... But it seems it is proven to be difficult.

Story is pretty straightforward, it is ...

"He is the punishing iron hammer for the arrogant. For the species who pronounce themselves as lords of creation, a divine avenger will pay them a visit. And so, he will..."

So, after 63 years we finally got a full animated Godzilla film. Was it worth the wait? Ehhhhh. It's hard to judge the entire story to this one based solely on this film alone since it is part of a trilogy and therefore incomplete. However, as a film on it's own its nothing terrible but it's nothing amazing either.

In the last summer of the 20th century, giant monsters began plaguing Earth and humanity is driven ...

Coming off watching select Godzilla films from the first 1954 one to Shin Godzilla, I was very interested in Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters. The plot is very unique; it’s a far step from the tried-and-true formula that Godzilla movies tend to follow. Despite this, Planet of the Monsters ended up being duller than the Japanese government trying to repel Godzilla for the nth time. There were three things that made the synopsis of this movie enticing: how Godzilla won this time, what a future Earth would look like after being dominated by Godzilla, and of course what Godzilla does during the movie. None of ...
