You don’t need to be a Godzilla fan to know Roland Emmerich’s 1998 film is a black mark on the franchise. Besides changing the design of Godzilla, it was just generally a poor movie that got dismissive reviews and barely made back its large budget in the United States.
Look: this movie is probably gonna be a hot mess. It’s Paul W.S. Anderson taking on a Capcom video game again, and we’ve just gotta hope it’s a hot mess. But, I will say this: that sword continues to look great.
It’s too good. I can’t. Animation isn’t supposed to be this rad.
