I picked this movie out because it is part of trilogy on Netflix. Plain and simple. I liked the idea of three parts and once I learned it was a much more science-fiction approach to the Godzilla story, it had my attention a bit more.
Godzilla and monsters have wreaked havoc on planet Earth, and now a desperate group of people are attempting to take back their home after 20 space-bound years (20,000 earth years). Behind the behest of one supremely confident young man, it turns into a battle for survival.
Godzilla: Planet Of The Monsters is a perfectly adequate action movie. It is anime if that is a turn on or a deterrent. The dialogue is clunky but I am confident that partially has to do the translation and closed captioning.
I will be watching the remainder of this trilogy, but it won’t be at an expeditor pace.
STANKO RATING: B- (3.0/5 Stars)
