WEDNESDAY MAY 21 2014 ENTERTAINMENT 17 V1 - SUBE01Z01MA Mega-lizards entrance late, but rampage worth the wait Lady Liberty is not happy to see Godzilla return in this latest offering. (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), a decorated soldier, thinks the old man is a loon. While this father-son friction stuff is a bit of a snooze, the Godzilla-less portions are still lively enough thanks to the arrival of the creatures that prove Joe is no mad voice in the wilderness. The films monster versus MUTO smackdown in San Francisco is worth the wait. MUTO is short for Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organisms. There are only two MUTOs. One is male, the other female. Yep, you guessed it soon it will be breeding time. The unhappy couple appear to be heading by sea towards the west coast of the US. So too is Godzilla. All that really matters is what will happen when these three hit dry land. Thankfully, the extended monster v MUTO smackdown that transpires on the streets of San Francisco justifies the long wait. Anyone who has loved or admired Godzilla in any of his many guises is going to get a major rush from how the majestic mega-lizard handles the mayhem depicted here. Godzilla (M) Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston NOW he has turned 60, Godzilla is very much the elder states-monster of the modern creature-feature. Courtesy of almost 30 sequels, spin-offs and reboots, the Zilla has never lost his appetite for destruction. Nor his unlikely appeal as a screen hero. This all-new, same-old is an aggressively agreeable pile of pulp, both cagier in approach and ragier in execution than the last time Hollywood ventured here. (The 1998 offering starring Matthew Broderick went down as one of the most dull and inert monster movies of all time.) The new film proceeds very cautiously. We have to wait two-thirds of an eternity in action-blockbuster movie terms at least to get a good, long look at the star of the show and a chompin and a stompin as only he can. He wont be making his proper entrance until 40 minutes from the close by which time most viewers may have had their fill of the human characters and their bumnumbing backstories. Bryan Cranston stars as Joe, a frazzled former scientist. This bedraggled fellow is correctly convinced the world is under threat from radiationmagnified species of ill repute. Naturally, the world thinks Joe is a crazy conspiracy theorist. Even his son, Ford, By LEIGH PAATSCH see NeXT WeeKs PAPeR foR This WeeKs soluTioN ACROSS 1.
