Trivia

Cranial scans indicate each of Ghidorah's heads possess different levels of cognitive function and possible independent thought. The middle head is the most intelligent, acting as the alpha, while the left and right heads are more akin to its lackeys. See more »

Goofs

The concept of "Alpha of the Titans" relies on the theory of "Alphas" in wolf packs, with the Monarch scientists explicitly referencing said theory, despite it being debunked about 20 years before the film's release (by the same scientist that originally proposed it, no less!). That said, the idea could still work in terms of the Titans, since the old idea of "Alphas" can form amongst unrelated individuals forced into a pack, which is basically what is happening here (although a scientist referencing this idea straight still falls under artistic license).

Quotes

Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: Killing them would be a mistake. They'll return because of us. It was our atomic testing that awoke Gojira. Other creatures like the MUTOs. From strip-mining and seismic surveys. But these are not MONSTERS! They are animals, rising to reclaim a world that was once theirs!
Senator Williams: It almost sounds like you're protecting them, Dr. Seirazawa. As if you admire them.
Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: I admire all forms of life. Except us. If we hope to survive, we must find ways to coexist WITH TITANS. With - Gojira.

It's what Godzilla is supposed to be.
29 May 2019 | by gungygussitSee all my reviews

Not totally sure why people are coming out of seeing the film with the 'it's not what I expected' attitude.

It's Godzilla, it's based on the King of monsters fighting to keep the title (literally, but not literally...).

It's everything I loved about all the previous iterations, the raw power, the sound, the death toll, the bleak realisation that humans are so low down the food chain thier existence is almost pointless.

Absolutely spot on, good cast etc. If I had one criticism, it'd be the flamboyant disregard for the effects of radiation - they use it like fire but without the consequences of nuclear fallout :D
