Easy to laugh at it, but if you give yourself over to the experience you might feel some real emotion from this oddity. Godzilla is back and he's traveling to an island. On this island are a team of scientists, a reporter, a plan to stop world hunger, and giant insects. Godzilla's here to find his son. Like the previous effort, this is set on an island. Not my favorite setting for the city stomper, but this time it didn't detract from my enjoyment. Your enjoyment will all depend on how willing you are to see the ferocious monster as a dad. He's a reluctant father at first. A protector to his heir, but not all playful and loving. As the film progresses, he teachers his son the ways of atomic breath and even rubs him on the head to congratulate him. The film is aimed as a much younger audience, with Minilla being a constant source of slapstick humor. A tail in the face here, tumbling down there etc. The big insect monsters are pretty darn decent if unimaginative. The final scenes in the snow are really sweet, and as long as I'm still entertained, I'm willing to see a more human Godzilla.
