Godzilla D-BOX 3D Film Review

An ancient prehistoric monster is awakened by a nuclear reactor in Japan, but it isn't Godzilla. Godzilla it appears is awakened by that creatures mating call. Another monster also wakes in Nevada fed off of nuclear waste. They then all mean up in San Francisco for a monster rumble. The US Navy appears as a bumbling incompetent bunch of rabble, making some of the most useless decisions going. The main human characters I didn't care for either, with not much real acting going on. Lets face it this is all about the monsters fighting, and even that is slightly annoying, as just as they get going they cut to some crappy footage on a news report that someone is watching. You don't get to see a full on scrap until near the end. The whole movie unfortunately feels a bit slung together and they are jumping around the world just following the monsters with not much happening in between, even last years Pacific Rim was better than this.

This is the first time we have seen a movie in D-BOX, which is basically moving chairs timed to events on screen. Let me just say the chairs rescued this film! The opening nuclear reactor breach is fantastic with loads of rumbles and shakes of the chair. Would definitely recommend any large action film be seen with D-BOX!
