TL;DR Review

Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters (GODZILLA 怪獣惑星 Gojira: Kaijū Wakusei) is a 2017 Japanese computer-animated science fiction kaiju film featuring Godzilla, produced by Toho Animation and animated by Polygon Pictures, in association with Netflix.

I am pleasantly surprised by Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters. Normally, full 3D CGI anime tend to be pretty mediocre to bad. The movie did a good job of keeping me engaged with its pacing. I hardly even noticed it was a fully 3D CGI film.

This is the first movie in the Godzilla 3D animated trilogy. This is not your normal Godzilla movie. Not only is Godzilla not the “good” monster, but the futuristic setting had also never been explored.

I recommend Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters to all Godzilla and kaiju fans, and even to the normies. The anime contains graphic violence naturally, as it is a Godzilla movie. Intended for young adults.

"This could be good news. With that much time, the ecosystem must have changed. Not even Godzilla..."
Martin Lazzari
" Would living organisms go through such a change, even if 10,000 years have passed? We collected and analyzed the forest's plants, and by using carbon dating, I know how much time has passed. And it looks to be within a 50-year range of 19,200 years."
