Synopsis

In the year 2048, the human race is forced to leave Earth after decades of losing against Godzilla and other giant monsters. They take a twenty-year journey to another planet called Tau Ceti-e, but upon arrival, they discover that the planet has become uninhabitable. As living conditions on their ship deteriorate, a young man named Haruo spearheads a movement to return to Earth and take it back from the monsters. The ship successfully makes the return voyage, but the crew realizes that twenty thousand years have passed, with Earth's ecosystem having evolved to become centered around Godzilla.

TL;DR Review

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

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, kaiju, and even normies. The anime contains graphic violence naturally, as it is a Godzilla movie.

"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."
