Verdict – 1/5

Cons –
1) Too much time wasted in built up. All peek-a-boo and blink-and-miss will only frustrate the audiences.
2) Ken Watanabe and Bryan Cranston wasted.
3) Worst Lead actors possible; bad casting.
4) Terrible “family-sub-plot”
5) As a summary, “Godzilla” is the first 2 minutes of “Pacific Rim“.
