When I first heard that Godzilla was getting an American reboot, my stomach rumbled with a dull sense of dread. The old Japanese Godzilla movies played a major part in my childhood. And after the misfire that was Roland Emmerich’s goofy 1998 Godzilla, I wasn’t especially hopeful Hollywood understood what made this monster so magnificent. But thankfully, director Gareth Edwards does. His Godzilla is the one America owes the world. It’s expansive, epic, and spectacular.
