Tom Glasson(Concrete Playground): A belonging to-sized blockbuster, where the humans are completely incidental.
Steve Persall(Tampa Bay Times): Sure, in that place's something to be declared for teasing an audience… ratcheting up contemplation of what's eventually to come. But at some juncture – much earlier than guide Gareth Edwards intends – Godzilla needs to obstruct being an extra in his recognize movie.
