Godzilla (2014)

Godzilla vs Pacific Rim: Fight!

Godzilla: Giant monsters smashing cities.
Pacific Rim: Giant monsters smashing cities, plus giant robots smashing giant monsters.

Godzilla: Sporadic action until the end.
Pacific Rim: Enough action to last a tub of popcorn.

Godzilla: Second-rate acting and silly script; still takes itself way too seriously.
Pacific Rim: Second-rate acting and silly script; knows it, doesn’t care.

Neither movie is exactly championship material but at least Pacific Rim puts on a good show. For Godzilla chalk up another failed comeback attempt.
