Godzilla type monster movie set in the stereotypical monster movie capital – Manhattan.
But this time it’s all seen through the eyes, or rather camera of one man as he starts off filming a party and then him and his friends efforts to save the main man’s unrequited love.
At times the shaky cams makes you feel a bit queasy, but it was too big expected since the cinema actually had a notice on the cinema door warning viewers to expect motion sickness “like being on a rollercoaster”
It worked really well though – a really typical monster flick, but seen through a participant’s eyes rather than contrived angles. The first 20 minutes of the film were a normal pyt American movie about some dude fancying his long term pal but then not knowing how to leave for Japan without saying goodbye or ‘I Love You’.
Well worth a look – gripping – scary – and an extremely original take on a standard genre.
