Wathcing Godzilla 2014 again... GRRRR
You can't honestly say you weren't deeply confused, dissapointed or pist when the airport scene cuts to Ford Brodie's kid watching the news showing Godzilla on tv (WHO HASNT BEEN ON THE BIG SCREEN FOR YEARS) fighting. That movie could have (SHOULD HAVE) been much better! If the fans could have seen Godzilla destory the Muto at the airport the movie would have been 10 times better and made millions more. They could have created one more male Muto somewhere else.... Damn trailers!! I watched them way too much.
Only 3 years and some days until Ghidorah kicks some ass...
JPJOE84 - It's excellent that you're so passionate about this topic! With regards to my own standpoint, I wasn't displeased with the cutaway from the battle; it was simply (in my opinion) an interesting - and daring - choice on the director's part. Of course, this is simply my view of the subject; if you were displeased by Edwards' choice, you have right to feel so and express it! :)
You werent displeased but would you have enjoyed the movie more if Godzilla makes his big debut AND THEN kicked some ass on sceen?
We were teased enough! Godzilla didn't appear in the film for awhile. I liked Edwards' technique in teasing the audience but I can't watch that scene without wanting more.
Its like teasing a baby or a puppy for much too long!!!! ha
No one should ever tease a baby, by the way!

I fear fan division about this scene will be discussed for decades. The headache won't stop. At this point it's more interesting to speculate how fans will remember it than the scene itself.

I love this title it's not even asking my opinion it's telling me how I felt with no room for argument.
You sir, need to make more threads like this.
They definitely could have shown more before the cutaway, just Godzilla tossing the muto around for a second to show that he means business but the HUGE thing that noone asks . . .how the hell did Brody get out of his situation?!! Last we saw him he was dangling from one arm with a kid ready to die. Oops can't think of a good way to get out of this and we're saving the cgi budget for the end so . . . eh just cutaway. People were so angry about not getting the Godzilla goods that the Brody thing didn't pop into mind.
did not really bother me, i felt as if the scene was actually best left unseen. It not only made the finale more epic to actually see the King kicking ass but made the movie feel more special.

I foung it funny. In fact, everyone in the theater laughed.You shouldnt go around pretending you know nhow everyone feel about something. If you dont like it, thats fine. I can see why some would be unsatisfied. You have too learn too look at things from others perspective.
How about this? I loved they cut away from the scene, your sir, shouldn't pretend everyone else shares your opinion. It's fine if you hate the cut away but don't assume everyone else hates it.
I am disappointed that people still B***H! About this stuff. The movie has done it's thing and now it is in the past. Move on people and deal with it.

Does this really warrant a topic?

In the moment I wasn't mad, because I knew I would it would be worth it in the end. But by the end of the movie, I was angry, because Goji on screen was horribly dark, all I saw were shadows. I didn't get a good look at him, or really know what he looked like in the movie, until the bonus features and extra clips started appearing online.
I'm not angry or dissapointed, but I would've been more happy if there was a fight after that mighty roar.

The scene was not supposed to be "Godzilla vs MUTO Fight 1." The entire Hawaii sequence was literally there to reveal Godzilla; a better summary title of the scene would be "Godzilla Arrives." The reason why they cut away from the fight was, again, becuase the scene was not supposed to have a brawl, and that's not a bad thing. Once Godzilla shows up and gives his "Back from 10 year slumber" roar, the scene need not continue, as its reason for existance had been completed.
I for one needed that cut. I remember being completely out of breath after I saw the scene for the first time; gasping for air as they panned over the aftermath. I don't think I could have taken a fight sequence after that much heart-racing build up.
Now, does that mean I didn't want to see them fight? Of course not; I love Kaiju action. The ending 20 minutes was worth the price of admission alone. I'm just saying that the Airport scene has enough tension as it stands. It doesn't really need a battle sequence to make it any better.
