What did you think of Mark Russel. Did you think he was a well written character? Personally, I liked him. Even though he was a scientist he felt like a relatable every-man too me. He was set apart from the other characters, he didn’t have any grand motives to save the planet like his ex wife or create coexistence like Serizawa. He just wanted his daughter back, and would like nothing more than to spend time in the woods taking pics of animals. He also was very well acted by Kyle Chandler.

He was engaging. So that's something.

His character had an overall decent character arc about grief, forgiveness and acceptance. His character served his propose in the story and I didn't get annoyed at him or got bored because of him. Hopefully, we will see him again in GvK.
Long live the king...
I liked his character just fine. I wanted to see more of him and get know him as well as many of the other characters. The characters were interesting; just needed to be developed a bit more. This was a man, and a family who lost one of their children and it destroyed them. It splintered the parents into two very different directions. He became an alcoholic and eventually an isolationist, and she became this radical activist who, in trying to understand the creatures that were responsible for her son's death, had misplaced priorities and ideals about those creatures' place in the world. This movie needed a bit more exposition of the human characters; maybe another 20-30 minutes, and a bit more Mothra and Rodan. I loved this movie. Listening to the soundtrack right now and it totally kicks ass.
