Michael Dougherty called it “black comedy”.

The “joke” is along the lines of “ha ha you thought you were gonna see Sally Hawkins through the whole movie? Nope! We’ll kill her at the end of Act 1 and have her die in a comical manner by having her be eaten alive by Ghidorah.”

Another reason was to show that no one is safe, but that doesn’t help much still knowing that part of the reason was for Lulz.

I absolutely LOVE black comedy... as long as it makes sense to me. Then again, I did chuckle a little in shock when that happened the first time I saw it... aw shit, is that a red flag? XD

So it was basically like Bryan Cranston in Godzilla 2014 except this time it was intentional? Because the whole Bryan Cranston  thing in the first one really made my mom angry, because he was the only reason she watched the movie... she doesn't like Kaiju movies or anything like that (Except the original King Kong) but loves Breaking Bad... She still won't let ME live that one down, for whatever reason lol

Well then, isn't that just dumb? It just doesn't make any sense.

Well anyone can die indeed, now I haven't seen any of the millennium godzilla movies yet or the rest of the Rebirth of Mothra trilogy but is this the first time Ghidorah ate a human?

@Xenotaris

I have seen all of the Millennium movies and the entire Rebirth of Mothra trilogy, and I can 100% say for certain that if you don't count (Spoilers Ahead!) Grand King Ghidorah trapping kids in a life-sucking bubble in Rebirth of Mothra 3, then yes, Monsterverse Ghidorah is the first time a Ghidorah ate a human.

Xenotaris

MemberGiganSep-30-2019 3:29 PM

well he isn't physically eating the children, so it doesn't quite count. Monsterverse Ghidorah is a true monster indeed

Indeed. Wished he wasn't introduced so early.

Okay I don't want to be that guy but do y'all really think that Graham was actually chewed up? With the impact and force that Ghidorah was going for was not to pick her up with precision to chew her up, come on, she was most likely buried or fell off that 50 mile long ice, it's highly unlikely that she was chewed up along with it.

Shane Gilbert,
I don't think the complaint is how she was eaten, but merely the carelessness regarding her death. "For a laugh," is a pretty bad reason to body a character we had some minor connection to based on the prior movie.

Agreed, "carelessness" is the word I'd use, not "black humor."

It was dumb and in poor taste both for her character and the overall narrative.

But, considering the movie in question...

I'd say I had no major connection to Graham to begin with simply because her role in the previous film was pretty small. That said, her character was likable enough and I really like Sally Hawkins as an actress; I feel like her character definitely had potential, which was essentially wasted when they killed her off. Even so, there could have been at least somewhat of an emotional impact among the other characters after her death, something that was pretty much nonexistent. The audience can't feel the emotion or urgency of a situation if the given characters don't feel it themselves.
