Don't worry if you don't recognize any of the actors or the films they were in, because they are all Japanese actors in this Japanese/Toho productions reboot of the Godzilla franchise-their last film was in 2004. Shin means 'New', 'True' or 'God', depending on your translation- it can mean any one of them. Now, this series is not connected to the American reboot way back in 2014. In this one, they use a mixture of the old fashion puppetry-a guy in a suit-motion capture and CGI. They also start the story from the beginning, with Godzilla-or Gojira as he is called in Japan-as a four legged bug eyed serpent type creature that crawls out of the ocean and once on land, starts to evolve into the two legged monster we all know and love, that wrecks havoc on modern day Tokyo. This version focuses a lot on the Japanese politicians trying to decide on how to handle the 388 foot tall Godzilla. They have cabinet meetings and assign a committee to come up with a plan, then vote on it, etc. There are even talks about enlisting the U.S., France and other countries into helping them. FYI: The U.S. want to nuke Godzilla. Hiroki is a cabinet secretary, Yutaka is an aide to the Japanese Prime Minister, Satomi is an American/Japanese diplomat and Ren is the Japanese Prime Minister. Godzilla uses his fire breath as well as some kind of beams of energy from his back spines and tail. The movie is in Japanese, with English sub-titles and is in a limited engagement of only one week, so if you are a fan, you might want to hurry to the theaters. The American title for the movie is 'Godzilla Resurgence'. It's rated "PG" for violence and destruction and has a running time of 2 hours. I wouldn't buy it on DVD but it would be a good rental, if you are a fan. This movie is the first Godzilla movie I've been able to see in theaters. This Godzilla is great, people complain about how it's boring because of all the bureaucracy stuff. That's because this movie is a satire of the state of Japan's current government( not trumping to offend anybody). Like the original, which was a commentary on the destruction of Nuclear Radiation, this movie is supposed to send a message. People claiming this movie is boring are totally missing the point. Other's main gripe is that this Godzilla is too different from his previous incarnations. That's the point. It may help that they had Hideki Anno direction along side Shinji Higuchi, who both had ideas for the film and they took shape this way. I'm sorry if you don't like it, but, if you do, have a big, hearty slice of Godzilla vs The Sea Monster, you simpering, fish-lipped half-wits. Heh heh, get it? If this fun but frequently exasperating new chapter in Godzilla
