Best: Patience with the spectacle
While much of the imagery in the film is stunning, it's also not eager to show you things, and that's sort of refreshing in a day and age where blockbuster filmmaking aims to numb the audience. Edwards reveals Godzilla in fits and starts, and always from a human perspective, adding an artful elegance to the way the movie is made. He cribs from the great maestro himself, Steven Spielberg, frequently, but it's always with love and yields exemplary set pieces throughout.
