The gi­ant lizard is back in a re­boot from the di­rec­tor of Mon­sters. Tay­lor-John­son, Cranston and Binoche play a bor­ing fam­ily caught up in the mayhem. The new Godzilla is packed full of bravura se­quences. It works hard at re­uphol­ster­ing the myths while stay­ing true to the orig­i­nal spirit. Un­for­tu­nately, it’s also just a lit­tle too po-faced, a lit­tle too short on char­ac­ter and a lit­tle too, well, drab. 12A cert, gen re­lease, 123 min
