The computer graphics in Godzilla Resurgence are quite good. Let’s see how they all came together.

While I have mixed feelings about the film itself, I loved the look of it, the camera setups, and the CG.

The CG felt tactile and heavy like the models and miniature sets of the past. As Kotaku previously reported, a Japanese stage actor did Godzilla’s motion capture performance. It’s the 21st century’s version of suit-acting, and it does bring realism to the character’s movements.

The CG is a nice look. I hope it’s the blueprint for future films.
