Final Verdict: As it got nearly a perfect score, I would obviously recommend seeing Godzilla in 3D, IMAX if you can. Gareth Edwards was careful to consider how to implement the device into the film he wanted to create. The cinematography does make use of rack focus, and out of focus foreground elements, which are both elements that I have docked points for in other films. But while I noticed them here, they didn't jolt my eye as they have in the past. Instead, I felt like Edwards was gently guiding my eye to focus on what was on importance to him in the scene.

The use of 3D in Godzilla is a major boost to its spectacle, throwing audiences into the world with its enhanced depth and the bolstered sense of motion the 3D brings to the experience. But also, Edwards careful direction feels like he is leading us and our eye through the story in a way that is totally masterful, pulling our focus to a poignant moment between parent and child, then throwing us into a dizzying action sequences where Godzilla roars into focus in all his glory. If you're only going to see one 3D movie this year, I'd make it Godzilla.

How will you see Godzilla?
