** The HALO drop has the men sitting in the cargo hold of the aircraft waiting, then strapping on air masks and hopping out of the back of the plane. In truth, they would have needed to be pre-breathing a particular gas mix for at least an hour to get the nitrogen out of their blood or they'd wind up with the bends.

* GenreSavvy:
** While the military has its share of dumb moments, they seem to realize pretty quickly who the good guy is, using all their ordinance on the [=MUTO=]s and only firing on Godzilla once (which was [[JustifiedTrope justified]]: the ship firing at first had just been jostled by the big guy and was likely just reacting, with the rest seemingly doing the same). Once it has been established that Godzilla isn't interested in harming humans, the Navy is instead seen ''providing an escort fleet''.
** When the male [=MUTOs=] cocoon starts acting up, the scientists decide to kill it ASAP, [[JustThinkOfThePotential sacrificing scientific discovery]] [[AvertedTrope in favor of safety.]] They then demand [[NeverFoundTheBody an immediate visual on the body.]] It didn't work, but at least they were smart enough to not mess around with something so powerful.
** When the monsters start to get close to civilization, the military immediately abandons any attempt to keep [[TheMasquerade the existence of Kaiju a secret.]]
** Unusually for a 'natural disaster befalls American nuclear family' movie, when the shit starts to go down, the parents get their kid out of the city ASAP, [[spoiler:though given the evacuation route, it's hard to say whether this put Sam in more or less danger]].
** When the father at Waikiki has his attention drawn by his daughter to the retreating water, he ''immediately'' grabs her, screams "Tsunami!" and starts running like hell. Most of the people around him on the beach do so as well, even before the sirens' start going off.
** The military goes with the standard "kill monster with nuke" route. However, when Serizawa protests, they reply they're not trying to kill the [=MUTOs=] with the radiation (since they eat it), instead they're going to lure it out of San Francisco, then detonate the bomb to hopefully kill the [=MUTOs=] with the force of the blast.



** Dr. Serizawa is GenreSavvy enough to know that humanity ''needs'' Godzilla to stop the [=MUTO=]s.

* NothingIsScarier: A lot of the time, the presence of the monsters are felt through the paths of destruction they leave in their wake rather than actual appearances on-screen. Many scenes have significant moments of silence before the monsters reveal their extremely huge presence. All in all, the movie is seen more through human perception than the monsters'.

* LogoJoke: None for the film itself (unusually given how WarnerBros loves doing this), but IMAX viewers were treated to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNk0CA0o8zA a special version of the pre-movie countdown]].

'''''Godzilla''''' is Creator/LegendaryPictures' 2014 ContinuityReboot to the ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' franchise, and the second ''Godzilla'' movie produced in America, following the [[{{Film/Godzilla 1998}} 1998 remake]]. It is also the first ''Godzilla'' film to be made since ''Film/GodzillaFinalWars'' 10 years earlier, as well as the first ''Godzilla'' movie to receive an American theatrical release since ''{{Film/Godzilla 2000}}''. It's directed by Creator/GarethEdwards (''Film/{{Monsters|2010}}''). [[RevisitingTheRoots It takes a great deal of inspiration from]] [[Film/Godzilla1954 the original 1954 film]] over the {{Camp}} {{Toku}} movies of the late Showa era [[PopCulturalOsmosis that most Western audiences are familiar with]]. The film also shares several similarities with [[Film/{{Godzilla1994}} the unused 1994 script]] for the first American ''Godzilla'' movie to a lesser degree.

* FollowTheLeader: The makers of the ''Franchise/{{Gamera}}'' films are making their own ContinuityReboot for Gamera's MilestoneCelebration in response to this film.



* MissingTrailerScene: None of the stuff in the initial teaser trailer makes it into the film (not the centipede kaiju, not the city that was demolished, no shots of people climbing on the outsides of ruined building). There's also no speech briefing the soldiers about their HALO jump, and no scene of Godzilla roaring as the shelter doors close on the subway (which is instead replaced with the initial clash between Godzilla and the flying [=MUTO=]. The HALO jump also is given a shot of Godzilla and the winged [=MUTO=] fighting, instead of Godzilla walking around the city. The "Can you kill it?" conversation also never takes place.
