** It's amusing to consider what possible need a creature from millions of years ago would have had to evolve an ''EMP'' as a defense mechanism, or how it would know to use it against attacking helicopters. Especially since this weapon seems to becompletely useless against their only known predator, Godzilla.

*** The film's novelization and an earlier script suggest that the MUTO's EMP interferes with Godzilla's atomic breath.

Added DiffLines:

* PragmaticHero: Interestingly, ''Godzilla'' qualifies. He doesn't go out of his way to cause destruction and chaos or attract attention from the humans or [=MUTO=]s, and in fact he ''never'' attacks the humans until they open fire on him first.

** Godzilla's not particularly interested in fighting with humans and goes out of his way not to fight them even when they are opening fire on him. Like Gareth said, humans are like ants to him. You don't go out of your way to stomp on every ant you see, do you?
** The [=MUTO=]s aren't really evil; most of the destruction they cause is just due to them being so large, and through the movie they act like actual animals. There are even sympathetic moments with them, such as the loving moment the couple have sharing a nuke, and the mother crying at the destruction of her nest.

you? He also dives ''under'' a ship while approaching Honolulu rather than just going through it without a care.

Notably, [[spoiler:the female doesn't stop to wreck anything in Las Vegas, the destruction she causes is entirely incidental as she just walks through the city in a straight line, ignoring everything else]].

->''"The arrogance of man is thinking nature is in our control, and ->''"[[TheConspiracy You're not fooling anybody]] when you say that what happened 15 years ago was a 'natural disaster,' alright? It was not an earthquake, it wasn't a typhoon, okay?... You're lying! Because what's really happening is that you're hiding something out there. I'm right, aren't I? ''[[SuddenlyShouting MY WIFE DIED HERE! SOMETHING KILLED MY WIFE! AND I HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW!! I DESERVE ANSWERS!]]''" *lights flicker* "You see? There it is again. ... This is what caused everything in the other way around... Let them fight."''

The narrative picks up in 1999, when the Brody family, Americans contracted to work at the Janjira nuclear plant in Japan, drop off their son at school and head to work, only to be torn apart when a sudden earthquake causes the plant to collapse. Fifteen years later, Joe Brody convinces his son Ford, now a US Navy lieutenant, to help him investigate the Janjira collapse more closely, which brings them into the middle of a conspiracy involving the organisation known as MONARCH and the rekindling of an ancient conflict between giants that could threaten the safety of the world.

** Trailers heavily featured Bryan Cranston of ''Series/BreakingBad'' fame. His character is important in the beginning of the film, but [[spoiler: dies pretty quickly]].

This however isn't the case in an earlier screenplay from 2012 where Joe was called "Nathan Brody" and he was Ford's stepfather.



* AdultFear: You child is on an evacuating vehicle when a giant monster suddenly rises from the ocean, and the Navy starts attacking it. Stenz is understandably worried when he realizes Godzilla's current location is nearing the Golden Gate Bridge.
