*** All true, though traffic across the Oakland Bay Bridge is notoriously bad given that it carries three times the daily traffic that the Golden Gate Bridge does, and there are many times when a route from Oakland->Richmond Bridge->Golden Gate Bridge->SF is quicker than the Oakland->Bay Bridge->SF. If Sam had to be evacuated from western San Francisco, it will almost always be faster to go north first, especially if the goal is to leave the city as soon as possible rather than drive from the western side to the eastern side where the Bay Bridge is.

* WindowsOfTheSoul: After Godzilla kills the male MUTO, a skyscraper falls on him, and he and Ford see each other eye-to-eye. Ford looks at Godzilla in awe while the look in Godzilla gives Ford a peaceful expression. In the novelization, it's elaborated that Ford is awestruck by the intelligence he sees in Godzilla's eyes.

''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.

** The way Godzilla [[spoiler:kills the female MUTO is the same way he killed the Gryphon in the script of ''Film/{{Godzilla 1994}}'']]. In the same vein, Godzilla is awakened to specifically fight two kaiju endangering the Earth -- and one is winged.

* 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.

** 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.
