The film’s cinematography:

Simply put, its cinematography is outstanding when compared to the previous Godzilla film. Right from the start, the viewers will get a tense and suspenseful atmosphere as paratroopers prepare themselves to protect their country and  their lives as they go down to a smoky, semi-destroyed San Francisco. When you watch this particular scene, you will easily feel the emotion and suspense the soldiers are feeling as the siren sounds and they move down of the plane. As they begin to go down, with flares guiding their path, you will get a glimpse of the surroundings through one of the soldier’s goggles; you will hear their heavy and uneasy breathing.  As they pass through a cloud layer, viewers will be given an angle shot of San Francisco falling into a wasteland and completely eradicated by an unknown force of nature – and then you will see as the lightening flares, the figure of a gigantic creature barely visible through the thick fog. Again, through the sight of one soldier, you will have a glimpse of Godzilla, bent over, walking slowly through the debris, viewers will get a rough estimate of how incredibly huge this creature is as buildings and other establishments look tiny by comparison.
