Himesh Reshammiya’s The Xpose and Gareth Edwards Godzilla to release on May 16

Here’s our update on the movie’s releasing this Friday. Have a look

The Xpose

Set in the 1960’s, Xpose is a blend of desire, scandal and murder. It is a dramatic chain of events in the most glamorous, swinging era of Hindi films. A decade when film stars tasted success and carried their larger than life screen image on to real life with unbridled pomp and splendour. It was during this time that the film world was shocked at the death of the sensational sex symbol. But the mystery remains if it was a murder, accident or suicide.

Release Date: May 16, 2014

Director: Ananth Narayan Mahadevan

Cast: Himesh Reshammiya, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Sonali Raut, Zoya Afroz, Adil Hussain, Ananth Narayan Mahadevan

Verdict: After the trailer left people clueless as to what the movie holds because of some bad dialogues and scenes but a better and gripping plot, there is a mixed emotion regarding the film. Apart from that, what the viewers can look out for is Yo Yo Honey Singh’s acting talent and the slim and trim Himesh Reshamiyya.

Godzilla

Following the atomic bomb tests in French Polynesia in the South Pacific, an unknown creature is spotted passing eastward. Scientist Niko Tatopolous is called in to look into the matter, and he quickly arrives at the conclusion that a giant, irradiated lizard- Godzilla has been created by the explosions. Godzilla then makes its way north, landing at Manhattan to begin wreaking havoc in the city. Even with the combined forces of the U.S. military to fight Godzilla, will it be sufficient to put an end to the chaos and save the people of New York.

Release Date: May 16, 2014

Director: Gareth Edwards

Cast: Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Juliette Binoche, Ken Watanabe

Verdict: The film which is the re-imagining of the 1998 version, falls short of the brilliance that surrounds Japan’s most famous monster. The performances by Cranston and Olsen are good, and Taylor-Johnson as the lead is enjoyable, but then again, they’re barely in the film. Godzilla himself misses a good chunk of the film, and the inclusion of other monsters steals focus from him. The action scene and CGI were good, but good have been better. But the main problem with the film is the pacing and the script, there are too many elements, badly presented and the film just falls apart in the middle. Although the pre-screening reviews were largely positive, this film didn’t do it for me. I would give this a one time watch, at most.

IMDb: 8.6/10

Rotten Tomatoes: 84%
