See? The magic turn-your-back trick has worked. As soon as the mecha-kaiju gave up and started to walk away, the original kaiju got up.
And he got up in style! The best style. For he’s not only getting up, he’s hulking up. That style has the added advantage that it confers temporary invulnerability on the person performing it. No attack launched against somebody who’s in the process of hulking up has any discernable effect whatsoever, as decreed by the unchanging laws of the universe. (And, admittedly, the mecha-kaiju’s attack with a single missile was kinda half-hearted to begin with).
Known side effects of the style include using the word “brother” a lot. And possibly using the word n##### a lot when you don’t know you’re being recorded. It’s also a sure-fire crowd pleaser, at least unless the script was written by Vince Russo. Which this movie could never afford, so we’re golden.
Anyway, the take-away is simply this: The kaiju is back up and back in business, baby!
More on Thurs…uh, Monday!
