He pulls the spitting high tension wires down."

"Godzilla" is one big dumb beast of a movie.
"Godzilla" has impressive computer-generated special effects, excellent production values and a cast of fine actors.
That can't rescue a poorly conceived story, predictable screenplay and choppy directing.
"Godzilla" is front-loaded with a back-story about nuclear power plant official Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston) and his scientist wife Sandra (Juliette Binoche).
