12 Giant Plot-Holes You Didn't Notice In 2014's Biggest Movies
12. Godzilla Soldiers Are All Idiots
Though it was a triumphant return to form (and bankability) for Godzilla as a movie character, Gareth Edwards' Godzilla reboot was far from unflawed. Aaron Taylor-Johnson was mercilessly bland, there were a few too many knowing hero shots and the writing at times was a little wrong-headed, including a moment where one MUTO genuinely seems to give the other one a sex toy covered in monster ejaculate. That last point rings particularly true when you consider the US Army's plan to take down the MUTOs by luring them away from all the vulnerable people and cities and blowing them to smithereens using nuclear weapons. This would have been a reasonable plan if it weren't for the fact that the very thing that the plan hinged on - the MUTOs' love of delicious nuclear material - wasn't the thing that was also entirely ignored in the logistics stage. Instead of hiding the bombs to transport across country where they could be taken out to sea, the Army instead mounts the warheads on the back of a flatbed on a slow train - considerably less manoeuvrable than a MUTO - somehow ignoring the fact that the MUTOs have an incredible ability to sniff out nuclear things from miles away. Smart move.
