“Monsters” was a small, film that did a lot with its budget. Edwards did a fine job of creating a sense of danger, though the film was certainly more about the human characters than the alien creatures. I don;t doubt that he is capable of making the new Godzilla film, but I also didn’t see anything in “Monsters” that indicates he will bring something unique to the project. That isn’t to say he won’t. “Monsters” was a good movie, especially for a new director. It just didn’t have any “wow” factor for me.
All that said, he is smart enough to make Godzilla look like Godzilla.
