Godzilla Minus One – Minus Color is a brilliant black & white conversion of the sensational film that evokes the essence of the 1954 original Gojira and plays extremely well with the WWII era. Rather than simply throwing a black & white filter over the color version, the visual effects artists painstakingly edited each shot to maintain both the quality of the shot and ensure that details were perhaps even more obvious to the audience. Having watched several black & white or monochrome versions of films, what stands out the most to me is how much cleaner certain visual effects look, from CGI to questionable costume colors. On what’s been confirmed to be a $10,000,000 budget, Godzilla Minus One shines even brighter in the black & white edition and manages to look even better and becomes even more horrifying in some moments.
