SHIN GODZILLA is a Japanese monster movie about an enormous creature that goes on the rampage after emerging from Tokyo Bay.

Violence

There are frequent scenes of action violence which consist of military attacks on the monster and sequences in which the monster destroys buildings. The violence mostly consists of undetailed gunfire and explosions, but there are infrequent gory moments.

Threat

There are scenes where people are distressed such as civilians are seen running from the giant monster; a woman cries out as the monster breaks through her apartment block. There are also scenes of chaos when people try to force their way onto trains to escape from the attack.
