Godzilla 1998 chase scene
This is a famous chase scene from the 1998 film Godzilla this is a remake of the original Japanese movie made in 1954.
This is a perfect example of a monster movie as it the protagonists have to defend themselves from the very destructive beast that is Godzilla.
The wide shot is used in this clip, i think to show not only the setting but also the destruction of Godzilla, the clip also shows the use of low and high angles to give the audience the impression of being small and to also show the vulnerability of some of the characters.
This scene also shows very fast cuts, I think as this is a chase scene this is to show the terror and panic of the characters and to keep the chase scene interesting and moving, as it would not be as interesting with a single panning shot.
