Can someone make a good action film... please?

I recently saw the new Godzilla movie and to say it was a disappointment would be an understatement.  If you haven't seen it and you plan to, you probably shouldn't read this... But don't say I didn't warn you! The movie is called Godzilla, and during the whole 2 hour film, he was present for about 10 minutes.  Granted those were the best 10 minutes of the film, but not enough to call it a film about him.  I would like to propose some possible alternative titles for the film:

-"Military Everything"

-"Crashing Helicopters"

-"Collapsing Skyscrapers"

-"Explosions"

Godzilla is there somewhere, among the chaos of military and explosions.


All of the above titles would be more appropriate considering they happened in more abundance than Godzilla. Besides the apparent absence of the main character, there were many other inaccuracies that made it difficult to watch the film, such as at LEAST 10 helicopters in every scene, flying very low and completely unnecessarily.  Also, a nuclear bomb fell 200 feet off of a train bridge and nothing happened, and someone survived after the train fell onto him, in a quickly flowing river, full of train debris WITH a monster terrorizing everything.  If that wasn't enough, no one seemed to have any observational skills.  They kept investigating sites of these monsters and it always took them several minutes to discover things like, a giant hole in the side of a building with a monster walking away, or a nuclear submarine sticking out of the jungle.  All of these things do not require 'special teams' to investigate.

I know there are going to be inaccuracies in any movie. I just don't like when it completely take away from the film.  Or when a woman in the front row yawns as loudly as possible and everyone makes a noise of agreement.  Will someone please make a good action film?
