These ships thought they had a problem with that bomber? No, now they've got a problem.
There's a sense of enormity here that's simply profound. I mean, this thing is just fucking huge. It helps too, that it's based on the same scale as Noper's preceding volley. That only such a small portion of the beast fits within the frame works so well. I'm reminded of JJ Abrams' Cloverfield, or at least the teaser for it. (If you ask me, Cloverfield was one of those movies that maybe should have only been a teaser.) Just hint at an enormous beast, and let our imaginations fill in the rest. You can't see how big this thing is, but you can feel it.
I like how the monster's skin is the same color as the sea, but, unlike the elements carried over from the previous layer, is so richly textured. We thought this was one type of story about conflict in the south Pacific, but now it's a different one. New story, new style.
