They couldn't think of anything else to do with the only 2 interesting humans in this movie? Spoilers

Seriously, Bryan Cranston dieing in the first 20 minutes of the movie came out of nowhere considering just how much of the trailers and previews focused on him. Heck, I think the only footage we didn't see of him beforehand was him dieing.

And then 10 minutes after that Ken Watanabe pretty much stops being important and basically just spends the next hour and a half telling the Admiral(?) how much of an idiot he was.

When I saw the trailers I honestly thought it would be these two coming up with all the plans on how to stop the Kaiju with Aaron Taylor-Johnson's character (for some reason) being shoe-horned in to setting those plans in to motion.

I loved this movie, but they really squandered the talent they had.
