In 2014's Godzilla, this scene occurs:
Admiral William Stenz: [on mobilizing warheads] I know you don't agree with this. But my first priority is to safeguard our citizens.
[Serizawa shows Admiral Stenz a watch]
Admiral William Stenz: It's stopped.
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: Yes. Eight-fifteen in the morning, August 6 1945.
Admiral William Stenz: Hiroshima.
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa: It was my father's.
It may not come across clearly in the transcript, but to me at least, the scene highly implied that Serizawa's father died in the atomic bombing.
However, if that was true, it would make Serizawa about 70 years old, minimum. He doesn't appear to be that old. His actor, Ken Watanabe was only born in 1959.
So was Serizawa born during or before WWII, or did I totally misread the scene?
