Editorial Reviews

Following the French atomic bomb tests in the South Pacific, an unknown creature is spotted passingwestward through the Panama Canal. Scientist Niko Tatopolous is called in to investigate the matter, and he quickly arrives at the conclusion that a giant, irradiated lizard has been created by the explosions. Godzilla(r) then makes its way north, landing at Manhattan to begin wreaking havoc in the big city. Even with the combined forces of the U.S. military to fight the monster, will it be enough to save the people of New York?

5.0 out of 5 stars A film to make the Big Guy proud June 16, 2005
Format:DVD
Okay, I know this is going to be a highly disputed opinion, but I think this movie is very, very good. Great, I'd even daresay. And I am a Godzilla fan. I love the Big Guy from his early masterworks to his campy mid-period to his new thrilling outings.

Admittedly, this is not the same Godzilla. But Godzilla himself is a product of the 50s fascination with giant monsters, and this movie is really just an homage to all those old, great monster movies. Anyway, I don't see why the universe isn't big enough for two Godzillas.

A lot of fans hated this just for the idea. But Tristar had to make a new version. The old version would've flopped in America. In fact, Godzilla 2000 came out about a year later, and it did terrible. So where were those so-called fans when he really needed them? I submit that there really aren't that many Godzilla fans. There's plenty of people who claim to be, but do they really like him or these types of films? Doesn't seem like it.

Onto the movie. First there's Godzilla. He's a terrific special effect. Some people say he doesn't look real. He looks pretty darn impressive to me. Realism is a rather silly complaint when you're talking about a giant lizard running through New York.

The story is deceptively simple. You could boil it down to Army vs. Monster, but there's a creativity here that gets overlooked. The characters (all of whom are well-developed especially considering none are the real star) are all likable. Their motivations are believable. And their story arcs are solidly connected to the central conflict in a way that doesn't seem forced.

The action sequences are wonderful. I like to think of them as monstrous versions of great kung fu showdowns.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delight That Deserves More Respect July 14, 2013
Format:DVD
My relationship with this film is odd, and as mutated as the lizard himself. When I first saw it, I didn't care for it. Simply, it wasn't a Godzilla film, and this very well done creature was not Godzilla/Gojira. Godzilla is a kaiju. In the Toho Films tradition, that's a critter of immense size and inexplicable abilities whose life is all about breaking stuff. Lots of stuff. But this Godzilla is an innocent. He causes damage only when looking for food or seeking a place to make his (?) nest. That's not a kaiju. As Mathew Broderick says in the film, "he's just an animal."

About a year after I saw it, I happened upon the DVD playing in a Sam's Club, and, to my surprise, found myself smiling. I bought the DVD, and the more I watch it, the more I love it. It's a delightful film, rich with terrific performances by a lovable cast. Jean Reno is classic as Philippe Roche, an "insurance agent" who is really much more. Hank Azaria is worth the ticket price all by himself as news photographer "Animal." Maria Pitillo is funny and enchanting. We also have the brilliant Michael Lerner as "Mayor Ebert" (get it?) and the ever reliable Kevin Dunn as the colonel in charge of operations. Everyone does a great job, and Broderick himself plays Nick Tatopoulos (the last name is taken from the visual effects director) as moody and difficult to approach, a sort of ultra geek AKA "the worm guy," for his work with earthworms in nuclear environments. Usually he's warm and cuddly; not until "The Producers" remake did we see an edgy side to him. He's a riot.

Visually, despite some opinions to the contrary by no less a film luminary than Roger Ebert, the effects are magnificent. Ebert's problem with rain allegedly hiding flaws is dead wrong. Of course, Mr.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Liked It! March 16, 2013
Format:DVD
I understand all the moaning about how the makers of this film ripped "Alien" off for one part of this film but, come on, Godzilla never looked better than he does here, even in Japanese films made years after this one. He no longer plods along, obviously a man in a clunky suit. He looks like a real, very believable dinosaur in this. My favorite scenes are those in which the old boy is chased by helicopters through the streets of New York. He steps on buildings, jumps through them and makes for a very realistic monster reeking havoc in a real modern metropolis. Those scenes are great!

I also thought the destruction of the Chryslar Building was really well done.

It was fun to see two of the voice-over stars from "The Simpsons" as main characters as well.

I suggest you get over being so picky and view the film as an overall picture, and a very entertaining one with great special effects ta boot!

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining March 9, 2013
By N. Puig
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this movie and isn't that what a movie is supposed to do, give us enjoyment. The sound and special effects were above standards.
The actors were fun to watch. Hank as Victor "animal" was a big hit. He was funny and yet convincing as a warm, loving husband. The French guy was so tough and full of action but could never seem to get a decent cup of coffee. And Broderick did a great job. All of them were convincing in the parts they played.
This is a movie that I had to buy as I will watch again and again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mind-numbing June 20, 2000
Format:DVD
Enormously hyped, with an advertising campaign that ran for over a year, this follow-up to 'Independence Day' had all the explosions and effects of that earlier film, but with none of the charm, or indeed anything else. At all. The absolute apotheosis of the 'big-budget effects movie', 'Godzilla' is quite literally an excuse for a set of CGI / model shots of a big monster tramping around New York. Handled well, this might have been enough, but it isn't handled well - it borrows liberally from elsewhere, and tries for a post-modern, self-mocking tone that fails through a lack of wit. It all seems as if it has been processed through a big mincer, with all the flavour or interest washed-out, just like the gloomy skies in the film. Despite the omnipresent rain and gloom, the effects are well-done - they have to be, as there is absolutely no other reason to watch this film. None at all. There must be a script there somewhere, as I can remember that the story made sense, but I can't remember anything anybody said. The acting is superfluous - I felt sorry for poor Matthew Broderick, as he is quite obviously not supposed to be the star of the film, and I felt doubly sorry for Jean Reno, who is so effortlessly cool that this just falls off him like water off the back of a duck. Of special note is Maria Pitillo as the love interest / spunky heroine - as a shrieking, whining harridan you'll be wishing for her to be eaten from the moment you see her.
The real star, Godzilla itself, is just a big blank slate - you neither feel sorry for the poor beast, nor hate him. Whereas the Japanese version of the monster was charming despite obviously being a man in a suit, here Godsie is just a big effect.
As for the rest of it, what can be said?
