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
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
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars What a disaster November 13, 2006
By Jason
And yet, I can't seem to really hate this 'Godzilla'. Hell, if we were to rate the flick based merely on Godzilla's aesthetic, I'd give it at least four stars. Can you tell I've never cared [enough to venture into] the original Godzilla films? I seem to be one of the only ones who genuinely thinks Godzilla's new look and movement is quite awesome; so much of the hate I've read regarding this issue seems to come from an attachment to the original design, laid way in the East many years ago. 'Guess that works in my favor as far as "opening up" to this film........ if that's a good thing.

The first half of the film is watchable, the second half isn't, by and large. As soon as they hit the baby Godzilla's in the stadium, it goes from decent to absolutely horrendous. At that point, it becomes so uncommonly absurd you can't help but wonder how they actually made it through filming the entire set piece without succumbing to their own criticisms. Same goes for most everything that follows.

Personally, though, I found one good reason to watch this version of 'Godzilla' was for a mere demonstration of the visual effects, and how they rank along the timeline with regards to the subject of CGI in cinema. Far as I recall, I remember walking out of the theater when first seeing 'Godzilla' in 1998 and being pretty astonished, thinking that they were near perfect, and topped only by 1997's 'Starship Troopers'. It was actually pretty staggering, then, when Godzilla started to rampage through NYC as I watched this DVD the other day, because in that whole event inparticular, the CGI just doesn't hold up at all.

This movie is mockery of the true Godzilla movies and downgrades them. Its like they took half of Jurassic Park storyline. I wouldn't recommend this movie.
