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?

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.

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!

*** This review may contain spoilers***

If only the creature had only been named something else and not promoted as the "Godzilla successor", the movie would have done much better.

I saw the movie in a theater almost as soon as it came out in 1998 and I own a VHS copy. It's been about thirteen (13) years since I've seen "Godzilla [1998]" (hereafter G98), but I generally have favorable memories of it. G98 is no masterpiece; it has its flaws, but it is far from being an abomination. The movie's major strength and flaw simultaneously is Pseudo-Godzilla himself (or is it herself - oh, the androgyny!). As a mythic force of nature, the creature falls short; it is vulnerable to heavier artillery, it is not mindlessly destructive, and it is willing to stoop to Tatopoulos's (Matthew Broderick's) level, like a man wishing to communicate with an ant. As a super-beast, Pseudo-Godzilla is more impressive; it is extremely powerful, fast, agile, clever, and tenacious in self-defence and of its raptor-like brood. Perhaps G98 was not quite the blockbuster audiences anticipated because Pseudo-Godzilla was cast as a plausible animal with plausible animal behaviors, instead of an unstoppable, supernatural legend. Nevertheless, when Pseudo-Godzilla is striding across New York, you feel a tingle of awe; he's so colossal all you see are his muscular legs trampling across the street.

However, this Pseudo-Godzilla seems to be agoraphobic; he prefers to burrow and live in subterranean passages (even though, as an irradiated iguana, it's not really built for digging). Instead of terrorizing the world, all this titan wants to do is eat fish (again, not part of a herbivorous iguana's diet) and raise its young.

This truly is GINO(Godzilla in name only).

Gone is the fear of nuclear holocaust, gone the fear of the unstoppable force of nature known as Gojira(Godzilla). Gone is the giant who is indifferent to the weapons of man. Gone is the terriying atomic|nuclear ray.
Replaced is a giant iguana that eats fish and runs away alot. The military is portrayed as morons, too many inconsistencies:
Can't lock on to him because he is cold...HUH? Even slugs give off body heat.
Mayor barking out orders, the mayor would have no say since the city would be under marshall law.
It is pregnant? Godzilla is supposed to be unique.
You did not have that sense of fear or dread and drama, just mindless CGI.
For a good chunk of the film little raptpor ripoffs are running around.
Isn't this a giant monster flick???
Obvious alien and Jurassic Park ripoffs.

People can make fun of the man in suite, this Godzilla looked like Gumby. He looked like playstation graphics in some scenes moved super fast, like it is rushed off the screen. No fluid movement. CGI is hit or miss.
Its gets lost in NY?? In a city of millions?? He burrows???
Acting was hammed up, most of the actors were Simpsons voices. Ay Caramba!

Godzilla had no presense, it was just a scared creature running away alot.
Godzilla v Hedorah was superior to this, least he put up a fight.
If you want a good monster flick that is an edge of your seat movie I strongly recommend getting a copy of Cloverfield when that comes out.
Audrey Timmonds was correct ITS GOJIRA YOU MORONS. This is not Godzilla.
