Co-writer and producer Dean Devlin admitted to "screwing up" Godzilla in a 2012 interview, where he claimed he had been a fan of the character since childhood. In a 2014 interview, he said that the script's two biggest faults were that Godzilla wasn't handled as a character but a mere animal, and that the backstories of the human characters were explained too late in the movie, by which time the viewers had already made up their minds about them. Nevertheless, though accepting the blame for the script's faults, he thinks that the hate against the movie had been blown out of proportion. See more »
(at around 11 mins) When Dr. Niko is standing in his "sample" (i.e., the footprint), Colonel Hicks uses a ladder to climb out of the footprint, but they never descended a ladder to get into the footprint in the first place. A long shot of the scene reveals that all sides of the print are vertical - there is no sloped side that they could have walked down. See more »
Does exactly what it says on the box ............ ENTERTAIN...
Who are these people comparing this to the older Godzilla movies.. ? There is absolutely no comparison....this film stands on it's own and is a fast action paced, highly entertaining movie with special effects that were the best at the time.
You have to smile at the people who take the Godzilla mythology far too seriously. I had to smile when I read some of the reviews from the die hard Godzilla fans.
Personally, I don't care. The movie, from day one was meant to be just a big effects laden action movie. It's about comic book character.
AN EXCELLENT ENTERTAINING POPCORN MOVIE........BRILLIANT
