A giant, reptilian monster surfaces, leaving destruction in its wake. To stop the monster (and its babies), an earthworm scientist, his reporter ex-girlfriend, and other unlikely heroes team up to save their city.
A movie crew, travelling to a mysterious island to shoot their picture, encounter a furious gorilla, taking their leading actress and forming a special relationship with her, protecting her at all costs.
Following the French atomic bomb tests in the South Pacific, an unknown creature is spotted passing eastward 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 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? Written by

In one take, a mechanical Godzilla burst through the elevator door by mistake. See more »
(at around 2h) Near the end, when the taxi is caught between Godzilla's jaws, the vehicle changes position between shots. See more »

Alright. Move on.

Various effects that appeared as green film scratches (but were not, in fact, scratches) showed up periodically over the credits. See more »
Okay, I'm going to be like everybody else and hate this just to be trendy and sheep-minded!!!
No, I don't think so! I'm still not clear why the American public despises this so much. Can you say "bandwagon"? IT IS NOT BAD AT ALL! What did you people expect? The Sound of Music??? I went in this movie to see awesome special effects, good use of digital surround sound, and stunts. AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I GOT!!! "Oh man, but the dialogue, the acting, blah blah blah". Oh yeah, I forgot THAT'S why I was seeing this movie! And I saw American Beauty for the action, Shakespeare in Love for the stunts, and Gandhi for the special effects! STOP TRYING TO DRAW BLOOD FROM A STONE! If you don't know exactly what your $9 is getting you into when you walked up to the box-office, maybe you should have stayed home and watched Nick at Nite!!!
Rating: an unashamed, much deserved 10 out of 10!!!
