Tôhô Co.

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
