In 1933 New York, an overly ambitious movie producer coerces his cast and hired ship crew to travel to mysterious Skull Island, where they encounter Kong, a giant ape who is immediately smitten with leading lady Ann Darrow.
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

(at around 49 mins) Godzilla wasn't supposed to have his atomic breath at all in this movie until an outraged fan poll demanded it. A scene was later filmed and animated where Godzilla could breathe fire. This caused even more outrage. See more »
"Cold blooded animal" does not mean its blood is cold; it means it does not regulate temperature by itself. To move a mass of that size, you would need a lot of energy and you probably would dissipate a lot of heat (this goes for the tracking missiles, and the fact that the animal seems to move very fast in cold water). Also, it would probably be easy to track on land with seismic triangulation. 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
