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

When a cross-promotional deal with Anheuser-Busch was cancelled, visual effects artists had to digitally "erase" all Budweiser labels seen on beer bottles in the film. See more »
(at around 2h) During the part where Godzilla has the cab in his mouth, the back windshield is perfectly fine, yet earlier on, the windshield is broken. See more »

Various effects that appeared as green film scratches (but were not, in fact, scratches) showed up periodically over the credits. 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
