When American reporter Steve Martin investigates a series of mysterious disasters off the coast of Japan, he comes face to face with an ancient creature so powerful and so terrifying, it can reduce Tokyo to a smoldering graveyard. Nuclear weapon testing resurrected this relic from the Jurassic age, and now it's rampaging across Japan. At night, Godzilla wades through Tokyo leaving death and destruction in his wake, disappearing into Tokyo Bay when his rage subsides. Coventional weapons are useless against him; but renowned scientist Dr. Serizawa has discovered a weapon that could destroy all life in the bay -- including Godzilla. But which disaster is worse, Godzilla's fury, or the death of Tokyo Bay? Written by

Tôhô released this American version of its own Gojira (1954) to Japanese audiences in 1957. The studio ballyhooed it as being a CinemaScope production, when in fact what Toho did was chop off the top and the bottom of the frame. These mutilated shots later made it into the studio's Daikaijû Baran (1958). See more »

Many prints and videos have absolutely no credits, beyond the title at the start(with a clearly video-generated copyright notice below it) and a "The End" graphic at the close. As of 2006, Classic Media's release of the film in the Gojira/Godzilla: King of the Monsters on DVD has the restored English credits. See more »
OK Godzilla king of the monsters is a very good movie. But in spite of what you might hear the 1998 remake is better. So this the sixteenth part of the series the return of Godzilla that one is better. And the twenty fourth part to the japan series Godzilla vs M.E.G.A.G.U.I.R.U.S. is also better.
Still it is a very good movie. A monster is created by the H bomb. And it is trying to destroy the world. Great story. Great special effects. Raymond Burr was great in this movie. It is not as Good as part twenty five. Godzilla M.O.T.R.A and King G.H.I.D.O.R.A.H giant monsters all out attack. Still this is a great movie. First in the series. This is the the fifth best Godzilla movie.
