Excerpt: After a nuclear test on a remote island, a normal lizard is transformed into a mythical beast of harrowing proportions, GODZILLA ( insert echo). Aboard a huge fishing boat, a crew of Japanese fisher-men is thrown into the sea after Godzilla smashes their ship and steals their fishies to eat.
Excerpt: Godzilla, as a character, represents a psychedelic smorgasbord of entertainment. From his opening stomp through 1950s Tokyo amongst desolate lighting into his cozy comfort food misadventures of the kooky ’60s, Godzilla became entrenched in Japanese iconography.
Conclusion: 'Godzilla' has one of the more kick-ass sound mixes that I've ever heard on the format, and while that is saying something, it doesn't eclipse the fact that the movie it accompanies is lousy, the video is only adequate, and the supplements (both traditional and HD) suck.
Excerpt: The crowning moment of Godzilla comes as Niko Tatopoulos (Matthew Broderick) stands in New York, and Godzilla bursts from within the city sewers. It is the first full reveal, as the creature was hidden for the three previous attacks in the film.
