  • Summary: Another thick slice of Emmerich cheese, best sampled with a pinch of salt. It's clearly ridiculous and only works because it's so tongue in cheek. Watched as a comedy, it's pretty entertaining!

  • Summary: This one just took itself way too serious. Plays like a 'Jurassic Park' knockoff and the effects don't even hold up as good as that film. It's just a dumb disaster movie down to it's core, with no redeeming factors.

  • Summary: A wasted effort to remake the original. First of all Godzilla's image has been changed, secondly the characters seemed indestructible and lastly the dialogue was just awful. So many impossible scenes that make you cringe in disgust as to how they were able to survive a building filled with Godzilla's babies. Lacks the luster of action sci-fi's and just ruins the talents of Jean Reno and Matthew Broderick. This Godzilla deservingly falters.

  • Summary: The only interesting and scary part of this film was the egg nest laid in Madison Square Garden. Everything else is pseudo-scientific mumbo-jumbo, shoddy special effects, and some forced and sappy romantic moments.

Review - Godzilla (1998)

  • Excerpt: When a mutant lizard attacks New York City, Dr. Niko Tatopoulos (Matthew Broderick) tries to study the creature and learn how to stop it in the American re-imagining of “Godzilla.” From the director of “Independence Day” and later “The Patriot” comes Roland Emmerich’s vision of a monster from a movie series he doesn’t even like. What’s more is the studio let him do whatever he wanted with it, thus enraging fans and even non-fans of the original Japanese films.

  • Summary: I prefer the guy in the suit - at least that was amusing and fun to watch where as this "updated" Godzilla left me yawning and uninterested. Stop with the remakes, it just isn't worth it.

  • Conclusion: This is really not so bad as people make out, its not a great movie no but its still fun to watch, you can look at this movie anyway you want depending on if you have watched any of the 28 Japanese movies, in terms of being cheesy this 98 version is no more cheesy in terms of acting, some of the earlier movies were more serious but the later ones had a lot of slapstick moments and in terms of effects its 50/50 some of the originals of course have great practical man in a...
