Dedicated to Tomoyuki Tanaka (1910-1997), who produced the 1954 original and sequels, the Devlin/Emmerich interpretation displays a redesign of Godzilla, now a large lizard mutated after fallout from French nuclear tests. A blinding flash of white light fills the Eastern sky. Thousands of miles away, the Pacific Ocean churns, engulfing a freighter. On another part of the globe, giant footsteps plow a path through miles of Panamanian forests, Tahitian villages, and Jamaican beaches. In the

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
It's just another humdrum monster movie with Godzilla stapled on the marketing for the name recognition.
Godzilla ... is so poorly written and so un-original that it makes Independence Day sound like Shakespeare.
If only one could fast-forward past the idiot characters to the parts where the creature nests in Madison Square Garden, crushes Fifth Avenue and chomps a taxicab.
...Godzilla literally runs away from battle, and is presented in such a way that the audience is actually supposed to feel sorry for him! I don't think so.
Unspeakably boring and despicable. How anyone could possibly like such a piece of wretched excrement is beyond my comprehension.
If you like your movies big, loud, and shallow, you'll be like a pig in slop.
How many shots were embarrassingly copied from Jurassic Park? "Please think of that much better movie while you're watching this one!!"
C'mon. Nobody goes to see Godzilla for the performances. This is Raging Lizard, not Raging Bull.
Emmerich and Devlin's 'Godzilla' turns out to be almost as overblown as the 1977 revision of 'King Kong.' The only thing that might send you screaming from the theater is the horrifying Puff Daddy song heard over the end credits.
I wasn't expecting much of anything from this film, but as Hollywood is teaching me: my hopes are still way too high.
Esta llena de situaciones tan inverosímiles que a veces uno se pregunta a quien deberían desaparecer de la pantalla
Did they hit a home run? In terms of computer-generated monsters wreaking havoc, yes. In terms of believable characters and a convincing story, not quite.

- Audrey Timmonds: Oh, wait. I don't get it. If he's the first of his kind,how can he be pregnant? Doesn't he need a mate?
- Dr. Niko Tatopoulos: Not if he reproduces asexually.
- Audrey Timmonds: Where's the fun in that?
