Critic Reviews for Godzilla vs. Gigan

  • Although Godzilla doesn't really cut it in the special effects department, he does have a certain lumbering charm. So does the script.

  • The overall tone of Godzilla vs. Gigan skews a little more childish than usual. It has the same sugar-buzz 9-year-old-boy energy that makes the series so appealing, but it seems a little less focused.

  • Among the most efficient and exciting of the series since the 1954 original.

  • This one takes awhile to get going, but as payoff you get Godzilla and Anguiras fighting new enemy Gigan and Ghidorah on one of the series' most unique battlefields: a Godzilla-themed amusement park.

  • For a film that's awfully busy and awfully manic, it turns out to be quite a dreadful slog.

    February 1, 2014 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…
  • A substantial improvement over its predecessor, Godzilla vs. the smog monster (1971), this twelfth Godzilla movie is typically silly but features a rousing, extended monster battle to save the Earth from evil aliens.

Audience Reviews for Godzilla vs. Gigan

    I love the design of Gigan. He is a great monster and an awesome villain. But every scene witha human being will make you cringe.

    Godzilla and a giant alien chicken. Great stuff. It's back to the very basic for Godzilla after many were disappointed by the previous effort (I loved it). It kind of throws away everything Godzilla started as. Now we have a fairly kid friendly film, in which aliens design an amusement park in the hopes of controlling some of the monsters from monster island. A manga artist uncovers this bizarre plot and soon the aliens release their own monster, Gigan. Fun fights and frolics abound, even if these movies are getting rather crowded.
