Yhe movie sorely misses the quirky charm of "Independence Day's" Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum and the story never captures the heart.

Save your seven bucks and visit the Big Apple's other green giant, Lady Liberty.

The picture's fatal flaw is its inability to give us any consistent sense of Godzilla's size."

It's just another humdrum monster movie with Godzilla stapled on the marketing for the name recognition.

Broderick is like the proverbial deer in headlights . . . .

Despite some clever and exciting sequences, though, this $120 million epic of reconstituted Atomic Age trash... lumbers more than it thrills.

It's a horrendously long, poorly acted, unoriginal piece of crap that made me sad to be a Japanese-American.

Despite all the flash and filigree, this monster movie is curiously - and conspicuously - lacking in heart.
February 14, 2008
A great lumbering beast that has no personality, has size but no power.

After a promising start, the movie falls apart almost as soon as Godzilla arrives in Manhattan.

The look of the film and its F/X are interesting to watch and, if a less stupid script were involved, might have been part of a pretty good flick.

A great popcorn movie doesn't have to be well-constructed, all it has to do is to thoroughly entertain you for 2 hours -- "Godzilla" doesn't do that.

This is the view from the end of the world -- we look on the smoking ruin of Manhattan and shrug and eat our popcorn.

Godzilla ... is so poorly written and so un-original that it makes Independence Day sound like Shakespeare.

Where's stock footage of Raymond Burr when you need it?

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.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

Unspeakably boring and despicable. How anyone could possibly like such a piece of wretched excrement is beyond my comprehension.

By the time the climax comes around we are sick of Godzilla.
