The new, improved 1998 Godzilla is big, loud, fast and expensive. But at heart it's just a silly monster movie for kids.

Emmerich's hype-driven Godzilla appears unstoppable. Matinee audiences will surely be screaming, "We're off to see the lizard!"

A monster movie with a surprisingly potent moral message.

Even if it isn't particularly original, it is still extraordinarily effective.

Forget the plot, though: All these guys know how to do is high-tech bang-bang, and at times they do it pretty well.

Ultimately, your tolerance of all the crap in "Godzilla" will depend on how much of a monster fan you are. As for me, despite it's lumbering storyline, terrible pacing and disposable characters, I still had fun.

Grab your bucket of popcorn and check your thinking cap at the door. Godzilla is pure summer candy.

GODZILLA poaches a lot of imagery from JURASSIC PARK and then simply amplifies it under its self-promoted precept 'Size Does Matter'

Godzilla '98 is big and it's noisy, and while it's not particularly good, it is just good enough.

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.

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

Violent updated classic could be too intense for young kids.

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