Godzilla Reviews

September 7, 2011
Despite some clever and exciting sequences, though, this $120 million epic of reconstituted Atomic Age trash... lumbers more than it thrills.

Despite all the flash and filigree, this monster movie is curiously - and conspicuously - lacking in heart.

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

"Godzilla"... is an overblown action monstrosity with no surprises, no exhilaration and no thrills.

The only question worth asking about this $120 million wad of popcorn is a commercial one. How much further will the dumbing down of the event movie have to go before the audience stops buying tickets?

You have to absorb such a film, not consider it. But my brain rebelled, and insisted on applying logic where it was not welcome.

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

The movie is soggy, murky, and depressing -- a joyless and redundant experience that leaves one in a ghastly mood.

The script isn't just "dumbed down," it's lobotomized. Godzilla lives and dies on special effects alone.
