Fortunately, this new version is miles better than the last time a Hollywood director tried his hand at bringing the Japanese monster to life.

While it has its problems - the most severe of which is Aaron Taylor-Johnson's performance - you can forgive it because, well, it's Godzilla fighting another giant monster. What more can you ask for?

Repent! The end is nigh! For unto them shall come a lizard with a beer belly, barfing atomic breath and bringing despair and sadness to Heisenberg from "Breaking Bad!"

It is well worth seeing on the big screen.

Instead of numbing us with monster action, Edwards teases us, stringing us along before finally hitting us with the epic payoff. And boy is it ever worth it.

Though a lovingly-made and (relatively) worthwhile franchise update, the Nolanesque seriousness becomes pointless and distracting.

Godzilla is certainly a remarkable improvement on the Roland Emmerich film but there could have been more Godzilla.

Like Honda's film, Godzilla is no malevolent presence but a force of nature. In his notes, Evans has likened Godzilla to a God. Part the seas, for He is coming.

Godzilla doesn't always work, but when it does it's an effective and visually stunning take of a contemporary myth that will surely please fans of kaiju culture. [Full review in Spanish]

A hugely entertaining blockbuster that starts strongly before roaring towards its finale. The 'King of the Monsters' has returned -- and it looks like he's here to stay.

The film suffers exposition overload and the plot threads unravel somewhat; the script by Max Borenstein veers off in one direction too many. This is no fault of the cast, a solid mix of the veteran and the new.

A slow-building summer blockbuster that rewards a patient audience with some fantastic visual sequences in the final third.

While I might not have been as gleeful as my cohort at Godzilla's appearance, I'll admit I was cheering him along, too. Silently, of course.

Godzilla emerges as a good if somewhat unexpected somber movie that stands even taller when we acknowledge all the pitfalls it avoids.

Fittingly, Godzilla does its noted work in adequately displaying the continued connection and corruption that is the conception of man versus beast and flaunts it on a grand cinematic stage for all to digest as a manifestation for contemplative hubris.

This movie has absolutely everything a great monster movie needs. Get a large popcorn, an icy-cold drink and enjoy some killer special effects.

The more time that passes from my initial screening, the less I focus on the pacing and logic issues, and the more my mind lingers on certain powerful images and set pieces.

When the film finally gets to its big climax it does deliver on its promise, but it feels less like a treat for your patience and more like an apology for the delay.

The final 40 minutes of [Godzilla] are worth the price of admission alone, even if you might have to jar yourself awake a few times on the way to it.
