It's a good Godzilla movie...but not a perfect Godzilla movie. It held back a little bit by adding more of the human story, and not showing Godzilla as much.

Edwards has clearly spent a lot of time trying to make Godzilla spectacular, showing him glide beneath the waves, and restoring his original power a blast of bright blue radiation. He really is Hiroshima made flesh.

The plot is a mess, it drags a bit and the creature doesn't always stay the same size from scene to scene. But Godzilla is a fun movie with a lot of personality, and in this case, personality goes a long way.

This is a fantastic homage to monster movies of yore and is bound to go down as a modern classic. Go Godzilla!

Godzilla is an enjoyable kaiju flick that neatly disposes of the bad memory of that awful 1998 version that we all pretend didn't happen anyway.

Thin characters aside, this is a terribly fun, engaging popcorn flick when focused on the creatures themselves.

There are a few moments that almost redeem this monstrosity into an entertaining movie. They do not a good movie make, however, but they're all you're going to get, so suck on that, along with your $20 popcorn.

The latest Godzilla film is truly one for the fans - especially Showa fans. . There's a childlike sense of splendor to it, and is a great homage to all the prior "versus" films.

This Godzilla manages to rise above its human flaws, and become the massive modern monster movie it needs to be.

Every time Edwards' Godzilla rears up, you stiffen with excitement. Every time he roars, Edwards wants you to feel it and wince.

Big lizard, big budget, big fun.

'Godzilla' doesn't feel cynical; there's a sense of joy to the picture, of honest-to-God fun, which separates it from many of its summer movie brethren.
June 6, 2016
In a studio system that so heavily relies on playing all their cards at once, Edwards' restraint is half the fun -- the other half being the fully-satisfying climax.

"Godzilla" circa 2014 towers over the majority of its monster movie brethren.
January 7, 2016
While I don't necessarily think it revolutionizes the idea of the summer blockbuster, on a technical level, Edwards has created something of a visual masterpiece with Godzilla & it's an absolutely a worthy new chapter for "The King of the Monsters."

A certain nihilism darkens this Godzilla and puts it within atomic-breath distance of the original Gojira.
January 5, 2015
Gareth Edwards' take on the classic monster franchise has much of what a great blockbuster should, and I wonder if it won't be a Jurassic Park for millennial teenagers.
January 5, 2015
This isn't a thinking man's Godzilla, exactly, but it's certainly clever where it counts.
January 5, 2015
For those with a high tolerance for action-movie bingo and CGI carnage, Godzilla's reverence for the King of the Monsters oozes from every track mark, snapping cable and thundering footstep.
January 5, 2015
We guess if you're up for a big, state-of-the-art, kick-ass 3-D giant monster movie, Godzilla gets the job done.
