Audience Reviews for Godzilla, King of the Monsters!

  • Aug 17, 2017
    Right after his gig with Alfred Hitchcock (Rear Window) and immeadiately before his career making turn as teevee's uber-lawyer Perry Mason, Raymond Burr spent a day filming and was consequently half-assedly edited into a previously made Japanese feature about a atomically enhanced lizard that goes on a rampage ... and film history was made. Certainly it hasn't held up (the Japanese parts typically emotionally overdone while the American parts are just the opposite) but still, over 60 years on, it's just as exciting watching a Japanese nightmare, a real firebreathing dragon up on two feet and simply destroying the city for the hell of if. And so this work will always be great stuff.

    The definitive monster movie, Godzilla (or Gojira as it's known in Japan) has not aged perfectly, but it's still incredibly fun and exciting 56 years later. This movie could never be matched by any other monster movie, not even by the countless sequels and remakes it spawned. If you're looking for some campy destructive fun, this is the movie to watch.

    The original film is a masterpiece. The American version has famous actor Raymond Burr edited into the Japanese footage....which makes the Japanese version far superior to the edited US release. Either version is still good fun and this is the kaiju movie that STILL rules them all.

    This debased Americanized version of the original Japanese film, re-edited to include Raymond Burr as a reporter, is relatively well made but full of inconsistencies, bad re-dubbing and terrible exposition, with him annoyingly narrating all the time what we can easily see.
