Product Description

Amazon.ca

As "gigantic monster reptile attacks New York" movies go, you've got to admit that Godzilla delivers the goods, although its critical drubbing and box-office disappointment were arguably deserved. It's a shameless, uninspired crowd pleaser that's content to serve up familiar action with the advantage of really fantastic special effects, and if you expect nothing more you'll be one among millions of satisfied customers. There's really no other way to approach it--you just have to accept the fact that Independence Day creators Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin are unapologetic plagiarists, incapable of anything more than mindless spectacle that can play in any cinema in the world without dubbing or subtitles. The whole movie plays out like a series of highlights stolen from previous blockbusters of the 1990s; it's little more than a rehash of the Jurassic Park movies. The derivative script is so trivial that it's unworthy of comment, apart from a few choice laughs and the casting of Michael Lerner as New York's mayor, whose name is Ebert and who closely resembles a certain well-known movie critic. Perhaps that's a clever hint that this movie's essentially critic-proof. It's stupid but it's fun, and for most audiences that's a fitting definition of mainstream Hollywood entertainment. --Jeff Shannon

This movie's biggest problem is its title. I can't imagine how much money it took for Toho to permit American filmmakers to completely reinvent Godzilla in such an appalling way. As a Godzilla purist, I have to say that the monster in this film is a CGI imposter who has little if nothing to do with the real thing. Godzilla does not have remarkably svelte, feminine legs and he most certainly does not lay eggs - even the son of Godzilla was adopted. I was willing to play along with Toho in 1985 and pretend that all of the Godzilla sequels up to that point never really existed, but I'm not going to accept this Americanized monster as Godzilla. It would have been much better (and probably much cheaper) just to call this thing Reptilosaurus or Freakin' Huge Monster or The Monster That Ate New York - anything but Godzilla.

All my Godzilla issues aside, this really isn't that bad of a movie. This was intended to be a "popcorn" movie, a summer action blockbuster that sought merely to entertain - and I did find it entertaining. Heck, I even liked the French guy, and that almost never happens. Of course, it was the French who got New York into this mess with their atomic tests, but here they actually recognize that a problem exists and do something to rectify the situation - that, even more than the CGI Godzilla's wake of destruction - is how you know this is pure fiction. Matthew Broderick carries the film pretty well as "the worm guy," and that Maria Pitillo is just cute as a button. Harry Shearer's rather needless role as the smarmy local news anchor is interesting only because of the Simpsons connection (apparently, his real voice is that of Principal Skinner).

Whether or not you perceive him as a hero or villain, there's no doubt that Godzilla has become a global name. The old Godzilla movies have always been known for their outlandish storylines, cheesy special effects, fake costumes and sets, and overall lack of realism. But in the end, they were still surprisingly entertaining. Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich try to achieve that same notion with their own version of the monster. The 'campy but fun' formula worked well with the old Godzilla, but it fails miserably with this one. The old Godzilla movies may have been cheesy, but at least they aspired to be good, fun and charming. They weren't shallow and soulless and all were made with a technique that worked. You can tell the filmmakers tried. Too bad it's not the same case here.
It's difficult to watch this movie and not compare it to the original Toho creation. The Toho Godzilla movies featured gibberish plots and obviously fake laughable production, but at least they didn't insult your intelligence. This Godzilla film showcases absolutely no hint of logic, especially regarding the size of the creature. We can see Godzilla towering over New York's tallest skyscrapers yet it can fit in the subway tunnels and evenly distribute eggs inside Madison Square Garden. As usual, the military is always determined to destroy a monster in a monster movie, but here they are made to look like a bunch of bumbling idiots, always being outwitted and losing track of a creature that size in Manhattan. Godzilla has the ability to breathe fire, yet he doesn't even use it. The characters serve no purpose here except to witness Godzilla get assaulted and killed. It's one ridiculous action scene after another.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the original but still good. March 29 2006
Format:DVD
If you are looking for the original Godzilla, this is not it. But if you want a fun, entertaining film than you will like this.
I have this on Dvd but not the special edition. Can anyone tell me if there is any extras on this that aren't on the older release?

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun but they should not use Godzilla or Gojira Nov. 23 2013
By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Just like the movie "Them!" that had an A-bomb in the desert create big ants, this one is the story of an A-bomb set off by the French creating a jumbo lizard.

You know or can guess the story. The attraction for this movie is the new actors and ability to make new spooky situations as Dr. Niko Tatopoulos (Matthew Broderick) the worm doctor teams up with Philippe Roaché (Jean Reno) the insurance agent, and Audrey Timmonds (Maria Pitillo) the worm doctor's ex-girlfriend, team up to remove the threat before anyone finds out it is there. How are they doing?

5.0 out of 5 stars A great flic, just a poor Godzilla flic Sept. 13 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the U.S. Godzilla movie, but I just can't get past it being Godzilla. Great special F/X... just call it something else and edit out the Mathew Broderick parts.
P.S. I can't tell the 4K version from the original BluRay (without actually A/Bing them)

5.0 out of 5 stars 4K Optimized, Baby!!! Sept. 2 2013
By Larry
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
the actual Blu-Ray isn`t 4k. 4k is 2 times the resolution at 1080p. it`s optimized to make it look better on 4k telvisions.

the actual movie is still in 1080p as a standard Blu-Ray is. it`s just has tweeked sharpness, colour, and sound. Pretty much a remastered version.
