Format: VHS Tape
For any movie to merit a sequel, or 22 sequels for that matter, it has to be special. "Gojira" stands on the lofty summit with "Dracula"; "Frankenstein"; "Forbidden planet"; "War of the Worlds" and "2001: A Space Odyssey" as one of the great science fiction films of all time. What we have here is a synergy of a monster tale, a moral dilemma, and a powerful anti-war message. Together the film becomes a visionary tale of man trying to survive the fury of the Atom bomb made flesh. It examines the consequences of our sins, and asks directly if we have learned from our mistakes and what we are willing to do to prevent making those same mistakes again. "Gojira" is about the green big one, yes, but it also examines like no other film in the series the consequences of the monster's rampages. "Gojira" was made to be a drama first, a science fiction fantasy second. The film portrays real human suffering because of Godzilla's depredations. This draws the viewer wholeheartedly into the struggle of the Japanese people as they try to survive this catastrophe. As a drama, "Gojira" invests the time to develop characters who we can in turn invest in. Dr. Serizawa's dilemma at using his invention to save Japan at the possible cost of the world is brilliantly acted. As is Emiko Yamane's torment at having to betray her fiancée to a man she really loves in order to save Japan from Godzilla. The film doesn't shy away from messy solutions either. Like most science fiction films, the scientist uses an invention to destroy the monster at the end of the film. Unlike most science fiction films, the scientist chooses to die with his invention rather than let it be used for evil ends.Read more ›

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER on June 14 2006
Format: DVD
The title pretty much says it all. Indeed, Godzilla is king of the monsters. This is in many ways the greatest of the Godzilla movies, particularly those of the original series. This first film was unique; indeed, some may not realize just how serious-minded a movie this was. The theme of this movie can clearly be seen as an indictment of the use of nuclear weapons; the images of a devastated Tokyo bespeak themselves closely of the real-life scenes in Hiroshima and Nagasaki following the atomic bombs dropped on those cities. Coming just over a decade after the end of World War II, the message condemning nuclear proliferation is understandable and easily understood. Nuclear tests gave birth to Godzilla, unleashing a havoc that proved all but impossible to contain. Only a scientific miracle of sorts and a good bit of luck saved Tokyo (and presumably the rest of the world) from the unspeakable horror unleashed by man's experiments with a weapon of mass destruction.

We tend to see Godzilla now in comical terms, due largely to later films starring the big lizard, but the debut of Godzilla must truly have seemed horrific to film audiences in the 1950s. The monster's first appearance, as his head rises up over the crest of a hill, is very well conceived and impressively presented. For the most part, the special effects in this film are excellent. The fact that this movie is in black and white helps a great deal in this regard, I believe. In no way does Godzilla appear as a man wearing a rubber suit; the face and mouth seemed particularly well done and realistic to me, and I was most impressed by the way the creature's eyes seemed to bug out at times.

The only reason i didnt rate this as a 5 because of Raymond Burr
splice part.First off the reason they put him in there because
they wanto up the sale on godzilla in the U.S. and show more interest.This Movie tells it all that all I have to Say.Costume,
music,suspence and etc all good.Must have G fan Movie.
P.S.:Suggest you find the original japanese verison which is
longer and no Raymon Burr

There's nothing like seeing one of the most classic monster movies right from the start. I still can't get over Raymond Burr's portrayel of Steve Martin. The scene where he persuades a doctor's daughter to help destroy Godzilla is simply impressive. I wouldn't mind the captions for the Japanese being in English considering I can't read Japanese characters. But then nobody's perfect.
I recommend this movie to any Godzilla fans or to anybody who just collects monster movies like "The Blob", "War of the Gargantuas", and "Reptilicus".

By A Customer on Dec 26 2003
Format: DVD
The Simitar two-sided dvd contains a fullscreen version
on one side, and a so-called "theatrical" "letterbox" version on the other.
WARNING: The "letterbox" version is misleading - it's not in true widescreen at all. The top and bottom of the picture was merely chopped off, a fact which becomes painfully obvious when comparing scenes of this version with the "fullscreen". But there are some decent extras on this dvd nonetheless, such as the documentary on movie monsters, and the Godzilla art gallery.
The Sony "Classic Media" dvd release contains the fullscreen version, and virtually no extras, when compared to the Simitar edition. But having found it in a bargain bin for $5, it was an okay deal, with the quality of the movie itself comparable and seemingly slightly better (such as it is, scratches and all) than the Simitar release. Skip the Dolby-Surround sound options on both releases - the Dolby mono is a bit clearer and less distorted.
This classic movie deserves far better treatment on dvd.
C'mon big shot video producers/sellers - if you put the original "Gojira" with English subtitles on dvd,
people will buy it. Maybe pair it up with the second
"Fire Lizard" feature.
