    Synopsis


    Godzilla
    Dedicated to Tomoyuki Tanaka (1910-1997), who produced the 1954 original and sequels, the Devlin/Emmerich interpretation displays a redesign of Godzilla, now a large lizard mutated after fallout from French nuclear tests. A blinding flash of white light fills the Eastern sky. Thousands of miles away, the Pacific Ocean churns, engulfing a freighter. On another part of the globe, giant footsteps plow a path through miles of Panamanian forests, Tahitian villages, and Jamaican beaches. In the Ukraine, biologist Dr. Niko Tatopoulos (Matthew Broderick), with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, is examining the impact of radiation on Chernobyl earthworms. Colonel Hicks (Kevin Dunn) and a military team escort Niko to check out giant claw marks on the beached freighter; they're joined by paleontologists Elsie Chapman (Vicki Lewis) and Mendel Craven (Malcolm Danare). Blood and giant-size footprints indicate "some sort of enormous reptile." French secret agent Philippe Roache talks to the freighter's only survivor, who keeps repeating, "Gojira...Gojira." Tatopoulos et al arrive in Manhattan's Fulton Fish Market where Godzilla surfaces, moving on to the NYC financial district where Mayor Ebert (Michael Lerner) is speaking. Ambitious Audrey Timmonds (Maria Pitillo), who works for TV news anchor Charles Caiman (Harry Shearer), is Niko's former girlfriend, and she uses this to her professional advantage. As the wave of destruction continues, Niko and Roache track the creature through the evacuated city and discover Godzilla's eggs about to hatch in Madison Square Garden. They are followed by Audrey and TV cameraman Victor "Animal" Palotti (Hank Azaria), and soon the hatching Godzilla offspring prowl the Garden corridors, leading to a final showdown. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

      It's an alright monster movie

      This movie shouldn't have been called Godzilla when the monster looks nothing like him. Roland Emmerich disrespected the original source material. The monster doesn't have Atomic Breath, runs away from the military and dies from freaking missiles. That's just stupid. The only thing Roland Emmerich got right about Godzilla is his roar. I positively like the movie but I have my dislikes. My likes are the effects, action and the CGI. I hate the fact that it's called Godzilla when the monster looks nothing like him. I don't like the cast of the movie. The characters are stupid and forgettable. Some of them are out of place and annoying. Matthew Broderick is not cool enough to be in a monster movie. Why do they even make the slogan, Size Does Matter? If size matters, why is the monster so much smaller and weaker than the real Godzilla. Gareth Edwards did a way better job making the American Godzilla than Roland Emmerich. There's no such thing as a New York Godzilla. Roland Emmerich did great making a monster but he shouldn't have named it, Godzilla.

      Solid Blu-Ray for fans of the film

      I will always have a soft spot for this movie, sure it's the Godzilla movie no one liked or wanted, but as a young boy when this came out, I grew up a fan of the director and still enjoyed this. Yes I'm in the minority, but I take this schlocky 90's monster movie instead of that overly serious, flat and joyless 2014 movie of the same name. The movie has not looked or definitely sounded better than it does on this blu-ray.

      This movie like I the other Godzilla movies is better than I expected I got the action which is awesome the fact the Godzilla died at the end of the show is some reason why a lot of fans do not like it missiles cannot kill Godzilla that was very disappointing but I feel that for a hyjiru it was a good movie go Hawks and kiss rules.

      It's a Godzilla movie, so don't expect anything but a big, loud monster tearing up the place. With that expectation, then this is certainly what I want in a Godzilla movie. It's also my first 4K master and I must say, it looks amazing. I have yet to buy a 4K TV, but this certainly piques my interest.

      Im a huge Godzilla fan, collector, I dont wanna own this movie but i have to, i own all the others on bluray. Having the 4k version is good so i can at least see the movie in its finest form. If it wasnt for the Godzilla name, it would be a good monster movie.

      I was so excited in 1998 to see this in the theater. It's a crud movie all the way through. I had the previous released blu ray version and upgraded to see how it looked. Not sure if there is much improvement. The movie still stinks just as much.

      This Godzilla was so no good that Japan even had their Godzilla kill this one's Godzilla. Not even a 4k bluray transfer can save it. I guess it's alright for kids and people who don't know any better.
