    This is the original Godzilla film as shown to US audiences. I've only watched the US release thus far so I can't comment on how the Japanese version differs. I can't help but feel that the original movie was spliced together with an American actor delivering his scenes outside of the original story. Regardless, this is the original monster film that led to some of the best sci-fi B Cheese of my childhood and probably a good many reading this review.

    I remember loving to watch these monster movies as a kid. They were just so cool. I didn't realize I hadn't seen the original until I watched this version of Godzilla. While I enjoyed watching this B&W movie, I thought Burr's narration could have been handled better. He didn't sound like he was really into this movie. Oh well. It was still fun to watch. I was a bit surprised at the ending, though. Not going to spoil it.

    This is a great re-release of one of my childhoods all time favorites. The neat part is that it also has the original movies "Gojira" from Japan that had Raymond Burr (One of my Favorite Actors) cut in and of course used English over tracking instead of subtitles. The message is still vital, a little heavy handed, but still stands the test of time.

    Consider when this film was originally released, you'll get as much entertainment as you can expect. It's great to see how the franchise started but a lot of moments in this film are just laughable. It's a great time for anyone who can appreciate the pleasurable humor in bad films. With that said, I loved it
