He's the most spectacular creature in cinematic history, with a foot the size of a bus, a body as tall as London's Big Ben, and strength and agility the likes of which the world has never seen.

Remember taking my youngest and the Mrs to see this when it was doing the rounds -
The film tells of how after a French nuclear test in the South Pacific an Iguana nest is exposed to the fallout.
Sometime later a Japanese fishing vessel is attacked by a mysterious and very large creature, the one survivor of the vessel will later call the creature Godzilla.
When the attack is reported and giant prints are found Dr. Niko "Nick" Tatopoulos (Mathew Brodrick), an NRC scientist, is approached whilst investigating worms at the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is asked by U.S officials to investigate the incident.
Nick dismisses talk of a survivor from the Jurassic era but says samples he finds was of an unknown origin.
Soon after, the creature surfaces in New York and though showing little interest in humans causes death, destruction and chaos on a large scale, but what is it looking for?
With the military, police and officials in disarray, only the logic of Nick joined by his ex-girlfriend would-be reporter Audrey (Maria Pitillo) her colleague Victor (Hank Azaria) and French secret-service agent Philippe Roaché (Jean Reno) set about saving the city from the giant creature.
However, they'll find a nest with hundreds of ready to hatch eggs, stopping disaster begins to look more unlikely.
Who'll prevail?
I did enjoy watching the film again in truth though I have to say some of the acting left much to be desired especially in my opinion that of the lead character.
The special effects were with the ongoing destruction of New York were pretty good for the time (1998)
However, the continuity of the 4k upgrade wasn't in my view consistent, sometimes impressive, often not. ....4k upgrade rating 7/10

Good transfer..
Verified purchase
I loved the better colours and contrast from the HDR 4K transfer.. Some may argue this isn't "really Godzilla".. The purist may have a point there. As an adventure monster movie it's a decent movie.. The ATMOS soundtrack is very good however I would've preferred more prominent use of height effects .. Especially from the helicopter scenes.. That's just a minor niggle.. The subwoofer and surround speakers will get a good workout. So crank up your speakers and hang on tight.. Another movie to show off ATMOS..

Excellent product!

Arrived in excellent condition. Though the movie isn't all that good, I bought this for the nostalgia factor. I remember watching this film in awe back when I was a child, for a child hardly knows the difference between a good and a bad film.

made a mistake buying this thinking it was the new pic for this year. in this movie the monster wqas the only good thing except the idea of how godzilla came into being which was about time with outr knowledge of science and radioactive material on biological organisms etc it teaches us something about radioactive waste and the result of what could happen if we used nukes. this godzilla is not that good compared to the Japanese one who had loads of extra talents. the CGI was ok though

A magnificent film with a story-line well directed; believable was Godzilla's reality using special effects.

Fun Godzilla Film
Verified purchase
Fun film that is woefully underrated. Jean Reno is excellent as ever. Has everything you want, destruction, large monster and pathos for the creature. The creature CGI still holds up, but the rest is a bit iffy from today's standpoint (especially the helicopter chase).
Still two thumbs up!

What a classic!

The classic of the modern American version of Godzilla movies. Still the best with the finest actor of all those movies Matthew Broderick!
