It's hard to say just where this monstrosity went so horribly, horribly wrong. From the uneven tone to the completely scattershot plot to the 2nd half of the film which turns into some sort of bizarre JURASSIC PARK ripoff, Roland Emmerich's Americanized GODZILLA is a disaster of epic proportions. Greeted with great critical derision upon its release, it is perhaps even worse in retrospect.
this movie sucks compared to the real thing, but if you isolate it from what it was supposed to be, it's actually pretty good, i've got to say one of my fave movies of all time, why? because i learned to diferenciate this Godzilla from the Japanese Godzilla and now i like them both, too me they only have the same name. to me they are two different monsters with no connection between each other, besides name.
