Having survived radioactive fallout and radiation from the dropping of the atomic bomb, the King of the Monsters returns to the city that never sleeps; wreaking havoc upon New York City as the US Military attempts to intervene in Roland Emmerich's blockbuster adaptation of Godzilla (1998).
Critics along with everyday moviegoers have been casting an unwarranted amount of hatred down upon this silver screen reimagining from Independence Day's Roland Emmerich; somehow garnering an abysmal 16% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Having said that, I need to be honest and crystal clear; this is not Godzilla - it may bear the title - but this isn't Godzilla. And once again having said that, this still manages to be considered one heck of an entertaining high octane thrill ride; showcasing well crafted action sequences and a decent enough score composed by David Arnold to boot.
Emmerich's 1998 Godzilla does stumble from time to time, though; featuring moderately campy scenes and also sporadic instances of ill-timed comedic relief as well as not the most engaging of characters (with exceptions, of course). And granted some of the CGI on screen visuals are starting to look dated.
So in conclusion; this should not have been entitled Godzilla and it's more than a stones throw away from achieving absolute perfection, but strictly as a popcorn escapism romp in addition to a late spring big budgeted adventure flick, Roland Emmerich's Godzilla (1998) is worth checking out.
