Godzilla (2009)

As "gigantic monster reptile attacks New York" movies go, you’ve got to admit that Godzilla delivers the goods, although its critical drubbing and box-office disappointment were arguably deserved. It’s a shameless, uninspired crowd pleaser that’s content to serve up familiar action with the advantage of really fantastic special effects, and if you expect nothing more you’ll be one among millions of satisfied customers. There’s really no other way to approach it—you just have to accept the fact that Independence Day creators Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin are unapologetic plagiarists, incapable of anything more than mindless spectacle that can play in any cinema in the world without dubbing or subtitles. The whole movie plays out like a series of highlights stolen from previous blockbusters of the 1990s; it’s little more than a rehash of the Jurassic Park movies. The derivative script is so trivial that it’s unworthy of comment, apart from a few choice laughs and the casting of Michael Lerner as New York’s mayor, whose name is Ebert and who closely resembles a certain well-known movie critic. Perhaps that’s a clever hint that this movie’s essentially critic-proof. It’s stupid but it’s fun, and for most audiences that’s a fitting definition of mainstream Hollywood entertainment. —Jeff Shannon

Synopsis:

The Nerd loves Godzilla, but unfortunately for him the movies were hard to find growing up and the available video games were all terrible. To his extreme dismay, he finds out all the good Godzilla games came out after he was an adult. |
