    An overblown action monstrosity with no surprises, no exhilaration and no thrills. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    A big, ugly, ungainly device to give teenagers the impression they are seeing a movie. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    The dialogue is dumb ('zilla has the best lines, "arrrrrggh" and "maaroarrr"), New York is waterlogged, and Godzilla isn't on screen enough. show more
