Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 05/14/2004
"GODZILLA is still the most awesome of tacky movie monsters..."
New York Times - 09/05/2006
"Ishiro Honda's seminal monster movie....Images of a devastated miniature Tokyo have clearly been modeled on the newsreels of Hiroshima and Nagasaki..."
A.V. Club - 02/01/2012
"Honda pours a vast inventory of nuclear references and cultural fears, including direct talk of the ethical responsibility of scientists, allusions to Hiroshima and H-bomb testing in the Pacific, and a moving swell of national resilience and pride." -- Grade: A

Product Description:

The testing of nuclear weapons in the Pacific Ocean triggers the awakening of a dreadful, 400-foot-tall, fire-breathing prehistoric lizard who commences to wreak havoc on the city of Tokyo. The original Japanese version of GODZILLA, without the Americanized addition of Raymond Burr.
