Godzilla is a movie remake that has had mixed reviews across the board. This 1998 re-visitation of the classic science fiction monster movie genre was written and directed by Roland Emmerich, with the help of Dean Devlin. It is loosely based on the original Godzilla film from 1954, which spawned a slew of sequels and spin-off movies in the decades to follow.

Godzilla is about a nuclear disaster which happens in the South Pacific. The incident results in the unplanned mutation of an ancient reptile, which is reborn as an abnormally powerful and dangerous creature. Instead of migrating toward Japan like in the 1954 Godzilla film, Godzilla heads towards North America, or more specifically to downtown Manhattan. From there Godzilla begins spreading chaos and begins breeding new offspring.

The main plot of Godzilla involves the star character played by Matthew Broderick, named Dr. Niko Tatopoulos. An American scientist and activist against the horrors of nuclear power, Dr. Tatopoulos is quickly recruited to assist the military forces with his knowledge about radiation effects on mutation of species on our planet.

Godzilla has supporting cast that include Maria Pitillo, Hank Azaria, Kevin Dunn and Jean Reno. Maria Pitillo is the principal co-star, playing Audrey Timmonds. She is a media journalist who uncovers a secret tape about Godzilla but also has a history with Dr. Tatopoulos from year past.

Godzilla is an Science Fiction, Action, Thriller movie that was released in 1998 and has a run time of 2 hr 19 min. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.4 and a MetaScore of 32.
