ne might think that a big Iguana with a 'tude, New York City, and a problem that can be blaimed on France would equal "This summer's big hit"! Instead, it spells GODZILLA and sadly the Big Apple is going to have to wait for ARMAGEDDON to be entertainingly destroyed.
GODZILLA can be summarized as follows: "Asexual Iguana emigrates to Manhattan so he may sniff Mathew Broderick." With a plot like that, I too could not wait to put down $8 and see this film on opening night. Not since LOST IN SPACE had I felt this abused. And GODZILLA is a long movie. I felt gyped out of 2 hours of my life.
What happened to GODZILLA of yesteryear? He was funny, had a purpose in life, and generally showed up in Tokyo to "whoop butt" on a New Skin convention or related monster. Today's GODZILLA willingly travels to New York during the rainy season, gets crappy seats at Madison Square Garden, and can be hunted by a French Secret Service Agent.
All in all, this movie was as fullfilling as tofu on Thanksgiving. I say to the creators of INDEPENDENCE DAY AND GODZILLA, what's next? The trend points to movies titled "The Rabid Lemmings of Madison County."
Thankyou; goodnight, we'll see you next tour.
