Reviews:
"GODZILLA is still the most awesome of tacky movie monsters..." - 05/14/2004 Entertainment Weekly, p.49


"Ishiro Honda's seminal monster movie....Images of a devastated miniature Tokyo have clearly been modeled on the newsreels of Hiroshima and Nagasaki..." - 09/05/2006 New York Times, p.E3


"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 - 02/01/2012 A.V. Club
