Twelve Godzilla Movies available to view on HULU right now! Among them 1998 American version… godzilla!
However that unstoppable train would get derailed with GODZILLA, the duo’s 4th and last collaboration together. The movie ended up being a commercial and critical failure. Which is a shame, because when you let go of your expectation of this as a Godzilla film, it is really a GREAT monster movie. Rewatching it this past year in 2017, it is an exciting, fun, and grand monster film, and is heads and shoulders better than the later, dreadfully boring, Gareth Edwards GODZILLA (2014) film. Boring not being a sin you can lay against the Emmerich film. In many ways it is the best of the 4, holds up thr best of the four Devlin/Emmerich collaborations.
The later Toho films would take some of those themes explored in the Emmerich/Devlin version, and create better/darker Godzilla films because of it. Even to the latest, the magnificent SHIN GODZILLA (2016). So lets all raise our glass to Emmerich & Devlin’s GODZILLA! Grade: B+.
