The original radioactively mutated, giant lizard is back in all his flame-snorting, city-stomping glory - bigger, better and badder than ever before! An earth-shattering explosion rocks the French Polynesian Islands, and a nearby supertanker is swiftly and inexplicably destroyed. Was an explosion -- or something far more horrifying -- responsible for the devastation? The giant footsteps trailing from the wreckage seem to provide the answer.

Soon the newly awakened monster is leaving a mysterious trail of carnage in its wake as it cuts through miles of Panamanian forests, heading directly to a small, densely populated island... Manhattan.

It's up to two teams of investigators, each with their own agenda - headed by nuclear scientist Nick Tatapoulos and aspiring reporter Audrey Timmonds - to band together to discover the secret of Godzilla ...and determine the only way to stop him.

  • 5 stars "This movie is incredible! Tonnes of action and great special effects, but it's the love story that keeps you watching. I'll never understand why Broderick wasn't honoured with a Best Actor nomination for his wonderful performance."
