4.0 out of 5 stars the one that started the craze., 9 Aug 2006
This review is from: Godzilla [1954] [DVD] (DVD)
a brilliant start to the japanese "godzilla" film series.

all the ingredients in this film are the ones that made the godzilla franchise one of the biggest in the world; corny acting and dialogue, burning buildings, vehicles being smashed up but also the sight of an actor inside a monster suit. all very cliched of course, but that's the way i like it. i have always regarded this particular character with affection, just like that other one king kong.

and now, i finally get to see the original "godzilla" from 1954. although there were two versions of the same film released at the same time, i prefer this one as it is the japanese one with a longer running time of 92 minutes; where as the american version runs for approximately 80 minutes.

the extras are good if a bit limited; the two featurettes are informative, the original designs and sketches for the film are interesting, but i think a full length documentary covering all of the godzilla films would have been outstanding. but that is a minor quibble.

so glad to see this finally on d.v.d.
