HASH(0x9148a918) out of 5 stars ... concoction of Godzilla at the movie theater and I enjoyed it. However 18 July 2014
By B. Silver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I went to see the latest concoction of Godzilla at the movie theater and I enjoyed it. However, immediately upon arriving at home, I got on Amazon and purchased the original with Raymond Burr. There are just some movies that shouldn't be remade, and this is one of them. The story, the acting, Japanese and American are just superlative to any other version (especially, the horrendous Matthew Brodderick version - whoever thought Godzilla was an iguana is an idiot!). But, it's the monster that makes the movie. I must have watched this film at least 150 times since I was a kid, and, this rubber suited monster is just believable and especially believable to me. The roar of this Godzilla still generates monster thrills and chills. Leave my Godzilla alone, and never, never make another version. By the way: Long Live Rodan!

HASH(0x910d8d14) out of 5 stars The original that started it all... and the best!!! 31 May 2014
By Jero Briggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I'll admit it, I've never been a huge fan. Most of the sequels were bad... so bad. But this original was totally awesome! And I would have never checked it out if it wasn't for my dad who tried to convince me that it was a great movie, and once I seen it, I agreed. It was a serious action/drama/horror film with a great story, great acting, great characters, and great visuals for the time. I'm very glad I bought it.

This DVD includes both the American edit of the film "Godzilla: King of the Monsters" and the original Japanese edit "Gojira (aka: Godzilla)". I loved both edits equally. Loved the added scenes in the Japanese version and loved Raymond Burr in the American edit. And unlike many of the sequels, the American edit in no way alters the original concept of the film nor the drama and it has some great voice dubbing.

Plot:

When ships start to disappear and are mysteriously destroyed in the South Pacific, an investigation begins which reveals that the ships were destroyed by an intense blast of radioactive energy. The superstitious villagers of Odo island believe it's the mythical monster Godzilla. Of course this is disputed at first, but it soon becomes clear that Godzilla is no myth when giant radioactive footprints appear in the earth and the monstrous beast rises up from the ocean and comes inland to Tokyo. Godzilla is a giant indestructible reptile, mutated due to nuclear weapons tests. Now it has arrived in Tokyo to wreak havoc on the city. With the military battling it with every weapon available to them, Godzilla continues its rampage. Is there any way of stopping it before it makes mankind an endangered species?

It's very suspenseful, dramatic, and eerie. One of the best monster movies ever made! Highly Recommended!

HASH(0x916ce474) out of 5 stars The same movie but two different versions 2 Jun. 2014
By john ward - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The redistribution of the original was great nothing has changed when it first came out well I mean when Raymond Burr was put into to it. What I really liked they put the original Japanese film on its own disc and shows parts not seen in the other one.
