So I'm a big Godzilla fan, and I've seen all of them all the way back to the original. I've got to say out of every one of them, this has hit my #1. The plot/story is very simple and easy to follow. Our main character that we follow has fantastic character development along with great supporting characters. The visual effects are superb, especially for a movie with only a $15 million budget. It is a great step Toho did to show you can create a 5/5 movie without the budget of a small nation, which is a gut punch to the bloated Hollywood. Personally, I think if you aren't a Godzilla fan, this would be the film to make you one! I think everyone should be able to relate in some fashion to at least one character in this film, which is probably why the reviews prior to me watching it was so high. Thank you, Toho, for going back to the original movin concept and making this movie happen!

A tremendous take on Zilla. The family storyline is so admirable and rich, it leaves you wanting those human connections. It's a treacherous battle of emotional impacts that stings the inner spirit of the lead character. Female chara had such a warm bliss, crucial to the emotional human story. The city shots and the destruction was insanity. Viewed in IMAX, roars and instruments hit the core!!!

Loved it. Best Godzilla I’ve seen in a long time—subtitles and all!!! A lot of emotional material set against our favorite kaiju backdrop.

An excellent retelling of the original film. While keeping to the series roots, spun in a uniquely beautiful way. A must watch for new fans, and great way to honor the old ones. Definitely the best modern Godzilla film.

The action starts off right away from the very first scene. I would probably put this in the top three or four Godzilla movies that have ever been produced. It is definitely worth the cinematic experience to see it in the movies!

Truly a work of art that gets you invested in the story of godzilla. This movie doesn't try to make godzilla the protagonist like others, but shows the horror and destruction that godzilla is capable of. You join the main character as he struggles with his own demons and begins his life again after World War 2 only to face the challenge of godzilla.

I have been a fan all my life!! I have researched every film, watched them all, and collect godzilla merchandise...I didn't know what to expect from this film; but I was not prepared for the intense story and emotional experience this movie brought!! Such a powerful story with historic roots that words cannot describe it!! a must see film of 2023!!!!

Godzilla is a force not to be messed with. This movie had great visual and sound effects. The characters in the film are great and you can sympathize with them. While watching it I felt happy seeing Godzilla scary in this one. It's eyes bulge out when he does his Atomic Breath but also didn't want it to hurt the humans because I genuinely cared for them. This movie is amazing.

We finally get to see a horrifying Godzilla. It was very epic to see what Godzilla can do as a monster. Only wished they had more scene with Godzilla. Overall, it was a fun movie to watch

I knew nothing of this movie til today when I saw an article about it, and being fans of Godzilla movies, we had to go see it. Luckily, it was playing pretty close to home, so off we went to see it. Let me tell you, it is well worth seeing. If you are a fan of the old Godzilla movies that played on channel 56's Saturday afternoon, Creature Double Feature, then you are in for a treat. This movie reminded me so much of those movies with much better special effects. Godzilla at times looked a bit fake, and at times, he looked awesome. But that's all part of the experience. I do think if you want to see this movie, I strongly suggest seeing it in the theater, watching it at home won't be the same. The storyline isn't that bad either. Side note... the movie is all Japanese dialog subtitled in English. This did not bother us at all, and again, is part of the experience. May even go see this again.

Come for the skyline-destroying radioactive dino, stay for the delicately etched portrait of recovery and self-forgiveness. Or vice versa. Just don’t miss the chance to remind yourself why the world fell for Godzilla in the first place.

The enduring quality of the 1953 original is rooted in its engagement with the twin atomic disasters of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. This prequel, similarly, yokes American imperialism, postwar malaise, survivor guilt and weaponised atomic power to produce the best action film of the year.

It’s precision-tooled in terms of structure, almost to the point of airlessness, but you’d be hard-pressed to knock back the final 45-minute showdown as anything less than an impressive feat by a filmmaker orchestrating and charting the fine processes of an epic battle.
