An amazing recreation of a movie close to my heart. The right libertys were taken while maintaining the integrity of Gojira. #KINGOFTHEMONSTERS

The movie was lacking in what could have been much more epic for 2016.

Part force of nature. Part political drama. Part pure kaiju camp. Might be too talky for some.

If you don't mind a lot of talking and love Godzilla or monster movies then this is a great watch.

Perfect amount of political satire and awesome city destroying Godzilla action. I've never been so stressed out in a movie

The U.S. version was a lot better than this version.

The director cleverly fused the giant monster genre with a political drama

Come for the city-flattening; stay for the political satire.

You shouldn't watch Shin Godzilla for Godzilla alone. He's not really the star of the film—Yaguchi and the rest of his human adversaries are. They credibly resist the end of the world with ingenuity and teamwork, making Shin Godzilla just as winningly optimistic as it is pleasurably eccentric.

The mother of all allegorical monsters takes on new meaning in a talky, vaguely nationalistic reboot that slips on like a comfortable sweater, even if it’s a sweater with some holes in it.
