Godzilla Does Copenhagen, ba­si­cally. The lo­ca­tions are one nov­elty of this mon­ster movie, which at times looks like an ad for the Dan­ish Tourist Board. An­other’s the way its mon­ster is cre­ated, re­gen­er­at­ing it­self from an ex­ca­vated tail tip.

Sadly it’s so-bad-it’s-bad in­ept in al­most ev­ery re­spect: the dodgy dub­bing, the stilted di­a­logue, and most of all the mon­ster. A wob­bly mar­i­onette never con­vinc­ingly in­te­grated with the live ac­tion, it’s about as fright­en­ing as The Clangers’ Soup Dragon.

Ex­tras None.

Os­borne’s warn­ings came true.
