GODZILLA (1998) 7MATE, 7.30PM, PG, AC­TION

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Co-writer and di­rec­tor Roland Em­merich (In­de­pen­dence

Day, ThePa­triot) up­dates the 1955 Ja­panese mon­ster flick for the meat-and-pota­toes au­di­ence – re­plac­ing men in rub­ber suits with 1998’s best in spe­cial ef­fects, trans­pos­ing the set­ting to New York and rais­ing the deci­bel level to in­tol­er­a­ble. There is lit­tle to re­deem this va­pid “high­con­cept” block­buster, whose weak­nesses are many. Among the list­less cast, Jean Reno (pic­tured) is the only ac­tor to come away un­scathed. ★★✩
