This year, the Americans are coming up with a new remake of the famous Japanese monster and, so far, the buzz is pretty good so it should be an improvement on Emmerich's version but, on the other hand, it won’t be difficult. Indeed, this first US remake was big and it was bad... Big budget doesn't always mean big success and they originally planned to have two sequels to be produced but these plans were scrapped due to the poor reception of this film. Still, despite the disappointing box office performance, it still made a lot of money, in fact, more money worldwide than any other American movie based on a foreign film. Even though I haven’t seen any original Godzilla features, this one was utterly disrespectful with the material which is not really surprising since Roland Emmerich admitted that he did not like the original Godzilla movies and, apparently, he only agreed to do this project after being promised to be able to do what ever he wanted with the series. I remembered when I watched this flick and how I was surprised how bad the whole thing looked. To conclude, it is really a terrible flick, you should avoid it and hope that the new version directed by Gareth Edwards will finally deliver something decent.
