The Japanese title is actually "Gojira" and that's the monsters name in the original film. A very grim mood for this type of movie and Gojira is truly menacing and a serious threat. Excellent music score.

Description: The ocean's surface boils white-hot and a Japanese freighter mysteriously vanishes in the Pacific. Rescue boats meet the same fate, and the superstitious villagers of Odo Island fear an ancient legend has come true: the legend of Godzilla! Reawakened from eons-long sleep by an H-bomb test, the behemoth seeks revenge on the civilized world, turning Tokyo into a wasteland of atomic fire and rubble. Caught in the monster's path of destruction are young lovers Emiko and Ogata, who must betray their friend Dr. Serizawa, a brilliant but tormented scientist, in order to save the world. ---GodzillaOnDVD.com ...

"Re-watch - Jan. 11th Turns out the kiddo has agreed to join me on this endeavor, so she got to watch Godzilla for the first time. Amusingly she realized that they were using models for most of the big set-pieces. But I think she enjoyed it overall. I still think it's a great film, especially for its time. "

" Date: 11/4/2019 Viewed: Criterion Blu-Ray Rewatch Note: 65 years later and this movie is still an important cinematic achievement in film history. This movie is a dark and gritty movie that deals with the themes of nuclear war and how nature was going to take revenge on humanity. All the characters in this movie are fantastic and are very memorable. I still love the special effects that they were able to pull off because they look great in a 1954 stand point of view. Overall, this movie is "

Slant's 100 Best Sci-Fi Movies of All Time (100 movies items)

"More than 60 years of sequels, tag-team monster mash-ups, and shitty Hollywood remakes haven’t blunted the sheer cinematographic force, let alone metaphorical heft, of Ishirô Honda’s 1954 classic. Rarely has the open wound of widespread devastation been transposed to celluloid with greater visceral impact. Put another way, Godzilla is the Germany Year Zero of monster movies. The impetus for the film was a series of undeclared H-bomb tests conducted by the U.S. military at Bikini Atoll in Ma"
