Shin Godzilla

What to Know

Critics Consensus

Godzilla Resurgence offers a refreshingly low-fi -- and altogether entertaining -- return to the monster's classic creature-feature roots.

Clarisse Loughrey Independent (UK) What Shin Godzilla does offer is one major counter: Godzilla's real home is Japan, and anything else feels like a glitzy vacation. Rated: 3/5 Aug 16, 2017 Full Review Tara Brady Irish Times Thirty-one films and 63 years later, the monster has seldom looked better. The final shot will haunt your dreams. Rated: 4/5 Aug 15, 2017 Full Review Owen Williams Empire Magazine Coming off like a peculiar mash-up of The Host and Dr Strangelove, Shin Godzilla is weirdly paced but does add a new twist to the old formula. Rated: 3/5 Aug 13, 2017 Full Review Tom Cassidy Common Sense Media The movie's cast of Japanese A-listers lifts an already strong idea to create a touching, inspirational, and downright thrilling 21st-century monster movie. Jan 17, 2024 Full Review CJ Sheu Review Film Review It's Godzilla versus the paper pushers-and Godzilla doesn't stand a chance. Jul 1, 2020 Full Review Panos Kotzathanasis Asian Movie Pulse "Godzilla Resurgence" is a great mainstream film, and probably the most meaningful, visually impressive, and well directed entry in the series.

Tim S Since I saw the American Godzilla film which is the best movie yet, This movie gives me a pulchritude and finally a not four-quadrant film with no annoying kids or teens 10/10 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/29/24 Full Review Jim P Hideaki Anno's vision and phenomenal editing make this a KINO G-film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/20/24 Full Review Andrei D A little rushed but great as both monster and bureaucracy movie Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/18/24 Full Review Josh S Shin is love, Shin is life Shin is amazing and terrifying, yet he’s probably in constant agony in each form. His design takes the physical form we’re all familiar with, and makes it terrifying and alien, yet in a beautiful way. The atomic breath is a perfect example of this, as it takes what you’d expect and goes in a more interesting and frightening direction. A lot of people are complaining that there are too many meetings, but that’s just how Japanese bureaucracy works. Very good movie, and it deserves all the praise it gets. Looking at some unused forms, I have a few thoughts. Shin evolves, for he is the chosen one. Shin conquers those who are unworthy. Everything is as Shin desires, for we are his dream. Shin is, for he is a god Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/16/24 Full Review Sam A well this godzilla movie is not the best but it is good and it is worth a watch Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/15/24 Full Review josh d An interesting take on Godzilla. Not my favorite though Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/09/24 Full Review Read all reviews
