Product Overview

"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.

Classic Media presents the original and uncut Japanese-language version of Ishiro Honda's Gojira (1954) and the popular ""Americanized"" version (1984) starring Raymond Burr as a reporter covering Godzilla's rampage."

Review "[1984] The post-cycle Godzilla 1985 is a serious Godzilla film in that the great fanged lizard is not battling Mothra or trading body slams with Baragun but is instead leading a one monster protest against atomic proliferation. More power to him, except that he chooses to vent his rage against a non-nuclear armed nation, Japan, and can thus do little there except to kick in a couple of cooling towers. Even if more monster movies were available in America on laser disc, Godzilla 1985 would still be worth obtaining. The action is well paced and the effects show the confidence gained from thirty years of smashing skyscrapers."

Review "[1954] Godzilla represents an attempt by director Ishir™ Honda to wrestle with his country's post-World War II nuclear phobia. To date, Japan is the only country to have been the wartime destination of a nuclear bomb, and what happened at Hiroshima and Nagasaki fractured the people's psyche. Godzilla is a morality play about the evils of nuclear experimentation, as well as an examination of the ethical dilemma faced by scientists who, in the pursuit of knowledge, make dangerous discoveries...This is the one Godzilla movie in which the title character plays second fiddle to the humans."
