The story: Godzilla battles giant monsters to protect Earth in this 60th anniversary celebration of the beloved creature.
The buzz: Japanese fans already are complaining that this Godzilla is too fat. But it would take a lot more than an extra chin or two to keep this one from at least being better than that 1998 monstrosity starring Matthew Broderick.
