Editorial Reviews

Examiner: “. . . richly detailed and a must-have for Godzilla fans.”

Geekadelphia: “. . . brings the Kaiju to your coffee table . . . a beautifully designed book . . . a must for die-hard fans of Godzilla and film buffs alike.”

Tech Times: “. . . a giant, beautiful book that would be equally at home on a coffee table or on a shelf alongside other textbooks on how movies are made. The people at Insight Editions always impress with the quality of what they do, and this grand, exhaustive title is no exception.”

DVD Corner: “Whether you want to read and see images of cut scenes (such as the Godzilla and MUTO fight at sea) or want to get more in depth information about the MUTO and Godzilla’s history, it’s all here.”
