Worst Godzilla Movies


The Top Ten

1 Godzilla's Revenge

Just watched this today. I understand why some may hate it, I think it's too bizarre NOT to be fascinating. - truckturner

I love all the godzilla movies BUT THIS ONE this movie is bad and I mean really BAD it's the worst movie I've ever watched

You might as well just classify this as barney in a Godzilla suit. - AnythigGrunge4

This movie, is nothing, and I mean nothing, But stock footage from other godzilla movies, it was so bad, that I considered it the worst movie of all time

2 Godzilla (1998)

Many fans say the monster seen in this film was "Zilla" not Godzilla because he isn't powerful enough to be Godzilla - Unnamed Google User Remade

More like crapzilla

Really this one is the WORST

Pretty much. It's not even recognisably Godzilla, just some random dinosaur creature. - truckturner

3 Son of Godzilla

Dopey, but cute. - truckturner

I actually liked this movie it's not my favorite but I thought it was a cute movie I'd watch it again but I do agree it can get a little boring considering that godzilla doesn't destroy anything but it was cool to watch him beat up the kamacuras now the costume in this movie is awful it looks like while godzilla was sleeping a monster came and smooshed his face in

This movie is terrible, and hard to watch

SO Corny. Godzilla looks so bad in this movie. And why is he fighting a giant praying mantis and a spider? Minya is just annoying. - AnythigGrunge4

4 Godzilla Raids Again

Not the fact that the American Version is terrible, even the Japanese Version sucks too. The human characters aren't likable, the story isn't really interesting, and the fights...with the exceptions of Godzilla pushing Anguirus on a building till it collapse...DON'T EVER GET ME STARTED ON THAT! - asantalo

This is one of the best godzilla movies.

Its not that bad. - TheCriticalCritic

Dumb effects, awful plot, weird monster designs, and just stupid. The American version is a nightmare. WHAT IS GIGANTIS? You mean Godzilla.

5 Destroy All Monsters

This is the best Godzilla movie of all-time. What the hell? - truckturner

This movie isn't bad and not the worst, but it's kinda disappointing that many monsters have just cameos and do absolutely nothing.
This would be the best Godzilla movie if all monsters did have fight scenes.
The only ones that were actually doing something were Godzilla, Anguirus, Gorosaurus and King GHIDORAH.

Why WHY! Would you put a great movie Classic in the worst movie list but my opinion final wars is better than destroy all monsters but destroy all monsters is one of the best (I respect your opinion)

This is the showa Final Wars, why is it here? - TheCriticalCritic

6 Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster

I watched it, GOOD LORD! This is THE most boring Godzilla film to ever date, before the Anime showed up. I literally can't bare to watch this, every time this film shows up and my friends who are also G Fans were watching it with me, all felt like, "Yeah this movie sucks" even when I was a kid I never even liked this film. This film sucks so hard...end of story. - asantalo

AnythigGrunge4 Stinks Don't Listen to this person. Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster may not be the best. Terror of Mechagodzilla is a better Movie But Come on People. Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster is one of the First Godzilla Movies I've ever saw. Why is Destroy All Monsters on this List take Destroy All Monsters off this list Right Now. Destroy All Monsters is a Better Godzilla Movie than Godzilla Final Wars because the part where the Giant Monsters fight King Ghidorah or Ghidrah was Awesome Why Godzilla Final Wars didn't do that that would make Godzilla Final Wars a better Movie

Pretty terrible. - TheCriticalCritic

Same thing with Terror of Mechagodzilla. It took forever to get interesting - AnythigGrunge4

Except Terror of Mechagodzilla is better than this piece of junk. - asantalo

7 Godzilla vs. Megalon

It's really more so bad it's good/funny than the worst. Jet Jaguar is a riot.

It's so bad its good. - TheCriticalCritic

This movie is just so bad..

8 Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle

This movie is so terrible! Put this on the Top 5! - asantalo

9 King Kong vs Godzilla

Probably my least favourite Toho Godzilla movie. King Kong looks awful, the film is surprisingly dull. - truckturner

Why does King Kong win? Godzilla is the best monster out of all! The people who created this film should be guilty! I mean, I love King Kong, but Godzilla is my favorite.

It is awful that Kong wins,Hopefully Godzilla fries this punk in the remake.

Kong won because of popularity, and it inflated the egos of many Kong fanboys. - TheCriticalCritic

10 Godzilla vs. Megaguirus

This movie is just plain abysmal, slow - paced and so boring.
Get him higher on the list!

This movie sucks. Put this on number 10.

Bland boring and more but the final battle is funny

The Newcomers

? Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla

This movie shows that Godzilla is weak come on why is does this movie had to exist Godzilla is the king Toho if you wanted to make Mechagodzilla powerful you need to make his level the same as Godzilla not too powerful and literally the sequel to it sucks too! What is even wrong with this film it’s not amazing it’s just Godzilla getting his butt kicked! I hate this film it makes the king looks like a piece of 💩 too Like in the 1998 Godzilla make him powerful next time!

This movie made Godzilla weak I have no idea why they made Godzilla a piece of 💩 I hate it the squeal to it sucks too this movie isn’t great it’s just Godzilla getting his A$$ kicked off I hate I rate it 0/100

The Contenders

11 Godzilla: Monster Planet

Wait a minute why the hell godzilla planet of the monsters on worst list it should been on best and greatest movie.

A post apocalyptic anime about Earth being dominated by Godzilla and other kaiju is a great concept still waiting happen if American animation studio makes an American adaptation this and the anime trilogy.

12 Godzilla: Final Wars

This movie was AMAZING ou just hate it because he's too powerful

Only a monkey with no taste would think this movie is good.

This movie was so good. What is your problem?

This movie was amazing and one of the best! What is wrong with you?!

13 Godzilla vs. Monster Zero

The Godzilla dance was awesome. My complains are that it's kinda boring, Godzilla and Rodan lost against King Ghidorah. And plus this feels like a remake to Ghidorah: The 3 Headed Monster. - asantalo


This movie is just flat out boring. And really? Godzilla on space. Wow - AnythigGrunge4

Invasion of astro monster is one of the WORST ghidorah the three headed monster is better than this stupid movie they let godzilla and Rodan lose I HATE THIS MOVIE SO MUCH and why should they call ghidorah monster zero? WHAT

14 Godzilla vs. Gigan

Aside from Godzilla and Anguirus communicating in thought bubbles (! ), the monster footage in this is terrific. Unfortunately, it's sunk by another re-run of the humans vs. deceitful aliens plotlines, probably the worst of that plot idea. - truckturner

Remember when Godzilla and other monsters were talking like humans? Yeah, neither do I... - Gehenna

Bad horrible and Godzilla and anguirus bleed what the oh come on

15 Terror of Mechagodzilla

Surprised this one seems so popular. The monsters are great, but it's about the fifth film in the series to have an 'aliens control monsters' plot, and easily the weakest of that kind. - truckturner

WHAT! That's my all time favorite movie! TAKE THAT OFF RIGHT NOW!


It took WAY to long to get interesting. - AnythigGrunge4

16 Godzilla (2014)

You know a movie is bad when the titular character barely even appears in it!

The whole thing was about the boring main character and the final fight was so lame but kiss if death was awesome!

The movie? Not that good. Godzilla himself? AMAZING! I love the Godzilla in this movie, but every time we are about to see him, it cuts away to the boring military guy. And the final fight is great and all, BUT It's SO DARK YOU can't SEE! We don't care about the military guy, or his family, and his father, the one we came here for, DIES before Godzilla even arrives. We want the monsters, not bland and boring humans. - TheCriticalCritic

Godzilla only appeared for 9 minutes for the entire movie

17 Invasion of Astro-Monster
18 Mothra vs. Godzilla
19 Godzilla vs. Hedorah

This movie was sloppy and a mess. No pun intended. Also, that scene with Godzilla flying. - TheCriticalCritic

20 Godzilla vs. Mothra

I hate it when godzilla loses. CAN YOU REMAKE ONE WHEN GODZILLA WINS!?!?!?!

Godzilla losing to a MOTH? Absolute filth.

Really I love this movie it is the battle for earth so shut up

The only bad one in the heisei series

21 Godzilla vs King Ghidorah

This is a good movie

Hey! this is the best in the heisei series

This movie had HORRIBLE plot twists - Mewingmew

Why is this on worst godzilla films?! It's the best heisei film toho have ever made!

22 Godzilla Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All Out Attack

I love how King ghidorah is finally a good dragon! It was my dream for King ghidorah to finally know what side to choose!

SO YOU GUYS SHUT UP! I love this!

The monster designs are good, the trailer is EPIC, but the plot line? I mean COME ON! Why was King ghidorah a GOOD GUY!?

They should’ve leave Anguirus and Varan in this movie with Mothra and Baragon. King Ghidorah as a hero ruined the film for me. Not saying the film sucks, I’m saying that King Ghidorah doesn’t need or deserve to be a good guy. That’s like Batman is evil and The Joker is the hero of Gotham City. Although the film is great, but still, could’ve been better if they take off King Ghidorah. - asantalo

23 Godzilla: The Planet Eater Godzilla: The Planet Eater

Worst Ghidorah design, enough said - asantalo

24 The Return of Godzilla

Gojifan 1993 is gonna get angry when he sees this

I'm gonna tell on Gojifan1993. - asantalo

Now you goji fan 93 mad

25 Godzilla vs. Spacegodzilla

Wha? This movie was awesome. Get this off the list! The only problem with this movie is Little Godzilla. The battle in the end between Godzilla, Moguera and SpaceGodzilla was epic!

I hate this film more than 1998

I liked it. - 906389

My least favorite out of the Heisei series

26 Godzilla Resurgence

Ugly mothersucker

27 Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S.

It's basically Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla again, but with Mothra and her larva thrown in. Dull characters, predictable plot, unmemorable action sequences and loads of boring talk and there is Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. it's so boring I actually fell asleep on my first time watching it.

28 Godzillla 1954

Godzilla 1954 Bad? Don't make me laugh. This movie is really good. Now the person that put this movie on the list, shall be squashed by Godzilla's foot.

Don't make me laugh! This movie is really good.

Okay seriously how dare these




29 Godzilla vs Mothra Battle for Earth
30 Godzilla vs. Destroyah

I feel that the ending is the only redeemable feature of the movie. The rest of it is a total mess.

I CRIED WHEN GODZILLA HAD HIS MELTDOWN REMAKE ONE WHEN HE STAYS ALIVE. also, when his son was killed I cried all night.

31 Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla II
32 Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)

This was painful...

I just watched this movie today.
I was so hyped about this movie and I thought that it was going to be the best Godzilla movie ever.
So, I just watched it... and I'm so DISSAPOINTED!
How can I even describe it?!
The pacing is bad, the characters are bland and stupid (especially Maddison Russel, the lead character), the monster action is boring as heck, etc.
So much about Michael Dougherty (the director of this movie) beeing a huge Godzilla fan...

I actually enjoyed the hell out of it. I understand why fans complain a little bit. But the characters aren’t TOO bad. Serizawa is perfection. And Mothra is just...AMAZING! This is the best film to feature Mothra. She has the best design and even Ghidorah has the best design from this film. And better fights than GMK. GOD I HATE THAT MOVIE MORE! - asantalo
