Roland Emmerich's ho-hum remake of Godzilla comes to DVD with plenty of extra features: along with a widescreen transfer and Dolby Digital 5.1 Audio, the disc also includes a commentary by the special effects supervisor, shots of New York before and after the giant lizard destroys the town, cast filmographies, and the theatrical trailers. A "making of" featurette and photo gallery also highlight the film's admittedly impressive special effects, while the music video for the Wallflowers' cover of "Heroes" showcases the film's other selling point: its soundtrack. Though the film's artistic merits are dubious at best, Godzilla's DVD plays to its strengths, making it a disc special effects fans will appreciate.
