We gave it a B

This is not (repeat: not) a sequel to Matthew Broderick’s 1998 20-story stinkeroo. (While Hollywood’s big-budget riff on the Lizard King wasn’t quite the fiscal sinkhole angry fan sites made it out to be, it hasn’t yet spawned a follow-up.) Instead, this 23rd installment in the Japanese-export saga is old-school ‘Zilla — right down to the campy outer-space foe, who wakes up after 6,000 years on the bottom of the ocean.
