AllMusic Review by

Director Gareth Edwards (Monsters) tapped award-winning French film composer Alexandre Desplat (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Philomena, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) to provide the score for his 2014 reboot of Godzilla, the world's most famous Kaiju, and Desplat delivers with an efficient, melodic, and undeniably bombastic brass- and percussion-heavy blast of summer blockbuster-appropriate clamor that capably juggles both emotion and destruction, while managing to hold its own against the big lizard's iconic, air-raid siren of a roar.
