Bopp’s review published on Letterboxd:
I haven't even seen Honda's Varan so I can't speak to its quality, but I'm pretty sure this is another American bastardization à la Godzilla: King of the Monsters!. The Japanese dialogue isn't even subtitled, and all of the English dialogue is either sexist/racial stereotyping of the Japanese women, or blatant exposition. It's not the worst movie ever or anything, it's just another soulless American cash grab trying to profit off of successful Japanese kaiju, an utterly worthless film. The only reason I even watched it was because I thought it was the original, lol.
