    6 / 10
    A truly awful movie about the infamous monster.
    The title suggests that "size DOES matter", but a plotless size doesn`t.
    The entire movie is a big excuse for the big ugly lizard to destroy NYC. Nothing more. There`s no real acting involved and the characters are as flat as a cab after it had been crushed by the beast.
    The video transfer is good. There are no compression signs and the special effects are decent.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is good, as well. The surrounds are constantly used, mainly for enhancing the beast`s roars.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include a commentary by the special effects supervisor, a behind the scenes featurette, a picture gallery and a music video.
    Bottom line - a truly bad movie with no real merits, at all. Avoid.
