In previous movies, Godzilla was an unstoppable villain that only cared about destroying the world. In the prequel to when this suit was used, Ghidrah, the Three Headed Monster, Godzilla became friendly towards people. This suit became the start of Godzilla's infamous "hero of the world" phase. Although Godzilla was still considered a danger in the movies, he still knew that he was to protect the people of Earth. See more »
In several shots, the track on which the military vehicles move, along with support beams holding them in place can clearly be seen. In some cases these supports hold the vehicles up so high that their tires don't touch the ground. See more »

A lot of 'professional' film critics seem to have an irrational dislike of Godzilla films. True, the special effects in them aren't usually fantastic but they're certainly a lot better than many 60's western dinosaur films which just rely on lizards with fins and spikes blu-tacked to them.
This film, for example, is an excellent piece of sci-fi, imaginative, well-paced and containing genuine characters and interesting monsters. An alien race want to borrow Godzilla and Rodan to stop Ghidorah attacking their home planet, but it soon turns out they are not as friendly as they seem.
One of the best Godzilla films I've seen, a true classic from the golden age of monster movies.
