A great misunderstood Godzilla movie, 22 September 1999
Author: Gigan64 from Calforina, US

This movie is great, one of the best of the giant monster movies (daikaiju). But sadly this movie is usally overlooked because of the silly opponents that Godzilla fights, like a giant lobster and a giant condor. but if you look past the bad Kajiu designs, and focus more on the plot you will enjoy the movie alot more. Also get the subtitled version, there are too many mistakes in the dubbed version so that it passes on as stupid, and the actors in this movie are really top notch, so get the subtitled version. Defentily one of the most overlooked Godzilla movies.
