Trivia

The film in the planning stage was called "Kaiju Chushingura" or "Monster Chushingura". "Chushingura" is a very popular Kabuki plot based on a real story of a band of Samurais taking revenge of their master who was killed. The name of the antagonist of "Chushingura" is "Kira" which was merged with "Aku" which is the Japanese word for "evil". "Kira-Aku" was respelled as Kilaak in the English translation. See more »

Goofs

When Godzilla attacks Tokyo and is being shelled, a building is hit and its side blown off. Windows warp, but remain in place, revealing they were plastic. See more »

Quotes

Major Tada: I didn't think Tokyo would escape this terror, but Rodan, Godzilla and Manda are all here at the same time.
Enraged Soldier: That's correct. New York, London, Moscow - they were all very unlucky.
Announcer: Emergency! Emergency! Mothra is now in District Number 5.

Great Godzilla and monster film!
6 March 2003 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This Toho monster film is very good.The all star cast of monsters is great but Baragon and Varan have little or no screen time.The newer version has an all new dubbing and digital recording which makes this serious film funny.If you love Godzilla and other Toho monsters then check Destroy All Monsters out today!
