A reporter investigates the disappearance of a ship. He finds the ship and discovers that all the hands have been killed by a giant sea louse except for one. The lone survivor then tells the reporter that the ship was attacked by Godzilla (Gojira). Fearing a panic, the Japanese government then takes the survivor into custody to keep him from revealing that Godzilla has returned. However, a Soviet nuclear submarine is destroyed and the situation puts them and the United States on the brink of nuclear war, until the Japanese decide to come clean and admit that it was Godzilla. Soon the Japan and the rest of the world are on red alert as they wait for Godzilla to begin his rampage anew. Written by

Kenpachirô Satsuma had suffered grueling injuries while playing Godzilla, including a sharp wire in the suit's leg chewing on his thigh (and thus shouting for help inside the suit as a scene was to be shot), and sharp staples from pyrotechnic explosives trickling into his suit and down his feet when the back was left open (Satsuma was very angry with the SPFX crew about this, having warned them to "Wait until I am fully sealed in the suit!" The crew was more careful at this point). After production, Satsuma lost a lot of weight (similar to how Haruo Nakajima lost 20 pounds after he first played Godzilla). See more »
Godzilla changes sizes many times over the course of the movie. See more »

Okumura, you saw a monster?
That's right. Professor, I've told my story, so many times. I told, the police, Maritime Security, but none of them seem to believe a word!
That's natural. Not everyday, monsters appear.

I seen both the International and Asian versions of this.If you do NOT want Ramond Burr's preaching nor Dr. Pepper lovin' hicks, stick to the original Japanese version.I personally like the original version myself.
