Trivia:
Intended to be the last Godzilla movie until the 50th anniversary of Godzilla (1954) in 2004, which allowed TriStar/SPE (also the distributor of many of the films in the USA) to make a trilogy of American Godzilla movies starring Matthew Broderick during that time. However, the poor critical response and box-office revenue of Godzilla (1998/I) caused TriStar/SPE to abandon plans for a second and third film and Tôhô to bring back Gojira sooner than planned with Godzilla 2000 (1999).See more »

Revealing mistakes: In the opening sequence in Hong Kong, traffic is seen moving at a normal pace and in some instances is actually traveling directly towards the Nuclear Godzilla.See more »

I Was A Teenage Godzilla, 18 December 1999
Author: evilskip from Stomping Hong Kong

This movie is the "last" in the series of Godzilla movies that started with Godzilla 1985.This time around Godzilla has become a living nuclear reactor on the verge of exploding and taking the planet with him.

On the print I watched there were some allusions to an atomic explosion on the island where Godzilla & Little Godzilla hung out.(But it is only mentioned in passing.Was it excised from this print?). Little Godzilla evolved due to the explosion into a teenage Godzilla.The elder Godzilla turned into a nuclear nightmare.In the beginning he lays waste to Hong Kong.

In Tokyo the remnants of the Oxygen Destroyer used to kill the first Godzilla in 1956 takes a life of its own.The Destroyah takes shape in the form of a hundred or so scrabbling insects larger than a car.Naturally the Destroyah turns out to be more than the Police/Army can handle.It also turns into one of the biggest,ugliest monsters you'll ever see.

Needless to say there is a titanic battle between Little Godzilla,the elder dying Godzilla and Destroyah.Tokyo is turned into a nuclear decimated wasteland as Godzilla approaches total meltdown. This isn't your father's Godzilla.He isn't a hero and he sure isn't cute.To say he is an unstoppable force of nature is more than accurate.He's mean,pi$$ed and this series has him at the most vicious.

The 7 movies in this series actually had plots and some money tossed into the special effects.Sure the dubbing bites and we could do without the little psychic girl from G Force.

All in all a fitting "ending" to the series.Now all we have to do is wait for Godzilla 2000.
