A decidedly odd couple with ulterior motives convince Dr. Alan Grant to go to Isla Sorna (the second InGen dinosaur lab.), resulting in an unexpected landing...and unexpected new inhabitants on the island.
Godzilla returns in a brand-new movie that ignores all preceding movies except for the original with a brand new look and a powered up atomic ray. This time he battles a mysterious UFO that later transforms into a mysterious kaiju dubbed Orga. They meet up for the final showdown in the city of Shinjuku. Written by

When Shinoda is reading the magazine article about Godzilla, we see a very blurry close-up picture of Godzilla's mouth with lights shining on it. This suggests that it's one of the pictures Yuki took in the tunnel when she was very close to Godzilla and the lights on Shinoda's car were shining on his face. However, the movie has already established that the film negatives were ruined by Godzilla's radiation. See more »

Over the closing shot of Godzilla blowing up Shinjuku, a green "THE END" is superimposed, with a red question mark that appears over between the two words. (Theatrical US version only) See more »
Not the best start to a new series of Godzilla movies, but it'll do. It did have some work to do after the shitstorm that was the American Godzilla. It mostly makes up for that. We get a guy in a suit, looking better than ever. The film also brings us some CGI, with a wonderfully dodgy looking spaceship. I praise this film for not holding back on its imagination. I wish people would stay away from the American dubs. I've never seen one, and I've enjoyed the series thoroughly. This film had everything I'd come to expect, but seemed scared of being too outlandish. Hiroshi Abe also ruined a lot of the movie by having ONE look. Was it fear? Was it determination? Was it confusion? I'll never know.
