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
This is the last Godzilla movie to be released in American theaters since Godzilla 1985 (1984). See more »
Early in the movie when Godzilla roars and breaks the car front windshield, it shatters into large pieces. Front windshield glass is are laminated with a sheet of plastic in the middle and won't break that way for passenger safety. Tempered glass on the sides will shatter into very small fragments so the pieces are not from there either. See more »
Hello Shinoda. It's been a long time.
Not long enough. I hoped never to see you again.
I know. You and Miyasaka were a fine team. You should have come with him when I established CCI.

Why not? We both have the same goals.

Yes, Godzilla 2000 ain't the most stellar movie ever made. It's slow in some spots and the story is very slight. But I liked it. The previous reviews posted before mine makes me wonder if they saw the same movie.
A tragic waste of talent? Eh? You mean the US version was a tragic waste of talent AND money. For what little money they had with Godzilla 2000, I'm pretty impressed with what Toho made. Some FX scenes were really cool, like when we see the van driving on the road with Godzilla in the background. The battle at the end is great and I love Godzilla's new look, even though he should see a dentist with his really toothy grin. Anyway, I'm a Godzilla/Japanese Monster movie fan since I was a kid and I'm glad I finally saw a Japanese version of Godzilla on the big screen here in North America.
