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
The producers responsible for the American localization of the film originally intended to have Yuki's boss say, "Jesus Christ!" when he sees the UFO instead of, "Great Caesar's ghost!" but decided against it, fearing it would be disrespectful to followers of the Japanese Shinto religion.

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 »
[after Godzilla destroys Orga]
Boy, that's ironic. It woke up after 60 million years, and then Godzilla destroyed it the very next day.

Godzilla's roar is heard right before the "A Tri-Star Release" credit at the end of the closing credits. (US version only) See more »
Heh heh, what isn't there for me to love "Godzilla 2000"? Minimal computer graphics, well built city models, awesome looking makeover for the big G and a neat and fierce looking foe named Orgah. Oh, and not to mention a cute little girl named Iyo, who shows a big interest for Godzilla and Orgah (perhaps a nostalgic refrence to the monster loving kids Ken Yano and Rokku-chan?).
Alot of people seem to hate this movie due to it not having too much CG, no "super sexy" model actor or actresses or were just spoiled off of the recent Hollywood trash cinema. OMG, and someone even compaired the recent Godzilla movies to Evangellion (GAG ME!).
I however, stand up for Toho. Long live Toho! Long live the King of Monsters!
