Trivia

Four Godzilla suits were made for this movie, and the main suit had an animatronic inside the head to make Godzilla's head and mouth move. There was also an oxygen hose that can be attached to part of the tail so that actor Tsutomu Kitagawa could breathe. But Kitagawa stated that despite these advantages, "playing Godzilla is not for someone who is claustrophobic." Kitagawa, a veteran Japan Action Club (JAC) stuntman who did stunts for the Blue Rangers in Toei's Super Sentai Series (featured as Dynaman (1988) and "Power Rangers" in the US) plays Godzilla for the first time in this film.

Far better then the American Version
6 December 2000 | by (Portland OR United States) – See all my reviews

I can remember leaving the theater frustrated that I wasted 4 bucks on the worst film of 1998, Godzilla. (In fact, I thought Godzilla was about as silly as The Naked Gun-which was supposed to be)! I received a free pass to Godzilla 2000 and was surprised how enjoyable it was. Rather then ripping off Jurassic Park as the 1998 version did, it went back to the old formula; simple plot, simple characters, and great monsters. The only problem? Godzilla wasn't given enough to do. But when he's on, its SHOWTIME!!!!!!!
