Trivia

This was the first Godzilla film since Terror of Mechagodzilla (1975) (and the first Toho tokusatsu film since The War in Space (1977)) to be shot in the classic 2.35:1 (CinemaScope) aspect ratio. Previously, all films from Godzilla 1985 (1984) to Godzilla vs. Destoroyah (1995) (which made up the VS/Heisei Series) were shot in 1.85:1 (VistaVision). See more »

Goofs

When Orga hits Godzilla in the head the camera zooms in right after the hit to see Godzilla recoil. In the shot Orga's hand is not present even thought the previous shot doesn't show Orga lower his hand. See more »

Quotes

Mitsuo Katagiri: Hello Shinoda. It's been a long time.
Yuji Shinoda: Not long enough. I hoped never to see you again.
Mitsuo Katagiri: I know. You and Miyasaka were a fine team. You should have come with him when I established CCI.
Yuji Shinoda: Not in a thousand years! I could never work for a man like you.
Mitsuo Katagiri: Why not? We both have the same goals.
Yuji Shinoda: Boy that's a real laugh. Godzilla needs to be studied. He's a gold mine of knowledge. But you couldn't care less! You just want to kill him before we can fully analyze him.
Mitsuo Katagiri: And in the meantime, he just levels ...

Old School Godzilla
26 August 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is old school Godzilla plain and simple. Nothing terribly exciting, no super cool computer effects. Just a guy in a rubber suit and godzilla breathe drawn on the film. Actually there is a little computer stuff, but nothing that hasn't been done for years.

This is not a great movie, by any stretch of the imagination, but nostalgia makes it enjoyable. I think this is also a better movie for kids than most of the action monster movies coming out. Almost no one dies in the movie and there is little swearing or sexual overtones. This might make it too simple for adults who are not nostalgic for the old movies, but others should enjoy it.
