Trivia

According to books and press material, the squid-like alien that became Orga is called the "Millennian". However, neither monster was referred to by name in either version. See more »

Goofs

During the seldom-used areal shots of Godzilla, the greenscreen technique becomes strikingly obvious as Godzilla's feet apparently disappear even when not obscured by anything, and he doesn't even always move in unison with the camera (the camera shakes but he remains still). Finally, he is of a completely different hue than the surrounding environment. See more »

First of the Godzilla "Millennium" series.
21 December 2004 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

Four years after the supposed last Godzilla movie, Toho brought back the Big G to star in another series of films called the "Millennium" series. This movie was made as a direct sequel to the original Godzilla film, but the monster simply appeared on cue - his origins and cause of his return were never explained. Aside from slight references mentioned by the characters of the monster's prior appearances in the 1960s and 1980s, you cannot really tell that this film has any relation to the original Godzilla movie. To me, I think there should be a suspense built-up to signal the return of Godzilla since 1954, like it was portrayed in "Godzilla 1985" (1984). Instead, Godzilla was just spotted as he began his rampage, with the military trying to stop him - nothing new here.

Meanwhile, a UFO lands on Earth, and Godzilla does battle with it. Thrown in the mix are people from the Godzilla Prediction Network (GPN), out to study Godzilla and spare him from the military; I think they really weren't relevant to the story, though. The acting was lame, especially Shirô Sano's character. There is really no new material or anything special about this film, aside from the introduction of a new monster. The plot was boring, which lead to an unexciting story and an unremarkable movie.

Kenji Suzuki's special effects, though, were amazing and Takayuki Hattori's music score was OK. I didn't really care for the monster suit for Godzilla - not really well executed. His radioactive breath, though, is given a more powerful purpose, as he only used it a few times in the movie.

Overall, a very dull movie to be made as the direct sequel to the original Godzilla film. This movie is simply another "monster-on-the-loose" flick, which ended up being my least favorite Godzilla movie.

Grade D-
