Trivia

Godzilla vs. Destoroyah (1995) was intended to be the last Godzilla movie until the 50th anniversary of Godzilla (1954) in 2004, allowing TriStar to make a trilogy of American Godzilla movies in that time, but the poor critical response to Godzilla (1998) caused TriStar to abandon plans for a second and third film and Toho to bring back the original Godzilla sooner than planned with Godzilla 2000.

Goofs

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 »

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 ...

Good film
5 August 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is my second favorite Godzilla film.

It has a good enough story, a great enemy, and good enough special effects. If you own this on DVD and you live in the USA, then please watch it on the "Audio Commentary". It will change your view of the movie. Plus it's a great come back against "Godzilla (1998)" which disgraced Godzilla. If you are a big Godzilla Fan, I fully recommend this film to you. It's a great start to begin the Millennium series which also has some really good films, among my favorite.

Anyway, I give this film an A-. If you watch it with the "Audio Commentary", you will too.
