Did You Know?

The first of the Toho Godzilla films to feature a full CGI Godzilla, particularly in the scene where Godzilla swims underwater.See more »
Continuity: Katagiri asks who gave Shinoda authorization to enter the building, and Miyasaka admits that he did it. This creates an inconsistency in the American cut of the film, which deleted eight minutes of footage from the Japanese cut, as one of the deleted scenes showed the soldier who stops Shinoda talking on the phone with Miyasaka, who tells him that Shinoda is authorized to enter the building. The American version is edited to make it appear that the bombing siren distracts the soldier and Shinoda runs into the building unnoticed.See more »

Yuki Ichinose:Boy, that's ironic. It woke up after 60 million years, and then Godzilla destroyed it the very next day.
Yuji Shinoda:Yeah.

a monster movie ne plus ultra review, 28 August 2000
Author: robotman-2 from fredericksburg, VA

This is the latest in the Toho Films series, and it should be noted that this movie is a GODZILLA movie, a genre unto itself. Not only is it an intelligent film, with likeable characters ( the Godzilla Prediction Unit is great, in the enthusiasm of scientists trying to understand Godzilla as a force of nature; besides that, who wouldn't want to be part of the GDU and have that cool Godzilla logo on the side of their transport vehicle? ) and a truly kinetic, enthusiastic script by Hiroshi Kashiwabara and Wataru Mimura--the most telling line of dialogue in the movie, which could be used to describe the love and respect the writers have, occurs when a television reporter comments that the entire proceeding is "like something out of a 1950s science fiction film."

And that is the point of this movie, to remind every one of us who grew up on monster movies that in the midst of all the ALIEN-stylized cinematic drool, that the giant UFO perched menacingly over Tokyo, shimmering with mysterious electronic pulsations while Godzilla ( with an underwater swimming scene for Godzilla that is priceless) stomps in for a classic samauri-like duel with the alien craft and its occupant, with all the Man In Suit and b-movie special effects you can stand, is the reason why many of us "creature feature" lovers continue going to the movies TODAY, because we're looking for something like GODZILLA 2000. A movie crafted with exquisite passion and respect, both for its subject and for its audience.

Go see this movie in a theatre, or be sorry you didn't. Thrill to the magnificent musical score (the best I've heard in a film this year), and the superior direction that provides Godzilla with power and heroism (yes, heroism; Godzilla's reasons for alternately destroying Tokyo, but fighting against alien forces to save it, demonstrates what all us monster freaks know: Godzilla is intelligent, and has his reasons). I dare you to go and see Godzilla blast away with his atomic breath and not be ready to come up out of your seat with joy. This movie is undiluted greatness, from beginning to end.
