Trivia:
The producers responsible for the American localization of the film originally intended to have Yuki's boss say, "Jesus Christ!" when he sees the UFO instead of, "Great Caesar's ghost!" but decided against it, fearing it would be disrespectful to followers of the Japanese Shinto religion.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: 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 »

Takes the nasty taste of TriStar's disaster right out!, 29 December 2000
Author: tribbles (tribbles@mcmsys.com) from Moberly, MO USA

This film is a delight! It was SO COOL to see the "Big G" on the big screen again, minus Devlin & Emmerich's "retooling" (emphasis on "tool") The crowd that afternoon was small, but enthusiastic. Granted, the dialogue is just as stilted as previous films, but still fun. And "fun" is the operative word here. Whereas the aforementioned Tristar release was somber and bloodless, this one brings back the sheer joy of the original series with the verve of the Heisei series. Highly recommended!
