Storyline

Strange incidents occur when an American submarine has been destroyed by a mysterious force at sea off the shores of Guam. Only Admiral Tachibana was certain that behind the disaster was none other than the destructive King of the Monsters, Godzilla! 50 years after his attack on Tokyo in 1954, Godzilla has mysteriously returned to life to destroy Japan, and General Tachibana, whose parents died in the monster's destructive wake, was prepared for his return to protect Japan from yet another tragic disaster, but is dismissed by the overly confident Japanese government, who underestimate Godzilla's power. But to further prove Tachibana's claim, his daughter Yuri, who works for the TV news program "Digital Q," investigates strange phenomena in three separate areas in Japan (two of which involve the deaths of immoral youths), and meets a mysterious old man named Isayama, who proclaims that aside from his infamous nuclear origins, Godzilla is an accumulation of vengeful souls (of both ...

Trivia

During the scene where Godzilla first appears rising from Yaizu Harbor in Shizuoka, three people in a nearby office witness the incident (before Godzilla's thundering roar shatters glass on the office windows). Next to one of the three people, the camera focuses on a black and white poster of an old ship, the Lucky Dragon, which was the real life Japanese fishing boat that was contaminated by radioactivity in mid-1954. That incident became a direct inspiration for the original Godzilla (1954). See more »

Goofs

When Mothra is on Godzilla's head and wrestling with him, just before King Ghidorah first arrives, you can briefly see some sort of black rigging protruding from Mothra's back, most likely a device used to support the Mothra puppet. See more »

Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (2001)
13 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Godzilla is a horrible little bastard in this movie. He is truly badass. For once, he has no redemption, to the point that previous alien controlled villains are now guardians of the earth. This film grabs the human element by taking a father and daughter as an army captain and a TV reporter. The effects here are just fantastic. All the puppets, suits, CGI looks great, and we get more Godzilla/Human interaction than ever. I loved the shot where Godzilla arrives and throws a boat into the air, only for it to fall straight down onto the camera again. We get some exceptional long takes of cityscapes. It's fascinating to see so many monsters beat each other in what looks like a real city. These Godzilla movies also have the confidence to just let it play out rather than making me sick with constant edits. With a subtitle of Giant Monsters All Out Attack, you know this is gonna be good. Just a shame that Mothra and Ghidorah were slightly out of character.
