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 ...

In the opening scene, Admiral Tachibana (Ryûdô Uzaki) lectures his troops on the incident from Godzilla (1954), and notes that "a monster similar to Godzilla ravaged New York at the end of the last century." This was a reference (and jab) to Godzilla (1998), the oft-disparaged Hollywood remake. Audiences in Japan both laughed and cheered at this scene. See more »

You felt that way too?
I think everyone feels that way.

Wow. That's all, just wow. This is one of Toho's best Godzilla films. GMK is action-packed, exhilarating, and their are a few cheesy moments to give you a chuckle. Godzilla looks awesome in this film. His white eyes give you one of the more menacing looks of the monster. The action scenes are great as G-Man faces Mothra, King Ghidorah, and another monster that for some reason wasn't used in the title, but I don't really want to spoil anything if you haven't seen the movie. The effects are fairly spectacular, and the actors really do do a good job...I think, I mean I really can't tell because I'm not from Asia.
Anyway, this is one of my favorite Godzilla films. You won't be disappointed seeing this film. I LOVE IT!
