The concept of this movie is a mix of elements from the movie _Destroy All Monsters (1968)_, and the games "Godzilla: Monster Of Monsters" and "Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee". It uses the idea of alien invaders coming to earth with an army of monsters at their disposal, having Godzilla being able to avoid control and fight the army of monsters in various cities and areas across the world comes from "Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee", and Mothra being his only real ally was used in "Godzilla: Monster Of Monsters".

The New York cop's mouth and speech are badly mismatched. This is because actor Mick Preston used the F-word repeatedly during filming and was later required to dub over his original dialog with less-offensive language. Viewers can still see him mouthing the F-word in certain shots. See more »

I think there is a tendency with hardcore Kaiju fans to forget that these movies should not be taken so seriously. They are never executed to perfection. There are always plot holes. There is always some sub-par acting. Some of the special effects always look a little weak. Get over it.
I also attended the world premier of Final Wars, and I would say this has to be the most exciting of them all. It takes a very similar sci-fi angle to Godzilla vs. Monster Zero and adds a dash of Matrix stylization while constantly bombarding you with fantastic Kaiju fight scenes.
I am not sure that "Final Wars" will see the same shelf-life as some of the older classic Godzilla flicks due to the fact that it is so action-oriented. This film is definitely not going to get the camp appreciation that so many older films do. However, if you are a Godzilla fan and want to see some absolutely fantastic battles along side an entertaining sci-fi plot, you will really enjoy this film.
