In one scene, Godzilla takes on Anguirus, Rodan, and King Caesar at once. These three monsters were allies of Godzilla in the Showa era (1954-1975) of the Godzilla series. See more »

After Godzilla and his son wade off into the sea with a final roar, the title monster's name appears on screen one last time. The ending credits themselves play over various scenes from the movie, including some that were deleted or removed from the finished cut. These include Mothra flying back to her home island, Hedorah the smog monster with some brief city destruction, more lead up to Ozaki making his way too Douglas Gordan, a fight between Kazama and Kumasaka in the news room, a new shot of King Caesar running, and several different shots of Godzilla. The credits fade to black with the sound of the original Godzilla roar signaling the end. 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.
