Godzilla returns in a brand-new movie that ignores all preceding movies except for the original with a brand new look and a powered up atomic ray. This time he battles a mysterious UFO that later transforms into a mysterious kaiju dubbed Orga. They meet up for the final showdown in the city of Shinjuku.Written by
The way the skyscraper implodes beneath the giant UFO - with billows of smoke and debris cascading outward as it collapses - eerily presages the way the World Trade Center came down in 2001 (two years after this film was made). See more »
During the seldom-used areal shots of Godzilla, the greenscreen technique becomes strikingly obvious as Godzilla's feet apparently disappear even when not obscured by anything, and he doesn't even always move in unison with the camera (the camera shakes but he remains still). Finally, he is of a completely different hue than the surrounding environment. See more »
[closing scene; Japanese Version]
The recklessness of science gave birth to you, Godzilla. Why do you appear before us?
[Godzilla continues to trample through Shinjuku]
Because we humans gave birth to this monster.
Godzilla is... inside all of us!

Godzilla's roar is heard right before the "A Tri-Star Release" credit at the end of the closing credits. (US version only) See more »
The US version takes out about 9 minutes of the film and changes a lot of the dialogue. See more »
Heh heh, what isn't there for me to love "Godzilla 2000"? Minimal computer graphics, well built city models, awesome looking makeover for the big G and a neat and fierce looking foe named Orgah. Oh, and not to mention a cute little girl named Iyo, who shows a big interest for Godzilla and Orgah (perhaps a nostalgic refrence to the monster loving kids Ken Yano and Rokku-chan?).
Alot of people seem to hate this movie due to it not having too much CG, no "super sexy" model actor or actresses or were just spoiled off of the recent Hollywood trash cinema. OMG, and someone even compaired the recent Godzilla movies to Evangellion (GAG ME!).
I however, stand up for Toho. Long live Toho! Long live the King of Monsters!
