Trivia

According to books and press material, the squid-like alien that became Orga is called the "Millennian". However, neither monster was referred to by name in either version. See more »

Goofs

When Shinoda is reading the magazine article about Godzilla, we see a very blurry close-up picture of Godzilla's mouth with lights shining on it. This suggests that it's one of the pictures Yuki took in the tunnel when she was very close to Godzilla and the lights on Shinoda's car were shining on his face. However, the movie has already established that the film negatives were ruined by Godzilla's radiation. See more »

Quotes

Mitsuo Katagiri: Hello Shinoda. It's been a long time.
Yuji Shinoda: Not long enough. I hoped never to see you again.
Mitsuo Katagiri: I know. You and Miyasaka were a fine team. You should have come with him when I established CCI.
Yuji Shinoda: Not in a thousand years! I could never work for a man like you.
Mitsuo Katagiri: Why not? We both have the same goals.
Yuji Shinoda: Boy that's a real laugh. Godzilla needs to be studied. He's a gold mine of knowledge. But you couldn't care less! You just want to kill him before we can fully analyze him.
Mitsuo Katagiri: And in the meantime, he just levels ...

Takes the nasty taste of TriStar's disaster right out!
29 December 2000 | by StevezillaSee all my reviews

This film is a delight! It was SO COOL to see the "Big G" on the big screen again, minus Devlin & Emmerich's "retooling" (emphasis on "tool") The crowd that afternoon was small, but enthusiastic. Granted, the dialogue is just as stilted as previous films, but still fun. And "fun" is the operative word here. Whereas the aforementioned Tristar release was somber and bloodless, this one brings back the sheer joy of the original series with the verve of the Heisei series. Highly recommended!
