Wars and pollution, relentless fighting and environmental destruction, have all awakened vicious monsters. Humankind therefore joins forces with one another in order to drive off the monsters, instead of killing each other. Thus, the Earth Defense Force is born. Meanwhile, a new race of humans with supernatural abilities, called mutants, was discovered around the globe.

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 »
Though the film is already filled with references to past Godzilla movies, the German dub adds a new one by referring to the monster Gigan with the code-name "Monster Zero", as a nod to the film Invasion of Astro-Monster in which King Ghidorah had that designation. See more »

Didn't like the US Godzilla/Gojira?
Neither did the makers of this movie ... that's why they took the US-Godzilla "for a ride here"! But that's not the only creature from the Gojira/Godzilla past that is brought back. I don't if every creature is on display here, that was in a previous movie, but there quite a few of them. So if you know your Gojira movies, you'll have plenty to enjoy from those "cameos" alone!
You might have guessed it already, but this movie doesn't take itself serious, too. It's a great fun ride and it never aims for anything else than this promise. And since it delivers on that promise/premise, it's a pretty good movie (for me at least)! You will even enjoy it, if you're not familiar with the back story of Gojira, just bare in mind, that this is mostly old-school effects (man in costume kind of effects, so to speak). There are occasionally a few CGI, but it's mostly old school. And that's the fun of it! So it just depends on your expectations, on how you'll like the movie ...
