comments = Great movie. I have followed godzilla for nearly 20 years
and i must say the american version a couple of years ago was awful.
It's nice to see the real godzilla back in action. Hope to see many
more original looking godzilla movies in the future.

comments = This film, although containing relatively bad dubbing and
sub-par special effects to Hollywood (hey, they just did not have the
money)is downright great! Godzilla looks cooler then ever, and he
has a really neat foe to fight this time. This film may seem like a
fan movie (and it is) but it is also appealing to kids with it's numerous
action sequences (if not really for it's story). Of all the
"big budget" films of this summer, I found this one to be the
most entertaining. So take the kids to see Godzilla, or take
yourself, if your in to that king of thing.

comments = Truly a magnificent movie. It's nice to see the original
Godzilla back in action. I've been a fan for over 30 years. Really one of
the best movies to keep with the tradition.

Great movie. It was great to see the real Godzilla back in action. The
music was just like the old days. The tanks, fighter jets, and missiles
are like before. Watching the first scene with Godzilla munching on
a ship was good. It isn't his fault those things are in his way when
he goes out. I am ready for the next movie. The Godzilla in the
American version should have been name "the attack of the giant
iguana" or "iguana attacks New York"

I actually saw this movie on accident. I was never into Godzilla but now I
am. This movie was much better than the American Matthew B. version a few
years ago. The film dragged a little in the midlle and the last fight
sequence could have been better, but overall it was a grat Godzilla flick.
score = 100
I loved Godzilla 2000 the movie it was worth my money to see more than
once. The part that I liked the most was when Godzilla was started
to be consumed by Orga then Godzilla blasted Orga from the inside out and
Orga exploded intomany pieces. Thanxz....

It was good to see the REAL Godzilla again. Indestructible, treading on
buildings, the original roar, the original theme music, the guy in the
rubber suit--all of the classic hallmarks were back. The movie starts off
great, with about 20 straight minutes of non-stop Godzilla. Classic Big G
vs. the military action. Cool stuff. Unfortunately, Godzilla disappears
from the film for a long period of time and the movie starts to drag in
the middle. But he makes a good comeback and the last half hour is all
Godzilla. The climactic battle is not one of the best monster fights I've
seen, but it was sufficiently entertaining. It was certainly better than
anything in that putrid American/Mathew Broderick/Dean Devlin version. The
enemy monster is suprisingly nameless, which I found strange, since
Godzilla's foes usually have cool names. He/it reminded me a little of the
Smog Monster, and a little of Biolante, the way it kept metamorphasising.
I liked his altered look, with the big, sharp dorsal spines. But then I
believe this is a new Godzilla, (Godzilla Jr.?) reborn after the original
Godzilla's death at the end of 'Destroya'. (Strangely, those events are
never referred to in this film. Everyone speaks as if this was the
one-and-only, original Big G!)And the effects are quite good. His
movements are enhanced by CGI, and he looks awesome when he spits his
Atomic breath! I particularly liked the scene where he is swimming under
water. All-in-all, this is a good entry to the series. Better than
'Godzilla's Revenge', 'Godzilla On Monster Island', 'Megalon', 'Cosmic
Monster', and 'The Terror of MechaGodzilla'. But not as good as the
earliest films or the post 85 Hesei flicks. It's clearly FAR superior to
the horrible American version. I'd give it 6 & a half out of 10.
score = 80
I saw this movie and I am so happy that the children finally get to see
the real Godzilla in action on the big screen. The fake lizard Godzilla,
made in America really took the fun away. This film is really a comeback!

My 9 year old son and I saw this film today and it was the most enjoyable
dad-son cinema experience we've shared in a long time. G's design was far
more interesting than his American counterpart's. The pyrotechnics and
special effects improve in sophistication with each Godzilla outing.
"Godzilla 2000" was as satisfying as a good rollercoaster ride.

I saw this movie and i give it an 8 on a scale from 1 to 10. I cant
wait to see it here in America i hope they just dubb the movie and dont
edit it in any way shape or form the way they did with Godzilla 84 a.k.a.
Godzilla85 here in the USA. They really messed up that movie when it
came here to America. I just wish the 89 91 92 93 94 95 Godzilla movie's
could have come to the USA. David Nunez
me get my two gripes out of the way. Firstly, the dialogue is bad,
even for a Godzilla film. However, this worked to some advantage by
giving the audience here in Houston an occasional good laugh.
Secondly, the climactic battle between Godzilla and the alien creature was
rather bland, but only because the alien was so well designed. It
looked nastier than anything Godzilla's grappled with before, but it
didn't do much to capitalize on it's ferocity. That said, this has
basically what you want from a Godzilla film; a wild ride through
the middle of a Japanese city on the shoulders of a guy in a big, green,
rubber suit (Devlin & Emmerich, please take note!). Set after
set was sacrificed under the foot or flame of Godzilla in this picture,
and CGI effects, as well as traditional tricks, were used extensively to
give the films production value a good boost up from past giant monster
fare. The plot is secondary of course, but involves a
60,000,000 year old meteor/spaceship that is revived and wants to use
Godzilla's regenerative prowess to conquer Earth. Before Godzilla
can destroy the ship, it steals some of his regenerative ability and
creates a monster for him to battle. Again, a great look, but not
much else. It attemtps to absorb and 'morph' into another Godzilla
during the fight, but Godzilla has other plans in what amounts to the
strangest finale sequence ever. If you have any interest in seeing this
film, then you're probably a Godzilla fan to begin with. And rest
assured that this is the REAL Godzilla, not the bastardized American
version, which substituted a big, modern lizard for our favorite giant
dinosaur. However, Toho has, as they often have, slightly altered
his appearance by giving him a meaner look, with bigger, nastier spines.
The change is great, and of course Godzilla's staple radioactive fire
breath, ignored by the American release, is back and better than ever,
with CGI effects enhancing the blast. Watching the real Godzilla, on the
big screen in America for the first time in fifteen years, is a rare
treat. Kids will eat this up, of course, and their parent's (okay,
probably just the dads) will have fun reliving youthful memories of
Saturday afternoons with Godzilla movies of long ago. Not too often
can a film bridge a generation gap like this. Even without kids,
it's still worth a Saturday afternoon. Timeless is a word often used
in reference to artistic classics. Isn't it silly and wonderful that
we can include Godzilla in that context?
was an incredible movie...but in case the last guy never noticed... All
the Hesei Godzilla series have been dubbed and released in the USA on both
DVD and video cassette....David Mumez...u need need a smack in the
head...get your ass down to the nearest movie store (preferably Suncoast
Motion Picture company )and see for yourself...
