The 28th and supposedly "final" Godzilla film, "Godzilla: "Final Wars" was released in Japan in 2004 to mark the 50th anniversary of, unarguably Japan's biggest film star.
To mark this event, Toho Studios upped the budget, expanded the locations to China, Australia and America and bought in acclaimed action director Ryuhei Kitamura.
The result... well, it was always going to split fans down the middle. The movie is a drastic move away from the "traditional" Godzilla style and, for this viewer, a welcome one.
Plot wise, monsters go on the rampage but then disappear thanks to the arrival of seemingly "friendly" Aliens, who's intentions are anything but. Cue monsters again under alien control, and the only things that can stop them are wrestler Don Frye in his flying tank thing and... Godzilla!
Yes, the film rips-off "The Matrix" wholesale and the soundtrack - by English prog rocker Keith Emerson and US nu-metal band Sum 41 - is unlike anything ever heard in a Godzilla film, but it only adds to the charm of a movie that just wants to do its own thing. In many ways its reminiscent of the 1980 "Flash Gordon" - subtly just is not a factor here.
Toho even delved into their own back catalogue with references to the runaway planet Gorath (from "Gorath"), and Frye's ship the Goten (from "The War in Space") while the opening scenes also feature images from "War of the Gargantua's" and "Yog Monster From Space". And then there are the monsters... out of retirement come Angilas, Gigan and King Seesar, along with Rodan and Mothra... and more. Event eh US Godzilla (now called "Zilla") makes an appearance (along with the films best gag).

There was a time, in the 80's-early 90's when Godzilla films were always on TV. I taped a few at the time, cus I was a huge Godzilla fan. Where has he gone since?
I have realised that I haven't even seen half of the films they have made - 28. 'Godzilla' 98, 'Godzilla' original and 'King Kong vs Godzilla' are available, but I'm desperately waiting for them to release the lot. When?
People want them! Hurry Up! Why does America get everything?

This has to be the best Godzilla and genral Kaiju film since Destroy all Monsters. With a total of 15 monsters, great human and monster fighting, UFOs, Motorbike chases and The American Godzilla getting re-named as Zilla a giant desert lizard then getting beaten down by the real godzilla makes this film have its 5 star rating.
Althought the human action in this film is by far some of the best in a godzilla film its the monsters who make the film so good.
Their redesigned suits look great and with new attacks and epic city destroying. Monsters like Anguirus, Rodan, Keizer Ghidorah and Ebirah (in the best human vs monster battle ever) share in the king of the monsters thunder.
Then theirs the king of the monsters, Godzilla himself. Inwhich we see him at his very best and very strongest too date.
Lets just hope that final wars may not be Godzillas final.

Godzilla at its finest!

This has everything a Godzilla film could have - more monsters than you can shake a plastic Godzilla figure at!

There is a blatant rip off of the Matrix fight scenes in this films - but you don't mind this style being 'borrowed' considering the Hollywood treatment of Japans best known giant creature.

Speaking of which - the CGI Hollywood "GINO" appears in this film and promptly gets squidged by the real Godzilla. This was a nice move that we fans appreciate - especially with the comment in the film that that monster was once mistaken for the actual Godzilla.

This film shows how suitmation and models of cities can create a fantastic range of effects, just use a bit of imagination. This film is fun, stylish, and very enjoyable.

Celebrating the anniversary of the Big G in real style, i don't think i have seen a movie that is as simply entertaining in a long time, two hours just flew by. Essentially a jazzed up variation on Destroy all Monsters (Aliens control monsters, unleash monsters, humans fight back), Final Wars steals outrageously from every major US sci-fi film of the last fifteen years including The Matrix and Independence Day, but given the amount of ideas Hollywood has pinched from Japanese cinema i'm not really complaining. The monsters, all 15 of them are all given some great scenes, and look as good as they have ever done, Toho obviously spent some money on this monster bash and the film benefits from the great suit and set work, Big G himself doesn't show up properly until halfway through the picture, but is given a great entrance and is as mean and tough as ever.
Trying for something different this time, prog rocker Keith Emerson contributes to the score which kicks off with a beefed up version of the classic Godzilla theme and throws in typical synth beats and vocal work, it's not typical of a Godzilla film but it suits this film perfectly.
There is even a brief moment of reflection as Godzilla's rage is explained, and we hark back fifty years to what started this all in the first place, as i said at the start as a fan you will struggle to find a film that is as purely entertaining as this, it also features the most wicked cinematic in-joke at the expense of Godzilla's US counterpart that is worth the price of admission alone!
