Format: DVD
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).

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.

I bought this as I love the old Toho godzillas, even though it's incredibly hard to find UK format DVDs of them (loads of NTSC versions, no PAL ones, so unless you have a region-free DVD player you're stuck), and this was one of the few UK-compatible ones around. It's got Polish subtitles, but is dubbed in English and so perfectly understandable.

As for the plot - well, it does everything you'd expect from a Toho style Godzilla film, but with better effects - although still the classically cheesy 'men in suits' type monsters, I hasten to add, as where would the fun be without them?! The basic premise of the film is that Godzilla's lain buried in ice for the past few decades after being 'put there' by us humans, so he's fairly annoyed at us, it's fair to say (!), and in that time, mutant humans have evolved with amazing fighting skills (martial arts style). However, as you'd expect, an evil character arrives who has trapped a load of evil monsters, and releases them one by one into all the major cities of the world to wreak havoc, and of course the mutant humans plus Godzilla come out to destroy them. All good stuff.

I have to warn any parents buying this for kids that there are a couple of scenes of 'minor' swear-word usages in it (literally only a couple), plus there are a couple of slightly scary bits, so it's definitely not one for very young kids!

However, aside from that, it's got all the classic monsters you'll remember from the 60s & 70s films - the armadillo that rolls into a ball of spikes, an octopus, a giant moth (Mothra, I think it's called), one my daughter calls "the doggy dinosaur", which looks like a giant, angry pug, basically (!), a snapping dinosaur-type one, a baby godzilla... and a few robot ones with chainsaw hands! All very very good, very entertaining stuff, with the expected cheesy dialogue and slightly cheesy effects, but in a good way!

We love this film!

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.
