3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good film, terrible DVD release., 13 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Godzilla 2000 [All Region] [import] (DVD)
Godzilla returns to Japan and in no time buildings are being destroyed and there's a UFO polluting the air with its poisonous fumes. Not only that, but aliens intend to take over the world with a monster created from Godzilla's self-regenerating body cells.

After the awful US version, any Godzilla film was going to look like a masterpiece by comparison. This is quite an enjoyable entry in the series. It doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is - a monster stomp-about - and Godzilla has a new design and looks meaner than ever. The film does suffer from some pacing problems. After a series of exciting early scenes, nothing much happens until later on when the, admittedly interesting, alien monster appears.

What really ruined my enjoyment of this film were the abominable english subtitles. They are so badly translated it's often impossible to take the dialogue seriously. There are such gems as "the weapon can punctual Godzilla's thick hide" and "a new empire will be borned". If you think they're bad, there's worse. Some of the subtitles make no sense at all. Added to that is a wobbly picture which makes the film look like it was recorded off some bootleg/pirate video cassette version. The film itself is a promising start to a new Godzilla era, but this DVD release leaves a lot to be desired.
