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.
Godzilla 2000’s only real weakness is the story. We’re barely introduced to the main characters before Godzilla shows up and starts stomping his way toward energy sources, including a nuclear plant. The writers apparently didn’t want anything, including character development, getting in the way of their good, old-fashioned, Tokyo-stomping fun. Snippets of backstory are added to a couple of characters but are never developed at all. A larger problem is, of course, the English dubbing. Tri-Star actually forked out a good deal of money to secure this film’s American theatrical release, shaving off about seven minutes of running time and adding far too many classic American expressions like “Great Caesar’s Ghost” and “Bite me.Read more ›
At least he gets a great entrance, attacking a lighthouse in an homage to The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms, the lighthouse keeper following a boat that appears at his window to reveal it's firmly clenched between the big feller's jaws a hundred feet or so in the air. There are some fairly good moments in the early scenes as he makes his presence felt in the neighborhood, but after the buildup he's quickly forgotten. No-one really seems that bothered by Godzilla's reappearance, not because he's gone on the rampage so many times it's no longer newsworthy (which might have been an interesting angle to pursue) but because the film can't summon up much energy about anything. Even the human story is only sketchily filled in, more one suspects out of disinterest than an attempt at subtlety.Read more ›
