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.
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 ›
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.Read more ›
The special effects are superb and Godzilla looks very different since the showa and heisei series, but its still the same guy in the monster suit that destroys buildings and everything else quite frankly.
His opponent in this starts out to be a six hundred pound rock (alien species naturally) and then morphs into a Biollante sort monster. While some of the film drags, the monster scenes are fantastic and the climatic showdown near the end is unmissable.
If your a Godzilla fan like me, theres only three words GO FOR IT!!

Godzilla, what can I say, he's great, I love him. The films are all amazing. Not to everyone's taste, but that's life.Published on 10 May 2013 by Sue
Neither the audio, nor the subs, in its original Japanese language. There's not a single decent extra that justifies its bought. A pitty of an edition.Published on 10 Jan. 2013 by Rick Grimes
