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).Read more ›
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!
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 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?
You get german with German subtitles or japanese with german subtitles
