Editorial Reviews

Godzilla's 50th Anniversary project and costliest adventure to date out of 28 films. Earth has beenrelatively peaceful since Godzilla was successfully buried deep in ice beneath the South Pole. Then - sometime a few years hence-several of his old nemeses return to wreak havoc on cities worldwide. A huge spaceship suddenly appears and neutralizes all the monsters in a blink. The visitors are "Xiliens," who take human form and announce they would like to negotiate a peace treaty that would replace the United Nations with a "United Universe". They are indeed too good to be true, however. It doesn't take long before their nefarious real purpose is exposed - conquering Earth. Greatly outmatched, Earth officials decide to de-freeze Godzilla as man's only hope to vanish the invaders, as well as the monsters they control. Only trouble is Godzilla is still mad at man for freezing him in the first place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monsters, Monsters, and More Monsters February 14, 2006
Format:DVD
This remake of the classic Destroy All Monsters maintains the wonder of all those monsters but is darker in nature. Monsters are springing up all over the place attacking civilization. Then aliens arrive and eliminate the monsters. Are they our saviors or something much worse?

Eventually the truth about the aliens is learned and all out war ensues. The monsters return and it is up to a small group to go to Antarctica and release the imprisoned Godzilla. Hopefully Godzilla will handle the monsters while the people can handle the aliens. Monster mayhem ensues.

This movie is far better than Tokyo SOS. We see Manda in a more active role than previously as well as a number of other monsters from the early years of Godzilla. We even see the American Godzilla and an upgraded Gigan. There is a montage that shows Godzilla through the ages. The only thing I didn't like was seeing King Seesar as a villain. Seeing the alien leader have fits when things don't go right was almost priceless. All in all this is the Godzilla movie that really delivers what all the hype promised. Check it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome as Hell March 6, 2006
Format:DVD
As you may have gathered from my title, this movie is awesome. I suppose I'll get my two complaints out of the way. First of all it's not got quite the proper ratio of monster violence to other stuff. There's a whole lotta monster mashing, yes, but at 2 hours and 5 minutes it could've stood to have a little more, or just have been a bit shorter. The monster's generally look great, and they are, as a whole mostly of the rubber-suit variety, though there is quite a bit of CGI too, particularly for Zilla and the flying monsters. Still, they usually tried to use conventional fx so long as they were feasible, and they generally allow for the best results. I dunno about you, but there's just something about watching two dudes in rubber suits have a fist fight that makes me very, very happy. The only notable absence with regard to the monsters is the lack of Megalon, but what ya gonna do. Ya got Rodan, the Seamonster, Anguirah, King Ghidorah, Gigan, Mothra, the G-Man himself and more. I also would've liked to see a bit more city smashin'. If there's anything that I like more than watching to rubber-suited men duke it out, it's seeing a besuited man smash a miniature city. Particularly the tanks, definitely needed more tank smashing. My other major complaint is the lack of classic Godzilla music. The modern stuff is okay, generally, but I love the classic Godzilla themes, so they shoulda had more of that stuff. Nevertheless, these complaints are lost in a sea of deliciously cheesy dialogue, costumes, sets and monster action. Seriously, how anyone could watch this movie and not have a helluva good time is beyond me. Yes, it's got a bit too much people, not quite enough monsters, but that's always been the way with Godzilla movies, from my experience. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Great way to celebrate 50 years of Godzilla! October 8, 2005
Format:DVD
I'll just get this out of the way right now: Ryuhei Kitamura is one of my favorite directors. He's the Japanese equivalent of our Quentin Tarantino or Robert Rodriguez. He has an eye-catching visual style, the talent to write entertaining dialogue, and nobody in Japan does action better. He's also able to take pure cinematic cheese with elements of other genre films and meld them together in exciting ways that seldom fail to entertain, even if you occasionally roll your eyes. I'm also a lifelong kaiju fanatic who grew up watching Godzilla and Gamera on Saturday afternoons and saving up my shoddy allowance to buy the films on VHS. Ah, memories...
That said, my excitement level over this film was naturally huge. I consider the millenium series of Godzilla movies to be among the greatest, boasting decent special effects and serious storylines which past kaiju films were known for lacking. This movie takes all of the improvements in those areas and throws other aspects waaaaay back to the sixties and seventies, when the movies weren't afraid to not be taken seriously. The funny-dressing aliens we all remember are back with a vengeance, looking like cosplayers at a Matrix convention. Hilarious. Speaking of "The Matrix", Kitamura flaunts it's influence on his filmmaking shamelessly throughout this movie, creating a team of mutant humanoids that could have stepped right out of the film and have all of the over-the-top abilities we saw in that series. This makes for some very exciting non-kaiju fight scenes; a first in a Godzilla film. The characters are also among the first truly memorable heroes and villains in G-film history. After this, I might get into some minor spoilers, so if you want to see the movie without knowing anything about the plot, now's the time to leave.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great way to end a legendary film career June 3, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What else can be said about a Godzilla movie. You either love 'em or hate 'em. Toho was once asked why they never decided to make Godzilla a C.G.I. Monster, they replied that Godzilla will always be a "guy in a rubber suit". That's the charm of a Godzilla movie, but if you have never seen any of the Godzilla films made after 2000 you are in for a very big suprise! This flick, claiming to be the last in the saga, is a fitting end, if this is truly the case (we hope not). The plot is simple, Aliens, who claim to be friendly at first, come down to earth only to wreak havok by briging back all the world's monsters to destroy mankind. A special breed of "super humans" with great powers are sent to fight them off. When they can't do it alone, they have no choice but to awaken the sleeping Godzilla to help defend earth. Plenty of fast action, in fact the first 15 minutes of this film's sets the stage for what is to come. If you are a godzilla fan, I'm sure you will find your fav monster here. One great scene has the Amercian version of Godzilla appear, and our Japanese counterpart nails him with one quick blow of the tail (are the Japanese trying to tell us something?). Anyway, you will love the film, the action, the monsters, the soundtrack is very fast paced, perfect for a modern Godzilla movie. A great view by all. Highly reccomended!
