This 2001 Godzilla feature from Japan's Toho Studios, released as part of the mighty monster's 50th anniversary, is a visually impressive and action-packed entry in the long-running franchise, but also one with a fast and loose re-interpretation of its history that may displease some stalwart fans. Writer-director Shusuke Kaneko (who previously revitalized the Gamera series) erases everything that occurred after 1954's Godzilla and re-imagines the beast as a mythical creature harboring the souls of the Japanese victims of World War II; its attack is challenged by three "Guardian Monsters": Mothra, perennial villain King Ghidorah (here reinvented as hero) and B-list player Baragon (from Frankenstein Challenges the World). The retooling, while imaginative, is supported by spectacular special effects, but the monsters' brawls (a core reason for enjoying these films) seem abbreviated, and Kaneko's script experiences awkward seismic shifts from comedy to grim drama that may befuddle longtime G-fans. Columbia-Tri-Star's DVD is widescreen and offers Dolby Digital 5.1 sound and a Japanese language track (with English subtitles) that should please viewers with an aversion to dubbing. Trailers for other Sony/Columbia sci-fi titles like the American Godzilla feature are also included. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

Fifty years ago, the Japanese Defense Forces killed Godzilla(r) or so they thought. When a series of terrifying natural disasters begin to plague Japan, including the inexplicable offshore sinking of a U.S. submarine, a mystic old man warns his nation that Godzilla(r) has come back to destroy Japan as revenge for all the souls lost in the Pacific War. When mere military might can not squash the monster, the mystic man awakens the Holy Beasts of Yamato - King GhidorahTM, Mothra(r) and BaragonTM, sleeping giants that protected Japan in ancient times. These untamed mammoth beasts take on Godzilla(r) with frightening supernatural brute power that has been 2,000 years in the making. Tradition and technology collide in this chilling high-tech, cutting-edge fable.

5.0 out of 5 stars EVIL!!!!! December 31, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I've seen the region 3 disc of this film and I must tell you all. THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST GODZILLA MOVIES EVER MADE! The opening credit sequence sets the tone nicely giving close up shots of the monster's skin as if displaying their battle armor. The first battle between Godzilla and Baragon is a great kaiju battle! Godzilla literally knocks through a hillside to battle Baragon killing the people below! Run and hide because he means business! Its just very well filmed and choreographed and the musical score does the film justice. Amazing stuff!

Godzilla has more of a dinosaur-like look to him but I have never seen Godzilla be more evil since the dark and gloomy original. If you like Godzilla then this film is an absolute must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kaneko Runs This Show November 15, 2003
Format:DVD
Shusuke Kaneko is the man behind the recent trilogy of Gamera films that turned the giant turtle from film camp to excellent cinema. He changed the creature's origin to that of myth and gave the movies a great script, close human involvement, amazing special effects (the last entry rivalling standard effects,) and leaving a breath of wonderful imagination over the series. But Kaneko wasn't done. He wanted to make a Godzilla movie.
With "Godzilla-Mothra-King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack," he has brought everything from that Gamera series to Godzilla. The human drama is interesting, the pain of the Japanese people is realistic, the monsters look great... This very well may be one of the best Godzilla movies yet made.
This is one of the movies that ignores all others except the first. Godzilla appeared in 1954, was defeated, and has not been seen since. However, there are those who believe that the monster will reappear, such as the current Japanese Admiral. A submarine has been destroyed off of Japan, and a submersival has discovered it, as well as catching a glimpse of something's spines beneath the water.
The Admiral's daughter, Yuri, is a reporter for a local tabloid TV station. She believes she may have caught on to something real, but her boss won't let her pursue it. Soon, reports of monsters appearing spread over Japan. An old man tells Yuri that they are the Sacred Beasts, guardian monsters who will defend Japan when Godzilla returns... and boy, does he ever return. No longer the spawn of the atomic bomb, Godzilla is now composed of the souls of those who died in the wars of the Pacific, exacting their revenge for being forgotten.
The story is involving and it's nice to care so much about the humans (for a change in these movies.) But that's not all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grey and mean! March 22, 2004
Format:DVD
This is an interesting episode in the Godzilla saga. Once again TOHO has re-written Godzilla's past. In this story, Big G has not been seen since 1954, but everyone has a funky feeling he'll return one day. And he does. But this time, there are three Guardian Monsters- Baragon, Ghidorah, and Mothra- to stop him.
This is a very mystical film that may be hard to fathom by American audiences. For example, Godzilla is powered by the souls of those who lost their lives in the Pacific War. So he is now a force of vengence, and not a "force of nature" as stressed in previous movies. Bad guy Ghidorah is now a good guy. Baragon is a lame monster. TOHO won't learn- 4 legged monsters just don't work (it's obvious the man inside is walking around on all fours).
One thing that really sets this apart is that Godzilla is seen killing people. Folks get trampled, burned, and buried under rubble and earth by Big G. This Zilla has a bad attitude.
Japanese, with English subtitles. A nice addition to your Big G collection. Now if only they would re-make King Kong vs. Godzilla.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best kaiju movie, ever! April 2, 2004
Format:DVD
This one just blew me away when I saw it. Just freakin' awesome! The only films that even compare, technically, are the 3 Gamera films by the same director. I love Gamera and all, but Godzilla stomps all over him! In this film, Godzilla returns to Japan to avenge those who died in the Pacific War and he has never been meaner. His eyes are pure white, giving him a demonic look about him and his fire breath unleashes all of the power of an atomic blast, mushroom cloud and all. Every time the combined might of the military and the 3 opposing guardian beasts threaten to stop his relentless destruction, the big guy pulls another trick out of his sleeve and just devastates. You will truly cheer for the villain in this film. The lead Japanese actress is adorable and does a great job with her character, and the supporting cast is good as well. I think what impressed me most about this film was Mothra. No longer can you practically see the wire holding her up as her wings slowly flap and propel her at a leisurely pace across miniature sets. This Mothra dodges and swoops between buildings at breakneck speed and even fires stingers from her abdomen. Pretty awesome stuff! The shots of Baragon travelling through the forest are beautifully done as well. Ghidora is the least impressive, but most powerful, of the trio of guardian beasts. Still, the part where he bites Godzilla and shocks him is pretty darn cool. I disliked the ending, but due to the content of the rest of the film, I'm willing to accept it and bestow the highest honor I can give a film of any genre: a five star, absolute must-see rating.
