Product Description

Picking up where the blockbuster motion picture left off, Godzilla: The Series is a fast-paced animated adventure series that pits humanity against a new generation of giant monsters. This DVD features a three-part, pulse-pounding monster hunting adventur

Based on the much-maligned 1998 American Godzilla feature (including the revamped creature design), the animated Godzilla: The Series (1998-2000) actually hews much closer to the original films from Japan, as illustrated in this exciting, three-part episode from the first season. The storyline, which borrows heavily from Destroy All Monsters, has alien invaders take control of the mutated creatures that Godzilla and H.E.A.T. (Humanitarian Ecological Analysis Team) tangled with in the previous 13 episodes of the season-including the Godzilla that rampaged through New York in the theatrical feature, but now augmented with robotic parts (shades of Mecha-Godzilla!). The Monster Wars Trilogy manages to pack considerable excitement and suspense in its brief running time (just over an hour), and benefits greatly from a fine vocal cast, which includes Joe Pantoliano, Paget Brewster, and Kevin Dunn, reprising his role from the theatrical film. No extras are included. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars Monster Wars Rocks August 24, 2004
So this is basically the sweetest cartoon ever. I have been a fan of the series since it first aired, and never ever thought in a million years they would release any of the series on DVD. Monster Wars is well worth the wait. This episode follows the H.E.A.T. Team around as they work to stop aliens from taking over the world. This three part episode is actually a sequel to an earlier episode, in which tells the story of how the aliens got to earth and their plans to take it over. These episodes are action packed, and the voice acting is wonderful, along with the animation. One of the best three parts of the series.

As for the DVD packaging, it was actually done quite well. The slipcase is colorful and provides a description of each episode on the back. The insert is a double sided slip sleeve, the front a theatrical poster if you will for the Monster Wars Trilogy, and the other side advertisements for other Columbia Tri-Star productions. The DVD itself features Godzilla on the label.

The menu screen is very basic, letting you choose either to view all episodes, go to them seperately, or turn on or off subtitles.

This DVD is a must have for any fan, and is well worth the money. I am glad that this has been released, and can only hope that someday the whole series will be released on DVD.

1.0 out of 5 stars Afraid to Order February 10, 2014
I wanted to order this "series" but it claims the entire series is only 30 minutes long. Is that an error? I hope so.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Monster Wars" leaves questions unanswered March 15, 2006
I've seen this Godzilla cartoon like a hundred times since I purchased it (for my son), and am still plagued with puzzling questions about the storyline. It supposedly takes off where the 1999 "Godzilla" movie staring Matthew Broderick left off; the opening sequince showing bits and charachters recognizable from the movie, and the main charachter having the same name. The credits are decietful. The show opens with Nick Tatopoulos apparently having "tamed," or even acting as a sort of adoptive "parent" to the hatchling child of Godzilla shown in the last scene of the live action film. However, the cartoon takes off with an enormous gap between the film and this new situational setup, making reference to a battle with aliens apparently won by Dr. Tatopoulos and the human race, but not before the aliens implanted mind control devices in several key human scientists and resurrected the original godzilla, assumed dead in the live-action film, via cyborg interface with organic tissue. All of this plot takes place off screen and is only referenced by the cartoon charachters, who I can only gather have been waging an ongoing study of and battle with these alleged aliens, as well as various other mutated creatures in addition to Godzilla that turn up in this animated "series." As well the title "Monster war Trilogy" is an unfit title for this series of animated tidbits. It's more like the middle of a sequil to the 1999 film, where you don't get to see the beginning, and lose interest before the end. I guess the creators felt since the cartoon audience would most likely be attention-lacking youth, and you can't really make a series with no plot, it wouldn't really matter if the one they fabricated made sense or not.

This is a very good story here, but, to fully enjoy it you need to see the earlier episiodes. Why the BIG WIGS chose to release this three part story is obvious. They want to milk this series before releasing the box set of the first season.(There are two seasons to this series. I know because I have almost all, if not all, episodes on tape recorded off of tv(you can never be sure, because, tv execs don't always air all episodes.)

Anyways, I love the series and it follows right after the 1998 american made godzilla movie.(Why are people always slamming the 1998 movie I don't know because I loved it. It was well directed, great story, strong cast, good musical score and fanstasic action sequences!(what more could anybody ask?) So BIG WIGS, if you're reading this review please release the entire series on DVD, because, I'm not going to buy individual episodes since I have them on tape.

As a side point, I have been a fan of Godzilla since I was a kid back in the sixties. I know good Godzilla movies from crap.(i.e. GODZILLA'S REVENGE pure crap! plastering pieces from other movies with a weak story line about a stupid kid is lame milk money.)

2.0 out of 5 stars Only for young kids or fans of this series August 27, 2004
By John
Since it's now common for an entire season of a TV show to be released at once, it's pretty surprising that this release is only 3 episodes (and with a total running time of barely 60 minutes). Apparently these 3 episodes were chosen due to popularity (and similarity to the 1968 film "Destroy All Monsters") but if you aren't already a fan of this show you're going to be hopelessly lost, since these episodes come from the middle of the first season and make a lot of references to things that happened previously.

Due to the few episodes and the lack of any setup or introduction of the characters, this DVD is only going to be of interest to people who were fans of the original cartoon or to very young children who'll probably enjoy seeing the monsters fight each other (but may be very bored by all the human "drama"). Ultimately this disc seems like a quick attempt to capitalize on the upcoming 50th Anniversary of the original Godzilla.
