In it, Japan is threatened not only by Godzilla, but by a gigantic flying monster and its legions of hungry larva. As the monsters go at it, the Japanese miltary scrambles to destroy all them all.

The 'Millenium' series, the third Godzilla film series, began in 1999 with "Godzilla 2000: Millenium". It was followed by this film - "Godzilla vs. Megaguirus". The premise involves a seemingly crazy idea: launch a black hole on to Godzilla, absorbing and containing him so he can't stomp on Japan anymore. The idea turns out to be not so crazy after all, and so a test firing is done. Unfortunately, while the test seems successful, it creates a wormhole, mutating a dragonfly and creating a horde of vicious, large dragonflies.

"Godzilla 2000", while fun, was not a spectacular movie. "Megaguirus" is a considerable improvement. Although it has its share of hokey moments (not the least of which is Godzilla leaping four-hundred feet into the air), it features an interesting storyline and a good script, not to mention a terrific score (by Michiru Oshima). The highlight of the film is the opening sequence, in which the story of the original 1954 Godzilla film is re-created using the new suit.

While "Godzilla vs. Megaguirus" can't compare to some later entries in the 'Millennium' series - namely "Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah" - it's a fine Godzilla movie that should please fans. Be sure to stick around after the credits ...

REJOICE! TriStar is finally releasing Godzilla films in JAPANESE with ENGLISH SUBTITLES-the way they should be seen. (There's a dubbed version on this disc as well if you still want that childhood feeling of watching a monster movie on Saturday morning). Not only do we get the original Japanese, we also get 5.1 stereo and enhanced widescreen (which is VERY important with a subtitled film when you watch it on a widescreen TV).
As for the film itself: well, chances are you haven't seen this entry in the series. This is the first time it's been available in the U.S. It immediately follows up "Godzilla 2000," although it isn't really a direct sequel (the history of Godzilla is played around with a bit.) It improves immensely on "Godzilla 2000," offering more Godzilla, more science-fiction gadgets and super-weapons, more wacky science, more monster fights, and pretty much all the rubber-suited butt-kicking you could ever want in a Godzilla film. This one has it all, and the effects are clever and fun. The music is also some of the best to thunder through a G-movie since the sixties.
New Godzilla director Masaaki Tezuka is a huge fan of the series, and it shows. This is a fast, fun, fan-pleasing film. And Godzilla is at his best here; a force of lethal destruction, an accidental hero, and someone you do not want to mess with! Godzilla shows more personality here than he has in the last couple of films. You'll root for him and cheer him on during his knock-down drag-out fantastic battle with the baddie monster: a giant insectoid creature called Megaguirus (a spawn from a black hole!).
There are some problems: a few effects just don't work, Godzilla engages in a moment of incredibly silly behavior, and the logic behind much of the science is pretty darn ludicrous.

Godzilla Vs. Megaguirus 5 Stars

Over the past fifty years, Japan has suffered untold destruction at the hands of Godzilla, but now Japan may have the weapon to stop him: The Dimension Tide. Unfortunately, the Dimension Tide itself has created a new threat: the monstrous insect Megaguirus, a creature that even Godzilla may not be able to kill. While the fate of the world lies in the hands of a beautiful young military officer and a brash young scientist, the battle for survival begins between the Queen Bug and the King of the Monsters.

(WARNING: SPOILERS:)

Have you ever noticed how divisive G-fans are? No two can ever agree about the same plot point or the same special effects shot. This is both good and bad. It's good to know that they all have their own viewpoints about Godzilla and are not afraid to say so. It's bad though that sometimes these G-fans just seem to hate a Godzilla movie just because it's different and refuse to acknowledge that even a Godzilla film they hate, might still be enjoyed by someone else.

I personally have enjoyed every Godzilla film I have seen to date and refuse to dismiss any of them out of hand.

Now back to the point: Godzilla Vs. Megaguirus rocks!

Yes the movie is silly and illogical, but that's because it ISN'T REALITY! Why anyone would go to see a Godzilla to see reality is beyond me. I take each Godzilla movie by their rules and leave it at that.

I've got to start talking about Godzilla because this review is beginning to sound self-righteous. . . .

The human characters and plots are interesting and logical, nothing that dominates or contributes to the screen over the monsters (as usual).

Now to what's important: the Monsters!!!!

Godzilla vs. Megaguirus (aka Godzilla x Megaguirus) is a spectacular film in its own right. As a homage to the classic showa (1954-1975) Godzilla films, "GxM", as its known in the kaiju fandom, excells in almost every respect. The action-packed plot and pacing coupled with great special effects (most of the time) and believable actors makes for a great godzilla film for the 20th century. As an obsessive Godzilla enthusiast, I enjoyed the film a great deal, and recommend it to all kaiju fans.
Movie Rating: 9 out of 10
As for the DVD itself, the picture quality is astonishing. The widescreen video is sharp and clean. Perfect! The 5.1 dobly digital sound is astoundingly pounding and equally perfect. 28 chapter stops are included as well. But the addition of the original Japanese audio track is what really shines in this release. Unfortunately, the english subtitles for the track are not subtitles at all, but rather "dubtitles" taken almost directly from the dubbed english track of the film. This means that the subtitles are not always completely faithful to the original script. But this doesn't pose too much of a problem as the dub is faithful enough as it is. The only other extras on the DVD are trailers for other Sony DVD releases.
DVD rating: 9 out of 10 (one point deducted for dubtitles)
