Editor's Note
Godzilla (Tsutomo Kitagawa) is back and this time he's trying to smash and destroy all of Japan's nuclear reactors and power plants. In this 23rd film in the cult series of monster movies that began in 1954, GODZILLA 2000 beckons the giant, indestructible lizard from his hiding place deep in the ocean. A local scientist (Takehiro Murata) who tries to decode the giant lizard's motives and predict where his next terrifying steps will land concludes that there must be a reason why Godzilla has emerged from the sea. However, when a 6,000-year-old meteor surfaces from the bottom of the ocean and turns into a spaceship, Godzilla--along with the entire population of Japan--is overwhelmed by chaos, crisis, and hysteria.

Yuki (Naomi Nishidi), a local journalist trying to get a close-up shot of Godzilla, along with Shinoda (Takehiro Murata) and his kid daughter (Mayu Sizuki), form a guerilla research group called the GPN (Godzilla Prediction Network). They are the "good guys," making the CCI (Crisis Control Intelligence), headed up by a hilariously nihilistic Katagiri (Hiroshi Abe), the "bad guys." Takao Okawara's GODZILLA 2000 is perfectly consistent with its predecessors: the monsters are nasty and ferocious and they wipe out every skyscraper in Tokyo, literally leveling the city. The film brings back all the old tricks, with special effects akin to the Godzilla films of yore and plenty of monster mania.

Plot Summary
The 23rd in the cult series of Japanese monster movies that began in 1954, GODZILLA 2000 beckons the giant, indestructible lizard from his hiding place deep in the ocean. This time, Godzilla has emerged and marched into Tokyo (chomping down an ocean tanker in the process) to fight a different kind of enemy: an alien spaceship named Orga that also appears as a large rock. When the ship is pulled off the ocean floor by a team of scientists, Orga first morphs into a sleek, silvery triangular spacecraft, then sucks all the data out of Tokyo's computer tower, including genetic information on Godzilla, becoming the ultimate enemy: a slimy octopuslike beast that attempts to swallow Godzilla whole. GODZILLA 2000 brings back all the old tricks and plenty of monster mania.

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"...The movie wastes no time cutting to the chase....Compounding the fun is the awfulness of dialogue that has been hilariously (and badly) dubbed into English..." 08/18/2000 p.E12

USA Today
"...It's heartening to see that this nuclear-age beast hasn't lost his angry edge..." 08/18/2000 p.8E

Entertainment Weekly
"...The movie stays true, with a kind of demented affection, to the atomic age pop that inspired [cheers]..." -- Rating: B 09/01/2000 p.57

Chicago Sun-Times
"...Uproarious....A contempo B-movie that is in perfect keeping with the original GODZILLA....This Godzilla is the big, lumbering brute we know and love..." 08/18/2000 p.33

Daily Herald 6 of 10
The most cheerfully preposterous film to come along in quite a while. Even the most jaded filmgoers - Peter Sobcyznzki
