A perfect Godzilla
movie! Admittedly- I have every tacky item ever made in
the image of old Godzie. Yes, even the sheets with matching curtains-
of course those are in the guest room now. So, this is a biased review.
G2000's story goes...Godzilla is terrorizing Tokyo - per usual. The Godzilla Prediction Network has their eye on him. Of course he's not hard to really "predict" as the boy's 50 stories high! Geeze.
are raising a large "rock" formation from the deeps of the
sea- like 80 millions leagues. Some of the best fake scene shots
come from this little adventure. Wow! Sooo deep below the sea. Tah!
It's about 3 feet of H2O in a fish tank with a blur effect on the lens.
Looks JUST like we really, really are under water...NOT! Love
this movie. No Perfect Storm 30 million dollar budget here folks.
Probably two Tokyo University graphic design majors with a certification
in PhotoShop and a 50 gallon fresh water tank.
Anywho, the "rock" the scientists have unearthed is really a space ship-oddly shaped like a silver spray painted diaphragm -from another galaxy! It landed here over 60 million years ago. Wowsers! That's a long time ago- even before Godzilla. It's very Independence Day for a few minutes and Tokyo is holding their breath.
Oh, he's coming don't you worry
about that ... He's pissed off and gonna kick some alien butt. Of course
the alien has no form until it tries to CLONE itself into another
Godzilla. Ridiculous right? Perfect Godzilla.
If you loved Godzilla as a kid your gonna love this. There are no Xmen special effects, or Pokemon characters so your kids may be bored to tears. But , for the B movie loving crowd, this one's a keeper.
Snack recommendation: Sushi and sashimi take-away, with Saki
Starring: Takehiro Murata and Naomi Nishida and a lot of really unpronouncable Japanese actors whom we'll never recoginze anyway.
Directed by: Takao Okawara , TOHO Productions
