Rating: C -- There's a sort of plebian engagement and value in these collected snapshots, but they don't really fit together in any compelling fashion. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- Not only is it an interesting watch, but it'll serve as a richly telling piece showing what really happened during this monumental day in history for years and years to come. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- There are numerous times when one wishes the camera would remain on one of its many fascinating subjects and tell a more in-depth story. Full Review

...The movie stays true, with a kind of demented affection, to the atomic age pop that inspired [cheers]... -- Rating: B

Rating: 3/5 -- I've seen the documentary twice now, months apart, and it seemed quite different on a second viewing. Years from now it'll be something else, and years after that, too. Full Review

Product Description:

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 Synopsis:

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.
