Talkback #23: Godzilla 20003,194 Views3 RepliesAdd A Reply
Yuji Shinoda, and his daughter Io, are the Godzilla Prediction Network; a private company Shinoda founded to warn Japan of Godzilla's attacks. Conversely, Crisis Control Intelligence, a government operated agency, aims to destroy Godzilla. When an alien ship rises from the ocean it forces Shinoda and his former CCI colleagues to join forces. Together they discover the alien life form intends to model itself after Earth's dominant creature: Godzilla himself.
This is my second favorite millennium series Godzilla film. The first is Gmk. Godzillas design is awesome. The story is fair, the characters are okay, and I actually think this is Kenji Sezuki's best work in special effects. I'm glad they used a red screen for the making of this film instead of the regular green screen.
This is also the first ever film to introduce Godzilla with a green skin than his normal grey colors. His roar is really good, and Orga wasn't that bad of an alien kaiju. Fun movie.

GMAN2887 - Oh, now this is one of those films for which I have mixed feelings. ON the one hand, I absolutely loved Godzilla's redesign and the overall dark tone of the special effects and story - it was spectacular! On the other hand, I felt that the film's plot and story arcs were somewhat flat; lacking the overll sense of urgency and utter amazement that would likely culminate due to the revelation of an alien spacecraft drawing the attention of Godzilla himself! With that being said, I very much enjoyed Godzilla 2000 as a whole! :)
This was the first Godzilla movie I saw in the actual theater, so this Godzilla film holds a very special place in my heart. Aside from that I really like how unique Godzilla looked in this film from his previous incarnations, and Orga is one of the most unique monsters ot come from the Godzilla movie series.
