    Shusuke Kaneko, helmer of the excellent 90s Gamera trilogy (nearly the only kaiju films that function as actual films and not soulless movie product that's churned out by an indifferent studio in order to fleece nerds and schoolchildren of their matinee money) was given the reigns to the Godzilla franchise just once, and despite being significantly hampered by Toho's sausage factory production methods and producer interference (they refused his original choice of monsters), he effortlessly one-ups the entire franchise in…

    For fans of an evil Godzilla who'd rather incinerate Japan than save it, this the movie for you. Essentially ignoring everything since the original (with a sly joke about the 90s American remake), this movie has everything you could ask in a modern Godzilla movie, made the old fashion way. The Fx are actually pretty good, with some great designs for the monsters and Mothra's colorful entrance is a particular highlight. The lead actors playing the veteran general and his…

    Overall a pretty good Godzilla movie with some good action scene's and lots of explosions( not in the michael bay way). Only do I have little problems with the design of Godzilla himself, his neck looks way to long in my opinion, looks almost like a giraffe. Still a pretty good one.

    Although it was really nice to see Godzilla as a villain again (complete with shout out head over the hill shot lifted from the original) I take issue with King Ghidorah becoming a pushover good guy that is powered by kaiju fairy dust.

    Even though Godzilla has too much of an upper hand in most of the kaiju battles, the action is enjoyable and the human vs. Godzilla battle is pretty worthy.

    Holy fuck, Godzilla is a bad motherfucker in this movie; his nuclear breath is blue again after the two previous Millennium films, the suit is a throwback to the classic black and white designs and he stomps and kills more civilians than in any other entry of the franchise. Mothra and Ghidorah are back too (along with a very resilient Baragon), and they have never looked better, in my opinion. The fights are outstanding and the destruction doesn’t seem to…

    The catch-22 of all Godzilla movies after the first one: the human parts are boring. But at the same time, nothing but rubber suits running into each other would be boring as well if we didn't have humans to add an emotional connection, and a sense of scale to emphasize the destruction. I think the guys who made this one realized that, and did their best to work around it: the human drama parts are sub-Spielberg treacle, but nevertheless charming,…

    This is where the Millennium Era of Godzilla shines the brightest. Taking Godzilla back to his roots at being a symbol of destruction. Godzilla is the villain here with three monster adversaries. There's Baragon, Mothra, and King Ghidorah.

    What a monster brawl. Godzilla is the one on the all-out attack. He annihilates everything in his path. You can feel the force and impact from his atomic breath. He also looks so incredibly evil here. Resembling more of the classic '54…

    The best part is when Mothra tries to murk Godzilla from behind and Godzilla turns around and blasts him into fairy dust.

    Slow build and a long fight with that dumbass Baragon, but the finale is glorious. Kaiju die and are resurrected repeatedly, magic rocks sparkle, its exactly what it wants to be.

    This movie was amazing in that it totally ignores the entire Godzilla series other than the original "Gojira". I actually like this move because the previous movies don't have any memorable plot points anyway. And outside of possibly 1968's "Destroy All Monsters" there is no other Godzilla flick with as many outstanding monster battles. There are some interesting shots and much better special effects especially Big G's atomic breath and the redesigned suit. With it's dismissal of all previous Godzilla…
