Five years after Godzilla(r) terrorized the city of Osaka, Japanese scientists have developed a sure-fire way to finally destroy Japan's monster nemesis. They have created the world's first man-made black hole, which will trap Godzilla(r) for eternity! But during a testing of this new Dimension Tide, an insect caught in the hole mutates, producing gargantuan eggs that give birth to a new menace : giant dragonfly monsters called Meganula . Meganula queen, the 50-meter Megaguirus , is also on a hunt for Godzilla(r), needing to steal his energy to survive. From the sky down to the depths of a city'sunderground sewer tunnels, Megaguirus , Godzilla(r), and humankind battle for supremacy. Who will prevail in this high-tech, three-way battle of terror and destruction?

The DVD is in its original 2.35:1 aspect ratio. Being a relatively recent movie, it looks nice, with good bright colours and few scratches. Unlike many Godzilla DVDs, both to original Japanese audio and English dubs are included (which should be appreciated by purists). There are no special features besides trailers for a few other Columbia Tristar DVDs, which is a bit of a shame. Production notes, Japanese trailers, or liner notes are all I ask.
The plot, as with most of the movies in the somewhat unofficial Godzilla Millenium series, is discontinuous and ignores all other Godzilla movies in the Millenium series, including the events of Godzilla 2000. Basically, it's a new Godzilla every single movie.
The director for this movie is NOT the same as the one for Godzilla 2000, and that also explains the different feel of this movie. Only the costume and effects remain the same. For your information, the director who worked on Godzilla 2000 also worked on Godzilla vs Destroyah and Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla in the 90's Godzilla series...which were all some of the best Godzilla movies. If you are one of those people, like me, who found those 3 movies great but the ones in-between so-so, and didn't really know why, well now you do.
The "Story" if you can call it that is pretty ludaris even for a Godzilla Film... a lot of "stupid-ness" takes place: Example, the begining has some G-Graspers attacking Godzilla with bazooka's (pointless). If the whole idea of making a Black Hole gun to suck Godzilla in is not crazy enough - the point of the G-Graspers keeping it "Top Secret" doesn't make sence... neither is testing it near a residential area... Is Godzilla going to watch the news and find out?
If your a G-Fan like me then you'll probably get this just to add it to your collection.... but if you just want to see a really good Godzilla movie take a look at GMK: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack(amazing directing) or Godzilla 2000.
That's right, there's plenty of Godzilla...well, enough to keep me from wondering what happened to him. Aside from the Big G, there's also Meganulla and Megaguirus - and they also get plenty of screentime.
And let me just say that Godzilla is hilarious in this movie! Sure, he's destructive, and still looks mean, but he does indeed do some bizarre things when he's fighting Megaguirus.
All in all, the Monster Scenes in the movie deliver. And it's all spread out in good doses, unlike other Godzilla movies where there are noticable lapses in Monster Action.
And when there's no Monster Action, the Human Scenes keep us entertained. They're fun and they're campy - just the way they should be in a Godzilla movie.
As for the characters, there doesn't appear to be any memorable characters, but that doesn't stop this movie from delivering memorable lines!
MEMORABLE DIALOGUE #1
KUDO - Bodybuilding, huh? What a waste of time!
MAJOR FUJIMORI - What's that?
KUDO - Why do you want to be fit when we're gonna make Godzilla disappear up his own butthole?
MEMORABLE DIALOGUE #2
Fujimori is crouching down to talk to the little kid, and he recognizes her uniform:
LITTLE KID - Say, are you a G-GRASPER?
FUJIMORI - Yes, I am.
LITTLE KID - But you're a woman. So how come you're fighting Godzilla?
(Fujimori doesn't even answer)
MEMORABLE DIALOGUE #3
After Kudo tries desperately to contact Fujimori on the radio, she finally replies:
FUJIMORI - "Why do you want to talk to me so badly? You gotta crush on me or something?"
Make no mistake: this movie's great! Both the Human Scenes and the Monster Scenes are great fun. And you see plenty of Godzilla in this movie. One of my favorites!

This movie is pretty good, but nothing special. The SFX aren't very well done (i.e. the way Megaguirus' wings fly fast, the garbage cans flying into the air at the beggining,) and... Read morePublished on Jan. 1 2006 by RICK
