Performers, Cast and Crew:
New York Times - 08/18/2000
"...The movie wastes no time cutting to the chase....Compounding the fun is the awfulness of dialogue that has been hilariously (and badly) dubbed into English..."
USA Today - 08/18/2000
"...It's heartening to see that this nuclear-age beast hasn't lost his angry edge..."
Entertainment Weekly - 09/01/2000
"...The movie stays true, with a kind of demented affection, to the atomic age pop that inspired [cheers]..." -- Rating: B
Chicago Sun-Times - 08/18/2000
"...Uproarious....A contempo B-movie that is in perfect keeping with the original GODZILLA....This Godzilla is the big, lumbering brute we know and love..."
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.
