GODZILLA 2000 (2000) - Takao Okawara

After the 1998 failure of reinventing Godzilla for American audiences, Toho brought the legendary kaiju back to its original roots: Campy cheesy fun. With a brand new upgraded look, Godzilla is now a man in a rubber costume once again, stomping freeways and punching buildings, wrecking everything in its path. This time, the King of Monsters finds himself pitted against an extraterrestial life form.

Godzilla 2000 follows the same template as its previous twenty-two films: The plotline is simply Godzilla versus another new monster. This time, it is a sixty million year old UFO, intending to drain Godzilla's DNA and create a new empire of aliens on Earth. Of course, it's up to the fire-breathing giant to stop it and save Tokyo... sort of.

Godzilla looks great as always, a giant rubber reptile suit rampaging around a miniature set of buildings, fighting against the enemy, known later as Orga. In terms of other iconic Godzilla monsters, Orga is a bit weaker but his conceptual design is quite interesting. For sure, he will lose to other famous rivals like Ghidorah or Destoroyah.

This is probably going to be one of my shortest reviews because when it comes down to a Japanese Godzilla movie, you know *exactly* what you are getting: Two rubber suits fighting each other in slow motion, epic music, screeching monster sound effects, a wacky story, bad acting, and horribly hilarious audio dubbing. Seriously, the dubbing is so ridiculously bad, it's hysterical.

In conclusion, Godzilla 2000 is the prime example of a Japanese Godzilla movie, and is one of the better ones too. In terms of a film, of course it is deliberate campy trash. However, if you are drunk or bored one night, and you grab ten of your college friends together to spend the night, a corny movie like Godzilla 2000 will be the most fun you will ever have. It is so bad, it's good. For me at least, the way the monsters walk toward each other already cracks me up.
