Godzilla 2000 [DVD] [1999]

He's back, he's green, and he's mean in the monster hit Godzilla 2000. Columbia's work on this 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer is very nice. With bold, bright colors and well saturated black levels, the transfer is nearly clear of any defects, save for a small amount of grain in a few key scenes. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround, both in a dubbed English soundtrack. The 5.1 mix features a very full range of effects in both the front and rear speakers, plus a thumping, bombastic bass that should give any home theater a through and rough workout. Also included on this disc is a French Dolby 2.0 soundtrack along with English and French subtitles. This monster disc includes a few extra features for Godzilla 2000 fans, including a very enlightening audio commentary by Michael Schlesinger, film editor Michael Mahoney, and sound editor Darren Paskal, discussing the American version of this film (compared to the original Japanese version). Also included on this disc is a short two-minute behind-the-scenes look at the film, a few talent biographies, and theatrical trailers for the Godzilla remake and Anaconda.

Synopsis

Godzilla 2000
Following Roland Emmerich's controversial Americanization of the Japanese monster icon in Godzilla (1998), the Beast from the East comes roaring back in this sci-fi adventure tale. Yuji Shinoda (Naomi Nishida), a scientist devoted to researching Godzilla, is setting up equipment on a fog-shrouded peninsula with her daughter Io (Mayu Suzuki) and journalist Yuki Ichinose (Takehiro Murata) when everyone's favorite 180-foot-tall lizard appears from the sea and begins laying siege to a nuclear power plant. The military swings into action, but the monster's fiery breath soon uncovers an alien spacecraft; beings from outer space have come to take over the earth, and now Godzilla is our last line of defense against them. Hugely successful in Japan, Gojira Mireniamu (aka Godzilla 2000) was the first Japanese Godzilla movie since Godzilla 1985 to receive a US theatrical release. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
