Synopsis


Godzilla vs. Destoroyah
Everybody's favorite Tokyo-trashing mutant lizard strikes again. This go-around features not only the big guy, but also his Scrappy-Doo-like companion, Godzilla Junior. On the human side, the film features a teenaged wunderkind whose father not only narrowly survived the green monster's first attack in 1954, but who also studied under famed 300-story mutant expert Dr. Yamane (who was played by Takashi Shimura in the original film). While the nuclear reactor in Godzilla's bowels (don't ask) slides perilously towards meltdown, giving him an unhealthy glow, a nefarious creature from the deep called the Oxygen Destroyer suddenly awakens from a 2.5 billion-year slumber. Soon the two are grappling in Tokyo Bay, taking out much of Yokohama's gleaming new seaside development in the process. Meanwhile, Japanese Self Defense Force unveils the ultra-high-tech Super X III, a massive flying tank-like affair featuring a top-secret freeze-ray designed to rub out city-stomping mutants. Facing competition from Hollywood, Toho Studios announced that this film would be the last installment of the series. That is until Roland Emmerich's awful Godzilla reached Japanese shores. The outrage of this inferior American import proved to be so great that Toho quickly resuscitated the series with Godzilla 2000. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Godzilla vs. Megaguirus
New monsters and new weapons meet their match in an old adversary, Godzilla, in the Japanese science fiction spectacular. As the Japanese government tries to perfect new sources of energy, they discover that their longtime nemesis Godzilla is once again on the rampage, and new technology is needed to keep him at bay. Scientists respond with a gadget called the Dimension Tide, a device which can create a black hole whenever and wherever needed. However, while this device was intended to help ward off Godzilla, it ends up having an unfortunate side effect: A test of the Dimension Tide introduced to the Earth's ecosystem a strain of gigantic insects, who live in the sewers and emerge to wreck havoc. Can Godzilla help defeat the bizarre creatures brought to this planet through an attempt to finally destroy him? ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    I haven't scene many of the 28 Godzilla films since the 1954 Godzilla film that brought the King of All Monsters to life. This 2 pack has what is considered the best Godzilla film since that 1954 film in Destoroyah paired with what some consider to be the weakest of the film series presented by the Toho company. I was very pleased with Destoroyah film, it is well deserved of the hype surrounding this film. I the PQ is very good and has the original Japanese audio track with the english dub as the other audio track. I am just glad that these films have been given the blu ray treatment in the US. A great watch for monster film fans.

    Godzilla king of the monsters face he's greatest adversary yet. In what has long been a favorite of mine in all of the Godzilla films. Big G faces Destroyah a monster with close ties to the Oxygen Destroyer, a weapon that was used to defeat the orginal Godzilla back in 1954. Love the way that the Heisei series capped of the ending to Big G's series, and tied it to original Godzilla community. Surprisingly, and emotional film, for hardcore Godzilla fans, and casual viewers alike.

    Interesting Sequel

    Godzilla vs Destroyah is an interesting entry among the 20+ Godzilla movies made throughout the years, in that it serves as a direct sequel to the very first Godzilla movie, with numerous references to that 1955 film. The second feature included in this Blu-Ray set, Godzilla vs Megaguirus, is one of the weaker of the films in the series, but for Godzilal vs Destroyah alone this set is well worth the price. And the digital remaster is clear and crisp.

    What can be more fun than watching two behemoths wrestling in a major Japanese city with all of its citizens glued to the action... and the Godzilla movies aren't that bad, either. Because, you know, they have the whole Sumo wrestling thing over there... LOL?

    Early 2000's Remakes

    These remakes tend to be more about the characters story lines and less about Godzilla stomping the bejeebus out of Japan and blasting away with its nuclear death-breath. Still, it's part of the Godzilla line-up.

    My son was delighted to get the 2 movies in one package, and on Blu-ray to boot. He especially liked the multiple language options. Would recommend if you're a Godzilla fan; if you're not, not so much.

    Godzilla vs. Destoroyah is one of the most emotional entries in the Godzilla franchise. The second film is also a great look at the Millennium era that succeeded it.
