    Synopsis


    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

      Another fun Godzilla movie

      This is one of the later Godzilla movies, better made than some of the earlier Godzilla movies. In this one, a weapon is created with the intention of sending Godzilla into another dimension. A rare insect is exposed to interdimension energy and is mutated into a monster. Japan is caught in the middle in a battle between Megaguirus, the mutated insect, and Godzilla. The monster suits are well designed and the action features some top quality CGI visual effects. The miniature set looks realistic and this makes for one of the most exciting giant monster duels I've seen on the big screen. The consept of an insect mutated into a monster is actually pretty well thought out and makes sense in the context of the film. The plot is well written and the movie is well directed. This ranks as one of Godzilla's better big screen outings. As with any movie, makes sure you watch it in it's original language rather than the dub. The dub cast is not quite as good as the original cast and the fact that the voice and lip movements are out of synch in the dub version can be jarring at times. Don't worry about subtitles, reading them is much easier than you might think. Recommended for any fan of sci-fi, Japanese movies or Godzilla.

      First off, there really are no special features, unless you count 5 trailers. Now when it comes to dubbing any Godzilla movie into English, the lip syncing with the audio will obviously be off. That's to be expected with different languages. Also, this is the first movie where I've seen a black hole be used as a weapon. Although, when the black hole weapon is first tested, it gives rise to the Meganulon from the Carboniferous period. Last thing i'll mention is that this one is a direct sequel to the 1954 movie, thereby ignoring all others in between.

      It's Godzilla in all his gleaming glory. It's a pretty good movie, though I wish it came in Blu-Ray version.
