Overview

Everyone's favorite atomic fire-breathing prehistoric monster confronts both natural and man-made adversaries in this Japanese horror vehicle, which gets a solid presentation for its North American DVD release.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
He's b-a-a-c-k! Everybody's favorite rubber-suited saurian returns yet again to stomp Japan into oblivion, but this time the Japanese have something new up their sleeves. Understandably weary of Godzilla's attacks, the nation's scientists have developed the Dimension Tide, a massive space-based device that creates artificial black holes. As an unintended side effect, it creates a self-perpetuating species of insect attracted to Godzilla as an energy source. Eventually, this parasitic creature battles Godzilla for destruction rights to the island nation, presumably his first stop on the road to global devastation. Godzilla vs. Megaguirus follows the timeline created in Godzilla 2000 and ignores events in earlier pictures featuring the character. Director Masaaki Tezuka, following in illustrious footsteps, keeps this latest series entry relatively low-tech, eschewing computer graphics in favor of the traditional rubber-suited monsters and miniature cityscapes. The human characters are relatively unimportant (and unmemorable), but Godzilla is in peak form, and the action is almost nonstop. Whether you're a nostalgia-minded baby boomer or an anime-savvy youngster who loves Japanese monsters, this fast-paced slugfest is made to order for viewing on cold winter weekends.
