Godzilla 2000 --1999 6 out of 10
With a new big budget Godzilla in theaters Chiller TV was running a Godzilla Marathon and so I decided to watch a bunch of these older cheesy Godzilla movies.
Godzilla 2000 is the 23rd movie in the franchise and comes on the heels of the big US theatrical release, but returns Godzilla to his rubber suit roots with a new look. The movie is called Godzilla 2000 because Godzilla vs the Flying Space Rock sounded too lame. The flying space rock turns out to be a UFO that wants Godzilla's DNA. Godzilla and the cheesy flying rock battle. The rock gets a hold of Godzilla's DNA and mutants into a Godzilla like monster and they battle some more (why not). Godzilla ends up the winner in this all out battle and then takes off to destroy some more stuff. It was a decent entry in the Godzilla franchise with some fun battles.
Too bad the movie isn't as good as this great trailer.
