We know we're in for a good time right from the start when plucky photographer Yuki says, "I've really got to get some great pictures here," while moving her lips only twice.

this is old-school Godzilla, meaning unconvincing special effects, a ridiculous plotline involving a rival monster, and lots of Japanese actors with badly overdubbed dialogue

Low production values, high camp and a guy in a giant rubber reptile suit rampaging through a detailed miniature of Tokyo, knocking down buildings, kicking cars and breathing fire! Yeah, that's the stuff!

Can a movie packed with cheesy acting, cheesy dialogue, cheesy effects and a cheesy plot actually = a good movie? Yup!

Godzilla 2000 is everything hard-core fans want it to be. So corny. So campy. So MST3K-ready. And, God bless it, so badly dubbed in English, it soars.

Though campily dubbed by American actors, the film is entertaining in a sweet, naive way.

Once again, Godzilla delivers, cheese and all, in a stylistic B-movie with teeth.

Godzilla 2000 is yet another traditional Japanese production, weakly plotted, woodenly acted and indifferently dubbed. Yet, for all of that, there is something pleasant and familiar about this old-fashioned home-cooking approach.

This film may just be about as much brainless fun as you're likely to have at the movies this dreary summer.

Godzilla 2000 is the one movie this summer that every parent of a child under 30 must take their kid to go see as a living example of what the joy of movies is all about.

Fans won't want to miss this addition to the canon, if only for the fabulous shot of Godzilla swimming underwater like a prehistoric seal.

Sort of refreshing and fun to watch after a season crammed with envelope-pushing computer-generated imagery.
