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.

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.

If you can slog through the endless exposition leading up to it, the climactic wrestling match over the latest scale model of Tokyo provides the summer's best guilty pleasure.

Despite the millennial title, you're not going to see anything new here.

It is sci-fi kitsch fun.

Contains more laugh-out-loud moments than The Replacements and Nutty Professor II: The Klumps combined.

Though it lacks the antic verve of its mid-'60s predecessors, Godzilla 2000 offers some interesting twists for connoisseurs.

Better-suited to a Saturday matinee.

A lovably amusing foray into vapid plotting, bad dubbing and men in rubber suits trashing miniature sets.

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

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

Godzilla 2000 is a ton of fun, and then some.

A couple of laughs at the expense of the intentionally horrible dubbing ... and amateurish acting.

Only a diehard fan of the long-running Japanese Godzilla series could love Godzilla 2000.

Godzilla 2000 proves that you really can go home again -- and you can also keep on trashing it.

Godzilla 2000 ... is dubbed into English in a manner that's occasionally too jokey for its own good.

Take the kids. Watch Godzilla crush Japanese cars, smack Cobra helicopters and burn the mutant alien. It's a tradition and one worth passing on to another generation.
