Corrected entry: If the lizards are born pregnant and produce offspring within 12 months then the "mother" lizard would have already produced many litters prior to the one in New York and those offspring would have in turn produced their own litters meaning the planet would have already been over-run long before the litter of 200 in New York. That is, unless the "mother" lizard in the movie is only 12 months old herself and the New York litter was her first (which in itself would be ridiculous). Not to mention that the "mother" would also have 199 brothers and sisters all producing offspring.
Corrected entry: Godzilla makes cars bounce several feet off the ground when she walks, but she can hide for an extended period of time in the subway tunnels without disturbing the trains?
Corrected entry: In Madison Square Garden, the French guy smashes Animal's camera, breaking it. When they are again being chased by the baby Godzilla's, Animal runs back to get his tape but leaves the broken camera on the ground. However, when they are being chased by Godzilla in the cab, Animal all of a sudden has another camera to film the chase. Where did he get this camera? When he packs his bag at the house, we see him put only one camera in there. Plus the bag is only big enough to fit one camera anyway.SAZOO1975
Corrected entry: It is shown that Godzilla laid around 200 or so eggs in Madison Square Garden. Yet to carry that many eggs at the size they are shown in the film, Godzilla would have had a visible bulge for all of the eggs. Yet throughout the movie, it is never shown to have any signs of carrying eggs.Dom
Corrected entry: How did Godzilla deposit eggs in Madison Square Garden? It's obviously much too small for her to fit in. Almost all of the eggs are in the central dome, yet when our heroes are running around there is never any indication of a large hole Godzilla could reach through to place them inside.Phoenix
Corrected entry: When Godzilla is killed, he is standing on a suspension bridge entangled in the newly broken wires. If the wires are broken, then the bridge wouldn't be able to support its own weight, let alone the weight of a monster of that size.
Corrected entry: Before Victor tells his new plan to Audrey, he talks to another woman in a crowded room which is full of people talking on the phone and there is also Jamiroquai's featured song coming from somewhere quite loud. Still, Victor and the woman are able to converse quite well without having to change their low voice level, even when they are five or six meters from each other.
Corrected entry: When Nick is getting the worms, he walks from the back of the van. When the helicopter lands the shot over Nick's shoulder shows the van is turned around and face the way he came.
Corrected entry: When Godzilla's foot comes down on the cameraman, it raises up in the very next shot without the other foot behind it moving forward. In the shot after that, with the cameraman's point of view, the other foot is gone.
Corrected entry: In the shot of the wrecked tanker, one of the helicopters flies straight through the side of the tanker.
Corrected entry: When they are at the MP checkpoint trying to get past the gate in the HMMWV (Hummer) you can see an interior panel with a speaker over the driver's side window. Military Hummers don't have interior panels, much less stereos and speakers. They are totally bare necessities inside. They don't even have keyed ignition. There is an on off switch for ignition.EMTurbo
Corrected entry: When the missiles hit Madison Square Garden it is a massive explosion, even accounting for the explosive placed there by the French (who did not think they had enough), but when a total of 12 missiles hit Godzilla, no explosions. As the missiles had penetrated Godzillas skin it would hardly have been able to contain the explosion inside the body.
Corrected entry: At the end of the film when the people are in the taxi driving over the Brooklyn bridge, they jump from the bridge to the road right even though the shot right
before the jump shows the taxi cab a good 3-4 feet below the road level. How did they all of a sudden jump that gap UP onto the road?
Trivia: Director Roland Emmerich was a massive fan of Spielberg's films. Particularly "Jurassic Park." Emmerich decided to model this film more around "Jurassic Park" than the original "Godzilla" series. (In particular the "Baby Godzilla" sequences, which features many callbacks and references to the raptor scenes from "Jurassic Park").
