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?
Corrected entry: Two soldiers examine the tube at the end of which we then see Godzilla's eye opening. One looks towards the end of the tube, the other examines with a flashlight. He then turns around to go back to the guy at the curve and behind him opens the eye of the beast - but shouldn't the guy in the back who was looking in that direction notice?
Corrected entry: When Godzilla's tail smashes the bridge of the Japanese fishing tanker, all 3 men at the bridge go flying, but in the next shot, we only see 1 of the 3 men actually slam into the wall.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, the F-18's shoot missiles at Godzilla. However they are very close to each other. They weren't in any formation, and having a missile pass so close to a jet should have caused it to explode from the heat and radiance or at least give it turbulence.
Corrected entry: The newscaster states that Godzilla's appearance in New York is the greatest disaster since the World Trade Center bombing. It is unknown what year this is supposed to take place. The WTC was destroyed by terrorist attacks in 2001. The movie was made in 1998 so it seems the writer had a premonition. Also, when the various camera shots show the NYC skyline, you can see the WTC buildings, although in this movie, whatever year it was to take place, they could have been rebuilt.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the old man is fishing off the pier in New York and hooks Godzilla, Godzilla swims back towards him, just under the water. He keeps coming until he starts smashing the pier up from underneath the water. How could he even stay under the water right there? The water can't be very deep because the pier is on pilings.
Corrected entry: The Apache choppers Echo 1, 2 and 4 fire missiles at Godzilla which are called 'Sidewinders'. Sidewinders are air-to-air missiles used on fighter planes; the Apaches' standard heavy missile are air-to surface tank-cracking 'Hellfires'.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Nick is trying to get in the elevator, a young Godzilla sticks its head through the doors and they automatically open (this is a security feature). When Nick kicks it in the head, the doors are automatically closing, even though there is something in the middle of them.
Corrected entry: After Matthew Broderick is kicked off the project team and he has the fight with his ex-girlfriend, his girlfriend's friend's husband heads to his bright red van. He has an opened umbrella in his hand one shot, yet when he steps into the van, he doesn't stop to close it or anything. It literally disappears. He doesn't bring it into the van, and he doesn't drop it either, as the ground to the left of the van is empty as he drives away in the next shot.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Nick gets into the elevator in Madison Square Garden he starts to press the close button, but if you look at the button to the left of his hand the picture shows the close doors sign so he would be pressing the open doors button.
Corrected entry: The strength of Godzilla seems to change every minute from destroying skyscrapers to being unable to destroy a cab. This also applies to the young ones, they can go through walls but later they're held back by locked doors, doors closed with a rope, or elevator doors.
Corrected entry: When Godzilla chases the taxi, the people inside argue which road they should take. When one of the characters proposes one route, Audrey says "But that road always has traffic jams when it's raining" or something similar. But isn't that a perfectly stupid thing to say when there's no one in the city?
Corrected entry: When the attack helicopters go after Godzilla they use heat seeking missiles. Surely they wouldn't even notice a cold blooded lizard? Also when Godzilla chases them why don't they just go up out of reach, rather than running away below the rooftops?
Corrected entry: Godzilla can bite an armored helicopter in half with one chomp, but apparently cannot handle a taxicab that is in his mouth.
