Godzilla (Tsutomo Kitagawa) is back and this time he's trying to smash and destroy all of Japan's nuclear reactors and power plants. A local scientist (Takehiro Murata) who is trying to decode the giant lizard's motives and predict where his next terrifying steps will land, concludes that there must be some greater force controlling Godzilla. When meteor showers and spaceships are thrown into the mix, Godzilla--along with the entire population of Japan--are lost to chaos, crisis, and hysteria.
Factual error: The Apaches in the film are depicted with dual machine guns on each side of the cockpit, mounted directly on the windows. In real life, Apaches cannot mount such cannons, and instead use an M230 Chaingun in a turret underneath the helicopter, which the film Apaches have, but for some reason do not use. (00:49:25)Dom
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").
