Finally, Godzilla was back on the big screen in America, in full CG, though as we know, the results are mixed at best...
I liked that movie, it was fun. I know I'm in the vast minority, but I don't care. And I stopped liking the Japanese Godzilla movies when I was 10.
I don't think Godzilla '98 is the worst thing ever either. However, it doesn't really do anything new with the genre, the CG(while still pretty good) doesn't hold the same impact as it once did because there's so much CG these days, the baby Godzilla's may have been going a little too far, and yeah, Godzilla being taken down by normal missiles is a tad weak.
Had Godzilla fought another monster and been the basic Anti-hero the character is known for, I'm sure Godzilla '98 would have turned out better. Sadly, from my understanding, it was TOHO who wouldn't allow them to use an oringal creation, the shape changing "Griffon", in the film, and demanded that if he was to fight a monster it would be an established one, like Mothra or King Ghidorah. It would have cost more, so they went without.
