Reporter Yuki (Naomi Nishida) hooks up with Professor Shinoda (Takehiro Murata) and his daughter Io (Mayu Suzuki) of the Godzilla Prediction Network - a group dedicated to study Godzilla and use the results for the good of mankind - to eventually get close enough to Godzilla and get a few sensational photographs ... but immediately she hates it, thinking her partners to be nothing but loonies. It's only when she sees Shinoda crash with Katagiri (Hiroshi Abe), boss of the Crisis Control Intelligence, an organisation that wants to destroy Godzilla to save Japan from its destructive force that she begins to respect Shinoda - andwhen Shinoda detects Regeneration G1, the gene that makes Godzilla regenerate, in a Godzilla cell, Shinoda has really earned Yuki's respect.

By that time though, Japan is faced with another threat, an UFO that is virtually indestrubcable, that sucks information out of any computer there is, that destroys parts of Japan rather at will, and that is hell-bent on sucking Regeneration G1out of Godzilla to become an indestructable monster itself ... really.

After the usual to and fro, Godzilla and the UFO come face to face, battle each other - and the UFO wins. Then the UFO scans Godzilla for genetic information and builds its own monster according to the Godzilla-blueprint.

Re-enter Godzilla for round two, which is the much more interesting match as this time Godzilla doesn't fight a boring old UFO but a monster that is continually shifting shape to adapt to his fighting style. In the finale, the monster even tries to devour Godzilla as a whole, but Godzilla blows up his opponent from the inside - and once again Japan is saved.

With Godzilla of all beings having saved Japan, Katagiri sees the error of his ways, and lets himself being killed by the monster ...

 

The first Japanese Godzilla-movie after the Roland Emmerich directed Hollywood embarrassment from 1998 is unfortunately not the triumphant return to old form one has hoped for - it features a convoluted and silly story full of techno babble and is full of not all that convincing CGI-effects - but the finale with two monsters duking it out and destroying a city in the process compensates for some of the film's shortcomings and makes it worthwhile after all - at least for fans of monsters destroying cities (and there are quite a few). Still, don't get your hopes up too high
