"Godzilla: Final Wars (ゴジラ ファイナルウォーズ, Gojira: Fainaru Wōzu?) is the fiftieth anniversary film and the twenty-eighth film in the Godzilla film series. It was directed by Ryuhei Kitamura and produced by Shogo Tomiyama. As a 50th anniversary celebratory film, a large group of actors from previous Godzilla films, both classic and new, made appearances as main characters or cameo appearances. This goes for the kaiju (monsters) as well, as most of the monsters in the film had been missing from the screen for more than 30 years. The MPAA rated the film PG-13 for intense sequences of violence.
Steve Biodrowski of Cinefantastique called the film 'utterly fantastic' and "a rush of explosive excitement.' Jim Agnew of Film Threat gave the film four and a half stars out of five, saying 'the good news for kaiju fans is that Godzilla: Final Wars is a kick-ass giant monster flick.' Sean Axmaker of Static Multimedia said, 'Directed by a true fan of the old school, it's lusciously, knowingly, lovingly cheesy.' Craig Blamer of the Chico News & Review called the film 'a giddy and fast-paced celebration of the big guy.' Popcorn Pictures called Final Wars 'the best Godzilla flick since Godzilla vs. Destoroyah," adding that 'the monsters are all superbly realised, with their city-stomping antics being brought to vivid life like never before.'
In the film, Godzilla confronts the infamous American Godzilla. Many die-hard Godzilla fans expressed outrage at the American Godzilla remake; one of which is the director of Final Wars, Ryuhei Kitamura. Kitamura claimed Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin took the 'God' out of Godzilla, so he named his version of the American Godzilla 'Zilla'. The battle itself lasts a mere 13 seconds, with Godzilla unquestionably victorious ...
Despite the title, this is not the final Godzilla film; Toho has decided to temporarily 'retire' the character for a period of 5-10 years (possibly around 2013 or 2014) in order to renew interest in the series as Godzilla's 59th or 60th anniversary."

I'm excited as all hell to see this. Because of my sunday Church-less movies I now own 14 Godzilla movies. This is one of three I own that I have never seen.
Hell, I might go for a three movie day. Stay tuned.
