Godzilla (1998) Following the French atomic bomb tests in the South Pacific, an unknown creature is spotted passing eastward through the Panama Canal. Scientist Niko Tatopolous is called in to investigate the matter, and he quickly arrives at the conclusion that a giant, irradiated lizard has been created by the explosions. Godzilla then makes its way north, landing at Manhattan to begin wreaking havoc in the big city. Even with the combined forces of the U.S. military to fight the monster, will it be enough to save the people of New york?

Movie Quote(s):
  • Lucy: He is scum! As far as he's concerned, you're just a pair of breasts that talk. Animal: Hey, there's an image.
  • Dr. Niko Tatopoulus: He's not some monster trying to evade you. He's just an animal. If you find what he wants, then he'll come to you.
  • Colonel Hicks: Well, don't tell me what it isn't; tell me what the hell it is. Dr. Niko Tatopoulus: Well, what do we know? Uh, it was first sighted off the French Polynesian Pacific. That area has been exposed to dozens of nuclear tests over the past 30 years.
  • Dr. Niko Tatopoulus: This thing is much too big to be some lost dinosaur.
  • Dr. Niko Tatopoulus: The radiation isn't an anomoly, it's the clue.
Movie Trivia:
  • The number of the cab used in the chase at the end of the movie is MN 44. Moon 44 (1990) is the title of an earlier film that was directed by Roland Emmerich and in which Dean Devlin appeared.
  • Director Trademark: [Roland Emmerich] [44] Cab in final chase sequence is cab MN 44.
  • When the soldiers search the log for cab MN 44's frequency we see that the driver of cab MN 43 is named Len Wiseman. Len Wiseman is the property assistant on several Roland Emmerich films and has since gone on to direct feature films of his own. Another driver's name is Scott Collins. Scott Edward Collins was another property assistant on the movie.
  • The meter of the cab after the final chase sequence reads $95.20.
  • The extra killed in his car when Godzilla first arrives in Manhattan was cast as a look-alike for J.D. Lees, editor of G-Fan magazine, because he cast disparaging remarks about the information that leaked out about the film prior to its release.
