Years later, Joe's son, Ford, a US Navy ordnance disposal officer, must go to Japan to help his estranged father who obsessively searches for the truth of the incident. In doing so, father and son discover the disaster's secret cause on the wreck's very grounds. This enables them to witness the reawakening of a terrible threat to all of Humanity, which is made all the worse with a second secret revival elsewhere. Against this cataclysm, the only hope for the world may be Godzilla, but the challenge for the King of the Monsters will be great even as Humanity struggles to understand the destructive ally they have.

Boy looking at the other IMDb reviews, this seems to have really annoyed an awful lot of people.
Two comments: * I have argued here in the IMDb that the 1998 version with Broderick was under-rated. Vindication at last. As you slog through this version, you cannot help but recall how the 1998 film actually held interest from scene to scene, and seemed to want to go somewhere.
* a cautionary tale on the importance of -- who knew? -- a script. The really strange thing is that the production standards, the effects, the cinematography, are all pretty solid. All dressed up and nowhere to go. The exec who greenlighted this script clearly did not have English as a first language. It was beyond terrible, it was strange and odd and seemed to be missing pages.
