Storyline

A group of scientists are on tropical Solgel Island in the Pacific to conduct weather control experiments. Just before they begin, they find giant preying mantises measuring 25 feet tall called Kamakaras. They decide to go ahead with the experiments, but a malfunction in one of the devices and as a result a radioactive storm that pushes the temperature up to two hundred degrees. The storm also causes the mantises to grow even bigger to 100 feet tall. The mantises then make their way to a huge mound where they uncover a giant egg which contains a young Godzilla, later named Minilla. Eventually, Godzilla shows up and saves his offspring. The rest of the movie features Godzilla taking care of and teaching his young son the skills that will eventually help him to become the new "King of Monsters" as well as fighting the Kamakaras and a giant spider named Kumoga.

Quotes

Goro Maki: [Godzilla and Minya are close by] Riko, I think they spotted us.
Riko Matsumiya: No, it appears to be teaching its son.
Goro Maki: Teaching its son?
[Riko nods]
Goro Maki: It's teaching its son all right. And, he's teaching its son just like people teaching its children, just like a papa.
Riko Matsumiya: Well, it is a papa, isn't it?
Goro Maki: Well sure, but I wouldn't want one like that.
Riko Matsumiya: Nor I, everything's relative I guess.
Goro Maki: You're right.

A very good movie
30 May 2014 | by (barry's bay) – See all my reviews

The beast Godzilla movie is the remake from 1998. Maybe you don't think so that's OK. But if your really mad about it come down you pooh pooh heads. This is a very good movie. It's the 8th Godzilla movie. It's not as good as the 1st Godzilla movie Godzilla King of the monsters. The 16th Godzilla movie The return of Godzilla. Part 23 to the Japan Godzilla sires Godzilla vs M.e.g.a.g.u.i.r.u.s is also better. But this is still a very good movie . See it. Some people are stuck on an island with giant monsters. Very scary. Great monster movie. See it see it see it. Great movie great movie great movie. It is very entertaining. Part 25 to the Japan series is Godzilla M.o.t.h.r.a and King G.h.i.d.o.r.a.h giant monsters on an all out attack. That one is better. The remake form 2014 is also better. But still a very good movie see it.
