A great 70's Godzilla movie.
9 April 2004 | by (Norfolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Godzilla's back in his 14th adventure, Godzilla Vs. Mechagodzilla!!!! This is a great G-Flick full of action, adventure, and aliens(what else is new?)!! Jun Fukuda directed this and honestly, it is a good job. The music is upbeat and fits with the tone. The monsters look great(except for King Seesar) and have neat moves. The human substory is OK for a Godzilla movie, yet at the climax, the human substory really shines. If you are a fairweather Godzilla fan, you might want to expect more, but if you're a big Godzilla fan, you will love this movie. The SPFX are good, the acting is good, the music is great and the movie shines in every other area. It's a worthwhile viewing experience. Advertisement: Godzilla! Anguirus! And more! All in Godzilla's brand new adventure! GODZILLA VS. MECHAGODZILLA!!!!!!!!!!! That's right, Godzilla now has a mechanical clone! See! Aliens invade Earth! See! King Seesar awaken to battle the mechanical monster! See! GODZILLA VS. MECHAGODZILLA!!!!!!!!!
