This was Hiroshi Koizumi's final appearance in the classic Godzilla film series (the Showa Series). He would return in Godzilla 1985 (1984), the first film in the VS Series (AKA: Heisei Series). See more »

When a black mountain appears above the clouds, a monster will arrive and try to destroy the world. The ancient prophecy is coming true.
I would never have guessed... that the monster could be Godzilla!

This film was pretty much the beginning of the end of the Showa era. This film was very fast paced and had a lot of good fight sequences between the two monsters. However, the story left a little bit to be desired. In fact, the non monster scenes almost cause this movie to grind to a halt. At least the battle at the end featuring the new monster King Seesar helps to keep the film from going totally down the tubes. Also, this film isn't really for the faint of heart due to the fact that it is probably the bloodiest of all the Godzilla films. This film may not have been among the best in the series, but it still was pretty decent.
