A reporter investigates the disappearance of a ship. He finds the ship and discovers that all the hands have been killed by a giant sea louse except for one. The lone survivor then tells the reporter that the ship was attacked by Godzilla (Gojira). Fearing a panic, the Japanese government then takes the survivor into custody to keep him from revealing that Godzilla has returned. However, a Soviet nuclear submarine is destroyed and the situation puts them and the United States on the brink of nuclear war, until the Japanese decide to come clean and admit that it was Godzilla. Soon the Japan and the rest of the world are on red alert as they wait for Godzilla to begin his rampage anew. Written by

This was not only the last Godzilla film produced during the Showa Era in Japan (the reign of Emperor Hirohito (1921-1989), but also the first film in a new series (later called the "Versus Series" in Japan), a direct sequel to the original film, Gojira (1954). The next film, Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989), was the first Godzilla film to be filmed in the Heisei Era (the reign of Emperor Akihito; 1989-present). However, since this movie is a direct prequel to Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989), this film is still considered to be part of the "Heisei" era. See more »
The flock of birds that lure Godzilla away from the power plant are clearly hand-drawn animations, as their framerate is half of that of the live-action footage. See more »
I seen both the International and Asian versions of this.If you do NOT want Ramond Burr's preaching nor Dr. Pepper lovin' hicks, stick to the original Japanese version.I personally like the original version myself.
