Storyline

Time travellers from the 23rd century return to 1992 to warn Japan that Godzilla will cause a catastrophic nuclear incident in the 21st century and suggest a way to rid the world of him forever. They intend to go back to 1944, to Ragos Island, where a dinosaur was exposed to radiation from the Bikini H-Bomb test and became Godzilla. Upon completion of this task, King Ghidrah appears in 1992 and the visitors' true plan is discovered. They wish to destroy Japan so it will not become the dominant economic force. Luckily for the Japanese, Godzilla was still created and will now fight Ghidrah. Written by Todd A. Bobenrieth <TAB146@PSUVM.EDU>

The Terminator, Godzilla style.
14 February 1999 | by (Bridgewater, MA, USA) – See all my reviews

People from the distant future arrive in a time machine to warn Japan of the present that Godzilla will soon destroy Japan, and they take three people from the present, a writer, a scientist, and a psychic, to go back and time to stop Godzilla from being spawned by the H-bomb. They go back to 1944, and see the Godzillasaurus (what Godzilla was before he was mutated) killing off US troops on an island. Then they teleport the Godzillasaurus away from the island where the bomb was tested and into the Baring Sea. However, it turns be a trick and the Futarians let loose three Dorats (dragon-like things) to be mutated by the bomb. So the Dorats become the classic King Ghidorah (another one of my favorite monsters) who destroys Japan. However, a nuclear accident in the Baring Sea causes Godzilla be reborn. Then Godzilla is p****d and kills King Ghidorah by blowing off his central head and destroys the futerians spaceship. Then Godzilla attacks Japan. But a good futerain, Emi Kano has some tricks up her sleeve. And she turns King Ghidorah into Mecha King Ghidorah (picture what King Ghidorah would look like assimilated by the Borg from Star Trek) and pits it against Godzilla. Marvelous high tech special effects and a wonderful score by Ifukube who returned after an abscence of almost 20 years. A must see for any Godzilla fan.
