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>

Trivia

This became one of the most controversial Godzilla movies. Shortly after the film's release in Japan, a cable news channel in America ran a lengthy story about the film's alleged anti-American sentiments. Scenes of US soldiers being killed by the Godzillasaurus were shown on the network, and the plot featuring evil Westerners from the future was debated. Director Kazuki Ohmori, however, defended his artistic decision on camera, arguing that the film was not in fact meant to be anti-American. Economic tensions between East and West were high at this time, and the negative publicity was very much a sign of the times. See more »

Quotes

Major Spielberg: Enemy plane, Sir?
U.S. Ship Commander: Impossible. No plane can fly that fast. That looked to me like it was from another planet...
Major Spielberg: I have to agree, Sir. It did look like it was from another planet, but... Shall we report it, Sir?
U.S. Ship Commander: What? That we're being invaded by little green men from outer space? Let's just keep it as our secret. You can tell your son about it when he's born, Major Spielberg.
Major Spielberg: Sir, yes Sir!
[Commander leaves]
Major Spielberg: I will Sir.

Gojira vs. Kingu Gidorâ (1991)
13 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Godzilla and time travel fumble around with each other in an enjoyable but confusing entry. It mostly confuses because the time travel plot doesn't make much sense. Why do the aliens just move Godzilla? Who knows. It's great to see a bit more origin, even if it doesn't all add up. There are some excellent comedic scenes, aided by some hammy acting. The scene with a Mr. Spielberg is a great laugh out loud moment. The war scenes are a little something new, and the anti Americanism has been blown out of proportion. One of the characters even says that the dinosaur was just protecting its island. Ghidorah soon makes an appearance, and there's even more fun to be had with Mecha-Ghidorah. This was a jump back into the cheesiness of earlier films, but after the undeserved failure of the previous installment, that was to be expected.
