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

When the time travelers arrive in February 1944, a US Navy officer sees their spacecraft, but his commander dismisses the possibility of a UFO; the commander then says, "You can tell your son about when he's born, Spielberg." This is an obvious reference to Steven Spielberg, whose father Arnold served in the war and whose war stories inspired the frequent WWII settings of his films. See more »
The special effects crew failed to rotoscope King Ghidorah's rays when the huge bridge is destroyed. As the shot now plays, the bridge is destroyed by a series of explosions of unknown origin when King Ghidorah simply flies over it. See more »
Awesome movie, but enough with the alien invaders plot.
I found this movie incredibly enjoyable, kind of like the old ones only with new special effects. However, the alien invaders plot that Toho has been recycling since about 1966 is getting old now. Despite that, this was a lot of fun, even though the dialog is bad. Example: an American soldier exclaims in the most over-active voice ever "take that you dinosaur!" after a troop shoots up Godzillasaurus. Likeable newer entry.
