This film's origin went back to 1990 with the concept Mothra Vs. Bagan. The film would include battles all across Asia in places like Shanghai and Bangkok. However, when Gojira tai Biorante (1989) failed, Toho blamed the fact that an unfamiliar monster was used and this project was put on hold to give Godzilla another shot with Gojira tai Kingu Gidora (1991).

Strings holding up Mothra and Battra are visible in some scenes. The bright studio lights make them easy to spot against the dark background. See more »

A classic. Edge of the seat suspense. Exceptional fight scenes. Outstanding soundtrack and voice synchronization (ala the best of Jackie Chan films). Parade float quality finish on Mothra. The complex, labyrinth-like plot wound its way through the character development. Incredible insight into the Japanese culture and into the genre itself. Plan to join in the Macarena-like Cosmos dance crazy soon to hit your local nightclub.
