In response to Japan's request for a countermeasure against Godzilla, UN engineers construct Mechagodzilla, a giant robotic version of Godzilla. Nonetheless, Godzilla proves himself a force to be reckoned with against this monstrosity and battle ensues. Written by
Despite the film's English title, "Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II," the film is not a sequel to Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974) a.k.a. "Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla." The film was retitled due to the fact that in the Western world, different films in a series rarely have the same title unless they're remakes. A third film with the same title in Japanese, Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla (2002) ("Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla"), was also retitled for the Western market (as "Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla".)

When Mechagodzilla fires its chest beam at Rodan, he lands on his back, but when Baby Godzilla calls out to him when Mechagodzilla is killing Godzilla, he is on his belly. See more »
Godzilla has a really busy time again: fighting the winged Radon, trashing a huge tin can named Mechagodzilla, and looking for his baby. The little monster is as cute as his predecessor in `Gojira No Mosuko', but better designed, with evil glowing red eyes. One novelty in the 90s Godzilla movies is the creation of a special group of experts called `G Force' who try not to let Godzilla wreck Japan as badly again as he did in the 60s. With little success, though - to sum it up, not one of the best movies of the series, but a good deal of chaos and destruction again. Voted 6/10.
