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). 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 Rodan flies over the sea, it creates a parallel series of shock waves on the surface of the water. There are flashes under the water that reveal that the shock waves are actually created by explosive charges under the water. See more »
This is the best Godzilla movie since Destroy All Monsters. Mechagodzilla, Baby Godzilla and Rodan all look great; way better than their Showa series counterparts. Godzilla's look is a bit down from the last two movies, but he still looks great. The battle choreography and music is masterfully done, and even the human drama is well done! Kudos to Okawara and Mimura for making a truly great one.
