Masterful blend of goofiness, spectacle, giant moths, and heartfelt emotion, 14 September 2003
Author: curtis martin from Bothell, Washington, Land of Rain

If you can imagine one of those goofy old Mothra flicks with great soundtrack music, good acting, very nice cinematography, and special effects at least as good as those in "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger," then you can imagine "The Rebirth of Mothra." Though obviously aimed at kids, and with all the genre's intrinsic ridiculousness firmly intact, the movie is a resounding success on it's own terms mainly because the filmmakers of this entry in the series wisely chose to downplay the Sci-fi elements in favor of a magical fairy tale approach (there's a wicked witch and even a mini-mothra named "Fairy"). I know many may find this hard to swallow, but Rebirth of Mothra is a lot of fun for kids and kids-at-heart alike. And, no, I'm not kidding.
