Storyline

Three kids join Mothra's priestesses on a journey to find the Lost Treasure of Nilai Kinai, an ancient lost "under-the-sea" civilization in hopes of preserving the Earth's declining environment. Pollution has unyielded the evil monster Dagahra, a monster seemingly too powerful for Mothra to vanquish. As a result, the environment's fate lies in the hands of the Lost Treasure.

Mothra goes underwater!
23 April 1999 | by (Portland, Maine) – See all my reviews

Although some kaiju fans consider a majority of this film a joke, I do not.

What you have here is a great little film, made on a small budget, that not only entertains but also keeps the the series going in the same direction as the first of the trilogy, Mothra (1996).

In this film, a creature by the name of Go-Go is discovered by some fishermen. The creature flees and is discovered by some local kids who together with Moll and Lora (Mothra's fairies) head off the coastline to discover a "secret treasure." They are pursued by the fishermen, now controled by Belvera (the evil sister fairie). When they arrive at a point in the ocean, Go-Go raises a temple from under the water and they go inside to investigate.

They discover a horrible monster is being unleased. Dagahra has been awakened by the pollution of man and is wreaking havoc on the island and the fairies have to summon Mothra to battle it.

The fight sequences in this movie are well done, especially for the first major battle between MothraLeo and Dagahra. Some kaiju fans may have a problem with AquaMothra but all in all, this is a fun movie and should be enjoyed by all!
