Storyline

A meteorite yields the three-headed dragon King Ghidorah on Earth, after Mothra's priestesses predicted that the King of Terror would return. The monster was said to be responsible for the death of the dinosaurs, and now, he is out to get all of Earth's children. While Mothra's powers are no match for the dragon, he is sent to the past, in the time of the dinosaurs, to battle a younger, and apparently less powerful, King Ghidorah. Written by Oliver Chu

Not bad...not bad at all...
2 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

I been a daikaiju fan all my life. So, it was interesting for me the Heisei Mothra trilogy. I think when Godzilla was retired in 95, Mothra took over as main monster. I have to admit the Heisei trilogy delievers, especially Mothra 3, which finally aired in the US, courtesy of SciFi Channel. In my opinion, Ghidorah didn't look so bad...a$$. You had this feel Ghidorah was a true Asian Dragon in this movie, he was my favorite overall...and Mothra wasn't bad herself. Makes me wonder if other Toho monsters will be given a shot at the own movie...*Rodan! Rodan! Rodan!*
