Action woman kicks ass big time, but this is still Gojira's movie, 6 December 2001
Author: whatdoes1know from japan

An action heroine in this one surprisingly gets as much screen time as the big G, and her character surprisingly has as much depth as the G's wrinkles when he smiles. Of course, he never smiles. But the plot of the humans has received more attention than the big G's carnage for this one. It's basically the plot of the heroine of Gamera 3, but with more development. And, unlike the Gamera teenager, the heroine of Gojira vs Megagirasu does not wait for a monster egg to fall on her laps to go after the big G. She kicks ass big time! Don't worry Gojira fans, the movie's title is not Tom Boy kicks Gojira's ass, so you know who's the boss. And this one's got a trick up its sleeve too! I'm sure you'll all fall for it. This movie has nothing to do with Gojira 2000, if you couldn't stand that little brat and the journalist, or worse, the guy who's last wishes were GOJIRAAAAAAA. I won't say action girl in here does better than Jean Reno in the infamous Godzilla, but the monster she's fighting is more lovingly menacing. No raptor look-alikes running around here. Just the big G and her. The music also changed. Each movie in the new Gojira trilogy must have been made for different audiences. This one is for the wide movie-going female audience between the kids for whom they made Gojira 2000, and the otakus and die-hard fans for whom they've made Daikaiju Soukougeki.
