To protect Japan from yet another monster attack, this time from a new and malevolent member of the Godzilla (Gojira) species, the Japanese government creates a human-piloted cyborg, codenamed Kiriyu, using the skeleton of the original Godzilla (Gojira) that attacked Japan in 1954. Written by

Famed Japanese baseball player Hideki Matsui, a member of the New York Yankees from 2003 to 2010 and a member of the Los Angeles Angels since 2010, appears as himself. He hits a massive home run as Kiryu is flown toward Godzilla for the first time and helps a group of children get to a safe place during the sequence when Shinagawa's population is evacuated to make room for the fighting monsters. Matsui's nickname in Japan is Gojira (Godzilla). See more »

Godzila X Mechagodzilla is COOL! I didn't like Godzilla X Megaguirus a lot, but I believe Masaaki Tezuka has improved his G-Flicks in every way. The story is much better and the characters have more depth. mechagodzilla and Godzilla look a lot cooler than before. There's a lot more of a rivalry between the monsters than in GXM. Sometimes the CGI effects look absolutely fake but they have their moments(Godzilla opening his eye and such). Michiru Oshima's score is great, and she uses more themes than in GXM. I have seen the movie in Japanese and English and both jobs are well done. This actually makes me look forward to Masaaki Tezuka's other Godzilla movie to come to America, Godzilla X Mothra X Mechagodzilla: Tokyo S.O.S.
