Trivia

The monster whose dead body washes up on the shore was originally intended by director Masaaki Tezuka to be Anguirus, but producer Shogo Tomiyama convinced him to change it to the less popular Kamoebas to avoid fan outrage. While Anguirus is a very popular monster, appearing in over half a dozen Godzilla films and coming in third place in a G-Fan magazine poll for favorite monster (behind Godzilla and Gamera), Kamoebas is a much more obscure monster, having previously appeared in only one film, Yog: Monster from Space (1970).

Rather cool, but really more of the same.
16 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

I liked this Godzilla movie, but it does share a few to many similarities with the previous Godzilla movie. On the plus side there was a longer fight sequence in this one, but in the end you really end up knowing the outcome of the fight well before it is over. Especially when they add Mothra to the equation, Godzilla was considerably weaker than MechaGodzilla in the last movie so I don't see why they felt he needed another opponent. They really should have added Godzilla some help instead. As it is, Godzilla gets his shots in, but not enough to make the outcome of the fight ever be in doubt. They do add a rather different ending to this one slightly reminiscent of "Godzilla vs. Mothra", with a twist. In the end though this Godzilla is just not nearly as tough as the demon Godzilla of the movie before the MechaGodzilla movies. In fact, this one isn't as tough as the two before that either. To bad it was not more like the demon one though as that one you could really pull against it, this one you feel sorry for. There are some returning stars in this as the pilot of the previous movie has a little more than a cameo, but this time the focus is more on a mechanic of MechaGodzilla. Good movie, but nothing new.
