A princess from a small Himalayan country becomes possessed by the spirit of a Venusian (a Martian in the American version) and escapes a plane just as it explodes. As this happens a meteorite falls from the sky containing Ghidorah, the monster responsible for her planet's destruction. At the same time, Godzilla and Rodan emerge from hibernation and not only attack Japan, but each other as well. Mothra, along with its twin priestesses, attempt to convince Godzilla and Rodan to stop their fighting each other and to team up to fight the new monster. At the same time, the princess is being hunted by a group of assassins who want to kill her so that her enemies can take over her homeland.Written by

Was released in the United States on a double feature with Elvis Presly's Harum Scarum. See more »
When Rodan flies out of Mt. Aso, you hear Godzilla's roar instead of Rodan's, and also a small clip of the sound King Ghidorah makes. Later, when he confronts Godzilla, he screeches in Godzilla's voice again. See more »
[the police are puzzled how the princess could've survived an exploding airplane, but an expert has an opinion]
Yes, it is possible for someone to be saved from an exploding aircraft. If we understand the curvature of space, we know that the continuum surrounding any spherical body such as our world is composed of different dimensions. The force of the explosion created a gap between these dimensions, and fortunately for her, she fell into it.

In the original Japanese version, you don't here the monsters cries during the gun battle between Shindo and Malmess. When the film was released in America, the monsters are heard in the background during the gunfight. See more »
I remember back in the 70's this was the first movie I ever saw of
Godzilla!, and boy did I get excited. I was enthralled from beginning to end, and I can tell you this much: I still enjoy it! Ghidrah, Mothra, Rodan all have a place in my heart and mind, and always will. They helped me escape to new dimensions and thoughts. Well besides all that, it's just incredible fun to watch this movie. It has plot mixed in with the monsters appearing and holds at least this viewer. Good for the kiddies and nostalgia buffs.
10 out of 10. Get the video, so you can watch it over and over again. Better than the crap Hollywood is dishing out nowadays.
