Aliens intend to take over the planet and, just in case Godzilla tries to interfere, have built a mechanical version of him to put an end to his interference. The Earth humans summon the legendary King Seesar to assist Godzilla in the battle.Written by

The older US television and video version (and no longer used) released by Cinema Shares had the "Godzilla vs the Cosmic Monster" title (red background with title written in white letters in an almost circular pattern). Also, in the beginning of the film when they show Anguirus in Siberia, the Cinema Shares version is slightly bright, enabling you to see Anguirus and to see the snow on the mountain. The Japanese version is the same. In addition, the Cinema Shares version cuts the ending out and ends a few seconds after the huge explosion and when King Seesar re-seals himself back in the mountain. The end title shows a statue of King Seesar on the left and shows a red background with the words "The End" on the right. Later video re-releases use the newer "Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla" title in the US and has the Siberia scene exceptionally dark, making it hard to see Anguirus. But, this newer video version restores the full ending of the film, where you see the characters putting the King Seesar statue back in place (without this full ending, it would appear the heroes also die in the explosion).

Godzilla's back in his 14th adventure, Godzilla Vs. Mechagodzilla!!!! This is a great G-Flick full of action, adventure, and aliens(what else is new?)!! Jun Fukuda directed this and honestly, it is a good job. The music is upbeat and fits with the tone. The monsters look great(except for King Seesar) and have neat moves. The human substory is OK for a Godzilla movie, yet at the climax, the human substory really shines. If you are a fairweather Godzilla fan, you might want to expect more, but if you're a big Godzilla fan, you will love this movie. The SPFX are good, the acting is good, the music is great and the movie shines in every other area. It's a worthwhile viewing experience. Advertisement: Godzilla! Anguirus! And more! All in Godzilla's brand new adventure! GODZILLA VS. MECHAGODZILLA!!!!!!!!!!! That's right, Godzilla now has a mechanical clone! See! Aliens invade Earth! See!
