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 only Japanese Godzilla movie that saw a release in Hungary. It had a short run in cinemas in 1989, but was met with unfavorable reception, with critics calling it an "utterly worthless film" and "one of the worst science fiction movies in history". It was so badly received that no other Japanese Godzilla film was released thereafter, neither theatrically, nor on home video or television. As a result, most people believed Roland Emmerich's American Godzilla (1998) to be the first and only "true" Godzilla film. See more »
When the alien henchmen revert back to their ape-like forms, the entire screen freezes while the transformation lasts, including other people in the shot. There is an obvious crossfade effect, during which the "frozen" people slightly change position. See more »
Godzilla is introduced to heavy metal by way of cyborg doppelganger
In this little doozy, Godzilla goes up against Mechagodzilla, a monster with a long name and made of space titanium. Godzilla teams up with King Seesar, a furry guy who likes quiet evenings at home until he is woken up by singing. MechaG is the evil aliens' world conquering device. By the way, the aliens in their true form look like Japanese actors with green ape masks on. Big budget fun. King Seesar is called upon to protect his home Okinawa and make sure Mr.Miyagi's parents survive so he can grow up to teach Daniel-San. All I can say is if this is Okinawa's best defense, that island is screwed. Godzilla eventually beats MechaG by drawing him to his body magnetically (along with some electrical towers) and ripping his head off. Anguirus is in it too, but who cares? Note: this is one of the films where Godzilla squirts blood likes he's in a Peckinpah flick.
