Storyline

Aliens from a dying galaxy plan to destroy our cities and build their new home on Earth. Their weapon is Mechagodzilla, a 400-foot-tall robot armed with powerful lasers and guided missiles. Only Godzilla is mighty enough to stop the colossal machine, but when Professor Mafune joins the aliens, not even Godzilla will be able to defeat them. Mafune controls Titanosaurus, a gigantic amphibious dinosaur, through a biochemical connection with his cyborg daughter, Katsura. Godzilla is no match for Titanosaurus and Mechagodzilla together, but Interpol agents have discovered Titanosaurus' weakness, which may give Godzilla the fighting chance he needs to save the world!

Trivia

Katsumi Nimiamoto wore the Titanosaurus suit backwards for certain shots, to make its movements look more unnatural. See more »

Goofs

When Titanosaurus folds back his tailfin after destroying the city, the shot is in reverse, so the sparks flying in the background are flying backwards. See more »

Quotes

Katsura Mafune: Father, a man from Interpol came.
Dr. Shinji Mafune: What's that?
Tsuda: Interpol?
Katsura Mafune: They asked to see you. They wanted to know about dinosaurs.
Dr. Shinji Mafune: Heh! Heh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh! Eh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh! Heh! They've arrived fifteen years too late to ask me about that. Heh! Heh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh. I told them then I'd make them sorry. Now my theory has proved to be correct, I'll take revenge on them all, on those fools who thought I was crazy and forced me to resign! Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Mekagojira no gyakushu (1975)
13 December 2011 | by SnakesOnAnAfricanPlainSee all my reviews

Just as good as its predecessor, if not better. Last time we saw Godzilla teaming up to take down one monster. This time, he has to take down two, by himself. This is a great end to the original series, as it contains all the great elements. Awesome fights, which take us back to more inhabited areas. The country side had become a cheap alternative, but you can't beat city destruction. There is also a lot of heart, as we see a ridiculed scientist and his daughter struggle with their feelings. This film actually contains some human sacrifice. Making us and Godzilla equal again. Very impressed with something that could have been all a little much.
