A scientist combines the cells of a rose with those of Godzilla to create a biological creature more horrifying than any seen before. The two do battle after a destructive tour of Japan by Godzilla. A newly released version includes many new fight scenes that were cut out of the theatrical version.Written by

A stop-motion animation sequence with Godzilla fighting Biollante's vines was filmed, but wasn't used in the finished movie because it didn't match with the other special effects footage. See more »
In order for the bacteria to take effect on Godzilla, he has to be warmed up because he is cold-blooded. However being cold-blooded doesn't actually mean that an animal is cold. Just by his sheer size and mass, Godzilla's body would be radiating an immense amount of heat. See more »
I just wonder. Did Godzilla come all this way to see Biollante because it knew they were made from the same cells?
Yes, it's possible. After all, they're from the same family.
More than just the same family. They are both made from the same cells. They're identical, the same thing. Not brother and sister; they're both the same creature.

Another great entry into the rebooted franchise. It picks up where the last Godzilla films left of. However, it soon turns into an espionage thriller, Americans and, most dangerously of all, middle eastern folk, try and steal a Godzilla fragment to experiment with. It leads to the creation of a giant plant. Nothing too dangerous you might think, but as it mutates, the design is really quite breathtaking. This film once again takes it up a notch. It feels so genuine in its portrayal of the events, and even manages to convince the audience that this is all very real. As always, the score is truly dominant. It flows throughout the film bringing both dread and excitement. I loved how they gradually introduce the more "out there" ideas. This time, it's telekinesis with flowers. Like the classics, it is a story of man and nature, and how fooling around could lead to absolute destruction by giant monsters. There were also a number of humane touches and some maturity lacking from earlier attempts. When asked if he will go to America a young man says that he wont, as every country has bad things about it. For once, the foreign devils aren't to blame. Just humanity as a whole.
