Trivia

Originally intended to be a remake of King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962). The producers, however, considered Turner Entertainment's asking price for the rights to King Kong too high. They then planned on using Mechani-Kong from King Kong Escapes (1967), but they feared this would violate Turner's copyright. Toho ultimately decided to use Mechagodzilla, although the Mechani-Kong theme was used in the film. See more »

Goofs

When Mechagodzilla fires its chest beam at Rodan, he lands on his back, but when Baby Godzilla calls out to him when Mechagodzilla is killing Godzilla, he is on his belly. See more »

Toho's BEST Godzilla film!
20 September 1998 | by atcSee all my reviews

The 1993 version of Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla is one of the best "kaiju" (giant monster) films ever made and is an action-packed, exciting film in general. Full of great effects as well as drama and fun, this film delivers where other films of its type fall flat. For the price of admission, you get Godzilla, the updated version of Rodan, the new and improved MechaGodzilla and the introduction of Baby Godzilla. Not to be missed not only by Godzilla fans, but any serious science fiction/fantasy lover.
