In response to Japan's request for a countermeasure against Godzilla, UN engineers construct Mechagodzilla, a giant robotic version of Godzilla. Nonetheless, Godzilla proves himself a force to be reckoned with against this monstrosity and battle ensues.Written by
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 »
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 »
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.
