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
Despite the film's English title, "Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II," the film is not a sequel to Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974). The film was retitled due to the fact that in the Western world, different films in a series rarely have the same title unless they're remakes. A third film with the same title in Japanese, Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla (2002) ("Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla"), was also retitled for the Western market (as "Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla".)

This is one of the best Heisei offerings from Toho. Whereas Gojira VS Mosura (1992) was mainly for the girls, this one's really for the boys. It's got mechas, kaiju and even a touch of gore. What's more, BabyGodzilla is a definite improvement of Minya. It's more dinosaurian than its 60's counterpart. I think this MechaGodzilla is much better than its 70's self. The Plasma Grenade weapon is much more devestating than those rotating missile fingers the original MechaG had. A nice return for Rodan, too. A lovely "guest" appearance from Mecha King Ghidora. And what of Gojira himself? I looove that new breath weapon of his courtesy of Rodan. I demand that Aoki guy be killed. And Miki Saegusa stands up for Gojira's rights, but who pushes the button to destroy Gojira's second brain in his spine? Hmm, let's see...
