Storyline

When Mothra went into outer space to stop a meteor from reaching Earth, she accidentally took with cells from Godzilla and remaining cells from Biollante that inhabited our atmosphere. The combined cells went through a black hole and created a new creature, Space Godzilla. Space Godzilla heads to Earth to confront Godzilla, Junior Godzilla, and the new G-Force robot, MOGERA.

Not the best of the new ones
9 September 1998 | by hubzillaSee all my reviews

Objective Synopsis: The UNGCC (United Nation Godzilla Countermeasures Center ) builds Mogera, a giant robot to fight Godzilla. However, the powerful SpaceGodzilla arrives and becomes a greater threat. After the mutated space monster kidnaps Godzilla's son (Little Godzilla), Mogera and Godzilla team up in the final battle.

Logical flaw: Mogera was an improvement over MechaGodzilla from the last film? MechaGodzilla was able to nearly kill Godzilla, whereas Mogera stood in the background firing an array of ineffectual weapons.

Favorite parts: SpaceGodzilla creates a shield to deflect Godzilla's blast (which he didn't use enough); Little Godzilla playing with the "dangerous" land mines.

Parts I could've done without: First, the battle around the styrofoam asteroids. Second, Mogera, who looks simply ridiculous, and I cannot exaggerate this enough. Imagine a penguin and a power drill.

My take: Is "SpaceGodzilla" the best name Toho could come up with? Little Godzilla looks "cute", and I'm sure a lot of fans didn't like him. But I did and thought he was a bright spot in the film. Seeing Godzilla protect his baby reminded me of when Godzilla was a good guy. While Space Godzilla was a very powerful new monster, I felt that he was not cast in the best movie. The final battle seemed uncoordinated, where more attention was put to the humans controlling Mogera than the two title monsters.

Recommendation: If you're a Godzilla aficionado, by all means add this to your collection. However, if you want a first glimpse of Godzilla in his newer 1990's movies, you'll find the special effects and action in the other four (King Ghidora, Mothra, MechaGodzilla, or Destroyer) much more impressive.
