Storyline

A meteorite yields the three-headed dragon King Ghidorah on Earth, after Mothra's priestesses predicted that the King of Terror would return. The monster was said to be responsible for the death of the dinosaurs, and now, he is out to get all of Earth's children. While Mothra's powers are no match for the dragon, he is sent to the past, in the time of the dinosaurs, to battle a younger, and apparently less powerful, King Ghidorah. Written by Oliver Chu

all the M.o.t.h.r.a movies are good
13 June 2014 | by jacobjohntaylor1See all my reviews

This is the 11th M.o.t.h.r.a movie. All the M.o.t.h.r.a movie are good. This one is not as good as the 12th M.o.t.h.r.a movie Godzilla M.o.t.h.r.a and King G.h.i.d.o.r.a. giant monsters on an all attack. It was not as good as the 13th M.o.t.h.r.a movie Godzilla Tokyo S.O.S. It is not as good as the 14th M.o.t.h.r.a movie Godzilla Final wars. Still it is a great movie. See it. It is not as good as the 8th M.o.t.h.r.a movie Godzilla vs Space Godzilla. It is not as good as the 7th M.o.t.h.r.a movie Godzilla and M.o.t.h.r.a and the battle for the earth. It is not as good as the 6th M.o.t.h.r.a movie Godzilla vs G.i.g.an. It is not as good as the 5th M.o.t.h.r.a movie Destroy all monster. But still a very good movie.
