The crypto-zoological agency Monarch faces off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.
A giant, reptilian monster surfaces, leaving destruction in its wake as it strides into New York City. To stop it, an earthworm scientist, his reporter ex-girlfriend, and other unlikely heroes team up to save their city.
As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.
The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient superspecies, thought to be mere myths, rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity's very existence hanging in the balance.
One reason why Ghidorah is thought of as Godzilla's greatest enemy is that Ghidorah is one of only two villains -- the other being Mechagodzilla -- who Godzilla has needed help to beat. In all the times they've fought in Toho movies, only twice has Godzilla defeated King Ghidorah in one-on-one matchups. In Destroy All Monsters (1968), it took the combined efforts of several giant monsters to bring down the three-headed dragon. See more »
Apparently wind shear doesn't exist in this film's universe.
Flying directly into a storm will result in a loss of lift and the aircraft which does so crashing. Yet all of the pilots head directly into the storm with Rodan chasing them, knowing this full well. See more »

Writers ruin what could have been a fantastic movie
Ever since the perfection of CGI, Hollywood has come to the conclusion that if the special effects are good, then then movie is good. Thus, my 5 star rating. Half of the movie involved the monster battles and that gets 10 stars. The half of the movie where there is no monster presence gets 0. That averages out to a 5. Perhaps some day Hollywood will re-discover the lost art of screen writing and combine it with CGI to create a truly fantastic movie. But don't look for it to change soon. A lot of people came out of the theater visually dazzled by the special effects knowing that the story was awful but still thought it was a great movie. So they will continue make a lot of money creating these kind of movies and save on time & expense by not having to pay top dollar for a writer.
