Humanity's desperate battle to reclaim the Earth from Godzilla continues. The key to defeating the King of the Monsters may be Mechagodzilla, a robotic weapon thought to have been lost nearly 20,000 years ago.
Following their crushing defeat at the hands of Godzilla Earth, Haruo Sakaki and his allies encounter a mysterious aboriginal tribe descended from the humans left behind on Earth 20,000 years ago, and uncover a mechanized city-sized fortress formed from the long-lost anti-Godzilla weapon Mechagodzilla.Written by
This film's Japanese theatrical release date, May 18, comes almost exactly 4 years after the original theatrical release date for Godzilla (2014), which was released in the United States and several other countries on May 16, 2014. It will also be released one day after Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters (2017) is released on DVD and Blu-ray in Japan. See more »
The characters reason that the Hotua tribe must stem from the human race since they closely resemble humans. This logic is undermined by the fact that in this universe, both the Bilusaludo and the Exif aliens also look just like humans apart from a few very minor differences. The Hotua don't look any more human than they do. See more »
A Ponderous But Relevant Take on the Revenge Story
Slower and more considered than its predecessor, the second act of this trilogy weilds its allegory as a finely tuned blade to explore the ways in which revenge can consume and overwhelm its victims. The colour palette contrasts vividly against other entries in the series, casting everything in a disorienting filter of hate that drives home the message of the trilogy; and this truly exceptional visual style builds on the already impressive artistry of the world it has created, taking it to a new level of immersiveness.
