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.
Years into the future and the human race has been defeated several times by the new ruling force of the planet: "kaijus". And the ruler of that force is Godzilla, The King of the Monsters. ... See full summary »
In the distant future, humans are declared "illegal residents" and hunted to near extinction by murderous robots. One day, a group of human scavengers come across a strange man named Killy, who may be the key to humanity's survival.
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
Haruo's English voice actor Chris Niosi reportedly got so upset by the ending that he actually cried while recording his lines. 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 »
No spoilers here. Similar to the first movie, humans come up against overwhelming odds as they take on a Godzilla far more dangerous than they ever imagined. At 300 ft tall, this Godzilla has many times the power of its earlier state.
The animation was good, translation good, action excellent. The entire story made sense, didn't really jump the shark. It has everything going for it, right up to the end... where they leave it hanging in bound-to-be-a-sequel land.
Just giving fair warning; don't go into this film expecting any resolution. It makes a point (and a good one), resolves that point, but then just... ends.
That alone knocked it down 4 points in my rating system, from a very solid movie to "What were they thinking?" status. It's good enough to reach 6 points, but with that ending, no further. One can foresee they plan to stretch out this film franchise just as long as they possibly can, making it predictable they will *never* provide an actual conclusion to the story.
Other than that, great little movie.
