4.0 out of 5 stars A GODZILLA CLASSIC! CRACKING!
This is one of the Godzilla Classics Which must be bought.It pits Godzilla against not only King Ghidorah, but Mecha-King Ghidorah. It foretells the origins of both Godzilla and King Ghidorah, how they came to be. It certainly cleared things up for me. I'd say the most annoying thing about this film is this android that keeps appearin in it, which just isn't interestin...

A UFO is spotted flying over Tokyo. In the end they are just aliens from the future to warn the government that GODZILLA will destroy Japan and maybe the Earth! Luckerly they have a Time Machine and go to Lagos island to get the dinosaur that will soon be GODZILLA. Then the aliens soon release the terror of KINGCHIDORA!, what the aliens really wanted to do was to destroy...

This is one of the Godzilla Classics Which must be bought.It pits Godzilla against not only King Ghidorah, but Mecha-King Ghidorah. It foretells the origins of both Godzilla and King Ghidorah, how they came to be. It certainly cleared things up for me. I'd say the most annoying thing about this film is this android that keeps appearin in it, which just isn't interestin whatsoever. Overall, a great film. The special effects have greatly improved. If You buy this and think this is good, then buy the rest of the 90's godzilla stuff, because they're just as cool! I Can't wait for Godzilla 2000 to hit the UK now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Godzilla and Ghidorah--together again for the first time, 29 Nov 2002

Take the two greatest monsters of all time: Godzilla and King Ghidorah. Add a UFO, time travelers, an android, and a hot Japanese lady from the future. Throw in all kinds of crazy subplots and alternate history, and you get one monster of a movie. This may be my favorite Godzilla movie of all time. Yes, there are some plot holes big enough for Godzilla himself to fall into, but who really cares that much about plot holes when you're talking about the king of the monsters? Here's some of the story: time-travelers from earth's future arrive in Japan via a UFO to warn the government of Godzilla's imminent return to and total destruction of Japan. But, they say, they have a plan to prevent that from happening. Now we get into the alternate history stuff. It turns out that a regular old dinosaur saved a company of Japanese soldiers from American soldiers in 1944; a nearby island was the site of an H-bomb test a few years later, and that good-hearted dinosaur mutated into Godzilla. The time travelers, with the assistance of a writer, a scientist, and a lady from the Godzilla-detecting ESP Institute, travel back to 1944 and transfer the pre-radiated dinosaur to the bottom of the ocean. The Japanese should already know by now never to trust aliens--this time they secretly leave behind three gremlin-like "pets." They return to the current earth time and discover that the three cute creatures, when subjected to the H-bomb test that would have created Godzilla a few years later, merged and turned into King Ghidorah. Now, Godzilla is nowhere to be found (and should not really even exist--but does--in the minds of anyone except the people who went back in time) and King Ghidorah is attacking Japan. Now, everyone wishes Godzilla were there to protect Japan. The Japanese send a secret nuclear sub to try and turn the dinosaur into Godzilla by irradiating him with nuclear energy, only to find the big guy already awake (luckily, another nuclear sub had sunk in the exact same area some time before). Now, the fight is on between Godzilla and King Ghidorah. If you think the movie ends there, you are quite mistaken. I won't try to describe the rest of the action, but I will say that it has some fantastic twists and turns.
The special effects are really pretty incredible in these modern Godzilla movies. King Ghidorah doesn't have his trademark roar in this one, but he has everything else a fierce three-headed flying monster needs to wreak havoc. The battle scenes between the Americans and Japanese in 1944 are an added treat. By this point in the history of Godzilla, it pays not to think too hard about things. We already knew that none of the movies between the original Godzilla and Godzilla 1985 really happened, and now we get a real twist relating to Godzilla's birth. As if that weren't enough, we get Godzilla created yet again in modern-day Japan. I guess this means none of the movies before this one really happened. Who ever thought watching Godzilla movies would require real thought?

Luckerly they have a Time Machine and go to Lagos island to get the dinosaur that will soon be GODZILLA. Then the aliens soon release the terror of KINGCHIDORA!, what the aliens really wanted to do was to destroy all of Japan! except Tokyo before they bought up Nations. Now GODZILLA has risen and the aliens ordered KINGCHIDORA to kill GODZILLA!. It was a great battle, but now GODZILLA'S gone crazy and tries to destroy Japan but KINGCHIDORA returns and beats GODZILLA. The special efects are very good indeed!.
