Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Japan's favorite city-wrecker faces his most formidable enemy--a robot version of himself--in this sci-fi adventure, which packs enough action to satisfy fans of giant-creature brawls. As with the previous films in the unofficial "Godzilla Millennium" series (which reinvented the Toho canon following the release of Godzilla 2000), Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla dismisses all of the monster's previous rampages after its initial appearance in 1954, including his three showdowns with MechaGodzilla. Here, the massive robot is constructed using DNA from the 1954 Godzilla (still moldering in Tokyo Bay) to combat a new one that threatens Japan. Director Maasaki Tezuki (Godzilla vs. Megaguirus) favors action over story, which may displease hardcore Godzilla fans, but the battles are spectacular, and clips from older Toho titles like Mothra and War of the Gargantuas are always a welcome sight (as is a cameo by the Yankees' Hideki Matsui!). As with other Columbia-TriStar Godzilla DVDs, this widescreen disc offers viewers two language options: the original Japanese dialogue track (with English or French subtitles) and an English-dubbed track. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

4.0 out of 5 stars Very cool March 30, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been a life-long Godzilla fan, and I've been dying to see this movie for a while. Now that its finally out on DVD, I must say I was entertained by it, but not overly impressed.
The best point is that its still a Godzilla movie...watching Godzilla rise out of Tokyo bay to unleash senseless destruction just never gets old. The Godzilla suit in this film is slightly modified from the Godzilla 2000/Megaguirus suit, and looks alot better. But the literal 'shining' star of this movie is MechaGodzilla. This is the best design yet for MechaGodzilla, out of all the 'Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla' movies (4 in all, counting this one, and not the sequel which is coming soon).
As others had pointed out, this movie was similar to Godzilla X Megaguirus...too similar, in fact. It had virtually the same pacing and story development, and a nearly identical ending. Other flaws included Godzilla's stationary reactions...he's getting rocked with missiles and 'Mazer' beams, and they just have a big dummy standing there, completely motionless. After the outstanding effects from the last movies, you'd think they could do better than that. And once again, this is an 'origin retelling', in that its another 'alternate universe' storyline that retells Godzilla's origins. I don't think there's been a Godzilla movie at all within the past 15 years that hasn't started the origin of Godzilla over from scratch.
Complaints aside, this movie has to be commended on a few things. As already stated, the MechaGodzilla design is probably the best design they've had yet for it. The battles, though somewhat short, were well done. Godzilla was more sinister than usual in this particular film, being much more liberal with his atomic breath and wreaking havoc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Same Formula, Better Results February 17, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Scene for scene, this movie is almost a carbon copy of it's predecessor, Godzilla vs. Megaguirus. It is obvious that the same writers and director were at work here again, but with a much better finished product. One of the major differences that sets this one apart are the special effects. Now, I have been a Godzilla fan for many years and I have nothing but love for the cheesy effects from past films. However, the effects in this installment are very impressive. I cannot recall at any point in the movie, saying to myself, "Ha, just like the old days". No sir, the effects were good, rivaling most Hollywood productions of today.
Also, the pacing of the film was very tight and moved at a very good speed. This film is about 20 minutes shorter than the prior film. I'm not sure if a new editor was at work or not, but whomever was in charge gets kudos from me.
Also, the music in the film is almost the same as Godzilla vs. Megaguirus but with enough subtle changes to keep it fresh. Michiru Ohshima has brought a new level of suspense and excitement to the franchise and I hope she stays on board for many more installments. My only negative regarding the score is that it would be nice to hear more of Akira Ifukube's original theme. Besides that, well done.
Now, being American, I can't accurately comment on the acting but I thought each performance was believable. Yumiko Shaku was a good leading lady and is very easy on the eyes. There are also cameos featuring other Godzilla alumni including Misato Tanaka, the heroine from the previous film, here as a hospital nurse. Being able to see these two gorgeous women is worth the price of admission for me alone.
The franchise seems to be in very capable hands. Having said that, I wouldn't mind seeing a more escapist approach in upcoming installments with aliens, space monsters, and maybe a cheesy effect or two...just like the old days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Superb Film!!! January 27, 2004
By Daniel
Format:DVD
WOW!!! Godzilla keeps getting better and better! This film rocked, but Godzilla vs. Megaguirus is still my favorite film, but barely! This movie was soooo close, just 1/4 of a mile, and it would be my favorite film, but this is my second favorite film! The Japanese military is constructing a new Mechagodzilla, or should I say Kiryu (Mechanical Dragon), to protect Japan from Godzilla. The battle was great and the special effects were so loud, my windows were shaking! Kiryu was great, with a new weapon, absolute zero cannon! It was a little closer to Godzilla vs. Megaguirus for my favorite film, but this was great! It will be on DVD in March with English dubs and Japanese track with, hopefully, real English subtitles and, possibly, more extras! Don't miss this film! Nice Job Godzilla!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool Godzilla Movie. February 12, 2006
Format:DVD
Great special effects, set design, lots of action and fast moving. This is one one the better Godzilla movies. It has the best pre-title sequence out of the entire series. The action sequences are loaded with explosions and lots of fun.

Mecha-Godzilla is really cool looking and is loaded with options such as laser beams that shoot from his eyes and missles that launch from his fingers. This was the third model of Mecha-Godzilla. This one offers alot more options that are standard as opposed to the previous two base models.

Godzilla will outlive us all, let's bask in the glow of his majestic presence.
