Okay, so these aren't adult movies. Let's be honest - how many `adults' in the stereotypical sense will sit through a Godzilla movie. Well, I will. Why the gripe about the Rebirth Of Mothra movies being `geared towards kids?' Just because the kids are the main characters doesn't make it any less entertaining. I guess the main difference between these and the Godzilla movies is there is not a lot of collateral damage. Most of the battles take place in the wilderness away from innocent civilians, and the military never gets involved (I guess so long as the cities are left alone, the Japanese military doesn't care what the monsters do). Hence, G-rated Godzilla...very little chaos and destructiveness, but enjoyable nonetheless. If you're a godzilla fan I'm pretty confident you'll like these, and if you're not, its okay to let the kids see `em. They've got a great anti-industry pro-earth message, and fantastic, four color effects -really superior. With the kids as main characters, younger viewers won't get bored either.
REBIRTH OF MOTHRA - When my nine year old saw this he wept like the Dickens. Remember, the title IS `REBIRTH of Mothra.' But don't worry.... if Sci Fi teaches us anything its that death is never forever. Basically nasty treekillers clearing a path for progress bust open an ancient seal which unleashes Desghidorah (or Death Ghidorah), a black hydra (kind of a four legged King Ghidorah) which drinks the life out of forests. The Elias, those irrepresible Earth First faeries from Infant Island sing that kickin' Mothra song and call up earth's protector (a giant moth, for those unfamiliar with the character) to go and trump Desghidorah, who is being egged on by an evil faerie called Belvera. When the tide turns for the worse, Mothra's (son/daughter?

The DVD release of these two films is very welcome. Visually, both films look wonderful, with the widescreen transfer a great improvement over the cropped VHS and a nice surround sound. Mothra 1 is a charming fantasy , with enviromental overtones that would carry over to the second movie. The films are in no way realistic, rather like classic movies like The Wizzard of Oz or Kwaidan, work to create a striking visual style that is more colorful and unique than anything found in reality.The films are aimed at the family audience, and only the adults will mind the regretably poor dubbing job that Tri-Star did with these films. The plots are imaginative, if not quite logical. But in a fantasy film like these, that is no problem. The second film is the better of the two, with some breathtaking visual moments. Some sequences such as the Death of the first Mothra and the re-birth of the new Mothra as an adult are stunningly imaginative.And the under sea battle climax of the second movie is great! It's even more amazing when you realize that these films are made for about 4 Million each, and in about 4 months! I recomend these films to kids, and adults who remember the pleasure that movies like this can give.It's just too bad about the dubbing.

Both of these Mothra reboot films from the late 90s are enjoyable. First, Toho fans take note: this series ignores any previous Mothra canon. These movies would be excellent for getting kids into the kaiju movies, and both come with a very real message about respecting the earth: deforestation in 1 and oceanic pollution in 2. They also contain good messages about friendship and family. All in all I'd say they're PG: the evil monsters Death Gidorah and Dagorla are sort of scary, but with a parent watching kids should be ok, and you know Mothra and the kids are going to win. As an adult kaiju fan, I thought the opponent monsters and the new look for Mothra were pretty cool, and the music during the battle scenes is rollicking, kind of like something from "The Goonies." (Be on the lookout for Aqua Mothra, a pretty neat transformation.) My one minus star on this review is for the studio not offering the original Japanese talk track, which adult kaiju fans tend to prefer. But I also understand kids won't want to read subtitles anyway. Here's hoping they release the third movie on DVD in the US soon.

Tri stars DVD release of MOTHRA 1 & 2 are a welcome addition and improvement on the previous VHS versions. The DVD is Letterboxed and Enhanced for 16/9 televisions, and looks great, with fine detail and color. The sound will impress anyone with a suround sound system, with good separation. The only demerit would be tri-stars poor dubbing of these films. There is no real excuse not to have done better. The voices are often mismatched, and the vocal performances sub-standard. In a fantasy film this can be quite distracting, and too often it is blamed on the filmakers rather than the American distributor, where the fault realy lies. As for the movies themselves, they are charming and colorful, if a little confusing. One more re-write would have smoothed out some of the plot points. One of the nice things is that these are films in which the kids are the main protagonists, with few adults intruding to throw a damper on things. Kids and most adults who remember being kids will enjoy them. Visually the films are imaginative, NOT realistic. Realisim comes secondary to a fast pace and colorful visuals. And that is one of the most wonderful things about them. Both films have moments of real beauty, and striking imagination. Best moments of the first film are the death of the older Mothra, sinking slowly beneath the ocean,wings outstreached as if still flying, and the rebirth of the new Mothra, growing from thousands of smaller ones.. The second film is better still, with a climax that finds Mothra morphing into Aqua Mothra, and fighting under the sea. Its amazing to think that both films cost onlyt 4 million each, and that the Special effects, directed by Kochi Kawakitta, were done in just 80 days for each film!Read more ›
