Godzilla vs. Spacegodzilla
Godzilla vs. Spacegodzilla

2 1/2 Tohos

Plot: WARNING!: Big Spoilers!

SpacegodzillaDr. Okubo and Dr. Gondo of the psychic center of G-Force, have developed a device to control Godzilla. The project to try and control Godzilla is dubbed "Project-T." They ask Miki Saegusa to use the device, but she refuses. The psychic center dispatch two Lieutenants named Sato and Shinjo to Birth Island to shoot the Godzilla control device at, of course, Godzilla. They meet up with Major Yuki, a man who says the only thing keeping him alive, is the urge to kill Godzilla. He developed a bullet, which he nicknamed "Yuki Special," that if shot near the shoulder, could kill Godzilla. His friend was killed by Godzilla (in Godzilla vs. Biollante ) after he shot Anti-Nuclear-Energy-Bacteria inside of Godzilla's mouth. Later on, they discover that Baby Godzilla has grown! This time he's called "Little Godzilla." Out of all the monsters Toho have made for the Godzilla series, Little Godzilla is the armpit of them.

Phony BattleU.N.G.C.C. (G-Force), has developed a new Godzilla counter-defense weapon, dubbed M.O.G.U.E.R.A. (Mobile Operation Godzilla Universal Expert Robot Aerotype), and boy oh boy, can it look any more cheesier! I guess the Japanese tax payers were pretty mad after Mechagodzilla was destroyed, so G-Force had to build a much cheaper version of him! (Some Godzilla fans nickname M.O.G.U.E.R.A. "Woody Woodpecker"). Anyway, M.O.G.U.E.R.A. is able to split into two different segments. One is the Star Falcon, which can fly, and one is Land M.O.G.U.E.R.A., which can burrow underground. It can also fly into space. G-Force later catches a strange object moving towards Earth. They launch M.O.G.U.E.R.A. to fight him, but is easily defeated in a plastic asteroid field (you'll see if you decide to get this movie).

FloatsieThe two annoying twin fairies from Godzilla vs. Mothra, are back! They come to Miki Saegusa and warn her of a monster that has come to Earth to destroy Godzilla. Miki then agrees to join "Project-T," so she can help Godzilla defeat the monster. She goes to Birth Island, along with Dr. Okubo and Dr. Gondo. Godzilla soon shows up. Yuki tries to kill Godzilla with his homemade bullet, but misses. Sato and Shinjo hit Godzilla with the control device successfully. Miki tries the device out, which works for a while, but later burns out. Sato and Shinjo then decide to join Yuki to kill Godzilla, but the monster that M.O.G.U.E.R.A. fought in space, lands on Birth Island. Miki discovers that the monster looks like Godzilla. It is later found out that the monster and Godzilla have the same cells and is named "Spacegodzilla." Spacegodzilla sees Little Godzilla and asks him to give his uncle a big hug! He uses a swirling corona beam, which comes from his mouth, to attack him. Godzilla shows up to meet with his evil twin. While Spacegodzilla is winning, he decides to fly away from Birth Island.

Green StuffDr. Okubo is later found out to be part of the Japanese Mafia (Oh my!). He kidnaps Mikia and transfers her powers to a computer so he could use the Godzilla controlling device. The control device, like before, burns out. Yuki, Shinjo, and Sato invade the Japanese Mafia, and later rescue Miki. While Okubo is attempting to fix the computer, Spacegodzilla comes and destroys the building. Yuki, Shinjo, and Sato are assigned to fly M.O.G.U.E.R.A. and fight Spacegodzilla. Yuki, being the moron as he is, decides to fight Godzilla, but Shinjo knocks him out and ties him up. They then go to Spacegodzilla and are easily knocked over. Yuki wakes up and wakes Shinjo and Sato up. They decide to split M.O.G.U.E.R.A. into the two different segments. Godzilla shows up, and he and Spacegodzilla duke it out for a while. M.O.G.U.E.R.A. is then placed back together, but Shinjo and Sato are forced to escape. Yuki decides to stay inside and kill Godzilla with his bullet, but fails yet again. Spacegodzilla loses some of his power, and Godzilla absorbs it. His fire breath, like the last movie Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II, turns into red. He uses the fire breath to blow up Spacegodzilla. Then, after Yuki escapes, Godzilla destroys M.O.G.U.E.R.A. Godzilla walks back into the sea and heads towards his home on Birth Island.

DuelSomewhat of a disappointment. I have the dubbed version of this movie by Sony/Tri-Star. Let me just tell you, the dubbing is TERRIBLE! I don't think I have to give any examples here. I would have to write the whole script for the movie. The special effects in this one weren't exactly great. In some scenes you can see some strings from Spacegodzilla flying, also you can tell that Spacegodilla's crystal fins are made of plastic. One thing I really hated about this movie was Little Godzilla. In Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II, Baby Godzilla looked and acted like a real animal most of the time. In this movie, Toho decided to make Little Godzilla a "cute," anime styled monster. Little Godzilla just looked too fake. He didn't look or act like a real animal. Also when his mouth opened you could see white wires and screws in the back of the mouth! I always cheer on Spacegodzilla when he attacks him on the island. I always hope somehow the movie will all of a sudden change and Spacegodzilla injures Little Godzilla badly (actually, I don't. I just like exaggerating a lot). There are a quite a few model scenes here and there. M.O.G.U.E.R.A looks fake in most of the scenes. Enough said. Please don't get me wrong, thinking I hated this movie. Actually, Spacegodzillla is my favorite Godzilla foe! Anyway, if care about the acting is and so on, buy the subtitled version. If you don't care, then just go ahead and buy the dubbed version and complain about Tri-Star's poor dubbing job after you see the movie. This movie would probably have a higher rating if there was no dubbing.
