What is better than two monsters fighting? Four monsters fighting that's what. The highlight in this movie is King Ghidorah, a giant 3-headed flying dragon that spews lightening from each mouth. It arrives from earth on a meteorite and its up to Godzilla, Mothra, and Rodan to send him back from where he came.
One of the better Godzilla themed movies this one has some of the best special effects of the group.
Great fun.

[font=Arial][color=#000000]A large, magnetic meteor lands in Japan on the same night that botched assassination attempt on a princess plummets her from her plane into the Tokyo seas. She emerges with amnesia, and now claims that she?s a Venusian messenger, and warns that the meteor contains a fearsome, three-headed dragon named King Ghidorah who will lay Earth to waste. With the princess?s would-be assassins in close pursuit, things only get more chaotic when Godzilla and Rodan awaken from hibernation and start destroying Tokyo in a big, thunderous battle. Mothra and its twin priestesses must try and get Godzilla and Rodan to stop fighting and unite in order to destroy King Ghidorah, and save the world. One of the better entries in the [i]Godzilla [/i]series, this fifth chapter is the first time that Godzilla was sort of ?drafted? by the good guys for Earth?s benefit, and not destruction ? though he stomps out a good number of areas anyway. The flying menace Rodan is thrown in for good measure after a successful solo film in 1956, and proves to be a little more than old Godzilla can handle sometimes, pecking at his head repeatedly in one very funny sequence. The assassin angle is needless, but adds some of that James Bond flair to the mayhem, and feels somewhat in place during the film, seeing as there were countless spy shoot-em-ups during this time. It?s cheesy fun all the way. Followed by [i]Godzilla vs. Monster Zero.[/i][/color][/font]

Well what else is there to say? This is a Japanese Monster Movie. Something of a guilty pleasure these things are best watched on a lazy Saturday or Sunday afternoon, like this one. One of the better Japanese Monster Movies of the 60s all you need to know about this one is. "Its the one with the 3 headed Dragon from Space."

A particularly memorable addition to the series, as it was the first to feature an all-out monster brawl, as well as a drift towards kiddie fare. The imagination is commendable, and Ghidorah is a very, very great antagonist to Godzilla.

One of the best Showa Godzilla films. Ghidorah is one of Godzilla's most endearing opponents. The scene where Mothra talks to Godzilla and Rodan was a bit silly, but at least they weren't speaking ENGLISH (*cough* Godzilla vs. Gigan *cough*).
