Godzilla Vs Mechagodzilla Reviews
First of all, there's more action than other Godzilla films here, both monster vs monster and even humans fighting, doing some sloppy karate fights, but still entertaining at its best. The characters are nothing special, but they manage to develop some kind of connection at least, they're nothing great, but nothing awful either. The special effects and editing got better. The Mechagodzilla monster gives a lot of colorful powers and they help the movie and the action scenes, and they finally, AT LAST, they ultimately stop using stock footage for the fight scenes and monster scenes! The story also has a quicker pacing than previous films, and while still pretty standard, it's a lot better than previous entries. The fight scenes even get intense at some point, hell, we see Godzilla bleed! That's some upgrade right there. I really enjoyed this film.
In pure cinematic terms, this is just another kaiju film, but in pure Godzilla's terms, it's one of the best in the overall saga, both in the Showa series and all the series overall. Finally, a worthy Godzilla film after way too many "miss-it" entries. Believe it or not, this is only the second Godzilla film that I rate with a 70% (3.5 stars), the highest I've given so far to a Godzilla film, the first one being Gojira, the very first movie. Maybe the overall saga of Godzilla is hit and miss, but I still have 15 more Godzilla films to watch, and I'm practically in the final line of the Showa series, so only time will tell. We'll see if I can finish this before this year's new Godzilla film.
