This may be one of the worst in the whole franchise. Never has there been so much happening on screen...and yet strangely nothing at all. There are some cool things though such as Space Godzilla himself, the lone soldier plotting to kill Godzilla and the plot to control Godzilla's mind. Sadly though, this film has virtually no focus, rather blain cinematography and effects, poorly written dialogue and the horrible to be behold Kaiju known as Little Godzilla. The outer space scenes specifically look as though they were filmed in a child's shoebox diorama of a star field. This film looks as if it were executed with the same budget as an episode of Power Rangers/Super Sentai. If you watch this, just skip to the third act and watch the final fight. You're not missing anything worth watching.

More fun than almost every other entry in the Heisei series and Spacegodzilla is absolutely badass, but it gets really stupid at times. But it's the enjoyable type of stupid.

Godzilla vs spacegodzilla is a cheesy 90's Godzilla movie. Featuring godzilla's space clone, although no the worst Heisei Godzilla movie it is by no means the best. But nonetheless it has great monster fights, and has a stable plot.

This is the 21st Godzilla movie. It is also the 8th Mothra movie. Most of the Godzilla movie made before it are better. Most of the Mothra movie made before it are better. The 19th Godzilla movie is also the 7th Mothra movie. It is called Godzilla and Mothra and the battle for the earth. This one is better. Godzilla vs Gigan is better then this movie. That is the 12th Godzilla movie. It is also the 6th Mothra movie. This is a great film. See all the Mothra movies. They are great movies.

This was probably the first Godzilla film I really didn't care for. This may be because I've recently introduced my children to the charms of rubber suited monsters stomping on miniature cities and this entry into the Godzilla series seemed out of place in that it appeared to be trying to be more gritty and violent than other Godzilla films. I was pretty surprised at the level of rubber suited gore in the film, which by movie violence standards is still pretty mild, but still seemed out of place in a Godzilla film. The story here is that Godzilla's spores have drifted out into space and created a new powerful "Space Godzilla." Godzilla then teams up with a new Pacific Rim-like Jaegers created by the UN to fight the endless Kaiju problems that seem to haunt Japan. There are enough monster fights to not make this film horrible and the special effects are decent, while still certainly retaining the charms of rubber suited men stropping on tiny cities, but the tone of this film seemed too serious for a Godzilla picture.

One of the best Kaiju battles of all-time!

In the sixth installment of the second Godzilla movie series, Godzilla has to save the planet earth from his evil double from outer space, Spacegodzilla. This movie is probably the worst of the second series. It has so many problems that it out ways the pros of the movie. The first problem is that the movie is boring. There is barely any monster fights and it focuses more on the humans, which is another problem with the movie. The humans are so uninteresting and boring you really don't care for them and sometimes are annoying and cliche. The next problem is that there are so many plot points in the movie and most of them are either executed so quickly that you just don't care about, don't even matter or never brought up again. The last problem is that some of the special effects look rushed. In some scenes you can see the suits falling apart or see the strings that are holding the props. One good thing about the movie is that the action is really good and are really interesting to watch.
Final Verdict- Besides having good action, there's nothing really interesting in this movie. I don't really recommend this movie to anyone except maybe for hardcore Godzilla fans. I give this movie a 2 out of 5 stars.

This is the worst in the Godzilla Heisei Series!

How could you hate a movie where they literally named the villain "SpaceGodzilla"? It's stupidly brilliant.

In yet another installment of the seemingly never ending Godzilla franchise we are presented with a perfectly entertaining yet slightly average movie... The truth is if you enjoy watching monsters trying to destroy each other in an epic showdown it doesn't matter how average the story is, you will find something to like about it... I have to say however this has the best special effects so far in a Godzilla title!

One of the coolest Godzilla movies to date. I love the premise of it and I think it's quite underrated. The space scenes are great in their cheesiness glory. The fights are great. Spacegodzilla is cool and its an overall awesome movie. Check it out.

Godzilla's 2nd clone is here and is a colorization of Super Godzilla

Good human characters, great special effects, and amazing fight scenes. This isn't one of the best Godzilla films, but it's still a lot of fun!

after several masterful godzilla films we come to this descent one. its not the last film in the heisie series so its not too big a deal. it has great monster fighting action, good human characters, and that fantasty element i love but godzilla jr looks like crap and its back to being just plain silly. besides how many types of Godzillas do we need.

space godzilla looks cool

This is probably the most disliked entry of the Heisei series. The story deals with a space monster created by Godzilla's cells called SpaceGodzilla. During this a giant robot called Moguera is constructed. The story takes many turns and the characters aren't developed and unmemorable. It clear this movie was rushed from the story to painfully obvious strings. There are some good effects now and then and SpaceGodzilla's design is pretty cool. In the end while it's not one of the best it certainly isn't the worst.

So bad It's Good Rating: 4 / 5

"Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla" might have some pretty cool monsters featured in it, but it just might be the second-worst Godzilla movie, besting "King Kong vs. Godzilla" only because the special effects are better. The plot is laughable and padded out but here goes: The film begins with G-Force, Japan's anti-Godzilla taskforce arriving on Birth Island where Godzilla and a grown-up Baby Godzilla (now called Little Godzilla) have made their home. Two different strategies to tackle Godzilla are being explored there: psychic Miki Saegusa (Megumi Odaka) is in charge of Project T (for telepathy), which aims to render Godzilla docile through telepathic manipulation. Project M, headed by the military component of G-Force aims to simply kill Godzilla with their latest giant robot: Moguera. When the mind-control solution fails, G-Force gets ready to take down Godzilla when a menace from space arrives. The appropriately named Spacegodzilla was created when Godzilla's DNA was sucked into a black hole, emerged through a white hole and mutated with some space crystals. This cruel monster is travelling to Earth to kill Godzilla and take over our planet. Can humanity and Godzilla set aside their differences long enough to tackle this new threat?

There is simultaneously nothing and a ton of stuff going on in this film. The beginning is filled with a bunch of plots that get resolved or dumped quickly, the middle is filled with scenes of monsters running amuck while Japanese citizens are seen running away over and over and then the end features a traditional showdown with all of the monsters and a callback to some of the more important ideas set up at the beginning. We have this plot about Lieutenant Koji Shinjo (Jun Hashizume) wanting to kill Godzilla because his buddy died in "Godzilla 1985". This guy is a real moron because instead of using some of the tried-and-true methods that stopped Godzilla in the past (like the cadmium missiles from 1985, or the anti-radiation bacteria from "Godzilla vs. Biollante") he comes up with these bullets that contain coagulant. He says that he just needs to hit Godzilla in a weak spot underneath his armpit and BAM! The monster is dead. Why he doesn't share this plan with anyone else and why he thinks these tiny, two-inch long bullets could possibly penetrate Godzilla's thick hide, I have no idea. This character is one of the most boring, most frustrating characters in the entire franchise. Not only is the actor terrible, but when he is given control of Moguera, he deliberately drops the mission that is assigned to him (which is to attack SpaceGodzilla) in order to get some revenge on the King of the Monsters. He jeopardizes the lives of everyone on the planet because of a grudge. This character stands out as particularly bad, but in truth not a single one of the human characters really come off as interesting. The co-pilots for the Moguera are bland, Miki does very little and provides mostly padding for the film. After her effort to mind-control Godzilla fails, she returns to her tent defeated. Later that night, she is kidnapped by the Japanese Mafia. The crime bosses reveal that they will use her to gain control of the kaiju and take the world for themselves. About five minutes later, their plan is foiled and we never hear from them again. What a waste.

When it comes to the monster component of the film, the characters look great and are ripe with potential, but they prove to be yet another disappointment because the film doesn't really do anything with them. The idea of an evil Godzilla counterpart from space has been done before (With Mechagodzilla I) but this time we get what is essentially an evil Godzilla from a parallel dimension. This creature has some some interesting powers which including crystal missiles, gravity manipulation and beams from its mouth. It can also fly and has a distinct personality since it appears to love beating up on creatures that are weaker than it is. Next we have Moguera (or M.O.G.U.E.R.A / Mobile Operation Godzilla Universal Expert Robot Aero-Type), which is actually an update of a monster from "The Mysterians". It's a cool callback for hardcore fans of the Toho films and it's actually a breath of fresh air to see a robot that isn't just a supped-up jet plane or the robotic equivalent of an already-popular monster. It can split into the separate vehicles, has a drill for a nose, spiralling missiles in its hands, lasers from its eyes, lasers from its chest, can fly, can burrow underground, it's got a bit of everything! Godzilla looks good as usual, but in this film you can clearly tell that the suit is getting worn-out. There's an infamous scene where the tip of his badly mangled tail almost flies off. The highlight in terms of monsters is actually Little Godzilla, who is truly adorable and even has its share of funny, memorable moments. Too bad this character gets kidnapped at the beginning of the film and doesn't appear or get mentioned again until the very end of the movie. In terms of design and look, these guys all look awesome but are thrown into some lackluster battles. Moguera basically gets itself nearly destroyed in every single encounter and never feels like a genuine threat to either monsters (really doesn't feel like a level up from Mecha King Ghidorah or Mechagodzilla 2). The first battle between Godzilla and Spacegodzilla is over before you can blink and the final fight is filled with developments that come out of nowhere. It's a big Deus Ex-Machina that leaves you really frustrated and even a bit confused.

Honestly, I was looking forward to this one because the monsters seem to have a lot of potential but it was a big disappointment. When the best part of a movie called "Godzilla vs. Spacegodzilla" are the scenes where Little Godzilla runs around being cute, you know its trouble. You would get a more satisfying showdown by selecting the principal kaiju and playing a free-for-all 3 player game of "Godzilla Save the Earth". The upside is that as a bad movie you can make fun of, it's pretty good. You can make some good penguin jokes at the expense of Moguera, there are so many scenes of padding where people are just running away from the monsters that it becomes laughable and the human characters are also easy to make fun of. If you include this one in your Godzillathon, make sure you put the subtitles on, watch the English dub and just laugh the whole way through. (English Dub on Dvd, May 10, 2014)

More like Godzilla vs a space hedgehog with the face of Diablo. Best cinematography and narrative from this era of Godzilla films.

This one is one of the weaker entries in the second series favoring a more campy tone rather than a more serious one. Absurd science is expected but if your going to give an explanation please stick with it. This movie changes its story bizarrely halfway through. SpaceGodzilla is also a rather silly looking opponent. Still its fun at times in its own goofy way
