While minilla can be a little annoying at times. But there are many cute moments between minilla. Godzilla vs the mantises and spiga is good monster action.
A pointless, nonsensical entry in which Godzilla is drawn to a remote tropical island, discovers a freshly-hatched infant of his own species and takes it under his wing. Various light amusements ensue: misguided fire-breathing lessons, jump-rope with the adult creature's tail, forgettable tangles with a trio of giant insects. The little guy, an unholy mishmash with a reptilian body and the pudgy cheeks of a human infant, might be the worst-looking kaiju in the entire series (which is really saying something) and big daddy appears to have developed a case of the googly eyes since his last appearance. If everything weren't so incredibly dull, I might have been offended.
There's a ground-level story going on, too, something about an isolated team of scientists whose weather experiments tie into the climax, but that doesn't amount to much. Without a city to stomp or a serious threat to punch - those radioactive mantis critters scarcely offer any resistance - there's very little to keep viewers engaged through the dregs of bad comedy and bland storytelling. Even my Godzilla-crazed kids turned to me afterward and admitted that it was lousy.
Better than expected but not as good as the last film
If you want to know my thoughts on this, read my review of Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster. I feel the exact same way about this film as I do about that film
This is the 8th Godzilla movie. It is better then most of the Godzilla movie made before it. The 16th Godzilla movie The Return of Godzilla is better. Still this a great movie. It is one of the best scenes fiction movie from the 60's. It is very scary. See it.
Wtf were they thinking?
All in all, this isn't even close to one of the worst films of the series despite the premise certainly sounding like it has that potential. And it isn't even close to the worst film to heavily feature the titular "son" of Godzilla.
It works but it doesn't. There's parts I like and parts I hate. It's more of a minor Godzilla movie but it had a lot of potential.
Another guilty pleasure, but I'd argue that it's legitimately good.
