This was one of the best Godzilla movies made, given how the '50s and '60s entries aren't well written. ToM still should have focused more on Godzilla and MechaGodzilla, they both and their battle were underscreened, it appeared that the movie was focused all on Titanosaurus. There was dynamic character development, where Professor Mafune is siding with the evil green gorilla aliens from the black hole, since he's giving fleshy muscular help to MechaGodzila in wiping humans off the earth just for revenge against humans for calling him idiotic, but his daughter Katsura is good and his father doesn't want to kill or exploit his own daughter for revenge, and so Katsura kills herself just so MechaGodzilla goes offline and Godzilla can destroy it.

Great fun in rubber suits: two enemies with endless explosions, billions of dollars of damage, a beautiful cyborg, Godzilla boxing, Titanosaurus biting, mecha loses his head, countless plastic city sets completely destroyed or blown away, and all the projectile and laser special effects you could ask for. Brings the original Showa period to a resounding conclusion with the big guy roaring to victory as hero instead of as the villain he started out as 20 years prior. As Godzilla walked out to sea, he would not return again until 1984.

A great sequel, to the well known prevous film Godzilla vs mechagodzilla. Only instead of having a teammate on his side godzilla's enemy has the partner. It has an all-out brawl, with off the chain action. The third best of the 70's Godzilla film is excellent.

We all know that Godzilla films are all about the monster fights and city wide destruction and in this regard, Terror of Mechagodzilla truly shines. It has great miniature FX and fight sequences. Where the film tends to fail is in the story. Like most Godzilla stories, it isn't anything spectacular but this goes a tad further by introducing a romance element that just didn't make any sense. It all culminates with the line "Even if you're a cyborg, Katsura, I still love you!"

This is the 15th 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 one of the best movies from 1975. It really is a must see.

Evil aliens rebuilt Mechagodzilla and Godzilla must step up again to save the earth from giant robots and monsters. Titanosaurus is the new monster here. That's about as much of the story as you need to know, but the monster fights here look pretty good. I've always thought that giant monster fights always looked better when they were set at nighttime and there are some very good nighttime giant monster/robot fights here.

This movie was the last of the original Godzilla series before the Heresi reboot and is in general a satisfying monster flick. Like most of its genre and time period its a silly movie at times that looks a bit cheap but for those who like that kind of thing it is fun bit of campy Kaiju battle mayhem

A mostly satisfying ending won't save us from a formulaic plot. Gojira just magically appears from thin air when a fight is scripted.

A stupid ending to a stupid era. Worst part is it takes forever for Godzilla to show up (but it is a good introduction). The film's closing scene is actually sort of moving in a weird Godzilla sort of way.

I've no doubt that if this movie was made during the Millennium era, it would feature pretty much every big foe of the Big G's would be here. But no, back in the 1970s these movies were written by professional makers of film and not kids who woke up in the candy shop one morning and went crazy. That said, that never gave even the bad movies a pass, and while this isn't a bad movie, it isn't a very good movie either and definitely one of the weakest Godzilla movies. The main problem here is Mechagodzilla. While he was fun to watch in Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla, here his presence, despite being the billing point, seems thrown in at the last second.

Another "Raids Again", but I think it's just as good as the first Mecha-G movie.

This is a favorite of mine. A direct sequel to Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla, this one does not mess around. It's very dark and serious but very very good. It's not quite as good but its almost as good as the one before it. You've gotta check it out.

This is a contender for most thought-provoking Godzilla film not released in 1954, along with Godzilla vs. Biollante and Godzilla vs. Hedorah. The new monster, Titanosaurus, while dealing with a comedic design, is effectively characterized and has become a fan favorite. Dr. Mafume and Miss Katsuma are also really interesting characters, showing a complexity that isn't typically exhibited in late Showa films. Unfortunately, they're not exactly played by the greatest actors, and their fellow cast is even less so. The monster fights are awesome, but be prepared, there's about as much Godzilla as in the newest Godzilla film. Many credit Ishiro Honda's return as the reason why this film has increased respect, but any of the director's actual duties - or editor's for that matter - are about as sloppy as when Jun Fukuda was in charge of the production. And that, my friends, was a sloppy Joe. At the end of the day, it's one of the best Showa films, and one of the better Godzilla films in general.
