Why It Rocks
- Amazing special effects.
- This movie features the return of one of the most well-known and fan-favorite characters in the Godzilla franchise, Mechagodzilla.
- Great acting.
- The version of Mechagodzilla in this movie is often considered having the best design in the entire series. It strikes a nice balance between the intimidating look of the classic Mechagodzilla and the sleek finish of the second Mechagodzilla.
- Excellent soundtrack.
- This movie has some of the best action scenes in the entire franchise, despite the fact that there's only two monsters in the movie.
- Nice plot.
- Good pacing.
- Despite how good this movie is, it still leaves you wanting a little bit more. It seems like they spent a lot of time setting up the story, as interesting as it was, reinventing Mechagodzilla for the third time, and concentrating on the human's efforts to get Mechagodzilla working.
- Lots of people were disappointed that this movie, once again, is another reboot, ignoring every Godzilla movie that came before it besides the first.
Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla has a 70% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a 3.2/5 on Letterboxd, and a 6.8/10 on the International Movie Database (IMDB).
