    Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla is one of the better entries of the Showa era, but that's largely due to Jun Fukuda's direction, as I don't think there's ENOUGH Godzilla in it. The human story is crazy though, and keeps our attention as defined by a lot of dynamic, hand-held camera work, mod editing choices, and cool sound design. This is a Godzilla movie that's learned a little something from the exploitation films of the early 70s, so it's pretty violent, with blood spurts and everything. Some of the style gets into the kaiju action - I'm always impressed by how much the guys in the suits must have suffered - but those sections have a harder time breaking the mold. When the big GZ is on screen, it's awesome. And Mechagodzilla is a worthy foe for sure. Unfortunately, we're also sadly saddled with King Seesar, a big lion dog with droopy ears who proves to be pretty wet for this kind of action. His job is to loom large in a prophecy, then get his ass handed to him. But a lot of fun nonsense regardless. 5 months 1 week ago
