The title "Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla II" is misleading because it's not a sequel to any other Hensei film, the 2 is just there to differentiate it from the Showa-era MechaGodzilla confrontation. Also, it doesn't do justice to the fact that it's also Rodan's Hensei introduction, or the inclusion of a cute Baby Godzilla (so Son of Godzilla II?) that ISN'T Minilla, and is actually the closest we'll ever come to seeing Godzuki in live action. A lot of monsters and a lot of action. Violent, explosive action. Definitely the most savage yet, and I'm putting that in the positive column. It does beg a lot of questions about Godzilla's biology, introducing a secondary spinal brain to the Mythos and making us wonder how Rodan is actually related to the Godzilla family, and whether GZ is female or hermaphroditic and asexual, or what. The characters take it in their stride so we don't get the answers they refuse to seek. At least MechaGodzilla's origins are connected to the time travelers from a couple of movies back, which is good justification for Japan suddenly having that tech (but don't think about it too hard). Huge fun, fierce fights, a cute baby, psychic kids who sing into the monsters' heads, super combining mech robots... We can indeed say the winner... is life.
