Don’t try to salvage giant alien robots, because Terror of Mechagodzilla is
The Greatest Movie EVER!
Review in a Nutshell: The final entry in the ‘Showa’ Godzilla series, Terror of Mechagodzilla boasts the return of Ishiro Honda and a darker, more somber tone than many previous films. The seriousness is a bit of a mismatch with the silver jumpsuits and the fan-blade butt dinosaurs.
This movie contains:
Astromen from Outer Space.
Wait … I’m no Godzilla expert but is he supposed to be a dinosaur?
Yes, Godzilla is undeniably supposed to be a dinosaur. A dinosaur mutated by atomic radiation, but a dinosaur none the less. In the ‘Heisei’ Godzilla vs King Ghidorah, they even describe his nascent form as a member of the Godzillasaurus species.
You guys are clearly not Mechagodzilla connoisseurs. Fact check! Or you could listen to a certain podcast that reviewed Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla! Hint. Hint.
I liked the first Mechagodzilla film a lot more than this one, although the finale shot of Godzilla running in slow motion while stuff explodes all around him is absolutely awesome. Plus, the line “That’s not a fish! It’s a dinosau…arrrhhhhggg!” is priceless.
I just wish all of these movies starred the hot karate chick and corn-lovin’ hippie from Gigan.
