Product Details

Product Description


More visually splendid and imaginatively written than the other Godzilla sequels, this (the fourth in the series) starts when Mothra's gigantic egg washes ashore in Japan, having been dislodged from Mothra Island by a hurricane. Two tiny twin girls (sometimes singing like dual-diminutive Dorothy Lamours) from the island come to plead for the return of the egg by the greedy business guys who bought it for a tourist attraction, but to no avail. Radiation from nuclear testing revives Godzilla from the earth, who proceeds to threaten the egg and the cities, unless Mothra and his larvae hatched from the egg can stop him. The battle sequences between Mothra and Godzilla, and between Godzilla and the larvae, are spectacularly vivid and colorful. The DVD gives you a choice of cropped-frame or letterboxed in terrific Tohoscope, Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround or Mono, and some more extras. Oddly, the DVD contains no time code, so you never know how far into the movie you are at any given point. It is also available in a boxed set with four of the other best Godzilla flicks by director Inoshiro Honda. --Jim Gay

5.0 out of 5 stars The best sequel in the original Godzilla series June 14 2006
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
This film is the best of the sequels from the first Godzilla series. There are touches of humor interspersed in the action, but it is not a silly movie by any means (unlike some of those that followed it). I don't know what it is about Mothra, but he is just a great monster--it is hard to even call him a monster because he somehow manages to emote real emotions. I cannot help but root him on, even against Godzilla. To my eyes, the Mothra special effects are very well done, especially when he directly attacks Godzilla.. Knowing that he (or she?) was using up what little strength he had in order to fend off the big lizard and protect his own egg made me really respect and empathize with him. When his strength was all gone and he came down to earth with one massive wing protectively covering his giant egg, I was actually quite touched.

Of course, you have to love the twins from Mothra Island. They really help make this movie one of Godzilla's best. We don't know why they are so small, but we know their island has been all but decimated as a result of nuclear testing--the traditional anti-nuclear argument is made quite forcefully when our Japanese protagonists visit the island to ask for Mothra's help in defeating Godzilla. What I love most about the twins is their singing--I have no idea what they are saying, but their voices are beautiful. One of the great strengths of this film is the entire musical score, arguably the best of the series.

Sure, the Mothra larvae aren't that impressive to look at, but they get the job done. This movie is somewhat unusual because there really aren't that many scenes of monster battles or wholesale destruction.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful Monster on Monster Action June 14 2004
Format:VHS Tape
First the bad: The photographers and the director of this movie were sleeping and in their place they found a bunch of kids with ADD and gave them the cameras. Well that is my theory because of all the Godzilla films this movie has the worst fight scenes. They are analogous to a adult movie when the camera in the middle of the action goes and focuses in on the guy;s butt. Basically when Godzilla was fighting Mothra we saw one random part of Godzilla moving then another part moving then switch over to Mothra and see a part of Mothra moving. All in all it was what made this movie not get a good rating.
Now the Good: The movie was hilariously ironic. Let's say that the evil Happy Enterprises happened to return the egg to Mothra's Island, well then Japan would have been doomed. So maybe evil businesses are capable of good in the long run. Also Happy Enterprises is probably one of the greatest names for a business. All the dialouge was classic. Where did the twins come from; nobody knows.
Also the movie shows a strong anti-nuke message in a not so subtle way. For example the characters on the ravaged island say "this island is reason enough to stop nuclear testing." HINT HINT! The plot like all other Godzilla movies was full of holes and it is also obvious that the Japanease military never learns that tanks are worthless against Godzilla.
For all the Godzilla fans this is a must have, but for the casual viewer pick up a different video.

I love this movie alot. Even though I get confused, at times, I love this movie. But the story is confusing. This is the key to understanding the story: Battra was created to protect earth. Mothra was created to protect earth`s people. The reason they were enimies is because people were endangering the earth. Why would they be enimies that way? I have no idea!!! But the plot is good, and the monsters look awesome. I really think it was cool on how Battra and Mothra took down Godzilla. Battra uses electric prism lasers. And Mothra uses a combination of poison and wing lightning. Goddzilla moans and falls over. Mothra and Battra pick up Godzilla and fly him out to sea. Must have been several miles. But Godzilla tears a hole in Battra`s neck. Mothra lets go and Godzilla and Battra fall into the sea. Their drop must have been several thousand feet. Then Mothra goes into space to destroy a Meteorite. I do enjoy this movie but I just wish that someone could just strangle those two annoying twin faries!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Hardboiled Egg Salad July 19 2002
A giant egg floats into Japanese waters after a hurricane. Twin miniature fairies plead for its return to Mothra Island. In a Shakespearean twist of fate, Godzilla attacks and the Japanese enlist Mothra's help. Godzilla's rampages are fine, building toppling fun. The military fights back and the battle rages. As juvenile sci-fi epics go, this one is worth the price. The production values are better than usual. Chuckle-headed humor asserts itself, but plenty of Godzilla screen time keeps the action moving. The Mothra song, as vocalized by the twin fairies, is enshrined in fantasy film folklore. Watching the giant egg hatch is exciting, and recalls a similar scene in "Rodan." Lightening flashes and thunder roars as cracks shoot across the egg's surface. The movie falters somewhat after two gigantic baby caterpillars take over for the first Mothra. Godzilla, who shrugged off rockets, bombs, and super-charged electrocution, has trouble with a rough-hewn silk shroud. Go figure. The Peanuts of the first Mothra flick portray the twin fairy girls. With all of the tiny women's mystery, one still lingers over their little faux-fur hats. The script doesn't explain the headgear. The special effects are unsophisticated by modern standards. The monsters are more lovable than today's ice-cold, computer-generated eye-candy. The Harry Potter generation can suit themselves. The venerable I. Honda directed this classic TOHO production. Saturday matinees and popcorn forever! ;-)
