THE PLOT:

Something has brought Godzilla back, the twin Fairies from Infant Island has come to Japan to retrieve a Mothra egg that was washed out to sea by a hurricane. The twins feel that Godzilla is here to wait for the egg to hatch in order to fight the little Mothras.

But while Mothra fights to the death to protect her egg, the egg hatch with twins. Now the twins quickly go to work to try to subdue the angry Godzilla.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Creature features are rarely a royal rumble like this. Mothra has his movie and Godzilla had his and together for the first time. Now as you already know by reading my reviews I prefer Godzilla as the hero not the villain so of course this will not go in my list of favorite Godzilla movies, but if I had a list of favorite Godzilla movies when he was the bad guy this one would go in it. The effects are great, the story works and I love the twins, both of them. The twin girls and the twin larvae. 7 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd yet again, this is one of the best of the bad Godzilla movies, they really started to get the hang of the effects and the story structure. Plus love those Fairies. So, all and all 6 STARS.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ EFFECTS (Cool effects, they got it going on in this one.)
+ MOTHRA (One of my favorite characters.)
+ TWIN FAIRIES (Got to love them Fairies.)
+ STORY (The story works.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- EVIL GODZILLA (I am always disappointed when Godzilla is evil.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you're not a fan of the Godzilla series or when Godzilla was evil, then this may not be the movie for you.)
