Godzilla vs. Mecha-Godzilla
***
MechaGodzilla is back! But this time he was created not by evil ape faced aliens but by the United Nations Godzilla Countermeasures Center (UNGCC) to defend Japan against Godzilla attacks!

Also returning are Godzilla's son (baby) and one of my personal favorites, Rodan... Who is updated and given fire breath as Fire-Rodan.

This movie is not quite a remake of the original Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla, but is more like an entirely different movie altogether with the inclusion of the idea of a giant robot Godzilla. This time MechaGodzilla is the creation of the United Nations... not evil space aliens (yeah, yeah, I know. All space aliens are evil...), and is to protect all the nations of world against Godzilla, as if Godzilla ever trashes any country other than Japan.

There is a lot going on so lets start slow... The United Nations Godzilla Countermeasures Center (UNGCC) or G-Force for short, has been created to help fend off Godzilla from attacking the world's nations (eg. Japan) and they have created the Garuda which has failed, so they finally deside to salvage Mecha-King Ghidorah from the bottom of the sea and use 23rd century cyber-technology to create MechaGodzilla.

Meanwhile some scientists have discovered some ancient pteradactyl eggs that have surrvived intact millions of years to the present, but one seems to have hatched already! Rodan attacks the scientists who manage to escape with the remaining egg after Godzilla shows up and fights Rodan.

The egg is taken to the UNGCC where it is given to a nice female scientist to take care of until... it hatches! Instead of a pterodactyl however, it turns out to be a baby Godzilla! uh oh! Godzilla comes along and wants the baby! Time for MechaGodzilla to spring into action! Then along comes Rodan ready for some revenge after the ass-whupin' Godzilla layed on him the first time!

This was one cool movie! Godzilla got to duke it out with two cool monsters in this one. You know half of Japan was decimated this time, at the very least! We see the elite group from the last few movies have formed into the G-Force (yeah kinda cheesy, huh? :D). The baby Godzilla I could have done without but at least it actually looks like it could be a young dinosaur this time and not some kind of freakish escapee from a wax museum.
