Описание: A greedy developer has placed huge machines to suck dry a part of the ocean near Tokyo so he can put luxury condos there. After a storm, a giant egg washes up on the beach nearby and is immediately put on public display. The developer's plans go awry when he disrupts Godzilla's rest and the monster goes stomping through Tokyo again. It's up to the elderly Mothra, and then to its two offspring, to save Tokyo from destruction.
Рецензии: This is one of the best Godzilla movies ever filmed. This sci-fi flick contains two of Toho Studios' most popular monsters, Godzilla and Mothra, and they come face-to-face in one huge battle. Mothra's egg has been washed ashore in Japan from Infant Island after a hurricane. A greedy businessman claims the egg and the natives of Infant Island desperately seek the egg in return, before it hatches! And, just when you don't need him, Godzilla appears and begins a spree of destruction. This movie has a strong and solid plot, which blends itself in the story very well. There are a cast of bright and delightful characters. Akira Takarada, Yuriko Hoshi, Hiroshi Koizumi, and the Peanuts delivered good on-screen comprehension. And, the US version with the English dubbing is very good! The dubbing is easy to follow and makes sense of what the characters are actually saying. Ishiro Honda directed a terrific movie and Shinichi Sekizawa gave us an inspiring story. Akira Ifukube composed a beautiful music score, especially his score for the Shobijin, Mothra's Tiny Twin Priestesses. The battles between the monsters and the military are spectacular. This movie is not just another monster-on-the-loose movie with a lot of Eiji Tsuburaya's special effects and destruction, but a movie with a message about the consequences of greed and environmental dangers. This is a must-see for any Godzilla fans or just merely sci-fi fans.
