Synopsis by Mark Deming
Everyone's favorite big lizard gets ready to rumble in this sci-fi monsterfest. On Monster Island, an egg is discovered in the nest of Rodan, the giant pteradon, but when the people monitoring the island discover that a baby Godzilla has hatched, the United Nations' official Godzilla Task Force swings into action, capturing the little guy and keeping him in captivity. Needless to say, Godzilla is upset to discover that Junior is missing, and he and Rodan set out to find the youngster. However, as the monsters leave a path of destruction in their wake, they discover that a formidable foe awaits them -- MechaGodzilla, a seemingly indestructible mechanical monster made of steel. Acclaimed by fans as one of the best of the second-generation Godzilla epics, Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla was directed by Takao Okawara, who got his start in filmmaking as assistant director on Godzilla 1985.
