    Synopsis


    Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack
    After sandblasting away years of camp and bad scripts from the Gamera franchise to form a couple of tight-scripted, vastly entertaining flicks, Shusuke Kaneko gives the same treatment to the granddaddy of kaiju eiga characters: Godzilla. The film opens with Godzilla waking up from his underwater hideaway. Unseen since his 1954 attack on Tokyo, the monster is spotted by a Japanese submarine. Though government officials seem reluctant to confront the problem, Navy Admiral Tachibana (Ryudo Uzaki), who witnessed the rampage when he was a child, is more than a little alarmed. Meanwhile, Tachibana's daughter Yuri (Chiharu Niiyama), who works at a struggling TV station, is making a documentary in the mountains of Niigata Prefecture. One night, they experience a massive earthquake and that next morning they learn that a gang of motorcycle punks were crushed in a mountain tunnel and witnesses reportedly saw some sort of fire-breathing creature in the rubble. Later, a group of campers in southern Kagoshima prefecture are crushed by some Thing that crawled out of Lake Ikeda. Soon Japan is awash with monsters -- including Baradon, a monster that looks like a pug terrier with Mickey Mouse ears, and King Gidora, a three-headed beast with a lethal 50-meter tail -- busting up things north, south, east, and west. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

    Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla
    Director Masaaki Tezuka follows up his debut feature Godzilla vs. Megaguirus with another movie starring everyone's favorite giant lizard. One of at least three films in the history of the Godzilla franchise to find the merciless reptile pitted against his mechanical counterpart, Godzilla x Mechagodzilla finds humans under attack by the green beast. With little hope left, they build the giant man-piloted robot Mechagodzilla to defend the world. This film was also released under the titles Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla and Gojira x Mekagojira. Tezuka's next film, Godzilla x Mothra x Mechagodzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. upped ante even further, with the addition of Mothra into the mix. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

      Fun Flicks

      If you're a jaded movie viewer who can't find the appeal of fun, silly monster movies with men in rubber suits destroying balsa wood sets, then stop reading here. Still with me? Good! This set features two entries from the "continuity free" Millennium era (the Godzilla films from this time period were primarily stand-alone flicks, only referencing the original film). The films are packaged together, but are on separate discs to prevent compression issues. Both of these are fairly bare-bones, with no real features aside from the movies themselves. The prints are a definite improvement over the previous DVD releases, and you're just not going to find a better release in the US of either movie. As for the films themselves? Fun through and through. "Godzilla, Mothra and Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All Out Attack" is as over the top as you'd expect from a flick with that title! The plot is silly (Godzilla is resurrected by vengeful World War II era ghosts), but who cares? Do you have giant monsters fighting? Yes, yes you do! That is all you need! Fan favorites Mothra and King Ghidorah are allied this time, alongside Baragon, to take down the supernaturally revived Big G. If you can't appreciate that...well...I mourn for your inner-child! The second feature is also a blast. Yes, the Blu Ray DOES accentuate how fake some of the sets are...whatever! In this flick, the Japanese create a new Mechagodzilla using the bones from the original monster (hardcore fans will recall the 1954 film ending with Godzilla being destroyed by an "Oxygen Destroyer"), in order to combat the menace of the current Godzilla. What could go wrong? The new Mechagodzilla looks fantastic, and the monster action is a blast! Look, you don't watch these films for Academy Award winning stories or acting. You watch them for the escape of seeing monsters pounding the skreenongk outta each other, and destroying entire cities in the process! These two flicks deliver on that in a big way. If you can't appreciate how fun a flick like these can be, then I'm sorry that you're all dead inside!

      Two of the best Godzilla movies together

      The first movie in this collection, also known as GMK, is one of the best Godzilla movies ever made. It's made by the same team who produced the excellent Gamera Trilogy of the 1990's. There are cameos from stars of other Godzilla movies, the story brings back a spiritual element to the franchise, and the special effects are some of the best seen in any movie. The second movie, Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla, is a favorite of mine because of the redesign of Mechagodzilla, my favorite kaiju. The story does lag in spots, but it is interesting how they reinvent his origins and the repercussions of that (no spoilers!). These are great movies to watch if you are a long time Godzilla fan or if you are just starting to explore the daikaiju genre.

      This is a great value for a set that packs two of the most entertaining entries in the Godzilla movie franchise. Not of the most well-written or well-directed, but of the most entertaining. Serious fans will undoubtedly love the two films, but for others new to Kaiju media, it may take a while to suspend some disbelief for these two particular films. Both the GMAA (Giant Monsters All-Out Attack) and the Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla movies exist to showcase pure, unencumbered monster brawls, much in the same way that Pacific Rim fulfilled the fantasy of seeing a giant monster being whacked by a cargo ship. With that said, the two films show high merit for what it really sets out to do.

      GODZILLA OUT DOES HIMSELF IN THESE 2 FLICKS

      ALL MONSTERS ATTACK & GODZILLA AGAINST MECHA-GODZILLA ARE BOTH an excellent tribute to add to the NEW WAVE GODZILLA of the 21st Century . The plot lines are as be expected , but the special effects are far better than the 1960's effects we baby-boomers are so used to . Besides , it's not ALL about acting here - just to be able to re-live these magical moments are a joy ! The plot lines of both films are taken very seriously and the battle scenes are just awesome ! Quality of the disc is great too . Sound and picture are just great ! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this to all TOHO fans of the genre !

      Two great movies from the Millennium Series, Giant Monsters All Out Attack, (gorgeous vfx work, very very fun movie, lots of heart, and wait til the end credits - LOTS of heart.) And Godzilla Against Mecha-Godzilla, is a wonderful little movie, it is my favorite of the whole franchise. Japanese Language and English, with optional English subtitles.

      This set features two solid entries in Toho's Godzilla Millennium series. Giant Monsters All out attack is the best of the two, and features a solid story with great monster action and a dark sense of humor. Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla tells the story of what goes wrong when the Japanese government tries to build a robot using the bones of the original Godzilla. Both good fun. No extras to speak of except for a handful of trailers, but curiously, a trailer for the wrong Mechagodzilla movie.

      Tokokatsu and Kaiju movies fans will be pleased with these Blu-Ray editions of these great Toho movies. Needless to say, the plot is the same old of this kind of movies, and acting is far from good... but who needs that when you have Godzilla, King Ghidorah and Mothra all in the same disc, for almost three hours of mayhem? FIlm and sound quality is really improved!

      Awesome Godzilla Action

      These movies are incredible! GMK, the human characters are very likable. The effects are awesome (they're made by the same director who made the Gamera trilogy). Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla is awesome with the idea of taking the bones of the First Godzilla in 1954 and using the build MechaGodzilla. If you're a die hard Godzilla fan, you have to get them.
