Random earthquakes with moving epicentres shake Japan, and there are some sightings of a monster that might be Godzilla - and of all people, only young Yuri (Chiharu Niyama), reporter for a sensationalistic TV series about monster sightings, seems to be able to connect the two occurences, and soon enough she teams up with science wirter Takeda (Masahiro Kobayashi) to investigate. Soon enough the two find an old man, Professor Isayama (Eisei Amamoto) who tells them something about Godzilla being the embodiment of those who fell in World War II and about three guardian monsters, Mothra, King Ghidorah and Baragon, who will defend Japan.

Of course, Godzilla soon enough attacks Japan full force, and the three guardian monsters emerge ... wherever they are emerging from. First, Baragon takes on Godzilla, but he simply is no match for the giant dinosaur and ulitmately Godzilla vaporizes him.

In the meantime, the army tries everything in their power to stop the monsters, but the pompous general in charge doesn't have the slightest idea of how to fight monsters, and after crippling losses he hands over the command to Admiral Tachibana (Ryudo Uzaki). Tachibana is the father of reporter Yuri, and when she first told him about the guardian monster, he regarded it as a lot of rubbish suitable for her stupid little TV show, but when all her predictions - actually the predictions of Prof Isayama - came true, he rethought his position and now he is convinced that Japan can only be saved from Godzilla if the army joins the guardian monsters in their fight against the dinosaur. So while Mothra abnd King Ghidorah take on Godzilla, he jumps into a nice little submarine armed with a missile that carries a virus or something able to destroy Godzilla.

Godzilla though doesn't only beat both Mothra and King Ghidorah to a pulp, he literally annihilates them, and even when they come back as a sort of joined monster, this new creature is no match for Godzilla ... and it seems Japan is lost. But no, in a weak moment, Godzilla discovers Tachibana's little sub and swallows it without biting - and from inside Godzilla's belly, Tachibana launches his missile that ultimately destroys Godzilla. And wouldn't you know it, Tachibana himself survives the ordeal, while his daughter is the only reporter who has filmed the whole thing ...

 

Basically, Godzilla films were always pure science fiction, yet this film mixes up the main ingredients of the series a bit and gives the Godzilla myth an esoteric edge - not necessarily to the film's advantage, as the unscientific goobbledegook is even sillier and decidedly less funny than the scientific gobbledegook of other films in the series. Plus, the film takes way too much time to set up the story, trying to add a little mystery about the monsters to the proceedings - which is a bit silly since the title gives it all away - and not even showing a monster for the first thirty minutes. When the monsters are at it though, the film is pretty cool,a nd the destruction scenes and monster battles even look inspired. If the film just had a better story to go with it ...
