Godzilla, Godzilla (anime)

review by
Mike Haberfelner

After the disaster that happened with Mechagodzilla City in Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle, the human refugees who have just returned to earth are pretty distraught as they know it's only a matter of time until Godzilla will return to life. But their alien ally Metphies seems to have an answer: Form a religion that worships Haruo as their hero/prophet and thus a proof of their God's existence. Now Haruo doesn't want any of this as he still grieves the death of Yuko in the aftermath of the last movie's battle, and for a time, he even leaves his comrades with the help of native earthling twins Miana and Maina, who have developed a soft spot for him. But Metphies' religion doesn't need Haruo as more than a symbol anyways, and eventually, in a big ceremony, he and his followers summon the one being that can stop Godzilla: Ghidorah, though not the three headed dragon you know from earlier movies but a trio of pathways to another dimension, with each sporting a dragon head - you better don't ask. These dragon heads soon sink their teeth into Godzilla while he can do nothing to stop them, as they don't exist in this dimension. Problem is, the portals are not only here to destroy Godzilla but to suck up and destroy the whole world. Haruo finds that out, but when he confronts Metphies with that, Metphies takes him on a mental journey, trying to convince him that the destruction of earth is pretty much the way of things. One of the twins finds that out though and sends Haruo a message that in order to drag the dragon heads onto our plane of existence and make them vulnerable, one has to destroy the eyes of their controler - Metphies. Haruo does just that, and soon enough, Godzilla destroys the dragon heads, and earth is saved. It's still ruled by Godzilla, but the refugees and the natives come to an agreement to live together. And they even try to build another robot out of the nanometal left from Mechagodzilla City to eventually defeat Godzilla after all ...


After the rather solid Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle, Godzilla: The Planet Eater unfortunately is a bit of a letdown, a movie with way too esoteric (and also far-fetched) a plot to properly suck one in (especially since this is supposed to be a monster movie), while being rather low on the action side of things. And the references to Ghidorah and Mothra, two beloved monsters from the Godzilla universe, come in as rather heavy-handed fan-pleasers, especially since their renditions in this movie don't have anything to do with the classic monsters (which would have actually made the movie more interesting). A wasted chance, pretty much.
