A meteorite hits earth and awakes both the giant dinosaur Godzilla and the giant ancient monster Battra. Thank God adventurer/thief Takuya (Tetsuya Bessho) and his estranged enviromentalist wife Masako (Satomi Kobayashi) have just found a giant egg on Infant island plus two tiny earth spirits, the Cosmos (Keiko Imamura, Sayaka Osawa), who tell them the egg contains Mothra, the giant moth destined to save the earth from whatever-it-is, and with the help of the Marutomo organisation, Takuya and Masako even manage to ship the egg to Japan ... however, the shipment is attacked on the open sea by Godzilla, and Mothra hatches and is almost destroyed on arrival, wouldn't it be for Battra attacking Godzilla and giving Mothra a chance to escape. Then though, the Cosmos are snatched by Marutomo-secretary Ando (Takehiro Murata), as greedy Marutomo head Tomokane (Matoto Otake) wants to turn them into a major media sensation - which Mothra does totally not like, so it - still in its caterpillar shape - attacks Tokyo, where the Cosmos are held, with the army making desperate attempts to stop the monster, but to no avail.

Fortunately though, thief Takuya has meanwhile snatched the two little fairies from the Marutomo organisation, and Mothra calms down when it sees the Cosmos safe and sound - and it spins itself into a cocoon right next to Tokyo City Hall, and eventually it emerges as a beautiful butterfly, er, moth (wait a minute, do moths have beautiful coloured wings, and if yes, then who has eaten all my sweaters) ... and goes right into hand-on-hand combat with first Battra, then Godzilla - but almost loses its life when going against Big G. Battra however has in the meantime changed sides and is now working with Mothra, and togther, the two monsters are able to defeat and even kill Godzilla (until the next sequel that is), even if that combat costs Battra's life as well.

The obligatory human subplot concerns Takuya and Masako who despite everything they went through in the past (the film spares us details) are still drawn to each other, and Midori, their daughter, who succeeds in persuading her father to stop being a thief and in bringing her parents back together.

Megumi Odaka repeats her role as Miki the psychic girl for a third time, which makes her the only continuing character in the Godzilla-series besides the Big G himself. However, she has next to nothing to do in this film ...


Basically, Gojira tai Mosura is little more than a remake of Mosura from 31 years earlier with a few extra monsters thrown in ... which isn't necessarily a bad thing since Mosura was one of director Inoshiro Honda's best monster flicks and some extra monsters might not be a bad idea, but ...

On the plus side, this film features the usual well-made footage of monsters destroying (miniature) cities and some amazing monster-bouts ... on the downside however, the film features an enormously cheesy human subplot that is not at all helped by mediocre acting, a rather obnoxious kid getting way too much screentime, a very blunt enviromentalist message that seems a bit out of place in a monster flick, and the constant urge of all of the involved humans to comment on the monster action as it happens. On the camp side though, the Cosmos sing a handful of cheesy songs that are nothing short of wonderful. I'm not really sure, but like me you might kind of like this movie ... but not necessarily all of it.
