A loose sequel to previous year's Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla: While earth scientists are still searching for the shattered body of Mechagodzilla after his last clash with Godzilla, aliens (led by Goro Mutsumi) have already collected them and reassembled the robot in their underground hideout. But they don't know yet how to control it, and to that end, they have employed earth-scientist Mafune (Akihiko Hirata), who has turned his back on mankind after he was ridiculed for his claims that he can mindcontrol a dinosaur, Titanosaurus, and whose daughter Katsura's (Tomoko Ai) life they once saved - by turning her into a robot. Now the aliens think that only Mafune can give Mechagodzilla the necessary spark of life. Mafune agrees, but he has his own agenda and wants to defeat both aliens and humans with his Titanosaurus.

It all of course culminates in a showdown in which Titanosaurus and Mechagodzilla fight Godzilla for world domination, but the humans have found out that Titanosaurus is sensitive to supersonic sound and this way disturb Mafune's mind control. Plus, there are two humans, Interpol agent Murakoshi (Katsumasa Uchida) and biologist Ichinose (Katsuhiko Sasaki), who have made it their agenda to save the world, plus Ichinose has fallen in love with Mafune's daughter Katsura, who in turn has been turned into the brain of Mechagodzilla ... but in the end, she realizes her love for Ichinose is stronger than her hatred of mankind and she takes her own life in order to save mankind from Mechagodzilla ... and with Mechagodzilla out of order and Titanosaurus affected by supersonic rays, it's no problem for Godzilla (who's the good guy in this one) to save the earth once more ...


Of course, the story is about as silly as giant monster/giant robo-stories can get, but if you don't use your brain too much, this is an enjoyable threeway monster brawl. That said it's of course not a good film, not even a better entry into the Godzilla series - it's just an entertaining piece of monster/trash-cinema.

By the way the last film by Inoshiro Honda as a director and the last of the original Godzilla series - Return of Godzilla, the first of the second series, wouldn't be produced until 9 years later.
