Godzilla beats the crap out of his good friend, the hedgehog monster Anguilus - There is something wrong here, and has it something to do with a prediction of Okinawan priestess Nami (Lin Beru-Bera)?

In the meantime, architect Keisuke (Masaaki Daimon) and archeologist Saeko (Reiko Tajima) find a little statue of some ancient monster, King Seesar, and another prediction attached to it. But as unexciting as their discovery might sound, some baddies are extremely interested in getting their hands on the statue.

Elsewhere, porfessor Miyajima (Akihiko Hirata), his daughter Ikoku (Hiromi Matsushita) and Keisuke's brother Masahiko (Kazuya Aoyama) find an unnaturally high amount of space titanium in Godzilla's path, which would suggest ...

While destryoing an oil refinery, Godzilla meets an unexpected foe: Godzilla. Facing the real McCoy, the first Godzilla drops his pretense and reveals himself to be - Mechagodzilla. Godzilla is able to chase him off ...

Exploring some caves, professor Miyajima, Masahiko and Ikoku are captured by a bunch of aliens, and their leader (Goro Mutsumi) forces professor Miyajima to fix Mechagodzilla, whom he wants to use to conquer earth, but who has taken quite a beating going against the real Godzilla. Once the mechanical monster is fixed though, the alien leader wants to steam the professor and entourage to death. Thank God Keisuke has since picked up the trail of his brother and now frees him and friends with the help of Interpol agent Nanbara (Shin Kishida).

With everybody safe, our heroes deliver the monster statue to Nami, who uses it to awaken King Sheesar, a Godzilla-size monster that's supposed to take out the newly fixed Mechagodzilla - but proves to be no match to the heavily armed giant robot. The real Godzilla arrives on the scene eventually, but it seems he, too, has found his master - until, for some unexplained reason, Godzilla turns into an magnetic pole, draws the metal Mechagodzilla onto himself, so his long rage weapons won't do Mechagodzilla any good any more, and then Godzilla and King Seesar take the mechanic monster apart.

Meanwhile, some of our friends have snuck back into the aliens' secret headquarters and blow it apart before the aliens can do any more damage ...


Certainly not the best in the Godzilla series, this film lacks any scenes of monsters destroying cities (always a highlight), features perhaps the silliest looking tag team partner for Godzilla (King Sheesar in fact looks a bit like a Chinese lion dancer in a moth-eaten costume), and uses all kinds of shortcuts to bring its story across on a budget, and it shows. That said, the film is still fun in a childish sort of way, maybe because of its shortcomings rather than in spite of them. In a nutshell, it's monster wrestling wrapped in some stupid alien invasion story, and there'S nothing essentially wrong with that, now is there?
