In the year 1992, time travellers from the year 2204 Chuck Wilson (Chuck Wilson), Grenchiko (Richard Berger) and Emi (Anna Nakagawa together with their robot M11 (Robert Scott Field) to warn Japan that it will be totally annihilated by Godzilla in the near future ... but the time travellers also offer a solution: the dinosaur that later became Godzilla was first sighted in 1944 on the island Ragos in the Marshall islands, where it saved a Japanese platoon from the Americans ... but as a result the dinosaur itself died but was revived in mutated form as Godzilla as result of some nuclear tests. So if the aliens teleport the dinosaur to somewhere were there are no nuclear tests - perfect, isn't it.

With the help of 3 people from the present - journalist hero Terasawa (Kosuke Toyohara), Miki the telepathic girl (Megumi Odaka) and Professor Mazaki (Katsuhiko Sasaki) - our friends from the future do just that, and wouldn't you know it, the Godzilla of 1992 just disappears. Instead though, another monster shows up, the three-headed flying dragon King Ghidorah, obviously mutated from the 3 Doratos (genetically engineered pets) the visitors from the future left behind in 1944 - and King Ghidorah is much better in laying Japan's cities to ruin than Godzilla ever was.

It turns out that our guests from the future did not so much want to help Japan as to crush it because actually in 2004, Japan has become the sole superpower, and not everyone seems to like that. Emi however, Japanese herself, soon shows sympathy with the Japanese cause and together with M11 changes sides. Soon she helps in reviving Godzilla - which for some reason causes her friends from the future to want to use King Ghidorah to destroy Godzilla - which of course makes no sense, since 2 monsters are (obviously) more efficient in destroying Japan than one, right ?

Then Emi and Terasawa destroy the computer that controls King Ghidorah, which gives Godzilla the upper hand in their battle and soon he has defeated the three headed dragon, and finally Emi teleports the time machine with her colleagues in it right into Godzilla's path, who duly smashes it.

The plan though to use Godzilla to destroy King Ghidorah was out of the fire and right into the frying pan though, because now Japan has to face Godzilla, and he is angry and indiscriminatingly smashes city after city until he reaches Tokyo ...

Emi though has yet another plan: She travels back to her time (she has her own little time machine, which was established earlier in the fillm) and rvives King Ghidorah by combining his body witht he circuits of her loyal android M11 and with the revived 3-headed dragon - which is now half monster half machine, she takes on Godzilla in a final battle ... and defeats him once and for all - until the next episode in the series that is ...

 

One thing up front: Godzilla vs King Ghidorah features a script that is nothing short of terrible: It is over-convoluted, so riddled with plotholes that I can't even begin to list them all, and the film's conception of time travel is nothing short of horrendous and defies all the rules established in other, more intelligent fime travel stories and films. And somehow, the Terminator-inspired elements of the story are ill-at-ease with the classic elements of the Godzilla-series.

That said, Godzilla vs King Ghidorah is also great, one of the most entertaining films of the series full of hilarious plottwists, great scenes of monsters destroying cities and a wonderfully corny cyber-King Ghidorah. Of course, the film isn't the slightest bit intelligent, but it's great - if mindless - entertainment.
