Godzilla and son live peacefully on a Pacific island that's also inhabited by two fractions of people: The soldiers Shinjo (Jun Hashizume), Sato (Zenkichi Yoneyama) and lone wolf Yuki (Akira Emoto), who want to kill Godzilla (though at least Shinjo and Sato have not the least idea of how to do it as they want to use conventional guns for the job, which worked in none of the previous films), and a trio from the Telepathy Project, Gondo (Towako Yoshikawa), Okubo (Yosuke Saito) and of course psychic girl Miki (Megumi Odaka), who want to keep Godzilla alive to control it via telepathy. But while these two groups seem to have totally different ideas about Godzilla, otherwise they get along just fine.

Meanwhile back in Japan it is discovered that a meteorite is heading right to earth, and this meteorite has a monster attached to it that is a cross between Godzilla-cells and meteorite-cells (yes, I know there's no such thing, but I don't know any other way to describe the monster). So the G-Force sends up their newest weapon against Godzilla, a giant Transformer called Mogera, to kill the meteorite monster, dubbed Spacegodzilla ... but the mission fails.

Soon enough, Spacegodzilla lands on Godzilla's little island andwhile the two monsters clash, the Telepathy Project tries to control Godzilla - and fails, just like Godzilla fails to defeat Spacegodzilla.

Having defeated Godzilla, Spacegodzilla heads for Fukuoka, where he uses part of the town's structure and some crystal objects he seems to be able to grow out of the ground to build himself a charge up station. Meanwhile Okubo of the Telepathy Project turns against everyone else and kidnaps psychic girl Miki just to get control over Godzilla (as if he was unaware of the fact that their earlier experiment fails), but Gondo and the three soldiers team up to save her. Then our three soldiers are given Mogera to fight Spacegodzilla (even though they had no training at all), but at first, lone wolf Yuki wants to abuse the robot to kill Godzilla instead, against whom he has a personal grudge. It is only when Shinjo and Sato overpower him that Mogera can be used to fight the meteor monster, and soon enough they are joined in their efforts - by Godzilla, who understandably has a grudge against Spacegodzilla.

And after much to and fro, and after the battle seemed lost numerous times, Godzilla and Mogera succeed in blowing Spacegodzilla to Kingdom Come. And while Godzilla leaves Japan again for his island to spend quality time with his son, our trio of soldiers realize they have grown quite fond of Godzilla themselves ...

By the way, Mothra and her miniature twin fairies, the Cosmos (Keiko Imamura, Sayako Osawa) have a walk-on (or fly-on) appearance in this one, warning Miki of impending doom, but they do not interfere with the onscreen proceedings ...

 

Very probably he weakest film of the second Godzilla series: way too much emphasis is put on the human subpots, which seem to be especially weak and cheesy in this film, with psychic girl Miki's continuous pleas for Godzilla's life being especially annoying after only a short time. Plus the whole prologue on the island is particularly weak since the island is little more than a barren piece of land. The fillm slightly picks up when it moves to Fukuoka, however, despite some good sets and a great looking Spacegodzilla both the monter battle and the customary scenes of destruction are far behind expectations, so at the end of the film the viewer just has the feeling of not having gotten his money's worth.

In a word, if you're not a Godzilla-completist (like I am), you might as well watch something else ...
