I dont know what it is about Mechagodzilla, but despite how awesome the concept is, the execution of the metal beast in the two Godzilla films I have seen featuring it just do not use the character to its full potential. The Godzilla task force designs a new metallic version of Japans greatest foe using the technology stolen from the robotic Mechaghidorah defeated years prior, and then sends a new team of pilots to use the weapon against Godzilla during his most recent rampage. The film heralds the return of the classic Kaiju monster Rodan for the first time in the Heisei era, but the fire-breathing Pteranodon is completely underutilized, which is a shame since the costuming and maneuverability for the creature have been greatly enhanced. The action and set designs for this entry are unremarkable by all means, making it a generic and forgettable number in the long line of films. This sequel also marks the birth of Baby Godzilla, who only serves as a catalyst for the carnage as Rodan and Godzilla race to find him. It is nice to see some linear structure in the plot carried over from the previous films, but while the human characters and writing show slight improcements from the pictures preceding it, as a whole the film just isn't that interesting. Watch it for more awesome costuming and the inevitable monster brawls. Brain off, monsters on!
