Third film in a trilogy of hermetic tales for young minds, Rebirth of Mothra 3 is yet another highly stimulating fantastic adventure that shines through its practical effects as much as its creative storytelling. It does have its share of mental downtime, artistic overindulgence, bad image superposition and the usual filler, but it also contains battle sequences worth the wait.
Ghidorah and Belvera are at it again, and this time they've kidnapped children. It doesn't keep them busy enough so we also get good old city destruction and pedestrian terror. Toho, the producers, show that they have mastered the craft. The miniature sets and the monsters still manage to leave us breathless. This franchise has shown great rigor, talent and effort in the past and still does.
While the human side of things lacks authenticity, and we’re used to it by now, there is plenty of action, glitter and particle effect work. The visual quality fluctuates, but the score is as immersing and atmospheric as ever, to compensate, within Mothra and Godzilla history. Rebirth of Mothra 3 is the final film in a surprisingly consistent daikaiju spin-off trilogy.
