In Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla, one of the main protagonists is a child. This hasn't been attempted for a while and never really worked out. It doesn't make it a children’s movie, though. The military plays a significant part in the plot, too; keeping things serious when they need to be. This one’s more a drama than a comedy, actually. Not all actors play the right note, though.
Of all strategies attempted by humans to stop Godzilla that led us to conclude he may very well be immortal, or more likely a species and in fact not the same dinosaur, the Mecha is a recurring favorite; especially now, considering it’s been revamped. They made it to be this incredibly powerful robot and gave it an equally vicious weapon, only to turn it against humankind, for obscure pretexts.
While this script is ridden with filler bits and inept dialog passably delivered, the battles and the set destruction are worth the wait. The slow pacing is strangely reminiscent of the other match-up movies between Godzilla and MechaGodzilla made in 1974, 1975 and 1993, in which we get teased more than pleased until the last twenty minutes, at which point all hell breaks loose.
