Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, Gorasaurus, Angilus and a bunch of others escape a technologically controlled island in yet another over-the-top crossroad of Japan's classic kaijus. First, you imagine an epic battle royal, but then the film sucker punches you into something completely different, though just as cool. It turns out the monsters escape and pick their favorite major city. Destruction ensues.
Those franchises and their spin-offs have, at times, been cuter than horrific, and fans of all franchises find a common ground in these "versus" films. This is one of the best commercial gimmicks the respective series have come up with, at this point. It also means we get a lot of complex metropolitan model destruction and it is a beautiful thing to witness. The score complements this epically.
The suspense is effective and the intrigue explores unfamiliar territories that are still cohesive with the previous mythology. While the idea of remote controlled monsters has been covered, the idea of cyborgs was never really introduced. This sequel is high on action, is well shot, evenly paced and written with a child's smirk. Aside the occasional filler, here you get more than you're used to.
