In Godzilla history, MechaGodzilla's appearances have been short but visually stunning. It is technically the first mecha; a robot controlled by humans and created for war against kaijus. In this new installment, we get to see how the pilots are trained in martial arts and in developing psychic powers; a much appreciated twist development that ties in nicely the human subplot with the monsters'.
Rodan's back and is much better animated than he was in the initial series. He wastes no time and throws us off-guard in an early kaiju duel against Godzilla. Shortly after, the mecha is thrown in the mix in all its metallic glory. While the battles are still amusingly cheesy, the film is darker and visually detailed. More than ever, it feels like you're watching life-size toys fight!
If you weren't a fan of the political, philosophical, occult and scientific subplots of most of the previous movies, and if you're tired of endless filler and dialogue, this is the one for you, and the general audience, really. It has a bit of everything you want and the preferred aspects of the franchise. It also introduces a more acceptable version of the son of Godzilla.
