Effects
Rebirth of Mothra 2 starts awkwardly and features a handful of weird creatures. It is yet another kid’s movie; a watered down version of Godzilla and most older films featuring Mothra. Like Rebirth of Mothra, its effects are astonishingly imaginative but the blue screen work is terrible and certainly not answering to conventional physics.
The side story is kind of silly, orchestrating a sequence of events and characters there for your entertainment but obstructing the road to script cohesion. While it presents us with gorgeous decors, many thrilling action scenes and unique puppetry, in the end, it feels highly inspired by Indiana Jones films and constitutes a random mishmash of stuff we've already seen coming from Toho.
It is the ideal companion piece to Rebirth of Mothra, released one year prior. While the script is weaker, dumber, it generally holds up. Aside from a drop of unnecessary human blood here and there, and the awkward way the children are sometimes treated by superlative antagonists that bring little to the plot, it behaves much like the first installment and this implies epic battles!
