Plot: Japan faces an attack from Godzilla, a creature not seen since 1954. In preparation, they decide to use the bones of the 1954 Godzilla to create a mechanical bio-robot to fight back.
With the success of the last instalment of the franchise, it made perfect sense to bring back Godzilla’s other well-known nemesis, Mechagodzilla, or as he’s known this time around, Kiryu (Machine Dragon). The name change is purely to avoid comparisons with the previous versions of the character. Mechagodzilla has always been a great battle as far as Godzilla films are concerned.
