Godzilla Raids Again and my review. Plz read. by Shin-Ben Godzilla Raids Again and my review. Plz read. by Shin-Ben
Following the first Godzilla film, after the success at the box office, Tomoyuki Tanaka, Eiji Tsuburaya Masuri Sato set out for the very first sequel.

Awakened on an island, both Godzilla and Anguirus are seen fighting on an island. Both of which fall into the ocean. After seeing this, Tsukuioka and Kobayashi arrive at the government building. They scan through some dinosaur books to find out what exactly they seen. Kobayashi sees the ancient anklyosaurus and says this is it! It was believed that due to more atomic testing that both Godzilla and Anguirus are awakened. Dr. Yamane is there and tells everyone that Godzilla can't be stopped. It was only the power of the oxygen destroyer that ended the reign of the first Godzilla and Dr. Serizawa took his own life with Godzilla.

As Dr. Yamane explains, Godzilla hates light. He believes that it reminds Godzilla of the light from the atomic bomb that was used to awaken him. Thus a blackout is enforced upon the city of Osaka.

Dr. Yamane also says that his worst fear was correct. There was another Godzilla. It was believed that Godzilla exsisted over 60-70 million years ago along with Anguirus.

As the film progresses, Godzilla is seen and flares are used to draw him away from Osaka. Criminals have their own plans and escape from the police officers. During the chase, 3 of them get into a gas truck and drive away. Tsukuioka and Kobayashi arrive in their own car and the police officers get in and tell them to follow the truck. As the chase insues, the 3 criminals drive right into a oil refinery and cause an explosion. While out at sea, Godzilla sees the fires and begins to head back to the city where all hell breaks lose.

As Godzilla arrives, the military begin their assault. Anguirus finally arrives and the battle insues again. Osaka gets devastated, Anguirus is killed and Godzilla returns to the ocean.

A sinking of a ship brings the military, Tsukuioka and Kobayashi back to pursue Godzilla. Godzilla lands on an iceberg where they intend to lock him up. Eventually, Kobayashi is killed. Tsukuioka is angered at this and wants revenge.

To wrap this up, Tsukuioka gets his revenge and Godzilla is locked away in ice hopefully forever.

A lot of people don't like this film. It's an underrated Godzilla film the way I see it. Despite the movies flaws, it's a 3/5 stars for me. The story is decent, the characters needed better acting. The special effects were great and this was the first film to feature 2 monsters duking it out for supremacy and survival.

Thanks for reading! :)

One thing I will always find crazy: how stupidly fast the fight in Osaka was. Some poor shmuk in the special effects department didn't do their job right. Suits have never been that easy to use.

I guess I'm just a sucker for giant monsters because I really liked this movie. I loved watching the monsters go at it and I also really enjoyed the "Mr. Groom" part of the human story.

The thing that gets me is these dumbass kids that say Godzilla is "cheesy" or, Godzilla 2016 will fail because it's not full CGI.

My answer to both, Godzilla belongs to Japan. Tokusatsu filmmaking and miniature sets is his series and that is an art form not a relic.

Kids today are spoiled. If it's not CGI it's "old" to them. They do not full appreciate the artistry & carefulness it takes to recreate a whole nation in miniature and then even more carefully destroy it! These are people whose cartoon episodes are only 15 minute long because they're minds can't stay focused for a full half hour. Ignore them and just bask in the glory of Godzilla 2016 when it premieres.
