Of the two movies on this blu ray, GODZILLA VS DESTROYAH is probably the best one. This was supposed to be the final Godzilla film, so, they kill the Big G at the end of this movie. The first 15 minutes are in my opinion, the best 15 minutes of the movie. Godzilla suddenly makes his arrival in Japan and proceeds to stomp his way through a big city but this time, he is completely aglow with radiation and is a walking nuclear meltdown waiting to happen. I really loved this scene (which immediately reminded me of the old Godzilla films), and the idea that a radiation overdose is quickly turning Godzilla into a walking atom bomb...how clever is that? The one thing I've never understood about Japanese monsters is that when they try to create a new and interesting creature (in this case it's Destroyah) their creature designs are very comic-bookish but at the 3 year old level. So, in this case Destroyah is a flying reptilian creature with horns misplaced all over it's anatomy. Dumb looking (you have to see it...to believe it!). The finale of this movie is AWESOME when the two creatures finally take a stand and wage war on each other.
SPOILER ALERT.........In the grand finale, Godzilla suffers a total meltdown (literally), and self-destructs. This also features some awesome effects work and is probably the best piece in the entire film.
GODZILLA VS MEGAGUIRUS is another exercise in silliness. Another dopey looking monster, somewhat resembling a flying dragonfly, challenges Godzilla's territorial rights over Japan and a big fight rounds out the film's finale. Godzilla here is great, Megaguirus again, is very comic bookish rather than something that looks mean and nasty.
I guess these films were being cranked out in quick order, written and produced for the 10 year old crowd, with very short production time to refine their effects. Case in point is when Megaguirus appears in a scene, wires suspending the creature are clearly visible in every scene. Kinda kills the illusion. I also hate all the super duper monster killing weapons they suddenly create every time a monster attacks Japan. Where does all of this technology come from? No one knows because in early scenes of the movie they don't have any way of killing the monsters, and, in the next scene, they suddenly have this super weapon. Huh???
So, if you can suspend belief and take this as just pure mindless entertainment, then you'll just love this double feature.
