Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla DVD Review

Sony strikes again with aother decent Region 1 release of a Godzilla flick. This 2002 update of the popular Mechagodzilla is meaner, faster, and looks pretty sweet. Created partially from Godzilla's DNA, Mechagodzilla proves to be one of Godzilla's more formidable foes. It's by no means the greatest Godzilla flick....in fact, it's pretty flawed. Godzilla doesn't even move on more than one occasion when being blasted by various weapons. It's blatantly obvious there's no one inside the suit. Still, those of us who still love seeing Japan get trampled are in for a treat. Oh, and make sure to watch all the way through the credits. This is another great widescreen transfer, quick off the release of "Godzilla vs. Megaguirius" and "Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah." Hints of grain are still a problem, mostly with special effect sequences. This most likely has more to do with the source material than any compression problems. The sound is also spectacular including an amazing opening battle in a rainstorm. The Japanese language track is back......and it even has real subtitles! That's right, not just captions from the US dialouge. Thanks guys! This means Sony almost got it right. Featureless is the only way to put it. Nothing, zip, nada. The only thing on the disc are completely unrelated trailers. Yuck. Hopefully we can get the quickie sequel to this one, "Godzilla, Mothra, Mechagodzilla: Tokyo SOS" sooner than we got this one.
