Terror of Mechagodzila(1975) Starring: Tomoko Al, Masaaaki Daimon, Akihiko Hirata, Tadao Nasamaru, Kenji Sahara, and Katsuhiko Sasaki. Directed By: Ishiro Honda My Review Oh, the terror, the terror of well it was not terrifying. This title does not suit the film in any imaginable, nor does the other title which I hear is Terror of Godzilla even though Mechagodzilla is the bad guy. Someone had a serious title issue in this series of Godzilla films. They don't make sense, but yet their movies do, most of the time. This Godzilla film starts off with narration about Godzilla's history and how they say he was a dinosaur that was awakened by nuclear testing, he was a force of nature destroying everything in his path, and eventually became the protector of his destination. The narrator also said recently Godzilla fought a mechanical version of himself created by space invaders. It revolves around a race of aliens in revolt who managed to escape a black wormhole, they recover the pieces of Mechagodzilla and rebuild which is being controlled by a woman who is the daughter of a scientist named Mafune who created a new monster called Titanasouris and is working with the aliens because his research was shunned and he was fired. Their is a man who works at Interpol who falls for the daughter of Mafune after asking her about her father's research. When the alien race finish rebuilding Mechagodzilla they send the robot and monster Titansouris to obliterate Tokyo, but Godzilla shows up to save the day. The movie(along with the first introduction of Mechagodzilla before this) was an attempt to bring back the more serious version of Godzilla films. If you like a good serious movie with tons of explosions, then well finally Toho has made the Godzilla anti-hero movie for you(in the showa series at least.) This were director Ishiro Honda shines at making serious interpretations of the kajui he created. The miniature sets look good. They look like their something made to be played with, like a child using his imagination and playing with monster toy's but the film uses the imagination of a child and translates it onto film while keeping Godzilla, which is the main attraction a hero. The only problem this film has going for it, is that the title is Terror of Mechagodzilla but the question you will be asking after the movie is over is what is the terror, because the robot isn't scary never did I feel terror in my heart when MechaGodzilla was on-screen and I don't expect you to have that feeling either. They way this film presents the terror of mechagodzilla is when mechagodzilla is unleashed by the aliens, he obliterates Tokyo in a matter of minutes but after that he doesn't do anything else. The way I believe his terror could have been presented was if Mechagodzilla obliterates the city with Titanasouris and they defeat Godzilla and everyone's in shock and they keep destroying Japan. You might believe so too, you will definitely be asking what terror mechagodzilla presented after the film has ended. The movie accomplishes it's goal, and leaves you with the best Godzilla film in the showa series, which is also the last in this particular series. Your giving a thrill ride with aliens, good plot, giant monsters, and plenty of explosions and I do mean plenty. I give Terror of Mechagodzilla a four and a half out of five.

Toho realized something after their abysmal GODZILLA VS. MEGALON and hence were smart enough to put a bit more effort into their subsequent two films. GODZILLA VS. MECHAGODZILLA suffered from a lot of the same 70's goofiness of the previous films and some serious pacing issues, but overall was certainly a step in the right direction.
Wisely, Toho decided to go old-school with the sequel and brought back Inoshiro Honda to direct and Akira Ifukube to compose one of his best musical scores yet for the series. The result certainly brings this film a level of class lacking in most of the Godzilla films following VS. MOTHRA though unfortunately there's a lot of silliness yet to be had.
Plotwise we get the same tired old formula of aliens plotting to conquer earth with a monster (or two this time - Titanosaurus makes for an interesting newcomer) aided by a mad scientist hot for revenge against "those fools". Fortunately, Godzilla is out to stop them but isn't in full-blown hero mode. Instead, Godzilla seems to be fighting them more out of the fact that he's just plain pi**ed off, and he's got an impressive new suit to show it.
Effects-wise you have to understand that Teruyoshi Nakano was working at 1/3 to 1/2 the budget of what his mentor Tsuburaya had to work with, so in that respect his work is quite impressive. This film features a triumphant return of the city-stomp with a show-stopping sequence involving Mechagodzilla and Titanosaurus laying waste to downtown Tokyo. Don't mind that they blow up the same row of buildings at least 4 times in a row - it's all great fun and showcases a lot of great pyrotechnics.
There's a lot of bizarre moments in the climactic monster-on-monster violence and a lot of iffy continuity. For instance, Godzilla knocks Titanosaurus out of the way and then tackles Mechagodzilla to the ground but in the very next shot, Godzilla is lying down alone and Titanosaurus is suddenly there kicking him in the head. (?) Most likely a case of bad editing more than anything.
Overall a worthy candidate for a way to spend a rainy afternoon. The 70's may have been a Godzilla nadir but this film is the highpoint of that lowpoint.
1975's "Terror of Mechagodzilla" is a direct follow-up to 1974's "Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla."
"Terror of Mechagodzilla" was directed by the late great Ishiro Honda and co-stars the late great "Godzilla" series actor Akihiko Hirata (this would be the last "Godzilla" film the actor would appear in before his death from throat cancer in 1984) as a mad scientist named Dr. Mafune, who, years earlier, had discovered a giant dinosaur called Titanosaurus.
Titanosaurus is the first monster to appear in this movie, attacking an experimental submarine that was looking for the remains of Mechagodzilla, the evil cyborg monster that had met its demise at the hands of Godzilla in the previous film. The evil ape-like aliens the Simians have recruited Dr. Mafune and his daughter to help them rebuild Mechagodzilla in their plot to take over the world. They team up, and they use their monsters, Mechagodzilla and Titanosaurus, both of which are now under the mental control of Dr. Mafune's now-cyborg daughter, to attack Japan. Godzilla soon appears on the scene to combat the two monsters and save the world.
"Terror of Mechagodzilla" is the last film of the Showa-Era series of "Godzilla" films and I can gladly say that this film was a great end to the series. One thing viewers will immediately notice is how dark this film is compared to its predecessor; apparently, Honda made a move to return the series to its dark, Atomic Age-inspired roots and it succeeds there. Still, however, a lot about this film crackles and is quite sensational and moves at a fast pace; there's even a poignant and tragic love story in there, too, and some James Bond-like spy intrigue (spy movies were quite popular at the time). One of the more outstanding qualities of the film is the ominous score by long-time "Godzilla" series composer Akira Ifukube. Ifukube's score is pretty dark and ominous, a total turn-around from Masaru Satoh's lush, beautiful, and exotic score from the previous "Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla." A lot about "Terror of Mechagodzilla" simply makes it a fitting end to the Showa series of "Godzilla" films, despite its obvious flaws, because four main characters (Honda, Ifukube, producer Tomoyuki Tanaka, and Hirata) from the production of "Godzilla" (1954) are on-board to make sure that "Terror of Mechagodzilla" counts as a satisfying end to the Showa series.
Godzilla is and always will be the greatest movie monster that ever lived. I love Godzilla and his films. I've been watching them since I was a kid. Godzilla's transformation from rampaging menace in "Godzilla" (1954) to hero over the course of the films in the Showa series was inevitable, in my opinion, from the second that a sequel to the film was hastily commissioned by Toho in 1955 called "Godzilla Raids Again." And not to mention that the monster had become highly bankable as a children's icon over the years since his debut.
But his return to menace in "Godzilla 1985" (1984) was the first instance that Godzilla had not outlived his usefulness as cinema's greatest movie monster.
