"Are you going to allow innocent men to die alongside guilty men? You have no right to decide that! That right is sacred!"
The fourth film in the Godzilla franchise, "Mothra vs. Godzilla" marked a brief snap-back in the franchise. While the previous film went on become the highest grossing entry of all time it was more of a salary man comedy with giant monsters, with the U.S. cut feeling more like a monster movie. Mothra vs. Godzilla brings back a scary Godzilla and terrorizes Japan with the only hope being another Toho superstar: Mothra.
One of the most beloved entries and one many fans say that non-fans can enjoy. Currently has a 89 percent out of nine reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.
The film provides examples of
- Crisis Crossover: Toho's monster movies began linking here.
- Curb Stomp Battle: The fight between Godzilla and Mothra is this, with Mothra totally kicking Godzilla's ass, but only until Godzilla claws Mothra to death.
- Darker and Edgier: Very grim compared to King Kong vs. Godzilla.
- Defeating the Undefeatable: Mothra Larvas against Godzilla.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Mothra.
- Mama Bear: Mothra.
- Somewhere an Entomologist Is Crying: Moths don't lay hard-shelled eggs.
- Smug Snake: Torahata.
