Verdict: Disappointing Conclusion

Story: Godzilla: The Planet Eater starts where the last film finished, Mecca-Godzilla was defeated, Haruo is feeling the guilt of losing Yuko in the battle with her holding on with the metal infused with her body, Godzilla is left in a dormant state with Metphies turning to religion to bring the monster back to life.

The next threat is coming from of planet who want to destroy the technology that could bring Godzilla back, only for a new threat to arrive, Ghidorah who can only be defeated by using the power of Godzilla, who will take the endgame?

Thoughts on Godzilla: The Planet Eater

Characters – Haruo Sakaki is lead soldier that made the difficult decision in the last film, he is still recovering from losing Yuko and must go into hiding until the military side of the war have moved on, only he learns about the bigger plan and must stop Metphies from total destruction. Metphies revealed himself last time out, he was a victim of the global destruction off his own planet, he wants to continue the destruction of the people not worthy of being part of his big plans for the universe. Godzilla is the iconic figure who is now dormant, he is barely used in this film which is a massive disappointment. Ghidorah is the creature that comes to Earth only to become the most difficult opponent for Godzilla, this creature looks wonderful, as it consumes planets.

StoryThe story continues the trilogy of the Godzilla anime films, we pick up right back where we finished the last movie, as the battle has ended for now, only the next threat to come, one that could destroy Earth forever and Haruo must come to face his own emotions if he can stop the destruction. Now with this one you do need to have seen the previous two films which are crucial to understand the struggles Haruo faces. If you do come here to see Godzilla in action you will be disappointed because he is barely used in the film. the story does seem to fizzle out for the scale of the battles we have seen too.

Sci-FiIn the world of sci-fi Godzilla is a big figure, this film is set well into the future with the iconic monster facing off against one of the biggest opponents ever.

SettingsThe film is set on the modern era Earth which is still filled with the destruction of the previous battles and the lack of technology the future offered.

AnimationThe animation standard is strong through the film which has been on the same through the series.


Scene of the Movie –
The appearance of Ghidorah.

That Moment That Annoyed Me The lack of Godzilla action.

Final ThoughtsThis is a disappointing ending to the franchise which has built up well and different enough from live-action series.

Overall: Trilogy that fizzles out.
