A door opens, and a golden seal shatters a star.

It is the early 21st century. Mankind has lost the battle for planet Earth to Godzilla, and has taken to the stars in search of a new home. But the search ends in vain, forcing them and their alien allies back to Earth. But 20,000 years have passed in their absence, and the Earth is a wholly different place.

The planet's flora and fauna now embody and serve Godzilla. Earth is a monster's planet, ruled by the largest Godzilla ever at 300 meters in height. Godzilla Earth.

Human protagonist, Captain Haruo, yearns to defeat Godzilla and retake the planet for mankind. There, he meets aboriginal descendants of the human race, the Houtua tribe. The Houtua twin sisters, Maina and Miana, lead him to the skeletal remains of Mecha-Godzilla, an old anti-Godzilla weapon, which to everyone's surprise is still alive in the form of self-generating nanometal. Taken from the Mecha-Godzilla carcass, the nanometals have gradually been rebuilding a "Mecha-Godzilla City," a potential weapon capable of destroying Godzilla Earth.

As the strategy develops, a rift forms between the humans and the Bilusaludo, one of several alien races that had joined the humans on their exodus from Earth. Their leader, Galu-gu, believes that the secret to defeating Godzilla lies in the use of superhuman powers – namely, the nanometal integration – but Haruo resists, fearing that in defeating monsters, they must not become monsters themselves. Haruo ultimately uses his means for defeating Godzilla Earth to destroy the Mecha-Godzilla city so as to prevent nanometal assimilation, killing Galu-gu. However, his childhood friend, Yuuko, has been absorbed by the nanometal integration and has fallen into a brain dead coma.

The human race, once again, is lost. Metphies, commander of the priestly alien race, Exif, marvels at the miraculous survival of Haruo, he begins to attract a following. The Exif has secretly harbored this outcome as their "ultimate goal." Miana and Maina issue warnings against Metphies, while Haruo begins to question mankind's next move.

With no means for defeating Godzilla Earth, mankind watches as King Ghidorah, clad in a golden light, descends on the planet. The earth shakes once again with as war moves to a higher dimension.

What is Godzilla exactly? Does mankind stand a chance? Is there a future vision in Haruo's eyes? Find out in the finale.

Ending Theme

Jan 9, 2019
Unable to destroy Godzilla through the use of conventional anime tropes, the constipated crew from the previous film decided to turn toward religion to summon Shenron to grant their wish of eliminating “The King of Monsters.” But they forgot one important detail: they didn’t collect the seven dragon balls beforehand. Enraged by their insolence, Shenron (i.e. Ghidorah) destroyed his believers to clear the way for his cataclysmic, multiverse bout with the reigning world champion. In a rare turn of events, Stone Cold Steve Austin decided to step in as the guest referee. Proving, once again, that unapologetic alcoholism will lead to ...

Where should i start?

This movie can't be a better ending to this trilogy.

The story is quite better than the second one.
Let's make it in parts:

Story: It could be better in some parts. The first half of the movie is kinda slow and boring and just after the first 40 minutes the movie starts to get a good pace. Also the movie made you think on the phylosophy of live and how our real enemy not always is those things we fear but the things we are. STORY: 7

Art: Beautiful CGI, i don't usually like the CGI that mimics anime, but this one ...

There are much better ways to tackle a nihilistic existential crisis. EVA, Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou, Ergo Proxy all do it effortlessly, this, just doesn't make sense.

To get the objective assessment out of the way, the film scores well in technical aspects, cell-shaded 3D isn't that comical (bar's pretty low anyway), action sequences pack satisfying punches, sound and atmosphere befitting a major production.

But the frigging screenplay...... (spoilers)

The creator of Psycho-Pass focuses on one aspect of humanity in this trilogy - an insatiable desire to own, and control, be it oneself or the planet. The first film sets up like a shonen manga, hailing the main character's ...
