Rebirth of Mothra (1996) Review


Directed by Okihiro Yoneda

Starring Megumi Kobayshi and Sayaka Yamaguchi

Plot: While bulldozing a forest, a land developer finds an ancient seal. If broken, a giant creature comes and drains the Earth of life. So, two small girls summon Mothra to fight this creature.


Review: I’ve seen bits and pieces of this on the Sci-fi channel a decade ago. It had some terrific costumes and sets. The story sort of reminds me of that one Gamera movie, I can’t remember the name. But, anyway, it’s not as good as Mothra from 1961. Yet, this one kinda teaches us a lesson, that Toho lesson that we need to leave the land alone and stop being greedy pricks …because if we don’t, monsters will come and destroy us.
