"Great character development harkening back to Monster Zero. It takes itself seriously but not too seriously and is a good time at the movies!"

August Ragone

"The model work was really awesome on it. It has Mechagodzilla so it had that advantage. There are some I liked more than this but it was really good."

Cullen

"I was worried Jun Fukuda was going to outdo Ishiro Honda, but Honda absolutely redeems himself following All Monsters Attack. I really found the two Mechagodzilla films to compliment one another and I really loved this one."
