It's been 18 years since Shusuke Kaneko's Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack--The movie that took the Monster King and his adversaries into a controversial direction. The risk paid off after saving the Millennium series for another three entries.

The success of this movie, the reasons behind its controversial decisions, the relevant themes it carried and the long road to Kaneko's dream of directing a Godzilla film is all chronicled in my following article:

I haven't gotten to see this film in full, but man, the visual effects and Ko Otani's music are phenomenal.

But I still think they should have gone with their original plan to have it be Baragon, Anguirus, and Varan in this movie.

A true fan can acknowledge the bad while still appreciating and cherishing the good.

Happy Birthday, GMK

The film is one of my top three favorite in the franchise and the last one I consider truly great. Even with King Ghidorah's unusual role, it's a successful venture into Japan's growing problems at the time. Its themes have became more and more relevant over the years--We need GMK.

Not a movie I care for much but clearly a film held highly by the fanbase.

Like the majority of the fanbase I will forever be peeved that Anguirus and Varan were snubbed, but aside from that this movie is fantastic, easily some of the best suitmation the franchise has to offer. Reading the article, I'm curious why the dorsal plates on Godzilla were built to retract, it seems both odd and potentially cool. By any chance does anyone know if there is footage of that feature?

Gomi: Ninja Monster I've heard it said that you can kind of see the dorsal spines extend slightly when he charges up his atomic ray, but I haven't been able to catch that myself.

A true fan can acknowledge the bad while still appreciating and cherishing the good.

Gomi: Ninja Monster,
JurassicKaiju14 is correct. The dorsal plates extend slightly as he powers up his atomic ray, though it doesn't show up very well on-screen.

You can see how the dorsal fin casts and mechanism worked as they're building the suit here.

Hmm, I'll have to pay closer attention next time I watch it then.

Wow, that wasn't at all what I was thinking when I read "retract." I was thinking they sunk into his back, but that looks seriously awesome, I'd love to see them revisit the idea in a future film, maybe to make Godzilla more expressive or to pulse upwards while charging his Atomic ray. Thanks for the help!

Yes, finally. This movie, along with Godzilla: Final Wars and Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla, is probably one of the Millennium Era Godzilla films.

Happy 18th Anniversary, GMK. :)

I highly recommend it. It's awesome, and as far as I'm aware, it is the only Godzilla film to be made by a pacifist.

If that doesn't say awesome, then I don't know what does.

MinecraftDinoKaiju,
I don't know if Kaneko has ever called himself a pacifist, but he's certainly against a lot of things that were going on in Japan at the time that have evolved into the issues we see today.

Honda was a pacifist, though.

@G. H. (Gman)

But like I said, I wasn't sure.

Thanks for the clarification, though.
