The King of the Monsters has his claws full when alien apes from The Third Planet from the Black Hole threaten Earth with a robot Godzilla, forcing the Big G to butt heads with the beast of tin in this typically loud Kaiju bash.


One of the better Godzilla flicks from the 1970s features some well-staged battles and unlike like some of the stock footage heavy entries that proceeded it, all new monster footage. The film’s original BIONIC MONSTER title was quickly changed to GODZILLA VS. THE COSMIC MONSTER as the distributing company releasing the film in the US were threatened with lawsuits from Universal Studios for the title’s similarity to their The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman series. Most commonly known as GODZILLA VS. MECHAGODZILLA.
