Unfortunately, you have to slog through about an hour of ridiculous acting and “drama” to get the entrée. Sorta like a restaurant that gives you three courses of salad, then finally makes with the real food when you’re starved and full of tasteless greens. Definitely see this for completion’s sake as a cinephile, to shore up some of your kaiju education, but don’t waste your time if you have better things to do. Like, pretty much anything. Even a Paul W.S. Anderson movie. Yeah, I went there, Mothramaniacs, what of it?

-> 3/10

Mothra is useless as well as a terrible mother. Her children are far superior and her sister (Batra, who is a bat, I know, how the heck is a bat related to a moth) is total badass.
