GODZILLA VS. DESTOROYAH
Toho was not shy by announcing they were going to kill off Godzilla in this twenty-second entry into the franchise. They had just recently licensed their legendary character to Tri-Star pictures for an American remake and they thought it necessary to kill him off to make way for a possible U.S. version of the series (this plus the series wouldn’t degenerate to shear stupidity by going on too long much like the original run of the franchise). Due to this Toho went all out making this final entry (for the time being) one of the most entertaining of the bunch, especially with the new ‘meltdown’ look of Big G and introducing one of his nastiest villains yet.
TRUE Godzilla would return in “Godzilla 2000” (forget that crummy 1998 American remake).
