REBIRTH OF MOTHRA II
Aka "Mothra 2"
The “Mothra” reboot “Rebirth of Mothra” didn’t exactly leave me clamoring for more upon its conclusion thanks to Toho solely pandering our flying kaiju to children. With Godzilla dead and America moving on with a remake with Big G, Mothra was really the only giant monster Toho had to roll with hence they forged on with this sequel. Sadly my instincts were right and Toho still went the childish approach, only with more stupidity.
While people are getting attacked by mutant killer starfish (huh?!) a trio of kids discover a mystical furry creature that attracts the attention of our villainous fairy of the first film. It seems these mutant starfish (I can’t believe I just typed that twice) are there result of a giant evil monster (go figure) that is somehow tied to a giant underwater temple that just rose from the ocean like a mighty phoenix (confused yet?!). The children and a duo of clumsy thieves get caunght in the temple and soon it’s up to Mothra and her two fairies to save the day.
