Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. is a 2003 Japanese science fiction movie, directed by Masaaki Tezuka, the 28th entry in the long-running Godzilla film franchise. The film is a direct sequel to the previous year's Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla, with the same cast of characters and the return of multiple monsters.

The film begins with Japan's government repairing Mechagodzilla, a giant machine built to protect Tokyo from Godzilla. However, concerns arise when two Shobijin, small twin priestesses known to be the protectors of Mothra's egg, come to beg for the return of the egg. Mothra, a giant moth-shaped monster worshiped by the inhabitants of Infant Island, has had her egg stolen by Japan to let Mechagodzilla operate. The warning from the Shobijin is not taken seriously, but it is quickly revealed that the twin priestesses are not to be ignored, as Mothra herself emerges from the sea, putting the citizens of Tokyo in danger.

Mothra heads straight towards Tokyo, and as the military attempts to stop her, the appearance of Godzilla creates chaos. But surprisingly, Mothra and the military force join to fight off Godzilla, reminding the audience of their alliance in an earlier film, Godzilla vs. Mothra (1964). After the battle, Mothra returns to Infant Island while Godzilla retreats to the sea.

Unbeknownst to the military, the Shobijin use the nanometal technology, used to build Mechagodzilla, to reform Mothra's egg. Meanwhile, the engineer behind Mechagodzilla has finished his despairing true plan, and reverts to his roots after remembering his grandfather's history on Infant Island. However, he is suddenly killed by the returning Godzilla.

As with the previous entry in the series, the human drama is given almost as much weight as the monster battles. This element is apparent through the conflict between the engineer and his granddaughter who is struggling to deal with the loss of her father. She, in turn, develops a relationship with the engineer behind Mechagodzilla, befriending him before his death.

The film is notable for its use of practical effects, prop and costume work made of foam rubber, as well as computer-generated imagery, which seamlessly blends together. The CGI is used to bring the monsters and the various backgrounds to life, which amazingly complements scenes featuring the practical effects.

Overall, Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. is a worthy follow-up to its predecessor Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla, featuring epic battles between giant monsters and impressive effects. It's a must-watch movie for fans of the monster movie genre and its long-time fans will not be disappointed.

Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. is a Action, Science Fiction, Fantasy movie released in 2004. It has a runtime of 91 Minutes. Critics and viewers have rated it moderate reviews, with an IMDb score of 6.5..
