Following the events of Godzilla 1985, scientists collect genetic material from the mutated dinosaur Godzilla's scales. A Middle Eastern country wants the samples for their own purposes, but meanwhile, a lonely scientist combines Godzilla's genetic code with those of a rose and his own deceased daughter. The result is Biollante, an eerie plant of titanic proportions. To make matters worse, a psychic woman detects Godzilla stirring from his volcanic prison. The military sends the flying Super-X2 to stop the beast from thrashing Japan, but eventually Godzilla engages the rapidly mutating Biollante in a fight to the death.
A scientist combines the cells of a rose with those of Godzilla to create a biological creature more horrifying than any seen before. The two do battle after a destructive tour of Japan by Godzilla. A newly released version includes many new fight scenes that were cut out of the theatrical version.
This has got to be one of the hardest G-films to acquire. Neither Sony or Classic Media have released on DVD, among the few that haven't been that fortunate. However, a real fan would know those Heisei double-features Sony Tristar have are crappy editions at best. This DV-R copy of the actual Toho DVD is spectacular. It's in 5.1 audio, re-mastered and is in the original Japanese language. Not only that, but it comes packed with bonus material, though they aren't subtitled. The only way to purchase this, and other unreleased films (like the original uncut versions of "Godzilla 1985", "King Kong vs. Godzilla", and "Godzilla vs. Megalon") is to buy them online. Trust me though it's definitely worth it.
"Godzilla vs. Biollante" is a close contender for my second favorite Heisei G-film, even surpassing "Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla" (1993). Numer one will always go to "Godzilla vs. Destroyah". How shall I begin? Well I'd like to amend Kazuki Omori for his directing and marvelous screenplay. He may not be the original author of the story, but he made it what it is. Entwined with the usual sudo science, there is also a great espionage aspect to it all. Some say the characters are stale, but this is only a fool's utterance. There doesn't need to be American-style over done acting here just to make it work, as some suggest all Godzilla films need. No, in fact it is this dark atmosphere that makes this G-film undoubtedly one of the best. The relationship of Shirigami ( Koji Takahashi) is the most beautiful and twisted character in the whole movie. I can not refer to him without bringing up his daughter/creation: Biollante. The human aspect to it that some may not get is that Shirigami obviously injected some of his deceased daughter's blood or simply a few cells into those roses. Inorder to 'perserve' her, essentially to preserve her soul. When that earthquake hit, he felt she was in danger of finally dieing all together, and so he rushed to save her via the G-cells. I've read so many ignorant reviews stating that this film's story is "convuluted". No, it just needs a little reading in-between the lines is all.
Of all the monsters I have ever seen in these films, Biollante has the most original origin. It's not a simple mishap with some chemicals or dimensions ( i.e. SpaceGodzilla...), but within that aggregation of Godzilla and a delicate rose is the soul of a man's long dead daughter. Killed by the heat of radical politicians and over ambitious scientist. The real antagonist portrayed in this film; when science runs amok and the government is only eager to exploit it even further, there is often hell to pay. Kazuki Omori has a talent for creating intricate stories, and it is in this film that talent is brought out to the fullest.
Indeed Biollante is an incredible monster, in both forms. Erica's soul is allowed to have a sad and mysterious theme to it, compounded by the creature's tragic echoing wail across the lake. A mixture of beauty that is fragile, and yet in the final form is transformed into behemoth ferocity that has incredible power. Shirigami wanted to make Erica's soul immortal, and believes that he somewhat failed. But in reality, his mission succeeded. Another delight is the composer Kôichi Sugiyama. And yet as good as his score is, he knows the true Godzilla master is Akira Ifukube. To this I'm sure any fan is grateful.
Godzilla looks bad-ass, a lot like the suit seen in 1964's "Mothra vs. Godzilla". It has the same dark eyes, that mammal-like muzzle and thin look to it. The dark tone is still prevalent from the last film, much to my liking. The SFX in the movie are top notch, and even has a horror element to it at times. The actors are excellent as well, and viewers won't fell disconnected with them. In fact, they're heavily involved far more than some other heisei films. Or thankfully not to ridiculous and annoying levels like in "Godzilla vs. Spacegodzilla". Miki Sasegusa's first appearance, and I love her portrayal of a woman's who's estranged relationship with monsters, specifically Godzilla is only beginning.
As exciting as all that is, the highlight of this film is inarguably that finale battle between Godzilla and Biollante. Mazaaki Tezuka, director of "Tokyo S.O.S.", should've been paying close attention here. The fight is brutal and bloody, and we actually see Godzilla pierced through!! (!!!)!! Who knew a plant could put up such a fight? A small joke but a terrific fight that ranks among the best. Koichi Kawakita is definitely proving his worth here. The film ends on a somber note, as Shirigami finally is layed to rest, and Erica's soul is at peace.
"How long have we have been living in such an age? Maybe it started when man first stepped out of the Garden of the Eden, and left his innocence behind. Man would do well to remember this day, forever." Dr. Shiragami (an excellent performance by Kunihiko Mitamura) creates a form of indestructible plant life out of both his deceased daughter and Godzilla's cells called Biollante. When Godzilla gets reawakened and shows up to destroy Japan, it's up to Biollante to stop the lethal behemoth. Writer/director Kazuki Ohmori relates the engrossing story at a snappy pace, maintains a serious tone throughout, stages the monster fight set pieces with thrilling verve, and delivers the expected large scale mondo destructo carnage along with a smart and thoughtful environmental message about the dangers of man messing around with the natural order of things. The special effects are quite funky, lavish, and imaginative, with Godzilla looking more believable than usual and Biollante rating as one beautifully grotesque creation. Moreover, it's well acted by a sturdy cast, with especially commendable work from Masanobu Takashima as the shrewd Major Sho Kuroki, Megumi Odaka as sensitive psychic Miki Saegusa, and Turu Minegishi as the hard-nosed Lt. Goro Gondo. Takehiro Kato's polished cinematography delivers several striking poetic visuals. Koichi Sugiyama's dynamic and dramatic orchestral score not only hits the rousing spot, but also boasts a hauntingly melancholy main theme. One of the best and most satisfying entries in this popular long-running series. Unlike most movies that have an black backdrop during the credits, the Heisei Godzilla films had special footage that played during the credits. In this film we see the symbolic image of a rose above Earth, showing audiences that Biollante is still alive and a possible hint to her return to Earth in "Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla". Yes, in fact there are three. keep in note these scenes can not be seen on the internet anywhere (as far as I have searched) or on the Sony Tristar DVD release of the film. In order to see them you must buy the actual Toho DVD, available on Amazon.com and monsterislandtoys.com.
1) Extended footage of Godzilla marching to Lake Ashino
2) At the end of Godzilla and Biollante's first fight, he kills her as he did in the final cut, by setting her on fire with his heat ray. However, in the deleted scene, the golden energy spores left behind her body rise into the air and then cover the shores of Ashino lake in a blanket of beautiful flowers. godzilla is only briefly intested, before leaving. Although Koichi Kawakita (the SFX director) was impressed with his work, the flowers were out of scale, and so the screen was scrapped.
3) there was a radical alternate ending where Godzilla actually dies from the ANEB (Anti-Nuclear Energy Bacteria) and Biollante, also wounded due to Godzilla's heat ray, swallows Godzilla and both become the golden energy spores seen earlier when Biollante first died. The scene used a combination of anime and live action to depict this, but this was ultimately cut out in order to continue the series . Godzilla died a somewhat similar death six years later in the film "Godzilla vs. Destroyah"
4) There is a famous cut scene where stop motion is used for the first fight scene between Godzilla and Biollante, but this was either cut out because the film makers wanted to continue to use the tradition of suit-mation and practical effects, and or budget constraints. 646f9e108c
