Surely if you're going to kick off a film with a series of barely-related scenes and events, you should at least tie them together with some atmospheric music? Not so GM&KG:GMA-OA (baddest acronym evah?), which spends far too long, even by Toho standards, following around some boring humans in their leisurely, tension-free attempts to predict the coming battle. As for the eventual showdown, Baragon's run-in with Godzilla gives us a refreshing change of scenery and lots of 'ouch!' moments, but the three-way clash between Mothra, King G and Godzilla is over-crowded with pyrotechnics, with Mothra once again turned to ash.
