He's Back! For the 22nd time. This film opens with Godzilla wreaking havoc in Hong Kong. His body has taken on a reddish hue and scientists report that he "looks like a furnace ready for an atomic explosion". Not only is Godzilla capable of destroying everything in his path through sheer bulk and brutality, but now his cells are mutating and full of radium (the result of infection after doing battle with Space Godzilla the year before). Any penetration of his skin could trigger a nuclear explosion, which could destroy life on the planet.
