Yes, "Godzilla vs. Monster Zero" was just the English release title.

Ah, gotta love this film.  I actually thought the ending was fitting.  You always come away from most of the earlier Godzilla flims knowing what's going to happen, but this one surprised me a bit. 

Watching this film in either Japanese or English is odd.  It's weird to see Nick Adams's voice sync up perfectly while everyone else's is off, or vice versa.  Actually, I think the Japanese did a better job of dubbing Nick Adams.

definitely one of the best Godzilla movies.

and it was unleashed on US theaters as MONSTER ZERO, the "Godzilla vs" was just for the VHS release.  MONSTER ZERO is just about the coolest title ever.

Sequel to Ghidrah The-3 Headed Monster,this was made in 1967 but for some reason wasn't released here until 1970 under the name Monster Zero.Later released on video and DVD as Godzilla vs. Monster Zero,why Rodan wasn't mentioned in the new title is any ones guess.

A new planet behind Jupiter's causing magnetic disturbances.

Astronauts Glen & Fuji are sent up there to find why,they don't have long to wait.
Seems robots called Xites live there,also Ghidrahs having fun shooting up the planet,that's why they have to live underground.

They wanted us to come to for permission to get Earth monsters Godzilla and Rodan to defeat Ghidrah,if we do that they'll give us a miracle drug that will cure all disease,meaning we'll never die.

Who could resist that,so we agree!.A few questions,since these are robots,who made them,or did they just turn on there creators,the real inhabitants of the planet and kill them,and if Ghidrah's only driven off planet-x,where do you think he'll go?.

Turns out it's all a big lie,after a brief fight on the planet Ghidrah flies away,and Godzilla does the Highland Fling,(I believe he learned that from Nessie,it would seem to make sense,although no one in Scotland ever reported seeing this).

After returning to Earth,they play the tape,and Controller X says surrender the planet Earth to us or we'll use Godzilla Ghidrah and Rodan to destroy all of you!.

Our only chance is an A cycle literay,and Fujis sisters boyfriend Tetsuo,who's made an annoying device called The Lady Guard Alarm,just turn up the volume on your radios and TVs and wear earplugs!,oh and Tokyo gets destroyed,(like big surprise).

The horrible noise causes the aliens to finally commit suicide,and the monsters are free to try to kill eachother.

They end up crashing into the water,Ghidrah comes up and flies away,we won't see Godzilla until later that same year in Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster,as for Rodan,he'll have to wait till it's time for us to Destroy All Monsters.

MONSTER ZERO wasn't released in 1967, that was SON OF GODZILLA.  MZ was released in 1965. Rodan wasn't mentioned in the video title because he isn't a household monster name.  it's all about marketing, there.  the Xians (not Xites) are not robots.  GODZILLA VS THE SEA MONSTER was made the following year in 1966.

Okay I see where I'm wrong about when it was made,but somehow,it just didn't seem to fit the criteria,what with Frankenstine Conquers the World being made along with War of the Gargantuas at about the same time.
However,many thanks again David my friend for giving me the opportunity to return to this sight,because once again I see where I missed a word or two.

The Xians,be they robots or machines wanted us to come to them so they could ask us for permission to get Godzilla and Rodan to fight off Ghidrah,which of course we all know by now was just a rouse to get not only Ghidrah,but Godzilla and Rodan under there control to try to make Earth part of there colony.

Oh yes I forgot to say anything about Rodan,you are right,I remember now.

I said over at the Rodan sight,of the Toho 3 he wasn't as popular as Gaos,a fitting tribute to a Gamera foe,which raises another question for you to ponder,Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster,why didn't they call it Godzilla and Mothra Meet The Sea Monster?.Mothra's there national treasure.

I'm guessing because Mothra only had a bit part in this movie and really didn't meet the big shrimp,though he did get one good shot on Godzilla with one of wings.

How do I do it!?,just one word,one,Mothra got a good shot against Godzilla with one of his wings.One or 1,I know I should proof read my thoughts before post,it's just one those things I get carried away with,I'll try to do better from now on!.

However we all can agree this is one of the best sights on the internet.

Many Thanks for Having it up and running Mr.Borntreger!.

It's funny how bad sequels can get.  I was a big Toho fan until this one came out.

As a kid, the original Godzilla gave me nightmares for years.

In this one, Barney the dinosaur is a whole lot scarier than the goofballs in these rubber suits.

Coincidentally, I happened to use this very cinematic gem to make a point on a blog I write.

Great lessons from bad movies......

Cheers!
