Rebirth of Mothra II (1997)

The peace of Infant Island is shaken when the Elias sisters sense something threatening on the horizon. The ocean is being contaminated and it’s up to them and a trio of schoolchildren to put a stop to it before a fierce aquatic terror rises from the deep and destroys all marine life.
It’s a more kid-friendly sequel that works the three youngsters into the plot a lot better than the previous film did, but it’s not as good overall. Their adventure had a slight Lucas and Spielberg influence that I really disliked.
Mothra (well, technically Mothra’s son, Mothra Leo) is super-brave and keeps the excitement meter high every time he swoops in on his rainbow-coloured wings. He has some powerful attacks that his mother lacked, which was eyebrow-raising and convenient.
