Thoroughly enjoyable. The sub-plots from 'Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla' are not missed and leave no holes whatsoever without them. I was expecting a sort of 'Greatest Hits' from both films welded together, but this edit is better than that. Parts of 'Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S.' are skillfully woven into 'GAM', creating a logical chronology. I'd say the crossover from one lead to another works better than in the original film - another pleasant surprise as I was expecting that to be jarring. Not a bit of it. The end battle with Mecha G from 'GAM' - now roughly halfway into this edit - does feel more like the climax that it actually is, but it still works - many Godzilla films are equally inconsistent when it comes to major battles. I noticed a couple of good doses of Toho cheesiness that have gone (catching the fly, Mecha G's "goodbye", possibly others I wasn't quick enough to spot), which I missed, but it's not enough to ruin your viewing. No one except Godzilla aficionados would probably even guess that this was an edit. Excellent job
