Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989)

Godzilla vs. Biollante is the 17th entry in the Toho produced Godzilla film series and second in the Heisei era. In this film Godzilla's opponent is a monstrous plant creature Biollante, created by a genial though mad scientist who combined cells of Godzilla with the ones of a rose. The story is even more complicated by the activities of agents of Bio-Major corporation and a Saradian agent (Saradia is a fictional Middle East country that has its own interests in this case).
