Godzilla started out back in the 50's as a metaphorical monster that embodied the nuclear nightmare that Japan, with the help of some American bombs, knew all too well. The first film was a really serious portrait of disaster and an uncontrollable loss of everything. Of course by the time you get to the 12th sequel, almost 20 years down the road, Godzilla and his cast of zany co-starring monsters have all become these ultra-goofy characters. This one is definitely one of the goofiest and stupidest of the whole series. You get a superhero robot that's an obvious copy of ULTRA-MAN or any of the other giant robots which were super popular with kids in 1970's Japan, a cockroach-looking bad monster with drill hands and another alien monster with hook hands and a buzz-saw in its stomach. Unfortunately you also get an annoying little boy with a high-pitched voice to piss you off. I would only recommend this to people that get off on men in rubber suits wrestling with each other or if, like me, these movies have a really strong nostalgia factor and you enjoy laughing at the ridiculousness of it all. Oh, and they never fight on top of the World Trade Center, or even come to America, like the poster promises.

  1. Godzilla vs Megalon is silly and cheap with lots of recycled scenes from earlier movies. Jet Jaguar is an obvious clone of Ultraman and Zone Fighter. Megalon the 180 foot tall insect monster is cool as is Gigan from outer space. Godzilla looks like a man walking around in a costume. The special effects arent that good. Compare Godzillas movements in this movie and compare his lumbering movements in King Kong vs. Godzilla and it shows that in the 60s Godzilla movies he moves alot more realistic as if he really is a lumbering monster. In the 70s Godzilla movies he moves like a man wearing a costume as the special effects got worse without the master of special effects Eiji Tsuburaya. I personally like the friendly superhero Godzilla in Godzillla vs. Megalon. They could have done a better job in designing his dorsal fins. As a movie its dumb with below average special effects. As entertainment it scores high.
