Original Release: July 4th, 2018
Happy 4th of July, fellow Americans! Hope you guys have fun burning the city you live in down with all those fireworks! I’m just gonna sit back and watch Japanese movies.
Like this piece of shit.
This movie sucks. It’s easily the worst movie in the Showa era, if not the worst in the entire series (not counting the American movies). It’s filled to the brim with stock footage from previous Godzilla films, mostly Godzilla VS The Sea Monster (y’know, one of the most boring and forgettable films in the franchise).
Then there’s the plot itself. Our main character is a small Japanese boy who is often troubled by bullies (and a pair of Yakuza dudes or something like that, they never really specify who they are). So he taps into his imagination, which takes him to Monster Island. Here, he hangs out with Minilla (because we all love him, right?) who also has to deal with his own bullies: his father Godzilla and… this guy.
He has lightning powers for some reason.
I have nothing to say about this movie. The plot sucks, the action sucks, the characters suck, and Minilla can talk and change sizes for some reason. Don’t watch this movie. Seriously, literally anything else in life is more worthwhile than this movie.
And this is coming from a guy who defends Godzilla VS Megalon and Godzilla VS Gigan.
