I may not have seen many Godzilla movies outside of the Showa era, but I'm still a fan, and this one is definately one of the best, for sheer number of monsters if nothing else. Practically all of the monsters Toho had designed up to this point that are worth remembering are here. I was a little dissapointed to find that Baragon and Varan (two monsters I've never seen in action) only have a few seconds of screen time, but the biggest stars make their own presence known. In this movie they brought King Ghidorah back probably at his strongest, able to hold his own against at least seven monsters, probably sealing his fate as Godzilla's toughest enemy. I particularly liked the duality the monsters were given, at one point mere animals, capable of being controlled, at another point caring heroes, fighting with all their strength for their world. Destroy All Monsters is a great film, but it could have done with less stock footage, and more credit given to the lesser monsters.
