Format:VHS Tape
Godzilla talks in this movie. I don't know who came up with this idea or why, nor do I know why his voice is made to sound like a Billy Crystal impersonation of an old Jewish man. Thankfully, Godzilla is a monster of few words; he and Anguiras speak only a couple of times in the movie. As for the plot, it is your typical inane Godzilla story--aliens have begun building a Children's Land Amusement Park, centered around a giant Godzilla replica; claiming to be seeking world peace, they are actually plotting to take over the earth. An out-of-work cartoonist, whose comics feature such horrible monsters as the Monster of Homework and the Monster of Overbearing Mothers, manages to stumble across the group's evil plans. Working with such allies as a black belt lady not immune to fainting and a Japanese Jerry Garcia lookalike, he sets about foiling the plans of the bad guys. The aliens send for King Ghidorah and Gigan from their home world in the Hunter Nebula. The alien monsters begin laying waste to Tokyo, but finally Godzilla and his sidekick Anguiras arrive to fight. Godzilla had apparently become lazy and neglected his normal training regimen because he is far from all-powerful when the melee begins. Not only is he abused by Ghidorah and Gigan, but he walks right into an alien trap. Anguiras, who really has little offensive capabilities, gives a gritty performance, even taking on King Ghidorah monster-a-monster at one point. At points in this battle, though, it is anyone's fight.
The special effects here are not that special, but that's okay with me. Many of the scenes of destruction make obvious use of model cars, buildings, tanks with toy soldiers, etc.. Godzilla' costume does indeed look pretty ragged, barely holding up through the end of the fight.

4.0 out of 5 stars Godzilla vs gigan the stock footage begins 25 Aug 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Earth is in danger,and it's up to the jolly charcoal-grey monster (Godzilla) and Angilus to fight Gidora and Gigan. The dubbing is suprisingly good, and a very cool battle in an oil refinery. Mothra rodan and the green gargantua make a guest apperance in some of the stock footage (footage from other films). The dialoge in some bits is hilarious. I like this film becuse it's so strange. MAZER tanks do apear but are mostly seen in stock footage from war of the gargantuas. And Godzilla SPEAKS! in one seen. A must for monster movie collectors.

4.0 out of 5 stars I guess godzilla hasn't kept his mouth shut!!! 31 Oct 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
when i was a little boy in belgium i saw alot of godzilla films and they taped my imagination, one of my vivid memory's was a godzilla tower where it pounded godzilla into submition with it's lazer!!!
so when i saw this video was avbaible i seized my chance and bought it!
sure it isn't the best godzilla film, but it is very good. This godzilla film was by the director Jun fukada, to me it is assive he always has some blood, swearing and a very unusual theme song.
it comes with some interesting trailers before the film that are japenese. The only down fall is that by the third time you watch this movie, you'll get apit board of godzilla because the half an hour long trailers show you all the action. So you might get board.
If you enjoyed this godzilla film than see GODZILLA, king of the monsters and TERROR OF MECHA GODZILLA(, my favourate godzillla films).
