2.0 out of 5 stars Another bad day for Godzilla 11 May 2012
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
As the audio commentary on Classic Media's Region 1 DVD informs us, All Monsters Attack aka Godzilla's Revenge is the subject of much debate among Godzilla fans as to whether it's the worst or merely the second worst film in the series. While it's not quite as bad as Godzilla vs. Megalon, in which the big feller is reduced to a last reel cameo, there's little enough to recommend here. There's certainly little new for diehard fans, with the majority of the fight scenes simply stock footage from Son of Godzilla and Godzilla vs Ebirah (even if you haven't seen them, the difference in Godzilla suits is striking). Worse, this is literally kid's stuff, with the framing device showing a bullied daydreaming latchkey kid learning life-lessons from a talking Minilla/Minya, the adopted son of Godzilla, on Monster Island who has to face a bully of his own in the form of Gabara, a monster with an uncanny resemblance to one of Top Cat's sidekicks. Godzilla's big on tough love - when Minilla runs to him for protection, he not only pushes him back to the bully but even knees him in the groin to hasten him on his way. Meanwhile, back in the real world, in a plot development that makes Home Alone look like neo-realism, the kid is kidnapped by a pair of incompetent payroll thieves and likewise has to learn how to fight his own battles. While this may seem like a very short (69 minutes) cut-and-paste job to the cynical, it's really a film with a message for the youth of the day: stand up for yourself and you too can become one of the bullies instead of the bullied, with our young hero happily ending the movie taking over the bully's gang and setting out on his first steps of a reign of terror.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected - Nice release 3 Jun 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Godzillas Revenge" is now the only one, never released here in Germany. That's why I had to buy this american version to complete all 28. As you can read on the cover, it was a turning point. Toho decided to make it a movie for children. They used stock footage material from other Godzilla Movies. That's why this one is disliked by many people...and reason, of course, not to be shown in german movie theatres. People seem to forget the horrible "Godzilla vs. Megalon", which really is the worst Godzilla-movie ever. "Godzillas Revenge", or better "All Monsters Attack", is in fact a nice flick for kids and has a childish but instructive story. So lets accept, that there are some genres among the movies. We have Science-Fiction, Horror, Action, and detective story...so this one is for the children. This does not make it a bad movie.

To the DVD-release: Classic Media did a wonderful job. The case is designed with respect for this old classic and shows the original poster. There are two versions on one disc. And this makes me want to have them all, because in germany, it is hard to find uncut or original versions of these films. A good buy for Kaiju-Fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars My pal Godzilla 8 July 2008
By Zack Davisson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
You are probably not going to find a lot of fans who would choose "All Monsters Attack" as their favorite Godzilla flick. The complaints against it are many: Over-use of stock footage, a bizarre plotline involving Godzilla and the other monsters only existing in some sort of dream realm, an overly kid-friendly approach, problems of scale involving the humans and the monsters, etc.

And all of that is true. This isn't your standard Godzilla. This is your "after school special" Godzilla, complete with a helpful message for the youth of Japan about how to stand up to bullies and a kid-sized Minira who can speak English and be your monster pal. Director Honda Ishiro, a name that should be familiar to any G-fan, was interested in using his creations for more than just entertainment, and wanted to help kids who were being bullied, a serious social problem that still affects Japan today. "All Monsters Attack" is a unique offering in the Godzilla series, and that alone makes it worth seeing. And yes, it is cheesy, but its still fun.

The story begins with Ichiro, a poor latchkey kid who suffers from bullying at school. His only escape is in his imagination, where he finds himself on Monster Island, bonding with Godzilla's son Minira, who is being bullied by the monster Gabara. Minira tries to stand up to the bully, and helpful papa monster takes a tough love approach, refusing to step in and save the little guy but insisting that he stand up for himself. Ichiro learns that it is important to defend himself against bullies, so when he finds himself kidnapped by gangsters he has the confidence he needs to take action, then dish a little out to the kids that bully him as well.

Classic Media has put together a top-notch package for this underappreciated flick, with both the original Japanese version as well as the dubbed US release. Aside from the language, there isn't much difference between the two versions so you can take your pick. Additional extras are a biography of creator and director Honda Ishiro, which is fascinating. I had no idea Honda was an Assistant Director on so many Kurosawa Akira flicks like Stray Dog and Kagemusha.

Anyone with little kids couldn't go wrong with bringing home "All Monsters Attack". It's a great introduction to the Godzilla series and just might make some future G-fans. As for me, I guess I still have some kid inside, because watching this was just like a time warp back to Sunday mornings and Monster Theater. Good times indeed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A guilty pleasure for me. 24 Jun 2008
By A. Alfonso - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Many fans declare as this the worst Godzilla film made but for me the worst is Godzilla vs. Megalon. The reason is because it uses more stock footage than the other Godzilla films up to that point (which they used very little) and that it was more childish and kiddish than the previous ones as well. But that was the main point! The film wasn't to be taken seriously like the original film but made for children so they can defend themselves from their own bullies and have their own dreams of Godzilla and his monster pals. One thing that is a highlight for this film is that the young actor who portrays Ichiro isn't as obnoxious as some children from the Gamera films (Gamera vs. Zigra comes to mind). To sum it up, it's a rather entertaining film to watch and is good to show your children if they have started an interest in Godzilla or kaiju films in general. It's supposed to be mindless fun and can be enjoyed as long as you remember that it's for children, not for adults. Oh, and the DVD is good too. We get the Classic Media usuals, trailer, biography, audio commentary, and the original Japanese version with optional subtitles.And the quality is near perfect as well. So this is a worthy disc to any fan's collection if they are interested and enjoy this film.

i had the classic media version but this new one looks better.

4.0 out of 5 stars TOTALLY UNIQUE FOR A GODZILLA FILM! 6 Mar 2014
By DR SHOCK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Often thought of as the very worst Godzilla film ' All Monsters Attack' known in the U.S. as Godzilla's Revenge is actually one of the more consistent of the entire series.

The film has a running bully plot through the entire film and even the contrived bank robber subplot makes sense in that the boy Ichiro has to stand up to them and then later his school boy tormenters.

Percentage wise this Godzilla film has more monsters and fight scenes than any other Godzilla film even though most of it is stock footage from earlier Godzilla films. At just under 70 minutes long this film is loaded with monster scenes taking up more than half of the film..... Is it silly? sure it is, but aren't most Godzilla films a little silly?

I am only familiar with the early Godzilla films (this being the last one I remember vividly) and the original film aside these films are all pretty silly. A talking baby Godzilla may sound ridiculous, but it is in the child's fantasy that it happens and it helps to propel the story.

The fact that Minilla (Baby Godzilla) helps him to stand up to his bullies is actually kind of brilliant for a kids movie. I also found it interesting in real life how we have gotten away from teaching our kids to be able to take care of themselves.

When I was growing up my parents both worked for a time and my mother had me come home from school for lunch, put my dishes in the sink, lock up the house and go back to school. I repeated this every day until she thought I could take care of myself on my own. I was 6 at the time and I never burnt our house down or hurt myself...I never even lost my house key. Today kids need to be monitored until they leave the nest it seems. No common sense and totally unprepared for the harshness of the real world.

In this film Ichiro is lonely because both of his parent have to work long hours to support the family, he is on his own and with only a friendly neighbor to look in on him from time to time the boy spends a lot of his time dreaming of Monster Island. So while this is certainly a unique Godzilla film, I find it inspired and very enjoyable, because if you're taking Godzilla films too seriously, you're not getting it at all.

The Classic Media DVD has both Japanese and U.S. version of the film and it looks quite good, nice clean picture and sound. There are some stills and short feature-ette on Ishiro Honda so over all I can't see how any Godzilla fan would pass on this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's pretty bad, but not as bad as I remember it being 21 Nov 2013
By Gordon M. Wagner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's moderately awful. Clearly a product of the early 70s. More of a kid's movie. With gangsters and monsters thrown in. If you're a completist, you'll want this, believe it or not. It's a LONG ways from Gojira and pretty much the bottom of the barrel. One wonders what Toho had in mind producing this movie. Not to be taken seriously and it does nothing to advance any of the monster backstories or adventures. If it was a horse it would have been destroyed. BUT since it's a Godzilla movie, they live forever, no matter how bad they may be! Take a deep breath and relax and enjoy the ride!
