Sora no daikaijū Radon,
This review is from: Rodan [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I originally saw this movie at an all night Japanese monster movie feast at a local drive-in. Ecology at it's finest. Rodan has a pterodactyl feel. You can not worm your way out of this one. I do not like to compare this to movies like "Mothra" (1962), however the formula is similar. However there has always been a fond place in my heart for this movie. It is strange that it is one of the last to be put on the market.
The color is spectacular. And the appearance of the big bugs in the beginning set the action for the surprise that is to come later.
Unlike the USA `bug" movies, you can feel sorry for the creature. Since Tokyo is already destroyed, how about making it a game preserve?
