1 & 2 which are REGION FREE, these Blu-Ray discs are LOCKED REGION 'A' so you will need a Multi Region Blu-Ray Player.
As I said this is a much darker film. You see alot of people killed (quite graphically in some cases) by the Hedorah which makes it all the more frightening. There is an anti pollution message in the film (Hedorah is made from pollution) and the shots of various polluted areas are pritty disturbing. Made over two decades before the current debate over global warming this is a thought provoking film rather than just a "men in rubber suits" slug fest. For those fans who enjoy a good fight (let's face it the fights are one of the best things in a Godzilla film) there are still plenty of fight scenes between Godzilla and the Hedorah.
So in my opinion this is one of the best Godzilla films - I wish the Hedorah had made a return appearance. This dvd is region 1 coded so you will need a player that is compatable to watch this dvd. Thank you for reading my review.
We're in the goggle-eyed, round featured, saviour of Japan Godzilla period which means it features a cute kid (though personally I prefer cute kids roasted by Godzilla's breath) with a psychic link to Big G. We have lots of cool young adult kids, dancing to excruciating pop music containing a soupcon of psychedelia, all of whom wear the most hideous movie-cool-kids clothing -thankfully most of them get it from Hedorah while holding a protest on Mount Fuji. We've got cartoon inserts illustrating various parts of the movie -pollution, Hedorah's evolution, etc. And, of course, the message that pollution is bad is not just lain on with a trowel, it is dumped on us viewers with a giant JCB. Pollution is not cool, man.
We also get the wonderful sight and one, as far as I'm aware, never repeated in any other Godilla movie, of Godzilla trying to bend double and then blasting into the air, flying backwards clutching his legs, propelled by his radiation breath. If that doesn't have you collapsing with laughter, I don't know what will.
Hedorah or, as it was known in the UK on its cinema release where I originally saw it, The Smog Monster (though Sludge Monster would be more accurate) is a wonderful creation. See the giant tadpole version smash ships! See the land stage inhaling smoke from a dozen factory chimneys at once -way to get high, man! See the flying version dissolve people and metal with its sulphuric acid wind! See Hedorah drown Godzilla in a mass of poison sludge!
I love this movie. For all the wrong reasons.
I have loved this film for as many years as I have been terrified of it.
Godzilla is back and ready to fight one of his strongest enemies of all time. Hedorah, the disgusting smog monster that feasts on toxic industrial smoke and the filth that inhabits the seas. Hedorah grows and nearly destroys Japan as well as Godzilla. Can Godzilla destroy him before it's too late?
This is one Godzilla film that packs a large message to all the fans, especially in the iconic song "Save the Earth" which roughly translates to asking where the islands and flowers have gone then moves to say how the sea and are are filled with poisonous chemicals and we want the sun to return (all due to the pollution) in some ways it is very graphic yet queer at the same time.
I don't recommend this for small children as I watched when I was a child and have been frightened ever since. For any fan this is an amazing thing to add to your collection and watch whenever you fancy turning back time to the crazy 70s.
My mum ordered this for me for Christmas from Supermart USA, it arrived in more than enough time for me (11-14 days is normal) and was packaged very safely. The price is excellent. I myself have used this seller before and am currently using now with no problems at all so I highly recommend if you see they have it in stock, order it from there.
