Synopsis

Godzilla vs. Gigan
One of the cheapest entries in Toho's Godzilla franchise, this alternately noisy and talky entry finds yet another batch of goofy-looking insectoid aliens plotting to conquer humanity -- from their headquarters deep within a Godzilla theme park! -- using the double-team monster threat of Gigan (a metallic bird-creature with a handy table saw in his belly) and the three-headed Ghidorah. It is somehow apropos to the movie's comic-book premise that the nominal human "hero" is a washed-up cartoonist, who teams up with his equally-ineffectual pals (not counting his butt-kicking girlfriend). Eventually it is left to the Big G to square off against the extraterrestrial foes, with the occasional (but mainly inadequate) aid of Angilus for some tag-team wrestling action (which ranks among the silliest in Toho history). The paltry budget is also quite apparent this time out, as indicated by frequent use of recycled footage from previous monster films, particularly Destroy All Monsters. The film's only real highlight comes in the form of a plot twist which grants Godzilla his first speaking role. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi
