    Synopsis


    Gorgo
    Gorgo is an attempt to make a Japanese-style "giant reptile" flick in an English setting. The story begins when underwater volcanic activity in the Irish Sea brings forth a 65-foot monster called Gorgo. Enterprising Joe (Bill Travers) and Sam (William Sylvester) capture the beast and transport it to London, where Gorgo is put on display as a seaside carnival attraction. This proves to be a major mistake when Gorgo's even larger mother lumbers to the surface in search of her cute li'l baby. In short order, London is trampled and trashed. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Gorgo deserves equal billing with Godzilla

      Just watched this movie from my collection again last night . The restoration done to the film really enhance and enrich the love that went into this film . The story is simplistic and the message that you shouldn't mess with Momma comes through . Nothing like that scene at the end of the film when huge baby Gorgo is rescued by Gargantuan Momma!

      This movie has been restored , so it's pretty lush and maybe better then when I first saw it . The DVD extras are fantastic and a great behind the scenes look at the history and all that what went into the making of the Movie, really enjoyed the Gorgo #1 comic !

      Oldie but goodie before the days of CG and we laughed more than once - especially watching the guy in the costumes knees move when he walked. If you like to trot down memory lane and get a good laugh this is for you.

      Special effects do not match today's CGI, but still is a fun movie.
