Koji Kobayashi, a spotter for a Japanese fishing fleet crash lands his plane on a barren island. His best friend, Shoichi Tsukioka, manages to find him and lands his plane next to his so he can be rescued. The two pilots are shocked when they see two giant monsters waging war before falling into the ocean. The two pilots race back to Japan to inform the government what they saw. Soon the world comes to the realization, that a monster closely related to the original Godzilla is on the loose as well as a new monster named Angilas. Soon, the two monsters arrive in Osaka where they resume their battle. Will the two monsters destroy Osaka before they ultimately destroy each other? Written by

When the U.S. release was being developed as "The Volcano Monsters," Toho shipped the Gigantis (Godzilla) and Angurus suits to the Howard A. Anderson Company who would be shooting the additional special effects inserts. When the partnership producing the project broke up, and the project was canceled, the suits were presumably shipped back to Toho. See more »
In the final battle, the strings holding the plane models are visible in several instances. See more »
Let me just begin this review by saying that I never intended to like this movie. I only got the DVD to add to my Godzilla collection. I knew that it was old and some of the stuff in the movie looks cheesy and the gave Godzilla the name Gigantis, but I misjudged this movie.
Godzilla Raids Again is definitely one of the top contenders for my favorite Godzilla movie (right with Final Wars, Gojira and Godzilla 2000.) Seeing as this is one of Godzilla's rarer movies, I consider myself lucky that I saw it.
So, to sum up my review in 1 sentence, I guess I'll say this. This movie wasn't what I expected, in a good way.
