Trivia

Special effects director Eiji Tsuburaya wanted the fight scenes filmed in slow motion, but a camera technician accidentally undercranked the camera instead of overcranking it, resulting in the action appearing faster than reality. Tsuburaya liked the effect, and decided to use it in the film. See more »

Goofs

When Godzilla breathes radiation on Aguirus, it is clear as the sun that the footage of Anrguirus' head has simply been pasted over some footage of buildings being destroyed. He also moves his head around in a very unnatural (and quite goofy-looking) manner. See more »

Good...No, Awesome Godzilla Movie!
17 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

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.
