Only if you can appreciate the offbeat sense of wacky humor Roger Corman brings to life in this film will you truly appreciate it..this is in many ways a spoof of the monster on the loose and the spy film genres but at the same time it also seems to be laughing at itself. Notably Corman makes a cameo in which that's all he does--smiles and laughs at this movie's ridiculous lead character - a numbskull secret spy government agent.
Clearly this film was never meant to be taken as seriously as some seem to take it. The biggest flaw with it however is it's too slow-moving...it takes forever before we get any kind of resolution. The highly entertaining rampage of the Monster at the end does make up for somewhat for the slow opening half. But once again I recommend this only for Corman staunchest fans.
