We prayed for a miracle. Maybe our prayers have been answered. A great city, overwhelmed, exhausted, lies helpless under the immeasurable power and ferocity of this towering apparition from before the dawn of history. Yet, as disdaining the pygmies under her feet, she turns back! Turns with her young, leaving the prostrate city, leaving the haunts of man, and leaving man himself to ponder the proud boast that he alone is lord of all creation.

This film is came out seven years after the debut of the "Big G" and it is quite a surprise. This is a great story, and the ending is definitely a twist on what usually happens in most giant monster films. This film could definitely be seen as a parable on the consequences of greed. This film is definitely a cult classic.
