When Gorgo attacks the bathysphere, it roars at it. Underwater. If the monster actually tried to roar underwater, a torrent of bubbles would come out of its mouth, but no clear roaring sound. See more »
Picadilly. The heart of London. Words can't describe it. There's been nothing like it, not even the worst of the Blitz! This section is complete shambles. People running, mad with fear.

The special effects that were made specifically for this film are pretty impressive (I read somewhere that the man responsible for them also worked - along with several other people - on the effects of "2001"), but there is WAY too much stock footage here, and whoever color-processed the film should have been fired early on. The monsters display far more personality than the bored, stiff actors, and the director has a bad habit of cutting away from many sequences in midstream. (**)
