A better-than-average giant lizard movie from Britain, this is a fairly well-made and exciting monster flick.
Sailors capture a huge, scaly sea monster and take it to London to be a tourist attraction. Unfortunately this 'monster' is only a baby and its MUCH BIGGER mother is on the way to save it!
Gorgo is an epic B picture thats a notch above all the rest on every level. The story is more creative than the normal giant monster movie, it doesn't have one of those clichéd conclusions either. The creature FX (while granted the monster is a big rubber suit) are far more impressive and ominous than most of its kind. There's lots of intense action to be had, especially in the destructive climax! The music score is nice as well.
The cast is better than average too. Leading men Bill Travers and William Sylvester do some solid performances, even young Vincent Winter isn't bad as a kid who wants to see the creature set free.
All the way Gorgo is a better quality monster movie than most of its breed. Genre fans will find it a worth-wild watch.
*** 1/2 out of ****
