The salvage vessel captures Gorgo and takes it to London for display. Gorgo's mother, who is upset and significantly larger follows his trail to London leaving a wake of destruction in her path.

Scenes in which the baby Gorgo is driven through London were shot on a Sunday morning, which meant hardly anyone was in the streets. This was then explained away by a "TV announcer" who said that people were told to stay indoors. See more »

It's undoubtedly heading for Battersea Park, sir. That's the place to stop it.
How much voltage do you estimate would be required for electrocuting this animal?
Two million, three million volts? That's only a guess. There's not much precedent to go on, sir.
Quite. Get me Battersea Power Station!

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.
