Ishiro Honda directed this Japanese monster film that sees a giant reptilian monster emerge from a lake, having been re-awakened by an undersea earthquake(or some such thing!) It was a local legend to the primitive people who live nearby, but the creature(called Varan) causes havoc before it decides to attack Japan. The military and scientists unite to defeat this creature any way they can. Obvious copy of Godzilla isn't bad, but is just too unoriginal and unremarkable to be at all memorable. Best viewed in the original Japanese language version, which is on the DVD, rather than the re-edited American version, which is seldom seen now.
