Storyline

Some teenagers want to obtain a boat to find a brother. When they look around a boat without permission, they find a thief who takes them on his escape. They are caught in a storm and arrive at Letchi Island where natives of Infant Island have been enslaved by the terrorist organisation Red Bamboo. Red Bamboo runs a heavy water factory to process a juice which holds off the monster, Ebirah, which otherwise traps them on the island. The young men meet beautiful but tough Daiyo and wake up Godzilla to put an end to the Red Bamboo. Written by Scott Hutchins <scottandrewh@home.com>

After a more recent viewing of this movie, I rather liked it.
30 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

My first review of this movie was made when I had not seen this movie in at least ten years. I recently purchased it with the original Japanese voice track and I did enjoy it. Nothing to take seriously, but it is a Godzilla movie. Here we have a couple of guys that were in a dance contest helping this one guy by showing him a boat. The guy never tells them why, but it is to find his brother who was lost at sea. They find a boat and a person who seems to be the owner, although he seems a bit shady. He says they can sleep on the boat, but they must leave in the morning. The guy searching for his brother though sets them out to sea and our story really begins. They find an island, controlled by a terrorist organization known as the "red bamboo". They have been using natives of nearby infant island as slaves to produce a special liquid. You see, this island is protected by the sea monster Ebirah, a giant lobster. It attacks everything that comes into its vicinity including the smallest of boats. In fact, it wrecks the four men who were in search of the one guys brother. While on the island, they join up with a native girl that escapes the "red bamboo". They do some investigating and shockingly find an amazing discovery in the caves of the island...Godzilla asleep. Through a series of incidents involving almost getting captured our heroes must wake the giant beast up as a little distraction. And when Godzilla wakes up he is in a fighting mood. Ebirah, fighter planes, and even a giant bird who may or may not be Rodan all are gunning for Godzilla, but he is more than able to handle the challenge.
