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>

Trivia

Contrary to popular belief, the adult Mothra that appeared in this film is not the adult Mothra from Godzilla vs. Mothra (1964). It was the one metamorphosed from one of the larvae Mothras that appeared in Godzilla vs. Mothra (1964) and Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964). See more »

Fun in the South Seas!
1 March 2001 | by (Monster Island) – See all my reviews

This is a delightful change of pace adventure for Godzilla and company. While definately not on the cosmic scale of the previous adventures (GHIDRAH, MONSTER ZERO) it has a lot of human charm in it. It also has espionage elements popular at the time, blended quite nicely with the monster action. Ebirah is not the scariest Godzilla opponent, or even the toughest, but looks great. Mothra makes an appearance at the end, saving the heroes. Originally supposed to be a King Kong movie, Godzilla was used when Toho failed to secure the rights at the time.
