Trivia:
Even though a new Godzilla costume was designed for this film, the one used for the attack on New York is the one that was used for Invasion of Astro-Monster (1965) and Godzilla Versus the Sea Monster (1966). Older Godzilla suits were used in certain "stunt" scenes (particularly in scenes with Godzilla in water) to keep the newer suits in shape.See more »

Revealing mistakes: When Godzilla attacks Tokyo and is being shelled, a building is hit and its side blown off. Windows warp, but remain in place, revealing they were plastic.See more »

Operation Monsterland (1968), 26 December 2011
Author: SnakesOnAnAfricanPlain from United Kingdom

Love Godzilla, love other monsters, love aliens, love destruction, love this movie.Destroy All Monsters takes us into the future where all monsters are now confined to Monster Island. All goes well until a race of alien metal people kidnap the monsters. Then, they brainwash them and set them to attack the major cities of the world. After so many Godzilla island adventures, it was so good to see the cities having their asses whooped. Great designs and model work left for a series of inventive attacks. By the end it all descends into a chaotic (and very unfair) fight. However, their were some genuine moments of panic. There was a moment between Anguilas and King Ghiddorah which left me almost covering my eyes. The sheer intensity, and likable monsters made it an engaging affair. We're left to deliberate how creatures instinctively know who their enemies are. This is a greatest hits for all fans of the genre.
