Storyline

Ichiro is a highly imaginative, but lonely, boy growing up in urban Tokyo. Every day he comes home to the empty apartment he shares with his railroad worker father and his restaurant hostess mother. His only friends are a toy maker name Shinpei Inami and a little girl named Sachicko. The only other kids that are around is a gang of kids led by a bully named Gabara. To escape his loneliness, Ichiro imagines that he is on Monster Island where he befriends Minya, the son of Godzilla. It is through his daydreams that he watches Godzilla and Minya fight other monsters, including one also named Gabara who is just as bad a bully as the one that is tormenting Ichiro. It is through these daydreams that he learns that it is okay to fight back and face his fears. These lessons also help him to outwit a couple of bumbling bank robbers as well as finally have the guts to stand up to Gabara and his gang. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Gojira-Minira-Gabara: Oru kaijû daishingeki (1969)
26 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A disgrace to the franchise. Sure it's meant for kids, but I just can't fathom how awful it is. First of all, it's not a Godzilla movie. Not really, as all the Godzilla sections take place in the dreams of a young boy. The real story is about a bullied boy and his coincidental run in with some bank robbers. He learns some valuable life lessons from Godzilla's son on Monster Island every time he sleeps. In the boy's dreams, Minilla is able to talk and change size. A number of fights are stock footage reused from previous films. An obvious budget cut after the expensive Destroy All Monsters. The film goes on and it's kind of fun in a way, but in the end, after the boy has learned a valuable lesson, the final scene has him doing what the bullies dared him to do in the beginning. This ends in a prank that was dangerous and disrespectful. As he runs away the boy sees his (mostly absent) father, whom agrees to stall the man now chasing him. What kind of a message is this? Screw you, you little turd! Thinking your the cats balls because you went up against some criminals. I hope the real Godzilla stamps on your head.
