Using footage from previous films, the story revolves around a boy who uses his imagination to take him to Monster Island so he can escape the pains of real life. Written by

A bullied schoolboy (Tomonori Yazaki) dreams of traveling to Monster Island, where he befriends Godzilla's son, who is also having bully troubles.
This film was specifically geared towards children, and that might explain its silliness. The main character (who is a walking fashion faux pas) is a young boy that is probably easier for children to relate to than adults. There is no message here about nuclear weapons (or anything else), there is simply a boy with a healthy imagination who comes across numerous cheesy monsters.
I have no idea who dubbed Godzilla's son, but it makes the movie even sillier than it already is. This film is apparently among the lowest rated of the Godzilla films, and I am not surprised. I thought it was fun and a joy to watch, but only because I made every effort not to think about it.
