In the opening credits of the Japanese version, colorful lasers shoot from different directions, and pop up into strips within which each credit appears in white text. In the English versions, only the sound FX of the lasers are heard (standard text credits were used). See more »
I like this movie. Many people have reviled it, but I think it's probably one of the most underrated Godzilla movies around. I like the fact that Gigan and Angillus are in it, bringing two of my favorite monsters face to face. In this movie Godzilla talks, which is hilarious and adds to the camp value. I especially like the ending where Godzilla and Angillus team up on Ghidora and give him the biggest whipping of his life! Personally, i miss the older Godzilla films of the late 60s and the 70s, when he was a hero and not a brainless monster. But I'm sure many of you disagree with me. I just enjoy the campy feel these good old movies brought to the Godzilla saga. (With the exceptions of Godzillas Revenge and Godzilla vs. Megalon, but those are a different story!) I also liked the song at the end. Sure this movie had stock footage, but it was GOOD stock footage. Still, I wish they came up with original material for it. Oh well, I give this movie 4.5 out of 5 asterisks anyway. (Not for the acting but the fighting.)
