Great
4 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

This movie has everything: Giant rubbery monsters slugging it out, cyborgs, and the gorillas from "Planet of the Apes". Angilas is my favorite monster and my favorite scene is where he fights Mechagodzilla. I like the battle scene at the end: the special effects are much better than almost any other Godzilla movie of the 70's, 60's or 50's. The music is also kickin': I thought that any moment the battling monsters would start slamdancing to it! I like this movie a lot and it should be noted as Angilas's last appearance.
