Trivia

The filmmakers hoped to cash in on Dino De Laurentiis 1976 remake of King Kong (1976). That film turned out to be a bust, and "Ape" was an even bigger disaster. See more »

Goofs

In one of the first scenes, two characters driving through Seoul see the Korean World Trade Center, the "North Gate," and the president's mansion. The landmarks are several miles apart, in different parts of Seoul. Considering the short span of time and what appears to be a straight route, the characters wouldn't have time to see all three landmarks. See more »

Too hilarious for words!!!
22 February 1999 | by (On Monster Island) – See all my reviews

Were they (moviemakers of this cheese flick) serious when they make this Korean/American co-pro movie? Let's see, army stock footage from "Yongary" and other Korean Kaiju films(?),Toy boats and a rubber shark and many more larks are seen in this kaiju eiga. I was laughing so hard that I finally ran out of breath when the movie was over!
