The movie became something of a cult film in Soviet Russia where it was the only Japanese monster movie to see a release before the 1990s. Interestingly, it wasn't the prehistoric creatures that caught the attention of audiences, but the depiction of a foreign capitalist country with its modern advancements. See more »
Well, I originally saw this on TV years ago. Its a pretty cool movie that most people are not too kind to. Sure the dinosaurs effects are cheesy, there are plotholes, etc., but the movie is pretty well made otherwise. Its got some good creepy moments, some good atmosphere, some stylized touches, a little sex appeal, and a really cool finale. Also, a really cool sound track. All in all, a really fun, good piece of Japanese Schlock cinema. Its too bad there is not a original Japanese version availible.
