Mind-bogglingly awful
14 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

ATTACK OF THE SUPER MONSTERS turns out to be a hacked-together film version of an early '80s Japanese TV show that seeked to combine rubber-suited monster mayhem with then-burgeoning anime animation. The result is a mind-bogglingly awful concoction, made ludicrous by random decisions such as having the main villain, a T-Rex no less, talking and laughing like a playground bully.

Each original episode is 20 minutes long, so there are four of them collected here for this 80 minute movie. And the format is incredibly episodic - in each episode, a different threat attacks and is neutralised, with a final credo along the lines of "good work, but they'll be back". Needless to say, this becomes tiresome about halfway through these stitched-together episodes.

The essential plot involves some underground, super-intelligent dinosaurs rising to the service to wreak havoc on our cities, aided with some traditional, dodgy miniature effects work. But these creatures also have the ability to mind control earth's creatures, so that there are plagues of dogs, rats and bats along the way too. It's all very ludicrous, hardly aided by the (in my opinion) terrible animation and general aiming of the material at 3 year olds. Avoid it like the plague!
