A sinister corporation loses control of a house cat infected with a genetically engineered virus. The death toll rises during the mutant feline's rampage and, eventually, it finds its way on board the yacht of a criminal kingpin.
A team of scientists working on a remote dig site find the buried body of an enormous monster, perfectly preserved even after 200 million years. As soon as the beast is uncovered, however, an alien spacecraft suddenly appears above them and brings the monster back to life! The creature immediately sets about levelling the surrounding urban landscape and shrugging off the best firepower the military can throw at it.

Weird but entertaining, but is there an 'OldGary' too?
DO NOT take this film seriously. Compared to this flick, even the poorer Gamera and Godzilla films are Citizen Kane when it comes to taking the film seriously.
Taken as face value as entertainment, kudos to the director for making a great popcorn cruncher.
Yes the dialogue is awkward at times- Yes the CGI doesn't quite look finished- Yes it's kinda odd a South Korean film has near only American actors- Yes the monster looks nothing like the original Youngary- But heck to all that, it's IS entertaining!
This movie falls firmly in the 'So bad it's good' category. The action scenes have a lot of hilarity going on, dialogue can be flat out hilarious, the plot, while executed a bit oddly, IS pretty original; and the monster designs aren't half bad.
I saw this as a kid and loved it for the unintentional humor as much as I did the big monster fight at the end. As for any parents who's monster movie loving kids might want to see this, this is a pretty safe film. Outside of one scene that could be a bit squeamish where (offscreen) a fossil tooth flies through a dig worker, I can't see anything in this film that would be bad for kids under 10.
If you want a film to kill time and to leave your brain at the door to have some fun, this film will for the job.
When it comes to Godzilla's numerous foreign relatives, Yonggary did pretty well for me.
