Interesting Documentary tracking the big lug
1 March 2004 | by (Belfast, Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty good documentary focusing on the Japanese Godzilla. It contains interviews with such people as Director Jun Fukuda, the wide of the late Ishiro Honda and various people who basically don't add anything to the documentary such as Alex Cox. This documentary incorporates footage from rare shows like "Ultra Q" and films like "King Kong Escapes". I recorded this gem on its premiere showing in 1998 and I'm not sure if it has ever been repeated. I have watched the recording many times and it is still an interesting piece. All in all, this is a very good watch for all those interested in 'Zilla and should be looked out for in TV guides!
