I've watched "Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster" twice today- once with the Mystery Science Theater 3000 crew ripping it apart in a veru good but not great episode (the only great bit being the 'Godzilla bop' skit, one of the best skits in the show's early years), and the second time in all its unedited, pure horror. While there's no denying there's a lot of crap bits in even the better Godzilla films, there's no excuse for this gigantic mess known as "Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster". It's terrible, simple as.

Providing absolutely nothing of interest in the entirety of its running time, "Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster" is one of those films where you wonder why they bothered. Of course, with this particular effort the answer is 'money' but you really do wonder if they couldn't have come up with a slightly more enjoyable plot, slightly better characters, and a decent way to get the (poorly-realized) monsters together. Moreover, the once-interesting Mothra-summoning scenes drag on and on and on and on...

It's boring. There's just nothing else to say about it, and there's maybe about 10 minutes of it that are actually interesting and worth watching. Settle for the MST3k version, it's got good riffs and Crow finally says what all of us have been thinking about the two twin girls, at least in close-up.

Boring, boring, boring. Poorly-paced, poorly-made, and with truly embarrassing special effects, "Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster" is a disaster.
