They report at least two direct hits.
You've killed it?
It's disappeared beneath the sea. They have saturated the area with depth charges which no living thing could escape. It's certainly been killed.

Gorgo is the third of the monster on the loose movies to be directed by Eugene Lourie. It came two years after The Giant Behemoth and was the only monster movie to be directed by him to be made in colour.
This is an excellent movie with great special effects. This is the British version of Godzilla and the monsters look impressive, despite them being men in monster suits. The acting in this is quite good and there is an excellent music score too. This was made towards the end of the craze for giant monster movies.
This movie is a must for monster movie fans and I enjoyed it very much.
This is British monster movie action at its best. Enjoy!
Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
