For some reason, most non-Godzilla giant monster films are looked down upon by IMDB reviewers. Gorgo, the "English Godzilla", tears apart London in this film that is just as entertaining, and perhaps even more so, than the original Godzilla. Both the infant and adult Gorgo's look fantastic, and the human actors, while somewhat bland, aren't terrible and don't detract much from the movie. Also factor in that it's infinitely more interesting when the monuments destroyed are all recognizable, and it's strange to see why this film, especially among sci-fi/monster film fans, isn't more appreciated. Plus, you gotta dig those crazy prehistoric fish (the only part of the film that doesn't really make sense)!
