As absurd as its title, and by those standards it's a hilarious success.

The dark grimness of GMK simply isn't enough in itself to keep the movie propped up.

It is for desperate fans only and is pretty bad even by the loose standards of the genre. It concerns a little boy learning about bravery by dreaming about Godzilla and Godzilla's baby. Godzilla's baby also talks to the boy, who then foils the plans of tw

Audience Reviews for Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah - Giant Monsters All-Out Attack

It was only a matter of time till the filmmakers would make another massive monster film in the series and this is the result. This is a confident picture that really gives monster film fans what they want in an action packed thrill ride of a terrifying monster picture. This is a well executed movie that is a return to form in a way. Fans will be delighted at what they see. The film definitely brings old school elements and makes Godzilla a force to be reckoned with, which is a big plus for the genre fans who love these films. I really enjoyed the film and thought it was a terrific little flick. The film definitely delivers something ridiculous fun and it is worth watching if you want an effective monster film that delivers. I thought the plot was pretty good and well developed. The direction is good and effective and overall the film works well in being a memorable monster film that you soon won't forget. The action is good and it is worth seeing if you love the genre. The film is never dull and tiresome and it will keep you entertained from start to finish. Although it never is a great movie, this one stands out as mindless entertainment. This Godzilla film is good and this is a chaotic picture that is sure to please genre fans. The thrills of the action is what makes it worth

Godzilla is a horrible little bastard in this movie. He is truly badass. For once, he has no redemption, to the point that previous alien controlled villains are now guardians of the earth. This film grabs the human element by taking a father and daughter as an army captain and a TV reporter. The effects here are just fantastic. All the puppets, suits, CGI looks great, and we get more Godzilla/Human interaction than ever. I loved the shot where Godzilla arrives and throws a boat into the air, only for it to fall straight down onto the camera again. We get some exceptional long takes of cityscapes. It's fascinating to see so many monsters beat each other in what looks like a real city. These Godzilla movies also have the confidence to just let it play out rather than making me sick with constant edits. With a subtitle of Giant Monsters All Out Attack, you know this is gonna be good. Just a shame that Mothra and Ghidorah were slightly out of character.

The first film since Godzilla vs Mothra to portray Godzilla as truly evil. Directed by Shusuke Kaneko, the man who revitalized the giant-turtle-monster Gamera series in the '90s, and reminds the audience what Godzilla is....a monster.

Completely negating every single G-movie after the original 1954 version, the big guy is met with "guardian monsters" who are to protect the earth. Growing up watching Godzilla films at the drive-in and cheering along with other kids who were hanging out by the loudspeaker near the concession stand, I was glad to see him return in this film as pissed off as I've ever seen him. White on white eyes and an evil grin looking better than ever before. He's so bad, they've even made King Ghidorah a good guy. Keep an eye out for the Motsura twins who are on screen for only a few seconds.
