This film is significant that it was going to be the last Godzilla film made by Toho and it was also the last film to feature music composed by Akira Ifukube. Probably most significant is that Toho also announced that they would kill Godzilla in this film. I won't spoil what happened at the end, but it's pretty good. Although this wasn't actually the last Toho Godzilla film, there was another one four years later. In this film, there is a second monster who is overheating like a volcano and Godzilla must stop that monster before it goes nuclear and blows up Tokyo. The special effects are better than most Godzilla films, but you don't really want Peter Jackson, LOTR level of special effects in a Godzilla film. You really just want to see a guy in a rubber suit stomping little buildings in slow motion, and that's what this film delivers.
