Godzilla's Revenge Reviews
Most of Godzilla's screen time is stock footage from previous movies and his son Minilla speaks with the leading child, Ichiro, like a Sesame Street muppet.
This movie is obviously targeted toward young kids and is more family friendly than many of Godzilla's other films. It is all about finding your courage and it uses Godzilla to symbolize it. It's true, you should always stand up to your enemies when you have to, but violence isn't always the answer.
That's kind of all I got.
It's a pretty terrible film and though it's fun to see Minilla have the crap beaten out of him, it's enjoyable for the fight scenes in case you have not seen films like "Ebirah, Horror from the Deep" and "King Kong vs Godzilla" as the fight scenes from that film are used. (And they are edited in pretty good too, the Night Time battle in Ebirah has been edited to look like day time in this one.)
The film literally extracts the fight scenes from Son of Godzilla and Godzilla vs the Sea Monster and uses it to fill 60& of the runtime (and it's only an hour and 9 minutes long overall), and the other 40% is a crappy storyline involving a kid called Ichiro. The use of stock footage makes the film to have an inconsistent visual threat, as Godzilla looks different in the two movies where the stock footage comes from, and looks different in the few new footage actually filmed for this shit. The new monster looks like shit and it's crap. From a movie that had a subtle postwar message, Godzilla's Revenge was spawn. The title itself doesn't make any sense, Godzilla doesn't avenge anything. THIS is the lowest point in the Godzilla franchise. To be fair, the stock-footage sequences are entertaining, and even the fight of Godzilla against the new monster (the ONLY new footage of Godzilla in this film) is kinda amusing, but at the end, it doesn't worth and doesn't leave an impression or emotion of any kind, except annoyance.
Even the little kid's story is shit. The message I got out of it is that violence makes a better life. But the real lesson is: AVOID GODZILLA'S REVENGE! It's the rock-bottom of the kaiju film industry and a total waste of time. I never thought I would say this, but I'll rather do my Math class homework. I'll rather do that.
