The Giant Behemoth
3 years ago via Flixster

The Giant Behemoth (1959) -- [3.5] -- Just six years after directing "The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms," director Eugene Lourie goes back to the well for another giant lizard movie, only this time the monster is radioactive. While production values are high for a low-budget British production (British B-movies put American B-movies to shame, really), the resulting film is a far less successful one. Willis O'Brien's stop-motion animation in the last half-hour are not as accomplished as Ray Harryhausen's work in "Fathoms". The action scenes are un-focused and the first forty minutes of scientific mumbo-jumbo is pretty intolerable.
