    You forgot to mention this was the only Godzilla movie to receive the MST3K treatment, but that’s okay because I’m sure everybody knows about MST3K by now!

    Actually The Godzilla Vs. The Sea Monster movie was done by MST3K too, I think.

    I can’t take Jet Jauguar seriously, he looks redicous. But it’s nice to see Gigan at least.

    Wait a second. If Megalon is a giant bug, then the army could’ve use a huge can of Raid. i know the joke was stupid.

    Jet Jaguar…what a friggin’ load of shit!
    Gigan should’ve murdered Jaguar, his buzzsaw could just cut straight through him. I wish Ghidorah was in this to rip Jaguar’s head off and shove it up his arsehole!!! That’s how much Jet Jaguar sucks!

    My favorite Mystery Science Theater 3000 movie ever. This film is hilariously bad.

    Actually, Godzilla (at his tallest: 100 m, though the US dub of the original says 400 ft, which is about 120 m) is not even a quarter of the size of the Empire State Building (443 m), let alone the twin towers (526 m). And comparing back to King Kong, G-zilla would def. kick Kong’s ass… at Godzilla’s shortest (50 m) he’s almost 3 times taller than Kong’s tallest of 60 ft.

    Good review btw.

    Hey James! Speaking of Ultraman, You should watch that video on Youtube “Ultraman Vs Jiras” Jiras is Godzilla.

    How about the part where the go to a model store and get a model plane just to throw at a guy when he opens the door. Why didnt they just use a rock? Oh and dont forget the really cool car chase.

    O.K. Here goes…. This was one of my favorite Godzilla movies. My son is 19 now, but back in the mid 90’s, I would rent Godzilla tapes, and him, and I would sit around, and watch these things all day! Good times… (He’s the one who turned me on to this site.)

    We must’ve watched this thing 20 times, until my crummy VCR ate the tape, and I returned it to the store. I wasn’t worried. Nobody else was renting this crap?

    I used to tell my son, he was the kid in the movie, and he didn’t remember, because he was to little. He’s not even Asian!!

    He’d get pissed, at me, we’d wrestle, you know the routine. I thought he knew I was pulling his leg. Nope. He just told me recently, he was convinced he was in that movie, and told several of his friends in Elementary school. Of course they believed him, and a Legend was born. Is this how Urban Legends come about? Geez! I was just screwing with my kid! I actually thought Jet Jaguar was kinda cool, and wished he would show up in another flick.

    He still get’s mad when I mention “Baby Rider”, but I don’t mention it often, because he’s about 6′ 4″ now. Yikes!!

    Of the Godzilla films in the first series this and Godzilla’s Revenge are my least favorite and most lame. This series would close out rather strong as the next two films would feature MechaGodzilla and be much darker in tone.

    If you like Godzilla, you’ll like Ultraman. You can buy the first series for cheap on amazon. It’s only $5, what’ll you lose?

    I know a lot of people hound on this movie, but personally it’s one of my all time favorites. Jet Jaguar was inspired by the old heroes of those days and it shows in his design. Personally, I wish he was in more movies that just the one, there’s a lot of untapped potential there. 🙂

    EPIC LEG DROP! Not to mention he threw up the ”peace” sign before his first leg drop.

    OK, just wanted to comment on the movie poster showing the twin towers that is talked about in the review. If you remember, King Kong 1976 came out the same year as this movie came out in America, so the guys that were in charge of advertising this movie for the American release decided to take advantage of the new King Kong bandwagon. If you look at the original Japanese poster from 1973, there is no depiction of any buildings. James maybe you already knew this, but I thought I would put my 2 cents in anyway…..

    I’m showing these videos to my 7 years old son. He’s loving them! Thank you, dear James.

    I remember that movie, was one of the first movies i see from Godzilla. But in Germany are no Jet Jaguar it was named King Kong. That`s bad or what you think?

  • December 16, 2013 at 3:16 pm

    Jet Jaguar looks so stupid

    Megalon is an awesome and underrated Godzilla villain. This movie may be cheesy, but man, that whole fight that starts with Megalon vs Jet Jaguar, then Gigan enters, then Godzilla enters and the 2 vs 2 monster brawl begins. It’s one of the best fight scenes of the entire series IMO. They actually look like they’re fighting. Sometimes I swear they just look like they’re dancing in front of each other. But, even though there are better ones out there, this is one of my personal favorites.

  • December 29, 2015 at 6:27 am

    Judging by Megalon’s size, it would be like if your neighbor released a pack of ‘rabid” tigers on you. And isn’t Jet Jaguar supposed to be King Kong in that suit, why is he so tiny???
