Godzilla vs Megaguirus
Do you love the jolly green giant lizard known as
Godzilla? Well, I do and was stoked to review this title. As with all
Godzilla movies you have to take a bit of a tongue in cheek approach to
the whole thing with hokey special effects and overly dramatic
storyline. But, those are the reasons that I love the movies!
Basically with the reappearance of Godzilla, elite
Japanese scientists have developed a man made black hole to destroy him
but after a test on insects goes up the creek, the insects mutate into
Meganula and the monster mash begins! The queen of the monsters is one
to be reckoned with and her name is Megaguirus!
I really loved the movie, it had all the over the top
elements that I like in these sort of movies. There is such a sense of
impending drama that really suits the mood.
Something that the casual observer would not get is
that this is not part of the proper Godzilla storyline. Since itís
inception in 1954 with the first Godzilla there have been stages in the
progression of Godzilla. This is part of the alternate reality series
and you can tell that theyíve taken advantage of this fact to have a bit
of fun with it all.
The transfer is fairly decent with a few very little
glitches and the audio is good. The disc is pretty light on in the
extras department with only trailers for the movie and other Eastern Eye
I still recommend this disc if you are a fan of this
sort of movie, I certainly am. From itís corny effects to the overblown
dramatisation through to shoddy special effects, itís what makes the big
G so special. Give it a shot.
