This great Sci-Fi indie still looks and feels grand today. It's got the typical stalwart hero who's always got more on his mind than his beautiful girlfriend..the wacky scientists with the female names for their computers..those fun-stereotypical-(for the day) Mexican villagers..and that great movie title. I love the moody melodramatics in the beginning of the film, the fine CGIless special effects throughout and the almost Jaws-like what's -below-the -surface scenes in Mexico..all played out in glorious black and white..with a few color sequences as a bonus. This is a Giant movie with a most unusual giant that goes up against the Army and Air Force, where we get to see actual footage of those early aircraft of the day. Who cares if it's all unbelievable..that's what we all like about these films. The action has a nice pace to it...starts slow and menacing and builds to a big climactic battle...the dialog is rich in 50's metaphors..and has that nice innocent romance between the male/female leads. You can't help but go nuts about this flick.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
