Overview

Ishiro Honda, the Japanese monster auteur who directed the most memorable films in the Godzilla series, made this unusual science fiction tale. A wave of diamond heists in Tokyo have caused the police to crack down on local mobsters, who insist that they're innocent. While the lawmen don't believe them at first, they soon learn the robberies were in fact performed by no earthly criminals. Dogora is an alien creature who resembles a jellyfish and was mutated by radiation; the monster feeds on carbon, and as a consequence enjoys diamonds. But Dogora's appetite quickly grows until the creature becomes a threat to people and property all over Japan.

This is an interesting mix of an action movie and the Godzilla-like monster attacking Japan. Some diamonds mysteriously dissappear and are later discovered to be eaten by giant jellyfish.

Worth viewing for Japanese sci fi fans but a must for daikaiju fans. The plot is really only there to get to the monster parts and it is not too interesting, somewhat decentralizing dogora from his own film!-It seems the writers just didn't know how to build a plot around it, though in my opinion they should've tried harder. The monster scenes are wild, fantastic to watch. This isn't a slow reptilian beast crashing through the city, it's a floating, cloud obscured nightmare wrapping pale tentacles hundreds of feet long around a suspension bridge to collapse it! -that's to say nothing of how it actually, um, feeds. In summary, for giant monster fans, check this one if only for dogora itself, definitely one of the most unique daikaiju around!

This was a pretty rare kaiju film in the US until the release of this DVD. The title monster is quite interesting, and the score by Akira Ifukube is quite good too. The extras fall a bit short of Tokyo Shock's other releases, but are still good, including a trailer and image gallery.
