Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The relatively recent resurgence of interest in Japanese monster movies was bound to result in an "all-star" slugfest, and this one will have fans cheering. Almost 50 years after Japan's first attack by Godzilla, a nuclear submarine is destroyed at the bottom of the sea, and you-know-who's giant fin is seen in nearby waters. Later, when a young female reporter investigates reports of earthquakes with moving epicenters, she comes across three legendary monsters, Baragon, Mothra, and King Ghidorah, who have returned to protect Japan. When Godzilla reaches the island nation, these three monsters attack him while the plucky reporter records the momentous confrontation. The movie doesn't take itself seriously -- at one point somebody actually wonders aloud why Godzilla always attacks Japan -- and the action is plentiful. In the best Toho studio tradition, guys in rubber suits portray the monsters, and while some computer-generated animation enhances the imagery, the bulk of the thrills come from watching the titular lumbering behemoths trample miniature cityscapes underfoot. All-Out Attack breaks with tradition in one way: Godzilla isn't the sympathetic figure he was back in the '60s. He deliberately and maliciously kills people, gleefully incinerating fleeing civilians with lengthy blasts of his fiery breath. That mildly disturbing element notwithstanding, this old-fashioned monster rumble is great family fun.

    Must see for Godzilla fans

    This movie brought back the really brutal Godzilla from "Godzilla vs King Ghidorah" where there is no mercy for anyone. In my honest opinion, I was hoping the guardian monsters would be more a little bit more formidable than they were shown (after you watch the battle with Baragon you will see what I mean). Overall, the human story line about the reporter Yuki is decent and the battles between Godzilla vs guardian foes make this a movie worth owning by any godzilla fan.

    Long Live the King of the Monsters!

    This was one of the best Godzilla movies EVER!!! I was so surprised that Godzilla was so...Evil! Usually Godzilla was a good guy, but this time, Godzilla is the villian! He was so frightening! My favorite parts of the movie are the monster fights. They are so exiting! Even the human drama is cool. But those special effects, man they are out of this world!! If you love Godzilla movies, then I highly reccomend you watch it!

    One of the Best Ever

    Not only is it great special effects wise, but this is the first Godzilla I ever saw that really had a PLOT! Usually they build him around this weak plot that finds you saying "get on with the action". This time I found myself just as interested in the Human Drama as I was the action. Refreshing

    The best Godzilla movie in ages

    I saw this Zilla movie and I was blown away. The plot was very tight. The special effects were breathtaking for a Godzilla movie. The music was a welcomed departure from the original style. It sounded like a more action oriented techno industrial in some parts. The new monster designs were spectacular. The new Godzilla monster was very creepy. This new zilla is an unstoppable demon of destruction that is more aggresive then anything you have seen before in the movie series. If your are a Gojira fan CHECK THIS ONE OUT!!!!!
