Godzilla vs. the Sea MonsterDirector: Jun Fukuda
The seventh film in Toho's Godzilla series (and the first without the direction of Inoshiro Honda), this colorful installment finds the natives of a volcanic island enslaved by the armies of an unnamed country claiming to be in control of a giant crustacean named Ebirah. A boatload of teens and a wanted criminal are washed ashore on the same island, where they encounter a large group of escaped slaves who hail from Mothra Island, home of another popular Toho monster. They pray to their moth-god to liberate them, oblivious to the fact that a certain green lizard is trapped beneath their cavern hideout. The teens soon discover this and release Godzilla from the rock with a well-placed lightning rod. Released and re-energized, Godzilla soon goes head-to-head with Ebirah, while Mothra eventually flaps into action to free the captives. Silly and cartoonish despite some more menacing elements, this is nevertheless one of the more interesting chapters in the Godzilla pantheon.

Godzilla fans will love this movie. The effects are great and the movie is very exciting.
What makes this film great is the feel of it. It's the nostalgic type of Godzilla film that you would be watching on a Sunday afternoon on some public TV station with way too many commercials. There are many other reasons why I enjoy this film, one of which is the scene were Godzilla is being attacked by the "enemy" jet fighters which is LOL. Thanks for reading my review, I hope you have found it helpful.
Escape to an exotic locale, and enjoy the bright colors and upbeat music! One of the most enjoyable adventures of the Big G, Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster contains enough fun, intrigue and appealing visuals to make for a pleasant viewing. Join a group of teens searching for a missing brother, pitting their wits against the criminal Red Bamboo organization, and resurrecting Godzilla with lightning. Thrill as Ebirah's giant claw rends ships in two! In addition to Ebirah, the titular Sea Monster, Mothra makes a cameo.
