In the year 1999 mankind has consolidated all of Earth's monsters to the Bonin islands, known as Monsterland. When all contact is lost with Monsterland the giants appear around the globe and lay waste to major cities in various countries. The alien Kilaaks take responsibility and vow to conquer Earth with the monster army. Capt. Yamabe spearheads the war against the Kilaaks and gains control of Earth's monsters for a climactic final battle on Mt. Fuji.

I was surprised at the 4.2 out of 5 rating.  I watched this movie a while ago and it didn't excite me as much as Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla, but I'm not even sure why.

GMAN2887 - This is such a classic! You know, I was 25 when I first saw this film? I'd not seen it due to a lack of media - and it was such a sore spot for me! However, I must say that it is a very fun and interesting film - especially the manner in which it takes place with such frenetic energy! :)

Destroy All Monsters seems like the kind of movie people seem to tell you is one of the best, but never explain why.


The plot is pretty much a more widescale version of Monster Zero with Aliens taking over all the monsters rather than just two. The monster island idea is great, but outside the opening not much is done with it. Would have been nice to see it more fleshed out. The characters are ok at best, they just go through the motions it seems, never really grabbing me outside of some scenes.


Even the final fight, although entertaining wasn't that great. Despite the huge roster the fight essentially became another 3v1 vs Ghidorah, something we've seen before, with Anguirus replacing Rodan and Gorosaurus replacing Mothra. The other monsters do a little but nothing noteworthy during the fight. I know the wirework restricted a lot of the monsters from participating but still, urks me just a little that after being in every fight with Ghidorah prior and having basically the same rivalry with him Godzilla did at this point Rodan didn't do anything in the final fight. The fight the kills Ghidorah and Rodan doesn't do anything instead Gorosaurus is in the fight...

Anyway it has its moments and some iconic scenes but outside that I don't find it to be as strong as a lot of people seem to insist it is.
