Seen this movie when it released with my buddy at a Saturday theater matinee. I maybe wrong but my first impression was the Sumo Gorilla version looks way better then what I seen at the theater all those years ago. My son (who's a big kaiju fan too) totally enjoyed this movie of rarely seen TOHO kaiju's. Thank you Sumo Gorilla!
This is excellent in picture and sound This is a good movie
It is great to see this more obscure Japanese sci-fi film in such good quality.
An amazing classic form Toho, recommended to every kaiju fan!!! Package arrived on time and plays great on widescreen, just like if i had the original dvd!!!
