The effectiveness of the military.

I have to say, while I have seen a good number of Kaiju films in my life, I cannot think of any of them from Japan where the military was more effective than they are in War of the Gargantuas.

Were ther any other Toho films where a monster got it's butt kicked as much as Gaira did in this film?

I mean, if the Brown Gargantua (Sanda) had not shown up, they would have killed him.


It doesn't make the monster look as tough as the ones in other films, but it was nice to see conventional weaponry actually prove effective against the monsters for a change.
