What a great movie!


Really really enjoy this one. You think it's about a giant winged serpent decapitating people, but it's really all about a crazy two-bit crook trying to blackmail the city. Fantastic. Wrote up a thing here: http://actionagogo.com/?p=9801

Seriously, was it really good-good, or was it one of those so-bad-it's-good kind of things?

I've seen five minutes here and there, and tried sitting down one time when it was on HBO many years ago to watch it, but I simply couldn't get into it. It seemed kind of odd for an American film company to make this.

The Japanese on the other hand ...

I think it's good-good. Some people might think differently, but it's funny and strange and a good time.

Enjoyed your review.

"If forced to come up with a gripe, I would say that it could have featured the monster more."

Definitely, I agree. If only they had more money or CGI.
