The original Godzilla team of director Ishiro Honda, special-effects supervisor Eiji Tsuburaya, and composer Akira Ifukube reunited for this kaiju extravaganza, which features no fewer than eleven monsters.
Set in the remote future of 1999, when the people of Earth have achieved world peace by confining destructive creatures to Monsterland (until an alien race intervenes), DESTROY ALL MONSTERS mounts a thrilling display of innovative action sequences and memorable images that have made it a favorite for generations of viewers.
“That the special effects could have been more realistically concocted by a 12-year-old with a Super 8 camera only adds to the fun.” (Film4)
“This is effectively the end of the “golden age” of Godzilla movies (there wouldn’t be a truly great installment again until the 90s) but it’s a hell of a note to go out on.” (Escapist Magazine)
