Along with "Godzilla vs. Megalon" and the 1998 American film, "Godzilla's Revenge" is widely considered one of, if not the worst of all the Godzilla movies by Godzilla fans. However, it doesn't really deserve the amount of bile it gets.

Yes, this movie amounts to a compilation reel held together by a cheesy afterschool special, but setting that aside, Godzilla's Revenge is actually rather solid. The characters are likable and relatable, and there's an actual coherant story arc and character development. This is more than can be said for the majority of Godzilla movies. The fights between Godzilla, Minilla and Gabara are fun and energetic, and the recycled footage is often set up in a way that it's more entertaining than the source material; for instance, the Godzilla vs. Kumonga scene borrowed from "Son of Godzilla" doesn't drag out for as long. Although cloyingly juvenile, the setting is grim and depressing, and it ends on a pretty bleak note with a really screwed up "violence solves everything!" moral.

Still, Godzilla's Revenge is campy, fun and definitely underrated. If you're a Godzilla fan who appreciates the sillier entries in the franchise, I highly reccomend it.

My pal Godzilla July 8 2008
By Zack Davisson - Published on Amazon.com
You are probably not going to find a lot of fans who would choose "All Monsters Attack" as their favorite Godzilla flick. The complaints against it are many: Over-use of stock footage, a bizarre plotline involving Godzilla and the other monsters only existing in some sort of dream realm, an overly kid-friendly approach, problems of scale involving the humans and the monsters, etc.

And all of that is true. This isn't your standard Godzilla. This is your "after school special" Godzilla, complete with a helpful message for the youth of Japan about how to stand up to bullies and a kid-sized Minira who can speak English and be your monster pal. Director Honda Ishiro, a name that should be familiar to any G-fan, was interested in using his creations for more than just entertainment, and wanted to help kids who were being bullied, a serious social problem that still affects Japan today. "All Monsters Attack" is a unique offering in the Godzilla series, and that alone makes it worth seeing. And yes, it is cheesy, but its still fun.

The story begins with Ichiro, a poor latchkey kid who suffers from bullying at school. His only escape is in his imagination, where he finds himself on Monster Island, bonding with Godzilla's son Minira, who is being bullied by the monster Gabara. Minira tries to stand up to the bully, and helpful papa monster takes a tough love approach, refusing to step in and save the little guy but insisting that he stand up for himself. Ichiro learns that it is important to defend himself against bullies, so when he finds himself kidnapped by gangsters he has the confidence he needs to take action, then dish a little out to the kids that bully him as well.

Classic Media has put together a top-notch package for this underappreciated flick, with both the original Japanese version as well as the dubbed US release. Aside from the language, there isn't much difference between the two versions so you can take your pick. Additional extras are a biography of creator and director Honda Ishiro, which is fascinating. I had no idea Honda was an Assistant Director on so many Kurosawa Akira flicks like Stray Dog and Kagemusha.

Anyone with little kids couldn't go wrong with bringing home "All Monsters Attack". It's a great introduction to the Godzilla series and just might make some future G-fans. As for me, I guess I still have some kid inside, because watching this was just like a time warp back to Sunday mornings and Monster Theater. Good times indeed.

A guilty pleasure for me. June 24 2008
By A. Alfonso - Published on Amazon.com
Many fans declare as this the worst Godzilla film made but for me the worst is Godzilla vs. Megalon. The reason is because it uses more stock footage than the other Godzilla films up to that point (which they used very little) and that it was more childish and kiddish than the previous ones as well. But that was the main point! The film wasn't to be taken seriously like the original film but made for children so they can defend themselves from their own bullies and have their own dreams of Godzilla and his monster pals. One thing that is a highlight for this film is that the young actor who portrays Ichiro isn't as obnoxious as some children from the Gamera films (Gamera vs. Zigra comes to mind). To sum it up, it's a rather entertaining film to watch and is good to show your children if they have started an interest in Godzilla or kaiju films in general. It's supposed to be mindless fun and can be enjoyed as long as you remember that it's for children, not for adults. Oh, and the DVD is good too. We get the Classic Media usuals, trailer, biography, audio commentary, and the original Japanese version with optional subtitles.And the quality is near perfect as well. So this is a worthy disc to any fan's collection if they are interested and enjoy this film.

i had the classic media version but this new one looks better.

TOTALLY UNIQUE FOR A GODZILLA FILM! March 6 2014
By DR SHOCK - Published on Amazon.com
Often thought of as the very worst Godzilla film ' All Monsters Attack' known in the U.S. as Godzilla's Revenge is actually one of the more consistent of the entire series.

The film has a running bully plot through the entire film and even the contrived bank robber subplot makes sense in that the boy Ichiro has to stand up to them and then later his school boy tormenters.

Percentage wise this Godzilla film has more monsters and fight scenes than any other Godzilla film even though most of it is stock footage from earlier Godzilla films. At just under 70 minutes long this film is loaded with monster scenes taking up more than half of the film..... Is it silly? sure it is, but aren't most Godzilla films a little silly?

I am only familiar with the early Godzilla films (this being the last one I remember vividly) and the original film aside these films are all pretty silly. A talking baby Godzilla may sound ridiculous, but it is in the child's fantasy that it happens and it helps to propel the story.

The fact that Minilla (Baby Godzilla) helps him to stand up to his bullies is actually kind of brilliant for a kids movie. I also found it interesting in real life how we have gotten away from teaching our kids to be able to take care of themselves.

When I was growing up my parents both worked for a time and my mother had me come home from school for lunch, put my dishes in the sink, lock up the house and go back to school. I repeated this every day until she thought I could take care of myself on my own. I was 6 at the time and I never burnt our house down or hurt myself...I never even lost my house key. Today kids need to be monitored until they leave the nest it seems. No common sense and totally unprepared for the harshness of the real world.

In this film Ichiro is lonely because both of his parent have to work long hours to support the family, he is on his own and with only a friendly neighbor to look in on him from time to time the boy spends a lot of his time dreaming of Monster Island. So while this is certainly a unique Godzilla film, I find it inspired and very enjoyable, because if you're taking Godzilla films too seriously, you're not getting it at all.

The Classic Media DVD has both Japanese and U.S. version of the film and it looks quite good, nice clean picture and sound. There are some stills and short feature-ette on Ishiro Honda so over all I can't see how any Godzilla fan would pass on this one.

ILHM Reviews: All Monsters Attack March 10 2013
By Carl Manes - Published on Amazon.com
With his parents constantly working, young Ichiro spends his time at home fantasizing that he lives on Monster Island with Godzilla and friends. His day dreaming is interrupted when a group of burglars try to kidnap the boy after a botched bank robbery, but Ichiro uses the strength and courage that he has learned from his monster friends to escape! ALL MONSTERS ATTACK is a unique entry in the Godzilla series, considering Godzilla doesn't even appear in the film outside of Ichiro's imagination. It speaks more towards the sense of loneliness and betrayal that many latchkey children experienced in Japan at the time, when both parents were required to work in order to make ends meet. The success of the Gamera series also weighed heavily on this production, which clearly caters to a younger audience since the giant monster appeal was in steady decline by the late 1960s. ALL MONSTERS ATTACK re-uses footage from previous films as well to cut costs and pad the run time, although it does include several fun new fight scenes between Godzilla and Gabara (named for a bully that picks on Ichiro), and even features a chase scene where Ichiro must escape from the Kamacuras. Many fans who shared in Ichiro's monster dreams as children continue to show a loving admiration for the film, even if it exists outside of the normal canon.
