You have to be patient with this one because it really does improve. The beginning has a submarine encountering something powerful and this serves at getting our interest. Then we have a long period where everyone is trying to figure out what has happened and the usual non-believers that end up holding things. Everything is presented very matter of fact instead of being dramatic and this tends to give the film a very dry, almost unexciting feel in the middle. Fortunately, the octupus comes to San Francisco and all hell breaks loose as the giant monster rips a gap in the golden gate bridge, terrorizes a freight yard and a giant clock. The story is not as good as say Earth vs. the flying saucers or Twenty million miles to earth, but the special effects are fantastic. Harryhausen has the creature's tentacles move in a slow, very deliberate manner that tends to really add realism to the monster's attack. So put this one in then stop it after about fifty minutes, then make your popcorn and go sit back down and enjoy the fantastic finale.

Good Grade B '50s sci-fi flick. An atomic size octopus from the deepest realms of the Pacific threatens the world. Seeking adequate levels of food supply, not excluding humans, the creature attacks San Francisco. The real star of this movie is the razzle-dazzle special effects of Ray Harryhausen. The quality of the stop-motion animation exceeds the constraints of the B&W photography and the modest budget. The first part of the film tells of the mysterious ship sinking and other unexplained marine mayhem caused by the great sea beast. Navy Captain Pete Mathews (Kenneth Tobey) and two expert marine-biologists, John Carter (Donald Curtis) and Lesley Joyce (Faith Domergue), work around the clock tracking down clues to identify the source of the mysterious events at sea. The simple plot moves right along and doesn't waste time. As seems obligatory in many '50s sci-fi flicks, the heroes endure the "I'm telling you, there's a monster!" phase followed by the "Yeah, right!" response from the authorities. Happily, that particular cliche is kept to a minimum. Things really start to go snap, crackle, and pop as the monstrous octopus tries to pull itself up on the Golden Gate Bridge. And check out the giant eye that opens as the submarine approaches the submerged creature in the San Francisco harbor. This is solid Saturday afternoon at the movies fun for 12 year-olds of all ages. They really don't make them like this anymore.

Modern technology and super low 'Zon pricing combine to make this a welcome addition to your HARRYHAUSEN Chronicles. Yes, the modern technology is the remote with its 'fast forward'feature. You can plow through the interminable talking heads , all the while supplying your own dialog from all the times you saw it on commercial TV (and didn't we SCOUR the TV guides, hoping against hope, in those days?). My favorite shot has to be the poor people pulped by the Giantentacle as they foolishly try to flee along Battery Street! Remember Forry's homage to Ray from 'Famous Monsters of Filmland'-long about Issue #5? He'd recommended the cinemagician to a guy producing a monster flick who gulped, "He charges ten thousand dollars a tentacle!" No wonder "IT" had only five! So buy it already for ten QUID!

It pains me to say it but this movie stinks.
This movie has some good actors but their characters are constantly contradicting themselves or acting like jerks because of an asinine script.I understand that the script-writer was trying to get across the message that women should be treated as equals by making Kenneth Tobey a male chauvinist but she ended up falling for the jerk anyway!!I wasnt convinced that he had changed his ways just because of one line thrown in at the end of the picture.
The stop-motion is ok but the monster scenes are too few and far between and the octopus has no personality.Thats an odd thing in a Ray Harryhausen movie.
Unless your a Ray Harryhausen completest you dont need this movie in your collection.Buy 20Million Miles To Earth or The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms instead.

As mentioned in some of the other reviews, Ray Harryhausen's special effects are the real stars of the show. One of my favorite scenes is when the octopus pulls the ship under water. Determined, it tugged and tugged until enough water had flooded the freighter so that it would go under.
The final 20 minutes of the movie are done well and keep you on the edge of your seat as the octopus reaches out from the harbor looking for a quick meal. The people getting crushed under one of the tentacles is very convincing.
A classic sci-fi movie from the 1950s. I have seen and recorded a number of them, and this is among the best. Solid script that doesn't drag along, and great special effects.

IF YOU ARE A "B" FAN YOU WILL LOVE THIS ONE. IT HAS A LITTLE OF EVERY THING. KENNETH AND FAITH. A SELF ABSORBED PROF. AND OF COUSE OUR HERO "OSCER THE OCTOPUS." THERE IS SOME HISTORY, OCEANOGRAPHY, AND INTERPERSONEL MANOVERS.
OUR HERO IS DRIVEN FROM HIS DEP SEA HOME BY SOMETHING ATE. LOOKING FOR A FRESH FOOD SUPPLY HE GOES TO JAPAN(NOT HAPPY THERE), HE THEN WENT TO SIBERA. HE WASENT HAPPY THERE. SO HE HEADED FOR SAN FRANSISCO.(HE FOUND TOBEY SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN) THE REST IS HISTORY. HARRYHOUSEN WORKED OVERTIME ON THIS ONE(WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE IS HIS BEST THOUGH). THIS MOVIE BELONGS IN THE "B" HALL OF FAME
