this is a movie that makes you think. it's exciting, but it's also very mature. which means if you are a kid and think you are getting a traditional Japanese monster movie you will be disappointed.
however, if you are a little older and can appreciate the plot about nationalism, you should enjoy it.
and there are some awesome effects! Manda is not the best realized puppet, but it looks cool. the sub is just awesome and the destruction scenes are as well.
it's too bad the original A.I.P. Titan dub is now considered "lost" but there is a really nice DVD out of it with subs, and this is one movie that I enjoy either way. here are two trailers, one theatrical and one for television. enjoy!
