Editorial Reviews

Ichiro is a latch-key kid in the late 1960s Japan, a country drowning in urban blight and big, nasty bullies. He escapes his dreary life by dreaming of Monster Island, a fantasy world where Godzilla rules and Ichiro is befriended by Godzill'a son, Minilla, who's experiencing his own troubles with a bull monster, Gabara. When Ichiro is kidnapped by crooks, the lessons learned from his monster pals help him stand up for himself and fight back.

4.0 out of 5 stars My pal Godzilla July 8, 2008
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A guilty pleasure for me. June 24, 2008
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars haha, i love this movie June 21, 2008
Format:DVD
i remember waiting for the godzilla marathons and recording them all on vhs. when this one came out i was dissapointed but thought it was so campy and funny.
i just watched the japanese version for the first time and i may prefer the funny voice of the american version.
i had the classic media version but this new one looks better.

p.s did japanese kids really wear those shorts? damn thats like underwear haha.

4.0 out of 5 stars TOTALLY UNIQUE FOR A GODZILLA FILM! March 6, 2014
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars nice presentation of a weak Godzilla film
This might be Godzilla's weakest film. It's very short (1 hour and 10 minutes), it's all a child's dream and it's mostly stock footage from other Godzilla movies. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Godzilla starter film for kids -- not bad for adults either!
Also known as "Godzilla's Revenge", this film (made with kids in mind) covers the subject of bullying and is not so scary or gory as to frighten the little ones. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars AKA: Godzilla's Revenge
Maybe an enjoyable one for young kids, but not for older viewers. It was very cheesy, and most of the story takes place in a little boy's imagination. Read more

Godzilla does not put up with bullying either. It is a very short movie to watch but a good one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh, it's not enjoyable!
Save your money. Just save it. This film is for children. Think Power Rangers not Godzilla. Stock footage from the other films and a plot about bullying.
