From an adult or older child's perspective this movie might deserve one star, but my four year old boys love it. They have watched it dozens of times since their Uncle Randy gave it to them during the holidays. For us that is the real test as to whether or not it is a good KIDS movie- do MY kids watch it and enjoy it? And yes, they do.
One of my boys is more sensitive than the other about "scary stuff" (he still doesn't want to watch Monsters Inc). He didn't find this movie to be too scary or intense, but it still keeps his interest, and it keeps the interest of my other son who isn't as sensitive. I think this was a good introduction into Godzilla movies for them (and remember, folks, this is a GODZILLA movie- it will have cheesy SE, dialogue, and plot. That's what makes them so great...).
There are several good messages in the movie. In the end Ichiro stands up to his bully just like Minya does. The bad guys get caught by the police. The fact that Ichiro doesn't get to spend much time with his parents is a good topic to discuss. It can help our boys develop empathy for other children who don't get to spend as much time with their mom and dad as they do. Hopefully it will teach them to have empathy for any child who doesn't "fit in" just like Ichiro didn't.
This movie might not be enjoyable for some older children and adults. I think Godzilla's Revenge is best suited for four to seven year olds; although, my husband and I can sit through it with the boys just fine.

If everyone would stop talking negitive about all the stock footage used in the film and sit down and think about the Godzilla movies that they took the footage from, it really isn't that bad. They took lots of the monster scenes from "Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster" and "Son of Godzilla" which were not the best of the Godzilla series and I really don't like to watch all the way though all that often. In this film, all the best battling scenes of those films are mixed together into one on this film without all the talking and boring storyline that graces the films they originated from. This story line is much more enjoyable, it stars a little boy who dreams of seeing Godzilla on his home island. He falls asleep and has a dream which consists of Godzilla battling a number of monsters and meets Godzilla's son and they quickly become friends and watch Godzilla battle though out the film. First Godzilla battles giant spiders (from "Son of Godzilla"), then he goes and fights a giant condor and then battles Ebirah: The Sea Monster (from "Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster"), which is one of Godzilla's best fight scenes of all his career of being in the movies. Then battles giant praying mantasis (from "Son"), and more. They did shoot some new monster footage for the film which features a new monster Gabera, who is a pretty dumb monster (both in look and intelligence) who bullies Godzilla's son Minya (and doesn't even do that well... always falling down and bumping his head). The old and new footage is edited together well and features a great opining score... a kind of jazzy sounding song with all the monster's roars appearing every so often which Toho released on a single back in 1969. If you buy the Simtar version of this film...Read more ›

I love this movie. It's extremely corny, most of the footage is stock, but it is so entertaining. I think the Godzilla gang really had fun making this one.Minilla is ridiculous,but remember, this is in a kid's dream sequence. His dreams WOULD be made up of stock footage and ridiculous characters, wouldn't they? I think this one is a great big thank you to all the kids who helped make Godzilla famous.

Since when were Godzilla movies supposed to be taken seriously? Don't get me wrong; I absolutely love them, but to read some of the reviews posted here one would think that this movie constitutes some atrocity against humanity, when, really, it's just a very lightweight, inoffensive piece of fluff.

Sure, it's aimed squarely at kids. Sure, it's cheap-looking; isn't that the fun of a classic Godzilla movie? Have your insulin ready for the sicky sweet kiddy matinee slant this movie has, then sit back and enjoy what amounts to a compilation of the best stock footage sequences from previous movies.

This was only the second Godzilla movie I ever saw as a kid; I was maybe 10 years old at the time, and thought that being able to shift moods from deadly serious dealings in the first one was a really neat idea (I was only 10 at the time, after all). I still enjoy the virtually nonstop parade of monster scrappin', even if some of it is re-cut from other movies. I never guessed such a thing way back when.

Groovy to me still is the very late-sixties Lounge sound of the main theme, "March of the Monsters". Outer-spacey electronic and burning with lava-hot sax, it cools off with jangling surfer guitar to create a piece of psychedelic pop trash ear candy at it's trippiest.

The other major reason to see this is for the only screen appearance of Gabara, a colorful, fierce-looking (for that time) and highly original beasty who I always have included as part of the offical monster lineup. Even if he is regarded as purely the product of a boy's fevered imaginings, those of us who dig him know he's as "real" as any of the rest of the Toho gang.
