4.0 out of 5 stars If you're reading this, you already like monster movies. September 15, 2007
Format:DVD
First up is Yongary Monster From The Deep. This film seems to be judged pretty harshly but I was surprised at how enjoyable it was. Is the monster suit bad? Yes. Are the effects bad? Yes. Is it worse than the later Showa Series of Godzilla films? No. (Refer to the title of the review). The print looks very good and is 2.35 anamorphic which is far better than any previous release that I know of. On the flipside we have Konga. I didn't like this one as well but it has its merits I guess. The movie has a pretty good build up but the special effects climax is anything but! It is fun seeing Michael Gough over act as a mad scientist. It is the same release as the previous stand alone disc so the print isn't too bad (not as good as Yongary's) unfortunately it is still Non-anamorphic. Anyway two good monster flicks worth adding to your collection. I'm glad I did.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yongary At Last December 12, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
MGM continues to release some great titles in these Double Feature DVDs. KONGA, a goofy-but-entertaining one, has been released previously, so the real reason to get this is for the nice widescreen print of YONGARY, which was for many years the only South Korean monster film to be seen in the USA. Of course, comparisons to Godzilla and/or Gamera are all but inevitable, but the film stands on its own as a favorite Saturday afternoon Creature Feature. Video quality of both titles is fine, and YONGARY includes a scene I had not seen before: planes and military vehicles are sliced in half by Yongary's death ray...I guess he learned that trick from Gyaos. If you're a kaiju fan, this one's a must!

3.0 out of 5 stars From the pretty good to the indefensible November 7, 2007
Format:DVD
Y'know, I wasn't really expecting to like either of these...
So why buy the thing? Hey, it was cheap and I love the genre.
But Konga was great! Misanthropic to be sure, some clunky effects without doubt but the former just added to its bent charms and the latter were not as numerous as I expected. Way more enjoyable than I was led to believe and everybody in the thing (except, weirdly, them playing cops) is a glorious, fat ham!
Yongary, on the other hand, is the worst man-in-suit- monster movie I have had the rabid displeasure to see. I have a high tolerance for crappy movies but this is just unwatchable.
So all three stars are for Konga, a deliciously guilty pleasure.

And both flicks look great!

Just when one thinks only the Japanese can make giant reptile monster movies, along comes one from...South Korea!

YONGARY: MONSTER FROM THE DEEP is awakened by an A-Bomb test in the Middle East and decides to make a beeline for...not Tokyo...but, rather, Seoul, South Korea to get revenge for having his slumber disturbed. You know how it is with 200 foot tall reptiles. They always wake up grumpy.

The rubber monster suit / model jets on black strings in this flick are certainly on a par with anything Toho produced in that era. But, this movie suffers from a serious lack of depth to its plot. Monster wakes up and attacks. Monster gets killed and all is well on planet Earth again. That's it folks...don't expect anything more from this film.

KONGA, on the other hand, I found to be very entertaining. It's sort of a murder mystery with some sci-fi thrown in to make it even more interesting.

Michael Gough plays the ultimate mad scientist out to "prove" to the world and those in academia who dismissed him as a kook that his new discoveries will revolutionize life on Earth. And, of course, he does not care how many standing in his way he has to kill to do so. To accomplish this, he will need one love obsessed female lab assistant, one chimp turned into a murderous zombie gorilla with injections of plant growth hormones extracted from rare African plants, and a large van to transport said gorilla to the homes of his victims. That should give you an idea of about 90% of the plot of this little gem.

This film is worth the price of the DVD just to see Gough's over the top performance.

3.0 out of 5 stars One boring, one not . . . May 3, 2009
Format:DVD
The Korean monster picture YONGARY looks phenomenal here in nicely restored widescreen, especially when compared to the various public domain releases of years gone by, but it's as boring as it ever was, sadly (it takes a good three+ minutes for the heroes to administer their winning "dose" at the climax). Also probably the only time I've seen a major character in a 60's movie anywhere die from rectal bleeding. Unique for what it is--Korea's first giant monster film--but squarely aimed at undiscriminating kids of the day (who preferred their monsters to dance!). KONGA's a different beastie altogether, although it's as budget-minded as YONGARY thanks to legendary producer Herman Cohen. But with Michael Gough in the lead, an actor who knew just how to pitch performances in this kind of material (most notably in Cohen's HORRORS OF THE BLACK MUSEUM), this is premium schlock with a gigantic ape--made that way by a jilted woman no less--stomping around a miniature London.

5.0 out of 5 stars Killer flicks. June 16, 2014
By t27m4gv

If you like 1950's sci-fi thrillers, you will enjoy watching these movies. Yongary is the meanest reptile since Godzilla and the mad scientist who created Konga is the meanest college professor since Dr Jekyll.

3.0 out of 5 stars YONG KONG PHOOEY September 14, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love these movies because they are a good example of just how fun 60's films were, as in wacky and totally out there. If you like Japanese monster movies than Yongary won't disappoint and if you love tacky giant ape films than Konga is a hoot, although how they get a giant gorilla from a chimp is anyone's guess.
So monster movie fans of the world unite and relive what you once feared as a kid, c'mon, face your fears. Oh the quality of the prints is good too.
