Only earth's most powerful weapon can stop an ancient menace! A gripping sci-fi action thriller by the creative forces behind the original Godzilla series. Directed by the great Ishiro Honda, musical score by Akira Ifukube and SFX genius Eiji Tsuburaya. The earth shakes violently. The tremors are caused by the undersea Mu Empire, a sinister dominion seeking to reclaim their rule above the sea with the aid of their god, Manda, a giant sea serpent dragon! The earth's hopes rest on Captain Jinguji and his super submarine Atragon to stop the Muans. The captain has no interest in fighting the undersea empire until they abduct his daughter. Now, the Atragon is in full battle mode and ready to take on the advanced weaponry of the Mu Empire to save the land dweller and the Captain's daughter.

This movie is weird and kind of fun. Yes, it’s silly. The idea is loopy. And yet............
Then there were decades when the movie was barely available on awful looking VHS tapes, panned and scanned in LousyColor. At last here it is in beautifully photographed Fuji color in a pristine full-frame transfer, uncut and with a serviceable English voice track. Now I realize my youth might not have been wasted after all, since it was flights of fantasy like this one which drew me into a continuing career in the movie business.
Izu Oshima Island about 100 kilometer south of Tokyo is used for the location of Muan attack scene and a number of occasions. "Back Desert(Moon Desert)" of the island is often used for Toho Sci-fi films and a number of sentai dramas because of its lunar landscape.
Verdict: Great sfx works of Tsuburaya, well-crafted drama.
Rating: 85 out of 100
Recommended for: Toho film fans. Classic sci-fi film fans.
