Unfortunately, it still has the problem that so many giant-monster-fighting movies have- taking too long to get to the monsters fighting, and having them not fight for very long. A little more than half way through, a Godzilla-type monster shows up and starts rampaging though a city. Then it keeps rampaging for 20 minutes, and the whole time you're waiting for the Kappa to show up. When he does, the fight is great and funny, though it only lasts for about 10 minutes. The Kappa himself makes for a cool kaiju in this scene, using wrestling moves and just having a great time. I would've liked to have seen the Kappa fight some other monsters as well, or for the one fight to last longer, at least.
It may have been better if it at least appeared to take itself seriously, which is what makes real B-movies fun to watch in the first place, but all in all, the enjoyable parts make this a fun watch for fans of classic kaiju movies.
Fans of serious giant monster movies have the Criterion Collection release of Godzilla, for those who enjoy a can of "Cheez Whiz" with their monsters, Death Kappa delivers.
I got the DVD/Blu-Ray Combo, and in the blu-ray every single wire on every flying object is visible. I do not know if this was intentional. There are tons of digs in here at the Japanese military and Japanese men in general. Fighter pilots wearing eye shadow for no reason, soldiers too afraid to fire their guns... none of it makes sense. It's almost as if the film makers agree with the neo-Nazi villains, and think that Japan has become too soft. I wish they would have let us in on the joke. Continuity is almost non-existent. The giant monsters appear almost magically after an atomic explosion without explanation, just a narrator saying something like "Oops, they shouldn't have done that!" The hero girl (who was at Ground Zero of the atomic blast), shows up at the end to save the day without even so much as a dirty face.
