This movie rocks!! Where else can you see a giant sized Frankenstein Monster fight another giant monster called Baragon? - I tell you No Where But Right Here My Friend!! Buy this little piece of wonderment, invite your friends over, drink many beers, and let yourself endulge on a buffet of monster madness!
This is the start of a very good summer!
The short version of the plot is that the Germans realize defeat is imminent in World War Two, so they give the heart of Frankenstein's monster, which cannot be killed, to their ally, Japan, for secret military purposes. Unfortunately, the experiments get underway in Hiroshima early in the morning of August 6, 1945, just as a B-29 drops an atomic bomb on the city. Fast forward fifteen years and a mysterious mute waif who eats dogs starts terrorizing the community, while nearly simultaneously Baragon appears destroying some oil fields. Clearly the film is headed for a conflict of epic proportions, and over the remainder of the movie Frankenstein grows enormously, tangling with Baragon in amusing fight scenes. Depending on which version you watch, a third kaiju, in this case an enormous octopus, wanders through the forest to join the fight as well.
This is a very entertaining film on a lot of levels, but mostly in a fun man-in-a-rubber suit (or lots of makeup) takes on all contenders way.Read more ›
Hey, the premise for "Frankenstein vs. Baragon" may sound a little whack but it actually works... I mean, who can really say what all sorts of colorful effects, excessive radiation can have on a 19th century, undead artificial-intelligence which has been kept in stasis by the Nazi's. Turns out this film is a pretty decent versus offering in spite of Frankenstein's (yes... we all know he's the monster but that's how he's popularly referred to) geeky caveman appearance and Baragon occasionally looking like a colossal puppy-dog, and furthermore provided a prequel for the exceptional 1966 film "War of the Gargantuas".
Bells & whistles on this DVD set include some deleted scenes (not particularly inspiring), the original trailer (*snores*) as well as the original, Japanese subbed and English dub on two separate discs. Speaking of which, is it just me or does anyone else think it would be awesome if when the studios perform the digital transfer, they'd re-dub `em as well... I'd so love to hear some contemporary, Funimation voice-actors in these much-beloved films. :o)
