About the Director
Jun Fukuda joined Toho in 1946. His early work slanted more toward mystery, but he began to expand into more comedic work by the mid-1960s, with movies such as Iron Finger (1965). It was around this time that Fukuda was approached and given the opportunity to direct a movie in the Godzilla series, Ebirah, Horror of the Deep (1966), which he accepted. Fukuda would go on to direct entries in Toho's popular Young Guy series and Konto 55, however he would be best known for his Godzilla work and would later in his career become the "go to" director for special effects productions after Ishiro Honda stepped out of the limelight.

I'm noticing, however, that some reviewers claim that this is a bootleg. I purchased my copy quite some time ago, and I assure you, it's not a bootleg at all. If Amazon or whoever is fulfilling orders for this movie is no longer selling original copies, they need to come clean and say so. If the movie is no longer commercially available, people will still buy it, but those people deserve to know what they're paying for.
I'd like to focus more on the bluray itself. The picture quality is pretty good, better than I was expecting.
There are no special features at all.
Both language tracks are here which is great.
The biggest issue I had was a weird vhs type scrambled line that would appear at the bottom often. It would always appear if the picture cut to a different angle. It became very annoying as the movie went on. I'm pretty sure this is from the transfer. Did anyone else have this problem? Should I be contacting Media Blasters about this or is it like this on every copy?
This movie has so many plot holes you could water your garden through it. I suppose the biggest being when Megalon drop kicks the cannister and no ones skulls were bashed in from the initial impact or the landing??
And WHAT was up with that little boys daisy dukes?? Geez I never had so many upskirt shots of a tiny asian boys butt in my entire life (NOT that I'm into that...)
'I suppose Jet Jag U R made adjustments to his suit to meet the fight-a-giant-Japanese-monster height requirements'
This was made when wrestling was cool thusly the tag team monster match. LOTS and LOTS of stock footage there Ed Wood.
It is just as I remembered it though all in all a very cool giant monster flick featuring the greatest movie monster ever Godzilla

The blu Ray looks AMAZING!! There are some blurbs here and there at the bottom of the screen from what IDK never seen that in a film before---Sound quality very poor on the dubbed dialog reproduction but the music and sound effects are intact.
