Editorial Reviews

Forget about acid rain and global warming! The worst ecological nightmare is actually HedorahT, which starts off small but quickly mutates into a giant flying monster capable of wiping out all life on whatever unfortunate planet it lands on! And since HedorahT grows by consuming the toxic gases and chemicals mankind has spilled into the air and water, in the early 1970s that means that its potential growth is unlimited! Fortunately for the human race, the Earth has an ultimate green defender who doesn't need to sing protest songs or try to enact new laws to get things done. Because nobody, and nothing, can stop Godzillar when he decides to push an environmental issue, and while HedorahT may be the dirtiest opponent Godzillar has ever faced, his name is going to be mud by the time he's been stomped into the whole Earth a few dozen times. Get ready for the wildest Godzillar film ever as the social concerns and way out fashions of the seventies collide head on with the ultimate in big monster brawls in GODZILLAr VS. HEDORAHT!

It's wonderful that American home video distributors have finally started taking Godzilla seriously and releasing excellent DVDs of the Big Guy's flicks. This DVD of the 1971 "Godzilla vs. Hedorah" (originally released in America as "Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster") may not offer much in the way of extras, but it lets you see the film as you've never been able to: in a beautiful widescreen image (enhanced for 16:9 TVs) with the option to watch it in Japanese with English subtitles or dubbed into English. For older viewers, I definitely recommend watching it in Japanese; it will change your whole perspective on Godzilla and makes the film seem less cheap and campy. However, the English dub is a good feature to have for younger children, who will definitely want to watch the film as well.

Although watching "Godzilla vs. Hedorah" in Japanese will tone down the camp somewhat, this remains the weirdest, oddest, most mind-bogglingly bizarre of all Godzilla movies. In the 1970s the Japanese film industry entered a steep decline because of competition from television, and the Godzilla films suffered from severe budget cutbacks. One of the guiding fathers of the Godzilla films, special effects wizard Eiji Tsubaraya, died in 1969 and the effects work on the Godzilla films suffered an additional drop in quality. "Godzilla vs. Hedorah" therefore came at a time when the Godzilla films were changing, and not always for the better. A new director, Yoshimitsu Banno, helmed this film and purposely set out to make a completely new kind of Godzilla film: a weird mixture of serious environmental message, frightening horror sequences, rock 'n' roll party scenes, cartoon montages, kiddie antics, and surreal monster fights. This is one strange film!

This review is for the October 19 DVD release of Godzilla Vs. Hedorah, and this film is the eleventh movie in the long-running Godzilla series. The movie is also known as Godzilla Vs. the Smog Monster. Watching this film as an adult, I was surprised how good this film is. I recall it receiving the infamous Turkey Award as one of the worst movies ever made, but this is far from being the worst Godzilla movie ever made. The plot (what little there is) is interesting and the special effects hold up rather well by Seventies standards. Hedorah would be a monster best realized by modern CGI but the costume works well, even if the sludge which oozes from beneath him is so digusting as to be laughable at times. Here Godzilla is a friend to humanity; however the movie is nowhere near as campy as subsequent releases which resulted in the temporary death of the series. One negative aspect of the story, Godzilla does fly in this movie -- embarrassing indeed.

The quality of this DVD is impressive. The image is a 2.35:1 widescreen, and the image is allegedly anamorphic. There are many night sequences in this film which are beautifully rendered on this transfer -- contrasts are terrific, and it's clear to see what is occurring, whereas videotapes of this film made it hard to tell what was going on. Colors are bright and lifelike, but do sometimes look slightly washed out in special effects sequences. The film has been impressively restored, but there are still occasional bits of dust which appear throughout the film. For what it's worth, the image quality of this DVD is far better than ADV Films' DVD release of the 1995 Gamera film.

I remember as a youth, about 5-6 years old, watching Godzilla on T.V. , I was hooked! A giant lizard smashing cities!?!? Awesome!!

Now there are 2 camps in the Godzilla fan base, the ones who hate the "Kid" movies, and those like myself that love them. This is even weirder... almost in it's own category... part monster movie, part hippie environmental statement....

But its BECAUSE it's so weird that I love it!! If you want to see the weirdest Godzilla movie ever made, THIS is the movie to see!!

Okay folks, this is the one where I toss aside journalistic integrity (or whatever code online reviewers of DVDs have to abide by) and revel in pure, brazen fanboy love! Yes, I know the movie plays like a psychedelic mish-mash of 70s movie cliches and worn-out kaiju eiga conventions. Of course the music score is terrible. I am well aware that Hedorah looks (and sounds) like he is taking a hit off a titanic bong when he inhales the smoke from the smoke stacks(all red eyed & laid back even). Yep, those are electric instruments, powered by what must be the longest extension cord in the world, being played by hippies so concerned about the environment, they light a bonfire big enough to burn down a house. Yes, yes... All of this is true. However, I love this movie. Why? Because it's fun in its own weird way. Perhaps it helps that I saw this film every year around Thanksgiving as a child. I would spend hours entranced by WOR's Thanksgiving marathons of King Kong & Godzilla films. Hedorah was always the capper. I have many fond memories of watching scenes of Godzilla battling a giant pile of sludge set to a groovy 70s soundtrack. No, it's not a great movie but, you know what? I still love it. And, while I am confessing... I really like Hedorah as a monster. Yes, I know. I should be ashamed but.. I'm not! This is one crazy G film. See it. Dig it. Groove on it, man!
