"Gorgo" was another wonderful "giant monster" movie to me when I used to watch it on TV as a kid. Everytime they showed it, I watched it. The last time I saw it was either on TV in the early 80's or on videocassette in the early 90's, as an adult. I was surprised then, to realize how mediocre it really was. But, some old movies that don't hold up to my adult tastes, still have enough nostalgic value for me to enjoy watching them, once in a while. So, when I found this double feature, plus other nostalgic extras for under a dollar, I couldn't pass it up. I wasn't expecting pristine picture or sound, but I don't care about that. I remember how these old movies looked and sounded on TV back in the 60's, 70's and 80's and am perfectly happy if my dvd copies are no better. I prefer perfection, but don't require it.

The story of "Gorgo," for those not familiar with it: a dinosaur, apparently held in suspended animation for HUNDREDS of MILLIONS of YEARS, is awoken by volcanic heat and is captured, to become the newest attraction in an amusement park. But, oops! Gorgo is a baby dino and it's mother, 100 times larger, or so, strolls across England to retrieve her precious angel. A very large dose of woulda, shoulda, coulda, for the entrepreneurs in this story! Meanwhile, an orphaned boy, who somehow realizes that Gorgo is a just a poor little dino-boy, sympathizes with him and tags along, for the young'ens in the audience.

The reason Gorgo doesn't hold up well, is mostly because the script, or what parts of it made it to the final film, don't tell the story very well. There seem to be big chunks of missing story, plus the boy's connection with "little" Gorgo, isn't prominent enough to evoke any emotional connection with the audience.

Didn't remember how great Gorgo was and especially the special effects for that time period. If you loved Godzilla and never saw Gorgo---give this classic film a try!
