Synopsis
Giant monsters are rampaging in cities across the globe, and as the Earth Defense Force struggles to find a way to defeat the malicious mutants, their only hope lies frozen in the Antarctic in Versus director Ryuhei Kitamura futuristic entry into the long-running kaiju series. In the near future, Earth is being decimated by monsters that have been mysteriously unleashed in every major city from New York to Sydney, and as the world population falls into a paralyzing state of panic, the Earth Defense Force must stage a daring initiative to save the human race. After a giant unidentified flying object suddenly appears and vaporizes the beasts in a matter of seconds, the relieved citizens of Earth are comforted to hear that the newly arrived alien race is seeking to make a peace treaty with humankind. All is not as it seems, however, and as the nefarious aliens reveal their true nature, it's up to Godzilla to take back the planet -- or die trying. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

A fun Destroy All Monsters remake by DaveS425 September 19, 2009 - 10:13 PM PDT

8/10 if you get this kind of movie, otherwise 3/10.

From the director of Versus, a "classic" ghost-zombie-Highlander movie. It's good if you are in the mood for a modern remake of Destroy All Monsters with digital effects but still using models and guys in rubber suits. It reminded me of the silliness of Kung Fu Hustle. The first half was a little slow but the second half was a fun mix of monster battles and matrix style fighting between mutant humans and aliens.

The "5" is a B-movie 5. The movie deserves a 3 on any other scale. It's fun watching a half-dozen different toho monsters laying waste to the capitals of the world, but that's only half the plot. The other half plays like the matrix: super kung-fu enforcer vs. the good-hearted saviour whose full potential has yet to be released. There's even some budget bullet time, and a motorcycle chase.

The ships and effects are fun, as are the monsters, but at 2 hours, you're left sifting through an hour of crap just to enjoy an hour of good, campy fun. There's even an english-only character whose bad acting can't be disguised via the insulating barrier of language.
