    Destroy All Monsters (1968) is Toho's 20th monster film and Godzilla's 9th, and is meant as a celebration of the genre. It succeeds both as "check your brain at the door" entertaining and "look at all the cool models" technical achievement. The two major sources of disappointment, for me at least, were that the plot was essential Invasion of Astro-Monster's without the more interesting characters (there's nary a motivation for the aliens), and that Mothra never cocoons to become a biewtiful butterfly. Boo. Still, 11 monsters (though two are barely seen due to the suits being in bad shape), some of them rampaging in non-Japanese locations like New York, Moscow and Paris, and King Ghidorah getting violently trounced... it's still a lot of fun. Godzilla looks great, as do Anguirus, Rodan and Manda. As usual, I could do without Minilla (the baby Godzilla). So a fun flick, I just wish there was more meat to it. 5 years 2 months ago
