| Gojira no gyakushû: Inferior sequel, but not by much
The cheesily titled Godzilla Raids Again see's our titular giant lizard strike Japan a second time but now as part of a battle with another oversized creature.

Alongside Godzilla with have a giant spikey turtle and the battle between the pair will see Osaka devastated again. What can our heroes do to stop them?

With some of the original cast but mostly new faces behind the camera this sequel to the 1954 classic lacks much of the charm of the original but still showcases special effects that were far ahead of their time.

Yes compared to everything we're used to now it all looks so very silly but it's hard not to recognise and appreciate how much effort went into this.

Sadly the sfx team fell a bit short and though things look great they aren't a patch on the original movie. The subtlely is also gone and that's a real shame as a tad more may have eased the pressure for creature effects.

A passable sequel and impressive for its time but pacing issues and a naff finale don't allow it to compare to it's predecessor.

The Good:

Way ahead of its time

Some of the original cast

The Bad:

Poorly paced

Weak ending

SFX are inferior to the previous years effort

Muted footage from first film was a bafflingly bad decision

Sped up fight scenes look daft

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

If you add the Benny Hill music to the monsters battle it fits perfectly
