| Uchû daikaijû Dogora: Not what the movie promises
So look at the cover, read the premise, this is another Toho monster movie right? Wrong.

Dogora tells the story of mysterious creatures that come from space and seem to have an desire for diamonds. Meanwhile the police are after a prominent gang of diamond thieves (What a coincidence).

The latter get's considerably more screen time, this is essentially a crime drama rather than a sci-fi. Sure we have our creature (Though it's nothing like the cover suggests) but it's more of a side character than the movies antagonist.

The usual brand of Toho miniatures being used for sfx are present and I personally like that, it's when they tried to do computer generated effects that it all falls apart. Man are they ugly, it's 1964 so it's to be expected but it doesn't take away from just how much their ugliness takes you out of the movie. On the flip side however their are several effects done which I've not seen before from this period, they look great and are well ahead of their time.

If you can get past that this isn't a creature feature it's passable enough stuff, but I went in with expectations and they weren't met.

The Good:

Some great visuals

The Bad:

Some awful visuals

Isn't what it's advertised as
