You must see the full Japanese version to appreciate this.
The complete version as released in Japan is the one to watch if you can get it. There's a very nicely done opening that shows the Frankenstein monster's heart being taken by the Nazis and sent to Japan near the end of WW2. This whole sequence is most eerie, nicely photographed, and puts the whole story into complete perspective of how Frankenstein came to be a Japanese giant monster, something lacking in the American release dubbed version. It almost makes up for the horrible costume of Baragon, one of the worst I've ever seen from Toho. You'll wish Frankenstein was a bit more built here, as he tends to look like a giant adolescent. It's a great battle scene with the forest fire in the background, and generally the whole film is a nice, if uneven, precursor to the constantly misunderstood Frankenstein going on to bigger and better things in War of the Gargantuas.
