A man begins to suspect that something is wrong about his employers; meanwhile, Godzilla and Anguirus are alerted to something strange going on.
This film is part of the Criterion Collection, spine #1,000.
Now what's the matter?
Gengo Kotaka: You're hard, bitch.
Tomoko Tomoe: What was that? Can you please say that again?
Gengo Kotaka: Oh no I won't. Not with you being a black belt in karate.
As Gigan steps on a car while ravaging across town, the front bumper and grill pop off the car, revealing that no engine is inside the plastic hood.
In the opening credits of the Japanese version, colorful lasers shoot from different directions, and pop up into strips within which each credit appears in white text. In the English versions, only the sound FX of the lasers are heard (standard text credits were used).
In 1977, Cinema Shares International released Toho's international English-dubbed print in the US under the title "Godzilla on Monster Island". This film featured a different title card and credits sequence (but using the same footage underneath). Cinema Shares International also censored some language (muting the word "bitch") and trimmed three shots of Godzilla and Angilas bleeding. Also, Godzilla's shooting his radioactive breath into the camera (originally segueing into the main title card) is shown again in hi-speed motion before the film's "The End" title card.
