Rated PG · 91 minutes · 1984
I happened to catch Kohji Hashimoto's remake of Japan's classic rubber-monster tale during a trip to Tokyo, where it was the biggest hit of the 1984 Christmas season. But even the rare frisson of watching it in one of the very buildings destroyed by the hero during his climactic saunter down the Ginza didn't save it: it's a dull, drawn-out, completely impersonal effort. The American version apparently was severely cut and camped-up, incorporating additional scenes directed by R.J. Kizer and featuring Raymond Burr (whose footage in the 1956 film was also a stateside addition). I haven't seen the ad-ons, but I doubt that they can help. With Keiju Kobayashi, Ken Tanaka, and Yasuka Sawaguchi.
