The world has fallen under attack by aliens once again, and this time, they have taken control of Earth's monsters in order to destroy the human race! It is up to an elite band of scientists and space explorers to put an end to the evil plan before it is too late! DESTROY ALL MONSTERS captures all of the most popular trends that were defined in the Showa Era, from the Space Age plot involving scheming aliens to the all-out monster melee that is promised by the title. Though it never fully delivers in either regard, it is still entertaining enough to appease the fans. DESTROY ALL MONSTERS was originally planned as the final film in the series, and is the last film to feature Godzilla's four founding fathers, with Ishiro Honda directing and Akira Ifukube composing another fine score. Despite an increased budget over the two preceding films, however, the recycled storyline and mediocre special effects fail to live up to INVASION OF THE ASTRO-MONSTER. All of that is forgotten as Toho unleashes its entire monster line-up to destroy each of Earth's capitols before facing off in a giant battle royale against King Ghidorah! The final battle is a bit of a let down since it is relatively short and many of the monsters are forced to sit on the sidelines, but Godzilla and friends gang up and take turns just beating the living hell out of Ghidorah. DESTROY ALL MONSTERS may not be the strongest film in the series, but it features all of the most popular elements that fans have come to adore.
Monsters: Godzilla, Minilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah, Rodan, Gorosaurus, Anguirus, Kumonga, Manda, Baragon, Varan.
