Review: Female aliens take control of Earth's monsters (Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, King Ghidorah, Anguirus, Minya, Spiega (aka Kumonga), Baragon, Gorosaurus, Manda, and Varan) and begin using them to destroy the human race. What more do you need?! This has the Toho Co., Ltd pulling out all the stops and letting the greatest monsters battle each other causing mass destruction in all its glory. No CGI! It's all practical effects and guys in rubber monster suits destroying miniature sets and each other and I love every minute of it. If there's a plot, it's lost on me. I'm here for the monster fights... and it's Awesome!!!

Stars (out of 4):

Fun Fact: The Japanese title of this film actually translates as "The Monster Invasion."
