Godzilla Raids Again
Science Fiction • 1955 • 1 hr 22 min
Just another Godzilla film, fun production design and effects though
Not as deep and smart as the original but still a solid kaiju movie
Drags after the fight between Godzilla and Anguirus. There's more craftsmanship than other Godzilla sequels, but feels like it's just there.
This sequel doesn’t live up to the complexity and intelligence of the first film. Anguirus is cool though
Not as important as the first and the fight scenes aren’t great. However it still takes itself seriously and is the last Showa film to do so
A disappointing follow up to the groundbreaking Gojira. It did introduce the idea of the big G fighting another giant creature. Just okay.
A bit too many kaiju fights imo, but it retains a somewhat serious tone, which I like. I enjoyed seeing the prof from the first movie again.
Notable for being the first of many sequels in this long-running franchise. By itself, though, it's ultimately a forgettable film.
Adding another monster to fight makes this sequel more entertaining, but starts to lose me after said monster dies with 1/3 left of movie.
Extremely dull film that plays out like a shittier version of its predecessor
