When an ancient statue is moved for display in Expo '70, a giant, vaguely Triceratops-like monster is released. The monster goes to Japan in pursuit of the statue and ends up battling Gamera, the giant flying turtle.
An expedition in the South Pacific lands on a tropical island where the natives worship the mysterious deity Gappa. An earthquake opens up an underground cavern and a baby reptile is discovered inside. The natives warn the foreigners to leave the hatching alone, but they don't listen and take it back to a zoo in Japan. Soon after, moma and papa Gappa start smashing Tokyo looking for their kidnapped child. Written by

A big monster that breathes lightning, a city to be smashed and 60's styling- What more could you ask for?
I found this movie incredibly funny. There is nothing more fun than watching a man in a rubber suit smash over plastic buildings, while tiny plastic tanks attempt to stop it. The best part of the movie is where a flying animal appears out of the jungle on the island and you can see the strings attached to it's wings. You don't get effects like that these days. I recommend this movie if you want a good laugh, but if you want somthing serious, go elsewhere. It's Great!
