Viewing Notes

A cross between Connery’s Bond and Our Man Flint, with echos of Woody Allen’s What’s Up Tiger Lily? thrown in for good measure.

A fun film to watch and if you’re a Godzilla fan you’ll recognize about 90% of the cast since most of them starred in one or more Godzilla movies. Fukuda, the director, also directed and/or wrote a number of the ‘70s era Godzilla movies. He also served as chief assistant director on the Samurai Trilogy.
