Godzilla Does Copenhagen, basically. The locations are one novelty of this monster movie, which at times looks like an ad for the Danish Tourist Board. Another’s the way its monster is created, regenerating itself from an excavated tail tip.
Sadly it’s so-bad-it’s-bad inept in almost every respect: the dodgy dubbing, the stilted dialogue, and most of all the monster. A wobbly marionette never convincingly integrated with the live action, it’s about as frightening as The Clangers’ Soup Dragon.
Osborne’s warnings came true.
