Review of _Attack of the Super Monsters_

Read about this on the Bad Movie Website and just had to see it for myself. I don't know how much was lost in translation from the Japanese, but am well aware that most anime - like most of anything else - is mediocre. This is just south of mediocre.
The DVD is a good copy, both visually and aurally. However, what it's copying may not have been worth the effort.
It's worth viewing to see how multiple techniques - cell animation, stop-motion animation and live action with guys in rubber monster suits - were integrated, but otherwise give it a miss."
The weirdest movie I've ever seen!

"This movie is just plain weird. I'm not sure I even know what to think of it.
Well, it's the only movie I've seen involving cartoon heroes, live-action, rubber suit monsters and a bizarre truck/tank/aircraft thingy. It's a unique movie, at any rate. Despite a large amount of repitition, I didn't get bored watching it."
Attack of the bad movie

"I'm a big fan of giant monster movies and shows "Godzilla, Ultraman" and was very disappointed with this movie. Dinosaurs have survived for millions of years below the Earth's surface. They have become more intelligent than humans and have decided to take back the surface annihilating all humans in the process. The only thing that can stop them is a group of four super-powered teenagers "two of them look like old men in their 60's". The younger male and female can somehow combine themselves to become one cyborg being/vehicle called Gemini to fight the "terrifying" monsters. The movie is a mixture of live action, suitmation & animation. The animation is very crude, the rubber-suited monster are worse than what you see in Ultraman, and the live action is something out of the Thunderbirds. I believe the film was originally a tv show that a few of the episodes were combined to make this 83 minute movie, so there really isn't any satisfying conclusion to the story.
