"Okay. Legend of the Dinosaurs, and Monster Birds. The title says it all really. There's legend, there's at least one dinosaur- and as an after thought, we get a monster bird.
This is a horrible movie- make no mistake, but I love it so much.
"A misogynist geologist who loves his daddy refuses to go to Mexico to study strata- Instead he wants to follow in his Father's footsteps and find a dinosaur egg in a cave near Mount Fuji.
Unfortunately, modern science has concluded that dinosaurs and volcanic eruptions go hand in hand- Leading to our sizzling climax."
Crazy marionettes that stand in for men in suits, and grim grisly deaths abound. A woman graphically bleeds to death after having her leg bit in a lake. A half-eaten horse carcass is stuck in a tree. People blow themselves up (off-screen) with depth charges.
I saw this when I was three and now work in the film industry. Parents, show this to your children and purchase on credit!
The image quality is great and anamorphic. We get a couple trailers, English and Japanese audio, plus subtitles.
Only thing I wish was that the soundtrack came with it too. Did I mention that all our dinosaur attack scenes are accompanied by smooth disco-tech jazz and Japanese crooners? Okay, you got me, there is that one country western number. Not kidding.
Giant Monsters and Wacky Music

"The music in this film will bring back memories of Godzilla and a Smog Monster but the action is more along the lines of more classic Toho features. Here we have two giant monsters, a plesiosaur and a pterodactyl, a crazy music score, and a strange premise.
A young scientist is trying to prove that his father's theories are correct and that he was not crazy. The two believe that dinosaurs have managed to survive to modern day. When the giant plesiosaur makes its appearances he looks like he is being proved right. Suddenly a giant pterodactyl also makes an appearance. Both of these creatures (neither one is actually a dinosaur) are far larger than they really were. The film ends when the two monsters run into one another and have a typical monster brawl. Oddly enough this occurs deep in a forest (what's the plesiosaur doing out of water? How does the pterodactyl fit between the trees and under the treetops?).
All in all this is a pretty fun giant monster kaiju film. The monsters are just big, no powers of any sort. The final scene, involving a volcano, may be a bit too long for the action, but otherwise I really enjoyed this one. It was good to see a "new" corny kaiju film (think Godzilla's Revenge) as opposed to the more modern, but wonderful, releases. A bit of a trip down memory lane. Check it out."

"This is not a bad movie at all. Great gore for a dinosaur flick. I recomend this film, because it's time for dvd companies to release more kaiju films. Seen these kind of movies when I was a kid, never got bored with them."
