What the Fuck is Going On: Even the legendary Ishiro Honda is prone to mistakes [this movie, the Element SUV]. This is a massive one, ranking somewhere on the Japanese tragedy scale between WWII and Seaweed Snacks.
The premise is simple: The living heart of Frankenstein’s monster travels from Nazi Germany to Japan and after the Hiroshima bomb goes off is presumed lost. It isn’t and eventually and American scientist [always with the Americans!] puts it in the chest of a feral Japanese boy. Of course he enlarges! Of course he does! How could he not?
Baragon, the burrowing giant reptile with the cute and floppy ears arrives on the scene shortly after Hideous Boygiant Frankenasshole escapes from captivity. The result battle is one for the ages. If you are a piece of shit.
