Sure. Taekoesu Yonggary is the standard Giant Monster movie deal. Think more Gamera than Godzilla (despite appearances) and you have a fair grasp of the flick. Except I find the kid here far less irritating than in Gamera, but that’s an personal preference.
A rare toe dip into the sub-genre by South Korea, Taekoesu Yonggary doesn’t quite make the grade. It has F/X that range from adequate compared its contemporaries to the downright embarrassing. The script, too, doesn’t do it any favors. All in all, I’m afraid it’s a bad film (0.5 points).
That said, I adore this movie. Super fun. I’d watch it again in a heartbeat. (2 points) Well worth checking out if you’re a fan of giant monsters or bad movies in general.
Overall Score: 2.5 total point out of a possible 4
