A nuclear test disturbs a mammoth fire breath horror that comes charging into the nearest city and…

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
