Family feuds Kaiju style can be an ugly affair. Brotherly rivalries even more so as evidenced in one of Toho’s liveliest entries. Gargantua brothers Gaira (an evil green ogre with the shaggiest of hair) and Sanda (a sympathetic giant with the face of a surfer) battle it out in Tokyo after negotiations to stop eating humans come to a standstill. Their lengthy fisticuffs is one of special effects master Eiji Tsubruaya’s wildest city demolitions. 

 

A sequel to the lackluster FRANKENSTEIN CONQUERS THE WORLD, WOTG is a Kaiju flick that never stops to breath. Gaira remains one of the foulest of all Kaiju; demonstrated to great effect in a scene where he eats a woman and spits out her clothes!
