THE PLOT:

It begins in the year 1945, a German U-Boat brings the still beating heart of Frankenstein monster to the doomed city of Hirosoma minutes before the Americans drop the A-Bomb. Decades later a child like creature is discovered attacking small animals to survive. Dr. Yuzo Kawaji, Dr. James Bowen and Dr. Sueko Togam investigates to discover the boy is a mutant Frankenstein monster who somehow grew a new body around the beating heart of the century old monster and the body is still growing to giantic size. To make matters worse a new monster has been spotted, dubbed Baragon. Can the Frankenstein monster stop the terror from the deep?

THE OPINION:

I think this movie was very good, not excellent and not perfect by a long shot. But the scenrio they came up with to make Frankenstein giant makes sense, I only wish they kept the first idea of Frankenstein Vs. Godzilla, it made more sense then adding anothing 60 feet to King Kong. But that's another review. Anyway, the plot dragged alittle and it's hard to see Frankenstein as a Japanese man.
I GIVE IT (7 STARS)

ON THE POSITVE SIDE (+ HITS)

+ STORY (Mutating the living disembodied heart of Frankenstein does make sense)
+ BARAGON (Intrudicing a monster to fight the giant Frankenstein is very good idea)
+ EFFECTS (Flawless effects for the time peroid)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES)

- SLOW (It took a while to get going, but it was worth the wait)
- JAPANESE FRANKENSTEIN (Not to now like a bigot, but it was a little hard to believe the Frankenstein Monster as a Japanese boy)
