I actually saw this in a movie theater
When I was 8. I was amazed. Up to that point me and my brothers had only seen grainy , snowy repeats of the original Godzilla in black and white. Here was a full length monster movie with a nicely paced plot , full of suspense in crystal clear color on a big screen. It was very effective for a 8 year old and it still is. Special effects are top notch, even by today's standards. I have the VHS version and I watch it occasionally to escape for a few hours. Highly recommended.
rodan is available on dvd-there is at least three different dvd releases.
One of the scariest movies ever.
Rodan: a Close Second
- Corey Storme Skriletz
Rodan is without a doubt one of Toho's best movies. The fact that it is so epic definitely puts Rodan himself in a close second position as Toho's best monster. I personally found the cast to be well chosen, and Rodan was an amazingly well-detailed monster. Definitely worth a watch whether you're a Godzilla fan or not.
The Life of Rodan
Rodan is among the many creatures that was part of TOHO's monster list of the 50's and ongoing. He first appeared in his own film Rodan, where there were 2 of the Rodan creatures, I won't tell you the outcome. He then makes his first reappearance as an attaagonist to Godzilla in Gidorah the Three Headed Monster, then also appeared in Invasion of the Astro Monster, Destroy all Monsters, Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla II (1993), then the last appearance was in Godzilla: Final Wars (2004) - This first one is a little rough for young children with the scenes of the giant insects, but otherwise is an interesting film. I first saw this when I was a child on tv during the time when there were only 3 networks and saturday afternoons were dedicated to movies all day and one of those movies was always something that was some sort of a monster. Thanks tcm for playing this great film.
