All Monsters Attack (ゴジラ•ミニラ•ガバラ オール 怪獣大進撃?, Gojira Minira Gabara: Ōru Kaijū Daishingeki, lit. Godzilla, Minilla, Gabara: All Monsters Attack) is a 1969 tokusatsu kaiju film produced by Toho Company Ltd., and the tenth installment in the Godzilla series as well as the Showa series. The film was released to Japanese theaters on December 20, 1969.


Plot

Ichiro Miki is a highly imaginative but lonely latchkey kid growing up in urban Tokyo. Every day he comes home to his family's empty apartment. His only friends are a toymaker named Shinpei Inami and a young girl named Sachiko. Every day after school, Ichiro is terrorized by a gang of bullies led by a child named Gabara. To escape his loneliness, Ichiro fantasizes about visiting Monster Island, where he befriends Minilla, the son of Godzilla, who has the inexplicable power to change his size and speak English. During these daydreams, Ichiro watches as Minilla deals with his own bully, a monster also named Gabara. It is through these fantasies that he learns how to face his fears and fight back. These lessons also grant him the courage to outwit two bumbling bank robbers, as well as have the guts to stand up to Gabara and his gang in a final confrontation.

Trivia

  • All Monsters Attack is considered by many fans to be the worst Godzilla film, not counting the 1998 film.
  • All Monsters Attack is similar to Gamera: Super Monster because both were made in the Showa era, have a large amount of stock footage, have a kid as the main protagonist, and are considered the worst in their respective series.
  • This is one of three films in which monsters speak. The other two are Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster, though it was translated by the Shobijin, and Godzilla vs. Gigan.
  • Although Ichiro says Rodan lives on Monster Island, he does not make any kind of cameo in the entire movie.
