This film was the first of 'em all, and at that time, one would never think Godzilla would amount to anything big. However, looking back, this film is THE masterpiece of the Showa series. The design was good, and it was defintely too good for the likes of Godzilla (2014) and defintely the 1998 film. so, the film is really good, but it was very old, so it's not the "best"
