All Monsters Attack is a children’s movie seen through the eyes of Ichiro, a young boy who is bullied by his school mates. Through the power of his imagination, he learns valuable lessons from Minilla (Godzilla’s son), whose problems with rival monster Gabara, provides Ichiro the courage to fight back. From the young boy’s point of view, Godzilla becomes a monster superhero and ultimately the protector of children in this ever-evolving franchise. Mercifully, this feature-length movie is just under seventy minutes in length, which is likely more than enough to satisfy the most rabid young fans of monster movies (Klaus Ming February 2012).
