Description

Storyline

Gorgo  A salvage vessle is nearly sunk off the Irish coast by an undersea earthquake. A few nights later, a walking sea monster tangles with the fishing boats and enters the town. The salvage vessel captures Gorgo and takes it to London for display. Gorgo’s mother, who is upset and significantly larger follows his trail to London leaving a wake of destruction in her path.

One of the better giant lizard flicks around.

 

Gorgo  A better-than-average giant lizard movie from Britain, this is a fairly well-made and exciting monster flick.

Sailors capture a huge, scaly sea monster and take it to London to be a tourist attraction. Unfortunately this ‘monster’ is only a baby and its MUCH BIGGER mother is on the way to save it!

Gorgo is an epic B picture thats a notch above all the rest on every level. The story is more creative than the normal giant monster movie, it doesn’t have one of those clichéd conclusions either. The creature FX (while granted the monster is a big rubber suit) are far more impressive and ominous than most of its kind. There’s lots of intense action to be had, especially in the destructive climax! The music score is nice as well.

The cast is better than average too. Leading men Bill Travers and William Sylvester do some solid performances, even young Vincent Winter isn’t bad as a kid who wants to see the creature set free.

All the way Gorgo is a better quality monster movie than most of its breed. Genre fans will find it a worth-wild watch.

Underrated Monster Classic

 
For some reason, most non-Godzilla giant monster films are looked down upon by IMDB reviewers. Gorgo, the “English Godzilla”, tears apart London in this film that is just as entertaining, and perhaps even more so, than the original Godzilla. Both the infant and adult Gorgo’s look fantastic, and the human actors, while somewhat bland, aren’t terrible and don’t detract much from the movie. Also factor in that it’s infinitely more interesting when the monuments destroyed are all recognizable, and it’s strange to see why this film, especially among sci-fi/monster film fans, isn’t more appreciated. Plus, you gotta dig those crazy prehistoric fish (the only part of the film that doesn’t really make sense)!
