Critic Reviews:

"Attack of the 50-Foot Woman" was remade some thirty years later with some good people involved, and I must admit to being curious to see that version. The original fumbles around with a potentially potent mix of feminism, pulp, and film noir but nobody behind the camera seems able to make anything of it. It's a bad movie with a good hook, and could benefit from an upgrade.

As entertainment, the movie ends up being far more potent than its makers could have hoped, leavening its sci-fi and horror elements with a certain degree of humor, both as depicted on screen in the guise of the inept deputy, and arcing over the preposterous story.

It’s perhaps well-intentioned, but horribly executed. It has hints of serious domestic drama, but it’s the camp fantasy that sticks with you. Is it fun? For me, barely. Instead, it’s the perfect movie to make fun of, rather than to have fun watching.
