Critic Reviews:

Sadly, it’s the title creatures ruining the illusion, a hokey design lacking in plausibility (even by the genre’s soon-to-be anything goes output in the ‘70s). And yet, a tear or two may be shed as the bland suits sail toward the sunset, reminding a country to slow down and appreciate the people around us. They matter more than profit.

Climb in and witness cockpit views of fighting giant monsters and crashing into the hills as these creatures take down jets and smash houses, crumbling all into piles of rubble while in search for their baby. Quick zooms and flying monsters are the norm in this flick while baby Gappa makes the cover of Playmate Magazine.

[Gappa] was pretty much a waste of everyone’s time and effort. The filmmakers blew a lot of money and months of work on a movie so forgettable that I can’t even remember the title now. And all of us who took the time to watch it would surely love to have that 90 minutes back. Avoid the trouble, watch a Godzilla flick instead.
