"Godzilla vs Hedorah" released 1971
"Godzilla vs Hedorah" was released in Japan July 24, 1971 but American audiences would get tos ee it the following February. The eleventh movie in the Godzilla franchise had a strong anti-pollution message but the movie itself seems as if it was made from the same pollution featured in it. This is my second-least favorite Godzilla movie (Godzilla's Revenge being the worst). It has inconsistencies and editing problems that remove any entertainment value.
It is the only movie to feature Godzilla flying, using his breath to propel him backwards. It was supposed to lighten up a mostly dark movie. The inserted animated shorts are a bit bizarre.
