(68) For a film with so many firsts for the Godzilla franchise, Invasion of the Astro-Monster is mediocre in several other ways. It’s almost a solid ‘60s sci-fi flick but a bit shallow even as B-cinema. Almost a compelling Earth/alien romance, though that thread is cut short unceremoniously. Almost a terrific kaiju throw-down (with an exciting final act), yet there is less action throughout than in many Showa pictures.
