1945: Just before the Germans surrender to the Allied Forces, the heart of the Frankenstein monster is shipped off to Japan - where it arrives in Hiroshima just in time to be hit by the atom bomb ... but of course, Frankenstein's heart is immortal, and thanks to the radiation, 15 years later it has grown into a man - but the radiation makes this man grow and grow into a giant monster - a benign one though. Then people are killed and eaten by a monster, and everybody but three scientists (Nick Adams, Tadao Takashima, Kumi Mizuno) believe it was the Frankenstein monster (Koji Fuiruhata), even though all the evidence points into a different direction. But hey, people are killed by a giant monster, and it seems Frankenstein is the only one around ... until reptilic Baragon shows up, a giant monster that's mighty good at digging (which is why it has been able to hide so well). Eventually of course these two creatures meet and fight to the death, Baragon's death. Then for no apparent reason, Frankenstein is killed by a giant octopus - but has he really died? No, he returned in next years War of the Gargantuas ...

 

One of Inoshiro Honda's lesser monster films, this one puts too much emphasis on its human protagonists rather than its monster, too much emphasis on the monster's origins rather than its path of destruction, and honestly, Frankenstein doesn't look all that menacing (well ok, he's supposed to be a benign monster). Admittedly there are some fine scenes of destruction, and the final duel Frankenstein vs the leaping (!) reptile is fun - but in all, the film is actually rather on the dull side. Pity!
