Take a dip in the Immunity Bath, because Latitude Zero is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring M.O.M., the Mistress of Malapropisms.

Review in a Nutshell:  A 1969 tokusatsu film directed by Ishiro Honda with special effects by Eiji Tsuburaya, Latitude Zero was filmed in English and marketed to an international audience. Despite the presence of flying submarines, super advanced undersea civilizations, laser gloves, and a giant griffon, the extended international version of the movie is not nearly as zany as I wanted it to be.

  1. So it’s not nearly as good as its poster, Paul?

  2. It has narrative and pacing issues, Tim. I’d have to watch the shorter, Japanese language version of the film to see if it clears them up.

  3. I hope it does. Though it seems passable to me.
