It has many of the hallmarks of the numerous run-of-the-mill monster movies from the 1950s, like an unimaginative story, silly exposition and questionable acting, but Harryhausen's effects are stupendous, and rescue the film from mediocrity.

the acting is horrible bad, but the animation for the time is great i think and this is why it got this high rating.

One of the few times I genuinely empathized with the monster. Very dull plot, unlikable human characters, but nothing I wasn't expecting. The Ymir was the reason I watched it, and he was well worth the watch.

what the hell? why is the median rating so low for this movie? an all-time sci-fi classic & one of the best giant monster movies of all time as well. the ymir is one of harryhausen's most vibrant creature creations and both the character and the film capture genuine pathos. a must-watch.

There is no subtlety here -- see, last lines are kind of a lesson about human beings being incapable of planning a decent and peaceful future --, but every frame that is filled with Harryhausen's artwork looks impressive and beautiful. This is pure -- pure in the sense of naive and amusing entertainment.

One of the best of its monster movie kind, even with its laughable attempts at science & filler human roles (although, there's certainly a good deal of entertainment in its camp '50s appeal). All their flaws actually serve to make the monster more empathetic. It's clear that they lifted the story of King Kong, with a bit of sci-fi to make it seem new, but I really don't care. It's damn fun and the Harryhausen effects are killer.

The monster is great but the rest is mediocre. It's all just an excuse to show us some rampaging and elephant fighting.

That some quality garbage with cool visual effects. Science part to this fiction is horrible. But then you have a huge green reptile snacking on sulfur, kicking elephants pale ass and destroying Coliseum - that would make any film watchable.

Like everyone else says, it's absolutely useless except for the Harryhausen effects, of which there are lots. I felt more interest and sympathy for the monster than I did for any of the people, really; he gives it mannerisms and easy to read emotions that make its increasingly heightened emotional state impossible to miss. And yes, the depiction of non-Americans in this is pretty bad.

Cheeseparing monster fiction which doesn't wake up till the last five minutes, and looks pretty silly even then.

More fun from Harryhausen, not one of my favorites but has some of Ray's best work which I think was helped by the B&W photography. There's a lot of excellent matte work here, truly remarkable.

Merely worth it for the scene where the creature fights an elephant. Other than that, worthless.

Really, the score is for Harryhausen's monster and effects. The story is more shallow than most Godzilla movies and the acting is horrendous. Plus, the Italian characters are borderline offensive. However, the monster makes this worth at least one watch.

Kind of like a pornographic film -- the story and characters are as dull as dust, and are clearly there just as filler inbetween FX sequences
