Sometimes it just feels like a typical '60s kaiju film done in the '90s. Done very well, I'll give you that, but I feel like I've already seen everything before in Frankenstein vs. Baragon, Mothra, King Kong vs. Godzilla, etc. I prefer the second and third movies in the trilogy for more originality.
The plot was original, the characters were original, the monsters were original, the monster fights were original, the music was original. I don't see how it's a typical "60s kaiju film done in the 90s". It's so much different from the movies you listed its not even funny.
Plot - Exactly the same as Frankenstein vs. Baragon.
Characters - It was nice seeing a female lead, but it still had your typical comedic sidekick and grumpy figure of authority who wants the good monster dead.
Monsters - Gamera and Gyaos had many appearances before this.
Music - Well duh. Of course a movie's going to have an original score. That wasn't even one of my points of complaint.
The movie is clearly meant to be a tribute to kaiju movies of the '60s because Kaneko and staff were fans. My problem is that it goes just a little too far with that.
Plot - how exactly is it exactly the same. There completely different
Characters - a lot more fleshed out
Monsters - so a movie isn't original because it had characters from previous movies?
Music - I didn't know what your points of complaint were. You said I would have liked the movie better if it was more original. I gave you examples of originality.
