Rodan follows the havoc a prehistoric creature can inflict on modern people. Two Rodans, mutated pterosaurs, are disturbed by mining operations and awaken from their centuries-long sleep. Miners have been disappearing and soon the culprit is discovered. Giant insects were resting underneath the earth and have been disturbed. Shigeru (Kenji Sahara) and a team kill the insect but an earthquake opens a passage to an underground cavern where a giant egg is about to hatch. The flying reptile destroys the mining village and goes on a rampage around the South Pacific, destroying the Philippines and Sasebo. He is soon joined by a second Rodan. The two can emit sonic booms that destroy all structures in their path and can breathe concentrated blasts of wind from their mouths. Weapons seem to have little effect on the terrible duo. A last ditch attack manages to injure one of the Rodans, giving the people hope for survival. The film was produced by Toho Studios.moreless
