This is a really fun monster movie about a giant flying lizard that lives in rooftops of New York. Then an out of work pianist happens to find the nest of the giant lizard, but instead of just getting help he refuses to tell anyone unless they give him a sum of money. Of course things don't work out quite as planned and the monster runs wild. It's relatively bloody, it has a great sense of humor and it's entirely entertaining. The effects aren't terrible but we sort of get the same shots sometimes. The overhead scenes of New York are great as well as the actual characters. It's an interesting take on the "Godzilla" thing and quite a delight!
