Yongary: Monster From The Deep: Terrible Movies #156
A guy in a suit that looks suspiciously like Godzilla attacks a miniaturized, glass shot, matte-painting-ed Korea. So, for what seems like an eternity, space music plays while the camera pans through space, and finally, a crudely painted portrait of the Earth comes into view. Then, a car drives through a matte-painting of downtown futuristic space Korea carrying a couple of newlyweds who are then attacked by a sparkly light that makes them itchy because it's in the script, I guess. Well, space harp music plays, and rocket-ships dangle from strings, and someone doesn't understand plate tectonics, and that painting of the Earth shows up again, and smoke bombs stand-in for atomic explosions, and a Matchbox toy car bursts into flames as it plummets off a cliff, but it doesn't matter. All that really matters is that Yongary The Monster From the Deep appears at last from a fissure, and he just happens to be named that like it's common knowledge, and when he breathes fire on some tanks you can see the propellant nozzle in his mouth and it just makes you sad. I watched it on Netflix Instant Streaming. Here's a trailer. It's in German.
