The original Japanese version has a run time of 110 minutes, while the English dubbed version has a run time of 69 minutes.
Please note that the Japanese version starts out with music and a black screen for the first minute and twenty seconds.
About The Last War
The Last War is the story of two superpowers speeding toward war. In the middle are the Japanese and the people who live in Japan. We watch as the impending doom affects the lives of several regular Japanese, and we watch as the troops in the bunkers prepare to send their missiles.
What makes “The Last War” more entertaining then films of today like “Armageddon” is that the acting is better (at least the Japanese actors), and there’s just a greater sense of style in films from this era then what we see today.
Owning a copy of the original widescreen subtitled format makes for a fascinating curio piece and also the chance to see some great special FX in full splendor. In the original Japanese version of The Last War, there are some great SFX sequences by Japan’s master Eiji Tsubaraya, who was responsible for all the Godzilla movies.
