A meteor is on a collision course with the earth and it's up to a group of scientists to find a way to stop it. That is the premise behind this very well made Toho film directed by Ishiro Honda.
This was the Japanese language version and the giant Walrus scene was intact, but it only appears for a very few minutes and really takes nothing away from the story itself.
Kenjo Sahara and the always sexy Kumi Mizuno star and if you're a Japanese film buff you won't want to miss this if you can find it. This film has been screaming for a DVD release for years now.
