DISCUSSION

A combination of dinosaurs and science fiction themes has long been a successful movie box office draw. It is generally known that dinosaurs were enormous compared to animals residing on Earth today. By exaggerating their known size in science fiction movies, directors retain a degree of truth in otherwise far-fetched plots. Most implausible about such stories is the ability of these fictitious RODAN's to resist all forms of bullets, bombs, and assorted military weaponry. As a biological entity, RODAN should readily succumb to bombs and bullets.
