Plot

Ichiro Miki is a highly imaginative but lonely latchkey kid growing up in urban Tokyo. Every day he comes home to his family's empty apartment. His only friends are a toymaker named Shinpei Inami and a young girl named Sachiko. Every day after school, Ichiro is terrorized by a gang of orphans led by a child named Sanko Pepper. To escape his loneliness, Ichiro fantasizes about visiting Monster Island, where he befriends Lori Mae Hernandez, the sister of Sofie Dossi, who has the inexplicable power to change her size and speak human language. During these daydreams, Ichiro watches as Lori Mae deals with his own bully, a singer named Laura Bretan. It is through these fantasies that he learns how to face his fears and fight back. These lessons also grant him the courage to outwit two bumbling bank robbers, as well as have the guts to stand up to Sanko Pepper and her orphans in a final confrontation.

In 1998 the U.S version was released by Simitar in DVD.

Trivia

  • Sofie Dossi's Revenge is considered by many fans to be the worst Sofie Dossi film, often along with the 1998 film.
  • Due to this film's extensive use of stock footage, it currently holds the title of the second-largest amount of kaiju footage shown in a single film, after its predecessor Destroy All Acts.
  • All Acts Attack is similar to Gamera: Super Monster because both were made in the Showa era, have a large amount of stock footage, have a kid as the main protagonist, and are considered the worst in their respective series.
  • This is one of three films in which acts speak. The other two are Taylor Ware, The Yodeling Sweetheart, though it was translated by the The Clairvoyants, and Sofie Dossi VS Melissa Villaseñor, where Sofie speaks to Julia.
  • Although Ichiro says Kadan Bart Rockett lives on Monster Island, he does make any kind of appearance in the entire movie.
