And you do not have to be, but you shouldn't just question why other people do like the performance or think it works for the film, even if Frey is not a good actor.
If we're not supposed to question one another's perspectives, that doesn't leave much room for discussions on this here discussion board...
And I put "bad actor" in quotes because I still think his deadpan style delivery fits the character he was playing and works as a good contrast to the Xilien Leader's scene chewing masterpiece.
I don't read it as a deadpan performance; to my perception, he seems to be trying
to use significant pauses and emphasis, but doing it very awkwardly.

I dont know, I think Nick Adams is THE reason to watch Monster Zero.
I mean, he probably is the best part of the movie outside any of the kaiju scenes.
I dunno, I'd factor in production design, score, and Yoshio Tsuchiya as equally appealing aspects of the movie.
Tokyo, a smoldering memorial to the unknown, an unknown which at this very moment still prevails and could at any time lash out with its terrible destruction anywhere else in the world.
