A nuclear explosion in the far north unleashes Gamera, the legendary flying turtle, from his sleep under the ice.

Ah classic Gamera. Well this is the first Gamera movie in a relatively large series. Generally the first movie is the best movie in the series, but not so with Gamera. Actually the latest ones are the best, while this one is one of the worst.
The plot revolves around a turtle that can shoot flames from its shell to fly around like a flying saucer... seriously. It's that bad. I really could get into a very large post about all the things wrong with this movie, the first of them being the annoying main character/kid who is entirely stupid and is trying to protect Gamera from the military, while Gamera kills innocent people. The kid says "Gamera saved my life" but Gamera never did! The kid was standing on a tower, Gamera smashed the top of the tower where the kid was standing, and as the kid was about to fall, Gamera catches him, and then drops him. Doesn't sound like a friendly turtle.
Either way this movie is pretty awful and the ending is the funniest thing in movie history. I honestly saw it coming, but it was still funny.
