Goofs

Keisuke is brought on the expedition because he can fly a helicopter, and lands the party in a remote village near the cave. Somehow Onodera (who has no idea how to fly a helicopter) not only gets back to the ship, but gets there before Keisuke after leaving him trapped for dead in the cave. Also, the helicopter is never mentioned again. See more »

We have rainbows, giant lizards with ice breath, and very little of the title character. Still no Kenny!
11 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

This film is the sequel to the first Gamera movie and is a bit better than that film mainly due to the fact they have replaced the ultra annoying Kenny with a strange and kind of kinky island girl! So it deserves an extra point for that let me tell you. Still, it is a bit Gamera free as Gamera is seen right off the bat escaping the ultimate in plans...the Z Plan! Then he does a bit of destruction and is not seen again till the main monster of this piece, Barugon unleashes his rainbow attack and is promptly put out of action again leaving Barugon to trample through the countryside. After Gamera's initial scene the story focuses on these men who are going to go to an island to find an opal stashed by a one of the guy's brother during the war or something. This part kind of is good as they go into a cave and such, this also leads to how Barugon gets to Japan and also leads me to the question if Barugon has such a hard time with water then how the heck did he get to shore without drowning? Barugon would later appear in a film with Frankenstein's monster and in the Godzilla film where Godzilla was super evil, but he would look much different in those films than here where he looks like a lizard/dog. He expels ice breath and I find it funny that it expels ice and Gamera flame, but Barugon not Gamera is weak against water. Still, lots of monster stomping, however, not much of an ending fight and you get not one, but two close quarter fights that take way to much time. Still, attractive native girl instead of Kenny makes this one the better of the first two Gamera films.
