Fun Gamera Entry
4 October 2003 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

GAMERA VS. GAOS (1967) **1/2 (D: Noriaki Yuasa) Gaos proves a tough opponent, a Rodan-like bird with a laser breath capable of cutting planes in half (and Gamera's leg!). A fun entry in the series, as Gaos is not easy to overcome and one wonders how Gamera will be able to defeat him.
