Gamera Nears The End, 3 May 2014
Author: AaronCapenBanner from North America

Seventh Gamera film is rock bottom nonsense: once again, more aliens decide to invade the Earth, first by attacking a moon base, then using their hypnotic powers to control Earth scientists, but their children come to the rescue(with a subplot involving an extended chase sequence at Sea World that seems lifted from a comedy sketch of some kind) They call upon the help from their friend, and Earth protector Gamera, who ends up doing battle with Zigra, a giant shark/swordfish hybrid that also can be used to play the Gamera theme music... Woefully childish and inept film was the last one for nine years, until an even more ignoble final send off!
