The giant flying turtle is back for this 1995 Japanese feature where once again Gamera's intentions are misinterpreted by the military. All Gamera wants to do is take on his old enemy, Gyaos, the giant prehistoric bird who has nested atop Tokyo Tower. Written by
The comma-shaped amulet related to Gamera throughout the Hesei series is called Magatama in Japan. It was initially used as decorative jewelry and later found religious and ceremonial uses. Artifacts have been dated from approximately 1000 BCE to 500 CE. See more »
Having recently seen this "Cult Classic" (and it's only a few years old,too!)I've found it to be a true contender for Godzilla's crown!! Gamera gets the facelift he's so desperately needed from the original series (as any MST3K fan will testify to!),some better SFX,a COHERANT storyline,believable acting (!)and just sheer fun! See this movie if you love big monster movies,and see it even if you don't!!
