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
Why is it that when ever an American studio gets hold of a kaiju movie they feel compelled to dub it? From my perspective this usually completely destroys what otherwise is a good movie. And so it is with Gamera.
The movie itself is a great revival of Gamera. A good story line, well acted, decent SPFX. Who would have ever thought that a giant flying turtle could challenge Godzilla for the tittle of King of the Monsters?
If you can get hold of a sub-titled version, do so. It is the only way to watch it. And don't forget to continue with the other two recent Gamera movies. Same director and quality. Together they make quite a trilogy.
