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
Gamera was being filmed by someone when he was attacking the stadium. Some of the resulting film can be seen and it is in black in white. The original Gamera movie was in black and white in 1965. See more »
I liked this movie the best out of all the '90s Gamera movies. I think this one had the best actors and acting which kept the story alive, and believable. Daiei always had better casting compared to Toho in their movies, and trend continues with this series.
Cinematography is few notches above other Japanese kaijyu films shot in color, and integration between special effects and other scenes are tight too.
What really makes this movie so good is that it actually has plots, and it's not just about mindless monsters destroying cities.
Actor Steven Segal's daughter Ayako Fujitani makes her debut as an actress as Asagi Kusanagi who has ties with Gamera in this movie.
This movie stands to repeat viewing and doesn't get old. Destined to become a classic kaijyu movie.
