Trivia

Post 11 March 2011, there is a lot more irony in the girls standing in front of Sendai Station and saying that New York is dangerous. In fact, the whole Sendai destruction sequence is somewhat disturbing. See more »

Goofs

The "My name is Legion" quote is from Mark 5:9, not Mark 9:8 as claimed by one of the soldiers (in the dubbed DVD version). See more »

Quotes

Colonel Watarase: [in the second English soundtrack version on the DVD] Well, if we're trapped in an ass sandwich, I'll break out the Miracle Whip.

The best kaiju movie ever made...
20 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...at least IMNSHO. It was high time someone thought up an insect kaiju that could be tough,scary,and interesting(Kumonga,Mothra and Kamacuras? Give me a break.Only Megaguirus came close to being interesting.) There was so much to like about this movie-intelligent dialog(even after the dubbing),great fight scenes,and the fact that the emphasis was placed on the monsters,and not the actors. No silly new "ultimate monster fighting weapon that gets trashed in 30 seconds"-just get those idiots from the JSDF out of the way,and let Gamera take care of business.But the big G had his hands full here-the Legion swarm were bad enough,but the mother creature was awesome,and didn't roll over when she got hurt. The mandible blasts were great,but those red "whip" beams that went right thru Gamera were awesome. I even liked the Legion's voice-it sounded like a rusty gate opening! Gamera was incredible,and that fireball slide trick he did was the bomb. With a new Gamera movie coming out next year,and Toho making it plain from the ending of Godzilla:Final Wars that they have no intention of waiting 5-10 years for a new Godzilla movie,I,along with many other kaiju fans,demand that Toho and Deiei quit fooling around,and make the deal-Godzilla vs.Gamera.What else is left?
