Storyline

This final installment of the recent Gamera trilogy begins with schoolgirl Ayana discovering a large egg in a cave that, according to legend, houses demons. The egg hatches into a small monster, which Ayana decides to raise and quickly develops as psychic bond with. As Ayana's monster, named Iris, grows to adulthood, the flying turtle Gamera begins to take an interest in this new potential threat. Who will be the victor in the final battle, and how much of Japan will be left standing at the end? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Pure amazement...
26 September 1999 | by (Glendale, CA) – See all my reviews

This movie took my breath away as no other ever has. I'm sorry most Americans will never get to see this on the big screen, because it's awe-inspiring. Even on video, this film is astounding. Possibly the best special effects movie ever.
