Fills out the 90's trilogy nicely, to bad it had to end., 26 November 2011
Author: Aaron1375

I enjoyed all three movies in this set of films of Gamera from the 90's. This one had only a couple of issues or it could have been the best of the bunch, instead of being on par with the other two. One, one the blu ray I had the subtitles were kind of off in that it would not show what the characters were saying all the time. I ended up missing huge tracts of dialog thus being a bit confused about these two characters who seemed shady, but I just could not tell what their motivations were. Another problem is the fights just are not as good as the one's in Attack of Legion. Still, I liked the opposing monster's origin in this one as it is not just a random type attack as the Legion monsters seemed to be, but an off shoot of the monster Gyaos, whom Gamera faced off in the first film. In fact, he faces off against a couple here too. A young girl whose parents died during Gamera's fight with Gyaos hates the giant turtle because she blames him for their deaths (though I blame the cat). She wants revenge, but how is a girl going to fight the super powerful giant turtle? Well she ends up entering a forbidden cave and finds a monster, a cute critter she names Iris. Meanwhile, the rest of the world is being overrun by a bunch of the Gyaos monsters. Suffice to say things are getting out of control as the humans still try to decide if Gamera is friend or foe, though Gamera does not exactly endear himself during his fight with Gyaos in a crowded city. Good film, just needed a bit more on the final fight and I could have used better subtitling on the disc though that really is not the fault of the makers of the film. The ending is somewhat somber, and leaves you wondering what is going to happen, and it is an answer you are going to have to come up with on your own. Are you a positive thinker, or negative one?
