A Pepsi and Popcorn Movie
13 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I purchased "Gammera the Invincible" at Suncoast Videos for $5.99 plus tax. It was on the sale rack, and I was honestly shocked because I think this movie is a gem to own for those who love monster movies. It's one of those flicks that you watch late at night, with a 2-liter of Pepsi and a bowl of popcorn. Better still, this is the kind of movie you watch on a lazy day after Thanksgiving, with a Turkey sandwich and a Coke.

Anyone looking for serious things from this movie is going to be disappointed. These kind of movies as best enjoyed with an open mind. The special effects for the year this flick was made are actually very decent.
