More monster thrills from Japan
22 November 2005 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

Gammera the Invincible was the first of the Gammera movies form Japan and I found this great fun.

A nuclear bomb which explodes in the frozen wastes of the Arctic wakes up the giant turtle Gammera and he starts a trail of destruction. He destroys a ship, lighthouse (echoes of The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms here), power station and then heads for Tokyo. The military try their best efforts to kill him but don't succeed. They get rid of him in the end by shipping him off to Mars in a rocket. But that is definitely not the last we will see of Gammera...

Like Godzilla, Gammera is played by a man in a monster suit.

The cast includes Albert Dekker (Dr Cyclops) and Brian Donlevy (The Quatermass Experiment, Quatermass 2).

This movie is a must for all monster fans out there. Fantastic.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
