When an ancient statue is moved for display in Expo '70, a giant, vaguely Triceratops-like monster is released. The monster goes to Japan in pursuit of the statue and ends up battling Gamera, the giant flying turtle.
this film has much better action & is better looking than the fake looking toho crap that's an insult to a 5 year old's intelligence. the story itself, too, is an improvement over the mindless dribble in toho classics. there's a real backstory & credible motives for the scientist in this one if not why a monster from space would attack a city.
it has great attention to detail and scale with the same oversaturated colors look of old toho movies. the CGI is so good, that you might think it is an older movie at times except the jets & sets don't look like toys, but the film is faithful to the retro visual style of the 60s films.
the only real giveaway that it's CGI is the character animation. it isn't up to the standards of a full length feature, but this would make a great one if it was ever redone.
