Without the Robots it's Just a Guy in a Rubber Turtle Suit
27 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is utterly unwatchable if you don't see the version with robots making smart-ass remarks during the movie. This movie teeters on the edge of so-bad-it's-good, but it never quite makes it over that edge. It took MST3K to figure out these movies were made for children, and I feel sorry for Japanese kids of the 60s. This first Gamera film introduces the character and is the only movie in the series where Gamera is the bad guy, although the annoying Kenny continually points out that Gamera is good (he destroyed a lighthouse and at least one whole city, you know, like all good guys do). We learned that the million-year-old giant sabretooth turtle consists on flames as it's primary diet. Flames. And we learned that in the old days, the world powers could work together and construct a rocket capable of firing a 100' turtle monster to Mars in a matter of days. Good times.
