Army officer: Dr. Aoki, as a zoologist what would you say the beast is? Would you say it's a bird, or is it a reptile?
Dr. Aoki: I would like to say there isn't any recorded history of it...let's just call it a monster.

User Reviews

This film is awesome
13 December 2004 | by deaconscjSee all my reviews

I really wish people would stop comparing Gamera & Gojira.I would like to see a movie with Gamera,Giant Robot,The original Ultraman & Gojira team up as the Kaiju version of the fantastic 4.All of these took some serious hits to save mankind from danger.A true Kaiju fan would not put down all films.In this film Gamera gave fans what happens when Monsters really go at it.They were literally trying to kill each other.I thought this was an awesome film.The special effects in this film were very good.The details in this film were good even in the scene where the reporters were trying to get Gyao's picture and he cut the car in half with his sonic beam.The mid air battle over the baseball stadium.Those earthquakes at the beginning of the film.Let's face it for a film made in the 60's this was probably the best Kaiju films in that era.
