The US video version (the print used also on the Region 1 DVD) superimposes black boxes with green English text within them over any Japanese text. ADV Films, the American distributor, did not use this same technique in the two sequels. See more »
I liked this movie the best out of all the '90s Gamera movies. I think this one had the best actors and acting which kept the story alive, and believable. Daiei always had better casting compared to Toho in their movies, and trend continues with this series.
Cinematography is few notches above other Japanese kaijyu films shot in color, and integration between special effects and other scenes are tight too.
What really makes this movie so good is that it actually has plots, and it's not just about mindless monsters destroying cities.
Actor Steven Segal's daughter Ayako Fujitani makes her debut as an actress as Asagi Kusanagi who has ties with Gamera in this movie.
This movie stands to repeat viewing and doesn't get old. Destined to become a classic kaijyu movie.
