Storyline

This final installment of the recent Gamera trilogy begins with schoolgirl Ayana discovering a large egg in a cave that, according to legend, houses demons. The egg hatches into a small monster, which Ayana decides to raise and quickly develops as psychic bond with. As Ayana's monster, named Iris, grows to adulthood, the flying turtle Gamera begins to take an interest in this new potential threat. Who will be the victor in the final battle, and how much of Japan will be left standing at the end? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Quite Possibly the Finest Japanese Monster Movie Ever Made
27 December 2002 | by crazy_gollumSee all my reviews

I have been a big time Japanese Kaiju fan for many years, and this movie probably takes the cake. It is finely made, and a sight to behold. Kaneko, the director, does a great job here, though his take on Godzilla is not quite as effective in GMK.

The monster designs for Gamera, the Hyper Gyaos, and Irys are so finely done, and executed, that one has to stae in disbelief, as most of the effects rival American SFX. Gamera is a ver well designed. He looks ferocious, and yet, there is a sense off benignness in him. the Gyaos are still sinister,and the effects that they have on the planet are very well played out. But the star of the movie is Irys. This is a very well designed creature. it's a very cool kaiju, and the air battle between it and Gamera, and the final battle in the train station are incredible. No kaiju movie has ever looked this convincing. Honestly, if you can import this, you should.

The huamn charcters are not a hinderance to this movie, but a great addition. Normally, the humans in kaiju eiga are used to advance the battles between the monsters. But here, the human sub stories are so intricatly tied to the kaiju plot, that it is extremly convincing. They are convincing, and very well developed. All in all GIII: Imcomplete Battle is an excellent movie, whether your a fan of kaiju eiga, or simply want to see monsters fight each other. This is the finest he eiga has to offer.
