wow, be careful what you wish for, huh. there are some really cool things to like about the movie, and that's what I will be concentrating on. here we have the opening sequence, which is a several cool miniatures on a moon set. explosions, animated rays, it's got everything!
I have said this before, had AIP had this movie dubbed by Titra it would be much more tolerable. I can't imagine why it wasn't, since it was released the same time Smog Monster was, but perhaps they just passed on it. it really has one of the worst dubs that has ever been done.
it was finally released over here by good ol' Sandy Frank, in it's fullscreen version. I owned a tape, but I think I have actually watched the movie once or twice. I bought the Neptune Media version as well, but only watched it once or twice. I didn't even remember much of the plot, which is not a bad thing.
Gamera gets knocked out by Zigra twice, which is nothing unusual for him in his movies. here he gets revived by lightning, which is a cool shot. and it must be a deep bay, as they are not far from the shore and he's neck deep.
does fried outer space shark taste good? this suit allows Gamera to actually breathe fire while walking, which is pretty darn cool as well. the sets are all really nice, it's just the people are... well, just dull.
and Zigra looks cool. he's also annoyed that humankind is ruining our planet. a widescreen presentation makes this movie look really cool.
