Ahh, the Gamerathon continues. This time out, well, another barely-show by the big turtle. I get why they do that, focus on the new threat, save time and money, then bring out the star to wrap things up. But it's frustrating to watch a Gamera movie with very little turtle meat to it. ;)
But this movie ends up being about a road being built, and the construction efforts running afoul of a volcanoe, stirring a creature from beneath the surface and he comes up and causes problems. Not as great of an origin story as Barugon, but hey. They can't all be winners.
Sooo many cheesy, annoying voices in these movies. They actually start to hurt after awhile.
"Operation Goofy is now in effect." Which is such an understatement. You gotta love a plan that involves setting a mountain on fire to summon Gamera, while keeping the creature distracted by a diffusing blood fountain. It looked amazing though, for the time. But boy, then it started to look, well, yes. Goofy. But hey, it was the highlight of this movie. It definitely made the movie stand out, and gave some great fodder for the guys.
