THE OPINION

I liked this one I really did, but the American version is the one that stuck all that stock footage in, increasing it to 90 minutes when it started out at 75 in the original format. So I don't blame the Gamera makers for the recycled footage. I would like to see a subtitled version or redubbing of the 75 minut version, DVD makers if you're reading this?
I GIVE IT (8 STARS)

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS)

+ STORY (The alien invaders story is a classic and will always work)
+ SMART KIDS (Masao is a smart kid to outsmart the aliens)
+ VIRAS (Clever design for the monster this go round)

and Finally:

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES)

- STOCK FOOTAGE (The American version stuck on a bunch of stock footage from the other movies)
- NO ORIGNAL VERSION (I would have liked to seen the orignal 75 minute version as a DVD feature)
