Great Monster Duel: Gamera vs. Barugon, The
War of the Monsters
A group of thieves travel to a remote island in order to steal a large opal from the peaceful inhabitants. But on the journey
back to Toyko, the "opal" is exposed to infrared radiation and it turns out to be an egg for a legendary creature
known as Barugon.
Meanwhile in the deep cold void of space, the capsule ment to take Gamera to the planet Mars is struck by a asteroid freeing
Back on earth, Gamera desides to face Gamera in order to help the human race threatened by the monstrous creature Barugon.
Gamera will always have a special place in my heart, ever since I was a little kid. This is a very good movie, not perfect
mind you. But very good. The only real complaint I have is for a Gamera movie, you see very little of Gamera in it.
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS)
+ PLOT (The plot of a largew opal being a monster egg is clever and original)
+ BARUGON (I like the Barugon design)
+ GREAT ACTION (There are some great action scenes)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES)
- NO GAMERA (For a movie staring Gamera, Gamera isn't in much of the movie)
- FAN BASED (If you don't like giant monster movies then you will may not like this movie)
