THE PLOT:

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 Gamera.

Back on earth, Gamera desides to face Gamera in order to help the human race threatened by the monstrous creature Barugon.

THE OPINION:

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.
(8 STARS)

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)

And Finally:

- FAN BASED (If you don't like giant monster movies then you will may not like this movie)
