THE PLOT:

When Tom And Akio spot a UFO landing in the night, they take a trip the following morning to find it. They find it in an empty field not far from town and decide to explore. But rule number one, don't play spaceman in a real UFO, as Tom presses the wrong button and the ship takes off back to its point of origin.

But Gamera is on their heels even if the ship is flying fastest hen he can keep up. They land on a devastated planet. Destroyed by Silver Goas. They meet two beautiful alien babes and a giant monster with a blade on his head called Guiron.

The Babes have more in mind then taking the Boys virginity. They want to eat their brains, hoping to absorb their knowledge of Earth's culture so when they escape this dying world, they can blend in on Earth. Not if Gamera has anything to say about it, he arrives and it's time for the ultimate "knife fight".

ZEDD'S OPINION:

I admit Gamera has always been a hero of mine ever since I was a kid. I liked this movie I really did. But the version they have on DVD, "ATTACK OF THE MONSTERS". They cut a key scene as Guiron uses his blade to cut up the Silver Goas. That is plain wrong and it looses points for that. Plus, some of the dubbing is kind of corny.
I GIVE IT (7 STARS)

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I admit the deleted scene disappointed me as well. But it didn't affect my opinion of it that much; let's hope that in some distant future that someone places it back. But I agree the dubbing could have been better and this movie may not be everyone's cup of tea. But I still recommend it.
AND I GIVE IT (8 STARS)

ON THE POSTIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ MONSTERS (I love the monsters in all these movies)
+ STORY (The idea of alien abduction works)
+ EFFECTS (I am always impressed with the effects in these movies)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES)

-CENSORSHIP (I hate the fact they censored Guiron slicing Silver Goas to pieces)
-CORNY DUB (They could have gotten better actors for the dubbing)

And Finally:

-NOT FOR EVERYONE (If you are not a big fan of the genre then this one is not for you)
