Gamera I & II Blu-Ray Review

Gamera I & II Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Gamera: Guardian of the Universe (Japanese Title: Gamera Daikaiju Kuchu Kessen) 1995 Color 103 min Not Rated Bigger. Badder. Turtlier! That giant fire-breathing turtle you loved as a kid is back with a vengeance in GAMERA: GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE. The all-new science fiction spectacular has been hailed by critic and fans alike as one of the best monster movies ever! Under the guidance of acclaimed director Shusuke Kaneko (Necronomicon) and screenwriter Kazunori Itô (Ghost In the Shell), the lean, green fighting machine has been reborn with a whole new set of tricks under his 200-foot shell. Gamera is ready for the new century with stunning state-of-the-art computer animation and dazzling special effects. The super turtle combats both a misguided military and a hideous race of man-eating flying reptiles. Aiding Gamera in his fight are a courageous naval officer, an intrepid ornithologist and a beautiful young psychic. Don t miss the mist incredible slam-bang, knock-down monster slug-fest ever filmed as Gamera turtle-waxes the evil Gyaos through downtown Tokyo in GAMERA: GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE!

Review: Gamera!  Holy crap do we love Gamera!  This new and rare blu-ray release from Mill Creek features the battling turtle in his finest!  The two-film set includes Gamera: Guardian of the Universe and Gamera 2: Attack of the Legion.

I first became familiar with Gamera through Mystery Science Theater 3000 as a kid.  They would spoof the films and even had a great theme song they made up.   Their hilarious observations really endeared me to this character and the crazy vintage Japanese monster filmmaking.

This blu-ray is absolutely fantastic!  The films look amazing in high-definition.  We’re proud to add Gamera to our film collection.  This would make a great Xmas gift for the goofball on your list!
