I have seen this film once before and I decided to give it another try on the Blu-ray, and holy shit, the film is even worse than I recall. Another 82 minutes of my life I will never get back.
Aliens come to Earth and attempt to take it over with the help of their giant squid-like leader, Viras. Two annoying as hell children and Gamera come to the rescue.
I have patience for a lot of low budget films no matter how bad they are, but good God, this one really taxed my patience. The acting by everyone all around is pathetic and I have never been as tired of children as I was watching this drivel.
Nothing bothers me more than seeing children portrayed as geniuses and adults as blithering idiots, and when watching a monster fight, these two annoying boys won't shut the fuck up and keep yelling instructions to Gamera!!! Nothing makes me want to stick sharp pokers in my ears more than that.
I found myself watching this and constantly checking my timer to see how much longer it had to run. That my friends, is a bad sign. After the first three films this is a hell of a let down. I told a friend after watching it I wanted to poke out my eyes as it was that bad.
I have never felt this way about any low budget film, but everyone has his or her breaking point, and mine has been reached with this turgid giant turtle junk. I will be reviewing the other Gamera films on Blu-ray, and I don't think there was another one worse than this, but I could be wrong.
I wouldn't recommend this film even to my ex-mother-in-Law let alone anyone reading this blog, but is you're a masochist you might enjoy 82 minutes of painful film watching.
