Gamera: The Giant Monster

Gamera: The Giant Monster is a 1965 Japanese monster movie. Either you like monster movies or you don't. I do. Besides, this one is a child-friendly turtle, and how can you not like that?

The reviews of the original film aren't especially positive, but it did better than expected and spawned a number of sequels. It's got a lot of spoken infodump material, where some scientist explains all about this new method guaranteed to destroy the monster interspersed with segments showing that method failing. There is a subplot involving an adorable child who loves turtles, but those scenes are few.

In 1966 it was re-edited for an American audience as Gammera the Invincible:



with Brian Donlevy in new scenes. This one is dubbed in English.
