Gamera (1969)
Movie Review by The Undertaker

Gamera (1969) This marks the 1st appearance of everybody's favorite flame breathing, jet powered, super-turtle and you've gotta love it! Gamera has been asleep for thousands of years in his icy home before being set free by humanity (Japan gets the blame here) and goes on a rampage to stomp Tokyo. He wasn't Mr. Nice Turtle in his first film, though he still has a soft spot for kids. I guess he prefers his meat a little seasoned. Gamera flame blasts and flys around giving Japan and its military a fit until Plan Z takes our buddy deep into space. Luckily, Gamera does a good amount of destruction before being trapped inside a domed space ship and getting a one-way ticket into outer space. It wasn't his last film by any means as Gamera was freed by accident and comes back to earth in later films as its savior and protector of the children. He's had a great career and his later films our considered by many as the best kaiju ever. Many have called the older Gamera film series a poor man's Godzilla or a Godzilla wannabe. I very much disagree. Daiei studios made a great creature here that has proven to be equally as entertaining as Godzilla through the years. I have to say that Gamera always had a much meaner, rougher look than Godzilla did in films around the same time. To me, comparing these two is apples to oranges, both have their own mythos, foes, powers, and agendas. If you enjoy the movies with one monster, you're gonna enjoy the other's. I was just really impressed by this oldy and equally so by his resurrection many years later. Come on people, it's a fuckin' fire-breathing, jet-propelled turtle for cryin' out loud. What's not too love here? They got off light in this one if you ask me, that Plan Z crap should have never worked.
