A French archeologist is in Bangkok uncovering some ancient ruins and comes across some ruins which depict a flying creature. Years later the city is constructing subway tunnels in the same area and awaken a hibernating creature who was last seen nearly ten thousand years ago. The archeologist's half-Thai daughter is continuing her father's work but doesn't get much help from the city. After the tenth time someone made a comment about how she's a half-caste or a foreigner I was like "Enough already, I get it, people in Thailand are prejudiced". Hit me over the head, why don't you? I wanted to see more of the monster and learn less about modern Thai culture, to tell you the truth.
GARUDA tries to be a DaiKaiju (Giant Monster) movie but falls short. The creature is only twenty-feet tall and is computer generated.
