Description: Gamera, Japan's favorite jet-propelled giant flying turtle, was Daiei's child-friendly answer to Toho's Godzilla franchise. This decidedly juvenile staple of the 1960s became a modest success, but those early features, with cut-rate special effects and gooey child stars, rate little beyond camp nowadays. With such a legacy, his 1995 rebirth Gamera, Guardian of the Galaxy, is a delightful surprise. Now taking over the franchise, Toho comes through with an old-fashioned giant monster adventure in candy colors with excellent special effects and an attitude that straddles serious science fiction and outrageous spectacle.

" I have to say that I love the old Gamera movies. They are silly and a fun alternative to the movies from Toho. However, it's the 90's Gamera trilogy that established everyone's favorite giant turtle as more than just a Godzilla knock off. This movie (and it's sequels) completely one up everything that was already great about the Heisei Godzilla movies."
