Critic Reviews for Gamera tai daiakuju Giron (Attack of the Monsters)(Gamera vs. Guiron)

  • The morbidly curious would be better off watching American producer Sandy Frank's VHS dub from the '80s; at least that's so outlandishly incompetent that it's funny.

Audience Reviews for Gamera tai daiakuju Giron (Attack of the Monsters)(Gamera vs. Guiron)

    As ridiculous as these monster films get, Gamera vs. Guiron was actually more decent than others in the series, thanks to a somewhat sensible (monster film wise) storyline.

    Poor Gamera, he just doesn't seem to catch a break just when he was making progress with Gamera Vs. Gayos his later movie are aimed at children. With his being the second Gamera aimed at children like the previous entry Gamera Vs. Viras (or Destroy All Planets) it offers more the same. Gamera Vs. Guiron (or Attack of the Monsters) is about two boys, who stumble upon a flying saucer. The boys both step in without hesitating, and are whisked away to a planet in Earth's orbit but on the exact opposite side of the Sun with Gamera being the only one who save from the deadly inhabitants. Once again children are our main characters and they're even more annoying then before. Storytelling hasn't changed much as it feels too similar to the previous entry with the fact both involve annoying kids as the main characters, stock footage being used (some in black white despite the movie being in color), the adults aren't smart, and unfortunately in this one we get more of Guiron than we do Gamera. While on the topic of storytelling, it's too campy and silly for my taste and trying make a campy giant turtle monster movie doesn't work for this series. What's unfortunate is that there isn't much monster brawling and the final fight is disappointing. The story has bad dialogue, human characters that still haven't improved after four movies, and finally a monster movie aimed at kids doesn't equal entertainment for adults. Now time for the monsters since the human characters aren't worth talking much. We got Guiron who has a blade in his head and could apparently throw throwing-stars without using any hands, weird. What's weirder is that Guiron is consider a watch dog by the two aliens on that planet, lucky, I wish I had a watch dog like Guiron. We also got Gayos making a very short appearance as he looses laughably fast to Guiron who barely moved with one hit. Then finally the only reason the series survived, Gamera, who once again gives one over-the-top moment (as he does in every movie) when he does gymnastic during a monster battle. Picture it, a giant turtle doing gymnastic is something you simply can't take serious. Even though the monsters aren't in for much of the movie they make it enjoyable, to bad they didn't get a bigger portion of the movie. Gamera Vs. Gurion (or Attack of the Monsters) suffers similar issues that plague the series with boring human characters and not so interesting story. With Gamera saving the planet once again from another monster, will our favorite gaint fire breathing pocket power flying turtle ever a good movie, maybe.

    So silly and campy, but so much fun at the same time. Guiron is probably the strangest Gamera villain in the franchise, who has an axe for a head and can shoot shurikens. The two kid protagonists, Akio and Tom, make for pretty good duo. The plot is almost like a sci-fi retelling of Hansel and Gretal. The film makes it interesting seeing the duo's efforts to escape the two alien woman. The two alien woman are good villains. The setting on the planet Terra is charming for its home-made feel. One of my favorite moments of the franchise is when Gamera does a gymnastics flip on a conveniently placed bar. It is hilarious and simply classic. The only real flaw is the film's pacing slows down whenever it randomly cuts to scenes on Earth. The scenes on Earth are inconsequential to the main plot on Terra. Like in the previous film, this film also has a scene where Gamera's memory is examined. Thankfully, it only goes on for a few minutes, it is not as tediously drawn out like the last one. Not the best entry, but delightfully cheesy and enjoyable.

    Two boys young boys fly in a spaceship to a hidden planet on the opposite side of the sun from us where two alien women want to eat their brains; *SPOILER!* Gamera saves them. The Gamera series was hitting rock bottom at this point, with the monster battles becoming shorter and more ridiculous (this is the movie where the giant turtle takes a few spins on the gymnastics bar). More for lovers of bad movies than for monster fans.
