Movie Info

If you know your Japanese giant-monster flicks, you'll know that Gamera is a huge, mercurial flying turtle. Like Godzilla and Mothra before him, Gamera hasn't always been on the side of the humans, but he's been known to save the earth from time to time by warding off even more ferocious monstrosities. Enough Gamera films had been made by 1980 to allow Gamera, Super Monster to rely extensively upon stock footage from earlier productions. To accommodate these excerpts, the plot contrives to have evil extraterrestrial try to rid the world of Gamera once and for all by unleashing all the monsters he's battled in the past. Mach Fumiake appears in the new "bridging" footage. Originally titled Uchu Daikaijuu Gamera, the film was also released as Super Monster Gamera. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    A movie in which Gamera faces all his past foes in one film, the concept alone should have made for an interesting flick. However, all the footage of the monsters is stock footage. So basically you are watching all of Gamera's battles from his previous films, which is not a movie but merely a glorified clip-show. The plot is only their to connect the stock footage sequences in a very contrived manner. If I wanted to watch Gamera's past battles I would either watch those movies again or look them up on youtube. The alien spaceship is a such a blatant rip-off of the Imperial Star Destroyer, that I'm surprised that George Lucas did not sue somebody. This movie was supposed to save the studio from bankruptcy but it ended up putting the final nail in their coffin because the movie flopped upon release. This movie is the "Godzilla's Revenge" of the Gamera franchise, it is the absolute low-point of the series. It is awful no matter how you look at it.
