GAMERA: GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE (1995)

Back in his heyday, Gamera the giant flying turtle never had it so good. This kick ass reboot of the campy Daiei series produced in the late 60s and early 70s eliminates all of the ultra cheesy trappings that populated those flicks. They have been replaced with engaging characters, impressive special effects, a streamlined Gamera and a modern Kaiju battle full of colliding monsters and grade A destruction. Most importantly, there are no whining kids for Gamera to protect; an annoyance so prevalent in the original films. 

 

GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE  helped usher in a new generation of Kaiju that impress technically while still managing to retain the charming qualities of the genre’s golden era.
