Gamera 3 - Revenge of Iris
Still reeling after the hard-fought battle to repel Legion, Japan is now reminded of a deadly foe from the past. The Gyaos have returned, and this time the ornery man-eating birds have not only increased their numbers, but also added a menacing new member-Iris-to their destructive little club. Raised by a young girl whose parents Gamera accidentally squished, the flying, blood-sucking squid monster Iris takes her learned hatred and goes out on the warpath. Dr. Nagamine and Inspector Osaka are reunited to help Gamera in his relentless quest to protect and save the human race. Can Gamera ground the Gyaos? Can the turtle tie up the terrible tentacles? Do the hapless humans and the rowdy reptile have what it takes to thwart the revenge of Iris?

While each film is a stand alone and may be in theory watched in any order, you will be best served by watching them in order to fully appreciate how some of the characters change and evolve across the full trilogy. The films are dark gritty and brutal with some of the best giant monster fights ever put on film. They don't look like people in suits stomping on models. They are so perfectly shot as to make you feel that the monsters are on the next block.
Revenge of Iris is the third and final movie in the series (sadly the fourth was never made). It deals largely with the aftermath of the battles in the prior movies. A young traumatized girl who lost her family during the earlier Gamera fights stumbles across another "Guardian Monster" that was similarly traumatized and damaged by Gamera. They bond and a reign of destruction and revenge begins. The effects in this movie are the best of the servies and quite frankly the best scene in any movie of this type until Pacific Rim and Godzilla 2014 hit the screens. If you enjoy Pacific Rim or Godzilla 2014 you will love these three Gamera movies
There is a another Gamera movie as well, All of these were great. There is one other I recommend that is older, but it is called Gamera, Return of the Giant Monsters. Also great for those of us who love Japanese Monsters.
Please make another Gamera movie in this style.
9IN OTHER WORDS) THAT! WHICH IS UNIMAGINABLE.
The story is decent and can carry you through the movie without too many cringes.
The DVD mastering is excellent with top notch video and audio. The Outakes are priceless as you watch an old Japanese man inviting a scientist to "come on down and have some chicken and grits" while his wife hacks at a dead Gyaos.
