Gamera: Guardian of the Universe (Japanese Title: Gamera Daikaiju Kuchu Kessen) 1995 Color 103 min Not Rated Bigger. Badder. Turtlier! That giant fire-breathing turtle you loved as a kid is back with a vengeance in GAMERA: GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE. The all-new science fiction spectacular has been hailed by critic and fans alike as one of the best monster movies ever! Under the guidance of acclaimed director Shusuke Kaneko (Necronomicon) and screenwriter Kazunori Itô (Ghost In the Shell), the lean, green fighting machine has been reborn with a whole new set of tricks under his 200-foot shell. Gamera is ready for the new century with stunning state-of-the-art computer animation and dazzling special effects. The super turtle combats both a misguided military and a hideous race of man-eating flying reptiles. Aiding Gamera in his fight are a courageous naval officer, an intrepid ornithologist and a beautiful young psychic. Don t miss the mist incredible slam-bang, knock-down monster slug-fest ever filmed as Gamera turtle-waxes the evil Gyaos through downtown Tokyo in GAMERA: GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE!

    Gamera's first BD release in the US is great. While not entirely perfect, as it's lacking any extras and other small flaws, the video is excellent and audio very good as well. My only complaint, as stated, are the lack of extras, and some of the onscreen Japanese text goes untranslated (all of the dialogue is subtitled, though). Given the extremely cheap price and quality I'd highly recommend this to all kaiju fans, and monster fans in general. These are two of the best Gamera films and the BD quality only makes them better.

    Two of the best Japanese monster movies in one Blu-Ray package. Though I love Godzilla as the king of the monster, as movies, the Heisei Gamera series beats most Godzilla movies hands down. GAMERA is probably the most realistic (as in, how people and the government would respond if giant monsters appear) movie ever made. Its sequel, LEGION, expands on the idea and how realistically the military would respond to giant monsters, strategically, as well as legally. All in the crisp Blu-Ray glory.

    The GAMERA Trilogy of the 1990's is regarded far-and-wide as some of the best monster movies ever made, recapturing the long-lost essence of the 1960's "Monster Boom" which gave us classics like MOTHRA VS. GODZILLA, ATRAGON and GHIDORAH: THE THREE HEADED MONSTER. The Gamera Trilogy boasts strong human characters, great effects for a budgeted 90's monster series, and a spectacular finale in the third film that is one of the best genre deconstructions to be found on either side of the pacific. Gamera himself is a character with a defined arc - his reconnection with humanity after his long sleep, his climactic battle which strains his relationship with mankind, losing his connection as well as his sympathy, and his eventual redemption. It's darn good stuff.

    While it's really, really nice to have both of these films available in a slick, cleaned-up format (as opposed to the rather sinfully bad transfers on the ADV releases), it's unfortunate that it's only two of the three, and it's a rather barebones release. It's also a shame that all three films couldn't be released in a single package, perhaps as a three-disc set to maximize quality.

    Still, for the price and for the films themselves, this is a definite must-buy. Ridiculously cheap and nice transfers to boot, it's a welcomed addition to the collection. Not to mention the promised GAMERA 3 Blu-ray on the way that should hopefully be a meatier release. Just get it! :)

    As some have mentioned, it has horrible subs. The movie looked beautiful, but there were no English sub-titles period on either movies. On the back of the case, it plainly states English subs, but mine had none. There was no menu button to choose a language either. Trying to figure out what was going on took too much concentration to enjoy the movie. There was some English language from a female news person on the tv. There was also a newspaper that showed English words that gave a little indication of what was happening.

    Amazon will be refunding my money. Would have rather had the movies instead. I would have given the movies a higher rating if I could have had good English sub-titles. What a total let down.

    I gave this a high mark simply because I love these two movies and there are some improvements --- The blu-ray does a lot for GOTU as far as picture quality but falls short on "Legion"
    I really did not notice much in the difference on "Legion" mostly because my 240hz tv and Blu-ray player already does an incredible job of upconverting ---- so I can see the advantage for people who have 60hz tv's. The big difference on GOTU is the 16:9 aspect ratio --- which is a great improvement from the DVD version.

    Now for the bad ----- No special features, at all! Advent of Legion is one of my favorite movies of all time and one of the reasons is because of the "Lake Texarkana Gamera" version on the DVD. Don't get me wrong, I love the movie as is but the "LTG" version is a riot and losing that as a special feature kind of sucks.

    All in all, it is worth the money, just don't expect your favorite special features or much of a menu at all ---- still, for the average fan who wants better picture quality for two of the best Japanese monster films out there, you won't be wasting your money.

    A reboot of the classic movies from the 1960s, the new Gamera films are lot's of fun. Once you get past the concept of a gigantic flying turtle (rocket propelled) that walks on 2 legs, the underlying stories aren't bad. Great special effects and good image quality on the blu-ray version. Worth buying for the price. Now if they would just release Gamera vs. Iris.

    This BluRay contains the first two movies in the revamped Gamera trilogy from the late 1990s. These films have never looked better - no extras exist on this disc but be sure to get the Gamera 3 BLuRay as it has a nearly three hour extra feature which covers all three films. You cannot go wrong with this upgrade.
