Gamera: Guardian of the Universe
A plan to dump radioactive waste at sea is disrupted when a mysterious atoll appears at the dumping location. That atoll proves to be something altogether different when hideous flying reptiles, the Gyaos, attack a nearby island-and the atoll rises from the sea. It is Gamera! The super turtle combats both a misguided military and the man-eating Gyaos, with help from a courageous naval officer, an intrepid ornithologist and a beautiful young psychic. Don't miss the most incredible slam-bang, knock-down monster slug-fest ever as Gamera turtle-waxes the evil Gyaos through downtown Tokyo in GAMERA: GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE!

This is NOT the Gamera of your childhood. This is not the silly horrible stuff you saw MST3K riff on. This is a truly great movie that surpasses most of the modern era Godzilla movies. (The director of these three 90's Gamera movies did so well that Toho brought him in to do a 2004 Godzilla movie). Of the three Heisei Gamera Trilogy movies Guardian of the Universe is probably the best all around. The monsters and effects improve with the next two, but this has the best overall stand alone story. If you have not seen this you will not be disappointed. It is a great evening in.
NOW THIS MOVIE, which I personally believe is much better the 1965 original, is definitely WORTH WATCHING. It takes away the silly sequels from its past and rebuilds itself to what it once was from the first film. DO NOT be fooled that this is remake of GAMERA VS. GYAOS. Unlike that movie, it establishes a concrete origin story about the two creatures from an ancient civilization [Atlantis or Mu]. The special effects alone are also really awesome compared to cheesey mid-late 1960s and early 1970s Gamera movies. And just like the 2014 Godzilla movie, it really makes modern age on how serious monster attacks can cause so much damage. Overall this is a movie you can really sink your teeth into.
