Siskoid

Kaiju films are a guilty pleasure and none are guiltier than Gamera's. In Gamera vs. Gyaos, the giant turtle goes up against a big pterosaur that can't bear the sunlight and has, among its weapons, a supersonic scream that acts as a cutting laser. It's pretty awesome, and leads to a lot more monster gore than casual kaiju fans are used to. Unfortunately, while the big fights are big fun, the human stories are pretty dull. Jostling for attention are the prototypical little kid who has all the ideas and who screams the monsters name ad nauseum, and a plot about a land deal and whether or not villagers want to sell so a highway can run through their region. Deathly dull. I kind of tuned off when the monsters weren't on screen, but thankfully, they often were, and if there's one thing Gamera opponents don't lack, it's a variety of attacks that keeps the action interesting, Gyaos included.
