A clip show of the previous Gamera films spliced together with the opening scene from Star Wars, various animes, and a film about a trio of groovy, superhero space women fighting another space woman...but this one's evil
He's pretty much just a flying prop in this movie and it's a pretty bad prop at that.
And he's the only kaiju in this film that comes from original footage so I'm not going to mention the others here outside of a brief line up:
So...all of the Showa Gamera monsters are here...this should be Daei's version of DAM right? Wrong!
It's there...people do things...occasionally while saying lines of dialogue..
Pretty craptacular I'm not going to lie
The Other Stuff:
-I was surprised to find that I don't hate this film as much as I mildly loathe it...some good stuff here, none of it involving kaiju really except
-I guess I can give some lethargic props to the fact that the kaiju footage here is edited in a very tight manner that leaves out everything but the highlights of these kaiju fights
-Ok, the Space Women are just plain dorky...they make me think of Reading Rainbow/The Magical School Bus...basically they're something you'd see on PBS
-God those anime scenes suck monkey balls...if those monkey balls were full of LSD
-So this finishes up the Showa series proper...I'm in a minority here but I'd rather watch most of these films than any Godzilla film...yep, I said it. The Showa Gamera films are more fun than most Godzilla movies, the Hesei Gamera films are better made. Gamera the Brave is a solid mix of the two.
-I'm going to try really hard not to watch this film ever again
-Ok, I changed my mind...I DO hate this film...but not as much as I hate Final Wars or Megaguirus..
