This new addition in the streak of children-friendly Gamera films is one of the most accessible. It is basic 1969 science-fiction and it mostly takes place on some distant star where there are no skyscrapers to destroy. The set design is limited to interiors of spaceships and random miniature buildings. The monsters are fully lit, so we can see how fake the costumes look.
Guiron beats up Gyaos pretty good, early on. If it didn’t look so much like a rubber toy, this would be troubling. Story-wise this film is pretty bad. Action-wise, though, it is everything you can wish from a kaiju film. The writers feel the need to remind us, by the mouth of two children, that Gamera is our friend. Repeatedly. The dialogue takes us by the hand from beginning to end.
The aliens look exactly like humans. This time, they wear funny hats with antennas. And guess what? They use mind control on Gyaos. Sounds familiar? As imaginative as this film is, it rashes a lot of old footage. The whole story has been done before, to a certain extent. Let’s face it, though, Gamera is more fun with kids and aliens around than with the military.
