THE PLOT:

There is a small girl who lost her Mother in the last Gamera fight with the Goas, she hates Gamera and blames him for it and will do anything for revenge. So she teams up with a strange monster she finds in the woods, which she dubs Iris. Iris is a growing girl, a very big growing girl as she starts her own rampage as part of a plot to lure Gamera into the open to kill him.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

First of all, she needs to get over herself. It was Gamera's fault, it was the Goas. If there was no Goas attack Toyko there'd be no Gamera there either. Second, I normally like the newer Gamera movies, but I got to admit for the first time in like ever I was disappointed with a Gamera movie. The characters were weak, the setup took forever and the ending was anticlimactic. All, and all a disappointment, 6 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd on this one, to quote a famous character "Worst Gamera movie ever!". I mean you don't end a movie that way unless you intend to pick it up right away with the new movie which should have already been made or on the drawling board and what I can see it was not. The newest Gamera movie which didn't come out until 2006 doesn't remotely look like it's connected to this, so I'm sorry but I will have to give it 3 STARS.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (- HITS):

+ EFFECTS (As good as the first two new Gamera movies.)
+ IRIS (Cool monster.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- WEAK CHARACTERS (The characters were kind a weak.)
- IRIS (The name is weak, we have Baragon and Zigra, now we have Iris. What's the monster in Gamera The Brave, Sue Ellen?)
- ENDING (The way they leave it open just never to continue it just blows.)

...AND FINALLY....

- FAN BASED (If you aren't a fan, or even if you are a fan, you may not like or be disappointed by this one.)
