A volcano eruption in Japan unleashes Gaos, a monster set out to destroy everything in its path. Gamera soon arrives to battle the monster. This movie was released with two different titles and two different spellings of the villains name: Goas and Gyaos. As the collection I own has the spelling as Gaos, that's what I will stick with here. Gaos is a pretty cool looking creature, resembling a cross between a bat and a raven, with glowing yellow eyes. He spits laser-like beams from his mouth, resulting in things in being split in half.
The story in this movie is sort of weak and, of course, the special effects are pretty bad. The main kid in this one is rather annoying too, made worse by the irritating dubbing. Still, the reason for watching these movies has little to do with acting or dialogue. It’s all about the action, and that is pretty good here. Gaos is vampire-like in that he only comes out at night and is hurt by sunlight. Gamera gets pretty creative in some of the battles too. This was an okay movie that, unfortunately, slows down too much throughout, and the ending is sudden and makes no sense at all.
