If you are a Godzilla or Gamera fan, you owe it to yourself to own these films! This trilogy blows the late Godzilla out of the water and transcends the B-Movie barrier to become excellent cinema all around. Great effects, great story, memorable characters, and an epic score by Kou Otani (Haibane Renmei) make for a phenomenal show. One final note: These films are not R Rated despite their listing, they are unrated. There is hardly any swearing, and violence is about PG-13. So if you are a parent, no worries. The Package:
Gamera 1&2 are on one blur-ray, while Gamera 3 is on the other. All the films look great, and the audio has the option of english or japanese. My only gripe is that for some reason Gamera 3 has timing issues with the subtitles. It's not horrible, but its irritating to hear someone speak and then the subtitles show up 10-15 seconds later. Of course, this can be remedied by watching the dub. The subtitle problem was addressed by Mill Creek, so I do not know if the other copies are affected, but mine was. The Bottom Line:
Buy these and you will not be disappointed. Gamera is the new king of kaiju.
