Remember when Gamera movies ruled the airwaves on those "creature feature" shows on Saturday afternoons? Well, the big G has returned in all his digital glory on double feature releases from Shout Factory. GAMERA VS. GUIRON is the weakest of the two features plot-wise and the second feature, GAMERA VS. JIGER is the real gem here. Jiger happens to be a cross between a triceratops and a warthog (yes....really!) and is probably the best looking of all of Gamera's past adversaries. Jiger is asleep on an island and he wakes up and wreaks havoc when an ancient idol is removed from his resting place. The idol is transported to EXPO 70 (kind of like a world's fair) to be put on display and Jiger follows it to the mainland and creates a big headache (and a lot of destruction).Gamera to the rescue!
Lots of cardboard effects, explosions, tons of monster battles between Gamera and Jiger make this the most worthy of all the 1960's Gamera films.
Now, for the quality of the Shout factory releases. They are awesome! 500% better than those hacked up, damaged prints run on television way back when. Picture is so clear, you can even see the individual warts on Jiger's back and the various textures of Gamera's skin.
So, if you really needed to choose just one of these double features to buy, it should be this one.
