The super turtle combats both a misguided military and the Gyaos, a hideous race of man-eating flying reptiles. Aiding Gamera in his fight are a courageous naval officer (Tsuyoshi Ihara), an intrepid ornithologist (Shinobu Nakayama) and a beautiful young psychic (Ayako Fujitani). Don’t miss the most incredible slam-bang, knockdown monster slugfest ever filmed as Gamera turtle-waxes the evil Gyaos through downtown Tokyo in GAMERA: GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE!

From the same crew who brought us the effect-juiced GAMERA: GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE now comes an even more CGI-enhanced adventure for our tortugan hero. A freak meteor shower near Sapporo, Japan brings with it more than just a killer light how. Electrical problems, over-grown plant life and a whole slew of rather irritable critters also drop in to threaten the human race. Local science instructor Midori Honami (Miki Mizuno) is called to assist the brave Colonel Watarase (Toshiyuki Nagashima) in the military’s oft-confused attempts to save mankind. They must find a way to successfully combine efforts with their reptilian protector, or both will face ultimate destruction from the Earth’s bugged-out invaders. Join the battle as Gamera and his bipedal pals work to repel the attack of Legion!
