I think this is one of the best Gamera films ever made. It was the only one in the first series not to star one of those little !^%#^*^#%)&^ kids. The special effects in this entry were very good and even surpassed the special effects in Godzilla vs The Sea Monster. Barugon was a good design even though it was just a ripoff of Baragon from Frankenstein Conquers the World but it had really cool weapons like that rainbow ray and the giant tongue that would freeze everything. Most of the film revolved around Barugon and Gamera was not in it much, but it was still a good film. All I have to say to make it better is to add more fighting scenes. I still need to get a hand on the Japanese version in widescreen so I can compare it to the Sandy Frank version.
