Gamera the giant sabretooth turtle, who has been shot into space at the end of 1965's Gamera, has been freed from its rocketship by a meteor & has returned to earth to cause a bit more havoc & destroy a few dams ...

In other news, Ichiro Hirata (Akira Natsuki) tells his brother Keisuke (Kojiro Hongo) & friends Onodera (Koji Fujiyama) & Kawajiri (Yuzo Hayakawa) about an opal he has hidden in New Guinea during the war, & where to find it ... so Keisuke, Onodera & KAwajiri set out to retrieve the opal, despite the warnings of the local natives & their civilized leader Dr Matsushita (Ichiro Sugai).

Once the opal is found though, Onodera shows little hesitation in killing Kawajiri & leaving Keisuke in a caved in tunnle to die, just so the opal is all his. With the help of the natives & especially native girl Cara (Kyoko Enami) survives though, emerges from it a changed man & promises Cara to take her to Japan & help her find & return the opal.

Meanwhile in Japan, the opal, exposed to heat, has turned out not to be an opal at all but a dinosaur's egg, & of course, once hatched the dinosaur grows to giant proportions almost instantly & & does what dinosaurs do best ... bring destruction to another one of these Japanese cities.

But the energy beam the dinosaur, from now on called Barugon, shoots from its back that looks suspiciously like a rainbow, lures Gamera, who feeds on energy, to Barugon &, having nothing better to do this afternoon, the monsters start to fight ... & eventually, Barugon can defeat Gamera withthe help of some sort of instant freeze he shoots from the tip of his obscenely long tongue (eat your heart out, Gene Simmons).

From now on, the military, helped by Keisuke & Cara, try pretty much everything to defeat Barugon, from luring it into a lake with the help of a giant diamond (Barugon is allergic to water but crazy for diamonds - don'T ask) to reflecting his rainbow beam twith a giant mirror, but nothing works ... until Gamera re-awakens & does the honours of finishing off Barugon. It seems Gamera has turned a good guy now.


Pretty routine Japanese monster movie, with a silly non monster subplot (Keisuke & friends hunting for the opal), rubber suits & miniatures that range from outrageously shoddy to pretty good, visible strings in some special effects scenes, an almost childish love for destruction, ... but if you are a fan of all these thing (as I am), you might like this movie.
