This sequel lacks the impact of Honda’s classic, but Oda’s narrative does deliver enough action and destruction to satisfy any Kaiju fan.
A timeless classic monster movie.
“An extremely well-structured genre-blend that does not only provides the laughs and giggles with its pleasant political satire, but also allows the spectator to immerge himself into the tension that mark the attempts of dealing with the carcass.”
Higuchi and Anno deliver an impressive love letter to their childhood, yet their devoted love, which is sensible in every aspect of the narrative, might not be able reach those who do not call themselves fans.
“GMK’s main success lies in its ability to truly speak to the imagination of the spectator – something the recent Hollywood efforts have struggled to accomplish.”
“A enlightening chat with Norman England, the author of “Behind The Kaiju Curtain” (2021)”
“A wonderful and refreshing blend between the jidai-geki/chanbara and the kaiju genre.”
Gamera 3: Revenge of Iris is, without a doubt, the best film of the Heisei Gamera trilogy.
A great sequel that delivers everything what Kajju fans desire, but in a less thrilling manner than the first reboot film did.
A successful reboot that succeeds in honouring Gamera’s classic past, while also evolving this iconic Kaiju in a meaningful way.
