Good shit but I must've watched an edited version because there was no scene where Robert Mitchum keeps stepping on a buncha rakes?????????
I was in the mood for some stupid shit and boy this delivered. I remember thinking Zombie Ass was too much of a… uh… good(?) thing? But this thing really hit a sweet spot. You ever see a sushi take a bite outta YOU?! Well, that's 90% of what this movie is. Sushi takin' bites outta people and yuckin' it up like they're ghoulies doin' it. In general there's a lot of dumb cartooney sounds added in post to the movie. Smooches, farts, two sushi fuckin' on a tree… you name it. Total party movie.
Way too safe and retains barely anything of what made kid-oriented Gamera great in the 60s. Shit is just afraid to get weird, and wastes a lot of time on low stakes "How to raise your Gamera." I kept wondering why there's so much Sgt. Frog in this but then I remembered this is a Kadokawa production.
"With a good script, a good director can produce a masterpiece. With the same script, a mediocre director can produce a passable film. But with a bad script even a good director can’t possibly make a good film. For truly cinematic expression, the camera and the microphone must be able to cross both fire and water. The script must be something that has the power to do this."
