Continuing with our Gamera marathon, Ingrid and I tackle the second of Shusuke Kaneko’s Gamera trilogy, Gamera 2: Attack of Legion! This one is our favorite movie in the trilogy and for good reason!
It’s been a year since Gamera defeated Gayos, and a new threat has come crashed onto earth from outer space! What is it? A silicon based life form later known as Legion! And it wants to override all life on earth! Well Gamera has come in to stop it! And this time humanity is willing to help!
Asagi also returns and it’s pretty clear she is still bound to Gamera, and she has an influence on him! But as things continue on, Legion’s forces continue to take over and overwhelm Gamera! What’s more, it’s becoming more and more apparent that Gamera is in this NOT for humanity, but for earth itself! Will he continue to be an ally? Well that’s a question to ask later.
So come and see what Ingrid and I thought of this movie as we gush about it!
