I didn't remember this movie . . . until you mentioned Burl Ives.  Then it all came rushing back to me in all its network TV ugliness.

How did they get their boat way up on a rock like that?  They're going to have a hell of a time explaining it to the insurance company.

Boy, am I glad I'm not the only one that thought "It's Gamera!" when I saw the sea turtle.

You forgot the worst scene of all, when the 100ft demon-turtle sneaks up on the scientist in the lab.  Classic.

Weird... the first and fourth picture remind of The Blue Lagoon.

The part of the movie with the boy and girl playing on the beach and finding the turtle reminded me of that film as well.  Not so much later, which is due to Magnus' clothing and the scenery.  The shell necklace that Magnus wears probably helped you associate the other scene with "The Blue Lagoon."

Hey, a hybrid film that adds Gamera to "The Blue Lagoon" could be fun.  That or "The Blue Lagoon" crossed with "Shock Waves."

How did they get their boat way up on a rock like that?  They're going to have a hell of a time explaining it to the insurance company.

That's the turtle.  It's upset about having a helicopter kamikaze into it and being harpooned by Carl Weathers.  The scenes with the model boat vary from barely acceptable to completely silly, but the worst has to be when Carl Weathers shoots the turtle with his harpoon bazooka.   They used some split screen shots with a real Carl and a stop motion turtle; that looks generally OK.  For the rest of the shots they tried something else.  It looks like there is a huge bubbling tarp in the ocean near the (real) ship; that doesn't look so OK.

You forgot the worst scene of all, when the 100ft demon-turtle sneaks up on the scientist in the lab.  Classic. 

When it eats Magnus' father!  That is plain awful, and then most of the mansion slides down into the water since the scientists watery grotto of a laboratory is in a cave under his house.

Yes....Gamera once gave an interview about his "Hollywood" experience. He was kicked back in a Tokyo lounge and in his perfectly unaccented English described how his American director was a real ego-maniac.

Gamera was so discusted with the final product he drowned his sorrows in Canadian Whiskey and gained 50 tons eating most of the West Coast.

He also got an injunction to prevent the use of his name in the title or credits. As you may notice "The Turtle" was listed as played by Alan Smithee, a much used pseudonym.

After rehab and the Atkins diet he got back to his true form and went back to Japan, his wife and child.

This movie could have been so much better, yes there is a giant turtle but you barely see it, and its near the end of the movie.

The special effects for the boats are ridiculous you can see they are miniature models. I always enjoy seeing Carl Weathers in a movie, is best was of course Action Jackson.

The movie drags on and on and on and on and has almost no action nothing. There are a few cool parts but thats it.

Instead of buying the dvd try to catch it on cable tv if it ever comes up.

Last year I finally got to tape this via camcorder off of You tube and while I agree it's not of a super good quality the picture is at most watchable, still Im just happy to finally have a copy of this movie.
